Teak-lined decks. Towering sails. A vacation on Windstar is the ultimate affair for those who love the sea. On board, you’ll discover a unique combination of romance with state-of-the-art luxury and convenience. Yet Windstar is small enough to indulge the every whim of 312 guests. And because they’re smaller than most, our ships can stop at the more exclusive ports and beaches, accessible only by yacht. Cruise to the magnificent Greek Isles, Mediterranean, Panama Canal, Caribbean or Costa Rica. Destinations you’ll experience in Windstar style.
On a Windstar ship you’re free to do as you please, on your own schedule. There’s no dress code. Five-star dining is informal and casually elegant (leave the ties and formal gowns at home), complemented by a wide selection of fine wines. Our spontaneous and gracious service offers one of the highest crew-to-passenger ratios. Often rated number one for our interesting itineraries, Windstar is truly an adventure in sailing, with a style all its own.
At nearly three times the size of her sister ships, the Wind Surf carries just 312 pampered guests in 154 total staterooms: 31 ocean-view suites (30 of which have his and her bathrooms), 2 Bridge Suites and 123 deluxe ocean-view staterooms. What that means in real terms is wide-open deck spaces, new services and lots of little extras that make a Windstar cruise remarkable
The Wind Surf is a sailing ship, but not in the traditional sense. This ship is all modern--from her five, 164-foot-high computerized masts with 27,000 feet of sails, to the DVD players and WiFi access in each cabin, to the water sport platform aft--all of these amenities and more make for a great cruise experience. The Wind Surf is large (as sailing ships go), with room for 308 passengers and 190 crew on 8 decks. Wind Surf's passenger space ratio of 47.8 is better than that of most larger cruise ships.
One word of note for sailing purists. The Wind Surf's amazing computer-controlled sails are raised electronically, and a computer keeps the ship on even keel via a water ballast system. Therefore, you will not find the rolling sensation felt on most sailing ships. On our Wind Surf cruise, we were in port most days and traveled at night, so the ship cruised without the engines for only a few hours. However, all on board loved seeing the white sails overhead, and none of us missed the rolling sensation.
