The Advantages of Small Ships
Europe is renowned for history, art, architecture, and cuisine. Recognizing where to find the best of it all is something Windstar is known for. Our small ships are nimble enough to navigate into the tiny harbors like Portree in Scotland and can dock closer to historical town centers such as Venice and Dubrovnik, giving you more time to explore. Our port-intensive itineraries are designed to show you both the big cities and the small villages; our carefully crafted small-group excursions give you intimate access to local cultures through market tours, food and wine tastings, and much more.

Adventures Await
Windstar’s Northern Europe and Mediterranean voyages and Cruise Tours allow you to experience the very best of land and sea. Skip the tourist lines and enjoy a small-group tour of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. Take an overland exploration of Italy’s Lake Como with a cruise through the Adriatic Sea. Or glide through the narrow Kiel Canal to move between the North Sea and the Baltic, a journey through the heart of Germany reserved for only small ships such as ours. Every moment will be an adventure 180 degrees from ordinary aboard Windstar.
