Sailing under the banner of its appropriate tag line “180º From Ordinary,” Windstar Cruises offers an alternative to the typical cruise or resort vacation. The Windstar passenger sees the world from a romantic sailing ship with luxurious accommodations, a casual yet elegant atmosphere, and exquisite service and cuisine.
Windstar Cruise Ships
Carrying just 148 to 308 guests, Windstar Cruise ships exude a private yacht-like atmosphere creating camaraderie and lasting friendships between fellow sailors. Windstar cruise ships are officially masted-sail-yachts (msy), but the designation belies the vessels unique rigging. Unfurling in two minutes at the push of a button, billowing white sails reach to the sky. All functions are operated from the bridge by computer micro-chips and navigational devices. The unusual “open-bridge” operation allows guests to drop by and acquaint themselves with the veteran captains and officers who demonstrate the ship’s intriguing capabilities to modern day explorers.
Windstar cruise ships’ unique concept of sailing has led the cruise industry in the luxury small ship, casual attire, and alternative dining arenas. Pioneering and refining these concepts has earned Windstar Cruise Line an excellent reputation and market niche, winning the allegiance of a new generation of contemporary cruise vacationers, one-third of whom are first-time cruisers.
Teak decking, rich wood interiors, an attentive service staff, intimate surroundings, and eclectic artwork are some of the extraordinary elements, which have become synonymous with Windstar Cruises. Other features unique to the Wind Surf include deluxe suites, a Business/Internet Center, The Bistro, and the WindSpa offering a full array of spa treatments, consultative, health and fitness programs.
An interesting mix of shore excursions and complimentary water sports activities are available at each destination. Passengers may find themselves slicing through Caribbean waters aboard an actual America’s Cup racing yacht, or exploring archaeological ruins in Greece, the “Cradle of Civilization.” Water buffs can enjoy complimentary water-skiing, windsurfing, snorkeling, kayaking and “banana” boat rides from the ship’s aft Water Sports Platform.
Windstar Cruise line’s award-winning Signature Cuisine consists of over 380 innovative recipes of acclaimed famous chef, Joachim Splichal, co-founder of the Patina Group in Los Angeles. These were created to heighten the cruise experience. He has provided ongoing consultation and training for Windstar’s chefs, as well as created new recipes for the Wind Surf and its alternative, Splichal-inspired restaurant, The Bistro. The ”Splichal Signature” approach to cuisine gives Windstar Cruises guests the most distinctive and satisfying gastronomical experience at sea.
