Windstar knows the way to Europe

Unrivaled access to the world's most intimate ports

France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Croatia, Iceland, Norway and more. Each country has its own unique cultures, traditions, flavors, and languages and Windstar knows the way to deliver you to the doorsteps of them all. Explore some of the most remarkable and largely secret small ports like Croatia’s Rovinj, Italy’s Sorrento, Norway’s Stavanger and France’s Sanary-sur-Mer, to name just a few.

Our sailing Wind Class and all-suite Star Plus Class yachts are also small enough to maneuver into the heart of many of Europe’s marquee ports. This unique access means more time to immerse yourself in these ports’ iconic sights, cultures, and tastes while on land. Enjoy overnight stays and late-evening visits that allow you to watch the sunset and take in the nightlife.

Serving just 148 to 342 guests, our sailing and all-suite yachts are guided by the wind and the stars to nearly 75 itineraries and more than 150 ports throughout Europe.

To truly embrace Europe like a local and make the most of your time there, choose a longer Star Collector or a Cruise Tour that extends your voyage on land.

Star Collector voyages combine some of our most popular cruise itineraries for a more in-depth exploration of each region. Featuring longer voyages from 13 to 73 days and few repeated ports, take advantage of your time and unpack only once. With Windstar Cruise Tours, we’ll show you the best of the land and the sea and take you in-land to explore more of the culture and natural beauty of the region to complement your ports of call. We’ll handle all of the logistics on land with tickets to attractions, hotel accommodations, and select meals.

Windstar Cruises gives you the freedom to tailor your cruise with All-Inclusive Fares that feature unlimited Wi-Fi; beer, wine, and cocktails; and gratuities. Or select Cruise Only Fares with amenities purchased a la carte.

Our entire fleet is thoughtfully designed to offer you numerous amenities to indulge in while you’re on board. Enjoy the luxuries you’d expect to find — dining experiences developed through our partnership as the Official Cruise Line of the James Beard Foundation, World Spa by Windstar — and others you’ll be delighted to discover, like our Watersports Platform that lets you dip your toes directly into the impossibly blue waters of the Mediterranean.
