A Windstar voyage feels like an adventurous expedition aboard your very own private yacht.
A Windstar voyage feels like an adventurous expedition aboard your very own private yacht. The sleek, four-masted Windstar ships provide first-class facilities, exceptional service and gourmet dining as you journey to the world’s most exotic destinations.
Smaller ships can venture where huge liners can’t and with fewer than 310 guests on each voyage, a Windstar cruise feels far more intimate than conventional Mediterranean and Caribbean cruises. The itineraries are perfect for couples and newlyweds. Find a hidden corner and sit on sun-drenched teak decks under tall billowing sails and bright blue skies for a truly rejuvenating break away.
Windstar cruises are intentionally less structured than other cruise lines so you get more freedom to do what you want, when you want. To make the most of the trip itself, Windstar cruises set out from foreign ports rather than UK shores.
There’s a broad range of voyages from plenty of embarkation points so you’re sure to find a Mediterranean cruise in your desired destination. There are week-long cruises departing from Lisbon (Portugal), Barcelona (Spain), Istanbul (Turkey) and Piraeus (Greece). As all of these destinations have major international airports, it’s easy to spend a week on a standard beach holiday before setting sail on an unforgettable cruise.
The Mediterranean is a living, breathing museum and there will be lots of shore time to take in the world-famous historic sites, rugged mountain scenery, ancient cities and glorious beaches of the region.
If you’re after picture-postcard scenery of palm trees and white sands with a chance for some exhilarating watersports straight off the back of the boat, Windstar Caribbean cruisescould be just the thing for you. You couldn’t feel further away from dreary days in the UK as you’re enjoying a cool cocktail on the idyllic beaches of St.Lucia, Grenada and Barbados.
The elegant Wind Star has over 10,000 square feet of open teak deck to enjoy so you can find your own private veranda. The six self-furling sails add to the majesty of the ship and set it apart from huge hulking cruise liners.
All of the staterooms come complete with luxury linen, a fully stocked mini-bar and a flat screen TV and DVD player. A Bose speaker dock also comes as standard so you can play all your favourite tunes straight from your iPod.
You can do as little or as much as you like on a Windstar fly cruise. Read your holiday novel on a comfortable chaise longue, have a relaxing aromatherapy massage at the spa, or work out in the state-of-the-art fitness centre. You can also try your hand at waterskiing and kayaking from the dedicated watersports platform or even try your luck at the casino.
You’ll receive VIP treatment from the award-winning international staff aboard the Windstar. Indulge in 5* dining and fine wine at one of the ship’s two restaurants - Candles and the AmphorA Restaurant. The Windstar’s open seating policy means you can eat whenever you’re hungry and whenever is convenient for you. Enjoy plush circular booths in AmphorA or watch the glorious sunsets turn to a canopy of starlit skies at Candles.
If you’re looking for a stylish cruise with the feel of life on a private yacht, book your place aboard the graceful Windstar vessel this year. Lavish, chic and small enough to tuck into hidden harbour and cosy coves, the Windstar brings you the freedom of yacht sailing with the luxurious creature comforts of a classic cruise.
