Windstar stands out in the luxury cruise market for its unique blend of yacht-style cruising with the amenities and services of larger ships. This distinctive approach provides travelers with an intimate and personalized voyage experience.

From the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean to the ancient allure of the Mediterranean, and the remote wonders of the South Pacific, Windstar's destinations cater to the adventurous spirit while providing unparalleled luxury. Reflecting its relaxed yet refined atmosphere, Windstar adopts a "country club casual" dress code, eliminating the need for formal wear. This approach resonates with travelers seeking a luxury experience without the fuss of formal nights.

This philosophy extends to the use of the ships' water sports platforms, where guests can engage in snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, and other water-based activities directly from the ship. Onboard entertainment is low-key, fostering a tranquil atmosphere that encourages relaxation and connection among passengers.
