Relaxed and elegant small sailing ship cruising, "180 Degrees from Ordinary"
Windstar. Windstar's 150-to-300 passenger luxury computerized sailing ships offer cruises "180 degrees from ordinary," and consistently earn a rating as one of the world's best vacation experiences. Just because you're on a sailing ship doesn't mean you do without amenities: all outside cabins, excellent food and staff, 24-hour room service, a small pool and hot tub, queen/twin beds, terrycloth robes, even a small piano bar and casino.
Highlights. A Windstar cruise can be described as "resort casual but elegant." You can visit the bridge most any time, and there are no formal or theme nights. If you've never been on a small ship, you'll be amazed at where Windstar can take you. The ships have a sports deck featuring snorkeling/SCUBA gear, sailboards, water skis, kayaks and boats. Shore trips focus on active excursions.
Who Loves Windstar? Windstar is perfect for upscale honeymooners preferring to focus on each other, active individuals, past cruisers looking for a big-ship alternative, and people who prefer not to dress up. Avoid Windstar if you like mega-ships, want lots of entertainment, have young kids, or require wheelchair access.
Locations. Windstar focuses on "warm," as in Australia, the Caribbean, the Greek Isles and Mediterranean, and Europe.
Competition. Compare to Windjammer Barefoot Cruises.
Pricing. Brochure pricing starts at about $320 per day per person, including port charges, but excluding airfare.
