life on windstar
The World's Best Small Ship Cruise Line

You're closer to secluded coves, tiny villages, misty fjords. To ancient ruins, medieval alleyways, quaint marinas. To unspoiled beaches, unfamiliar cultures, undiscovered atolls. To enlivening your curiosity and awakening your sense of wonder. You're closer than ever to the kind of authentic and unforgettable experiences that you travel to find in the first place. You're about to board Windstar. And you're closer to all the places that larger ships can't reach. Welcome to a world of understated elegance and uncommon beauty. A world that leaves crowds and commonplace behind to find unique ports of call, and local, exotic cultures that are at once fascinating and wondrous. A world that's equal parts intimate, indulgent, and inspiring. Where the allure and beauty and magic of the places you sail to is equaled only by the ship that takes you there.

Entertainment

A day on board your Windstar ship is a day of choices, all of them good. Perhaps you’ll begin with a relaxing massage in World Spa by Windstar. Or maybe an invigorating workout in the Fitness Center. Even better, why not both? After a sumptuous lunch in Veranda, make a splash from the Watersports Platform off the ship’s stern. Everything you can think of for fun in the water is there — swimming, kayaking, sail-boarding, even water skiing. And it’s all complimentary, of course. Sun yourself on deck, take a dip in the whirlpool, then catch up on email ororder a cheese plate for your stateroom or suite. After dinner, dance to live music in the Lounge. This is your yacht, so of course you’re welcome on the Bridge, where the Captain and officers are delighted to share charts, routes, and vistas with you.
