WINDSTAR CRUISES

 

From the instant you see your Windstar yacht anchored in the harbor you will realize that you are “180 degrees from Ordinary,” Windstar’s tagline. Sailing and romance have always been conjoined. And this is not just cruising – this is sailing – and it is quite romantic. Windstar ships are officially motor-sail-yachts (msy). What this means is they are true sailing yachts with motorized capabilities. At the touch of a button, billowing white sails reach to the sky within two minutes. No wind – no problem; the motor will make sure you maintain schedule and arrive at your next harbor in a timely manner. Windstar even has an unusual “open-bridge” policy which allows guests to drop by and acquaint themselves with the captain and officers who will demonstrate the ships’ intriguing capabilities. See, Windstar is far from ordinary.

 

As one of only 148 privileged guests (312 on Wind Surf) sailing on Windstar is almost like being on board your own private yacht. Yes, these ships are intimate and the rewards are immense. On the teak deck the tranquil sounds of the passing sea are on occasion suddenly interrupted when the sails catch wind and you catch a view of them flailing against a brilliant blue sky. Soon you will pull in at a hidden cove, known only to other yachters. Now you begin to realize the joy of sensations few other tourist will even experience. Of course Windstar certainly does not require fancy dresses. Resort attire is perfectly acceptable. Windstar is luxurious, not snobbish.

 

Don’t fall for the misconception that this is like the old Windjammer ships. Your accommodations are simply – luxurious. Enjoy a cold beverage from your mini-fridge before you play your personal iPod from the Bose SoundDock. Slip beneath the luxurious linens and watch a DVD from the Library on your flat-screen TV. All rooms are ocean view so you will always see where you’ve been and better yet, where you are headed. In fact Windstar staterooms have all been recently renovated with lush leather headboards, soft new seascape colors and luxurious Egyptian cotton linens. In the bathroom you will find sumptuous L’Occitane en Provence products just for you on the granite countertop. Comfortable waffle-weave robes are waiting for you in the ample closet. And if you decide you like your stateroom so much you don’t want leave, order dinner. It will be served in courses.

 

Speaking of dining, Windstar places a strong emphasis on original fresh cuisine. The chef often shops in port for the freshest ingredients to be used that same evening. There’s banana’s and mangoes and other fruits blended into fruit smoothies. Fresh baked pastries and everything imaginable for breakfast, which you can enjoy on the Veranda. For dinner you can dine at the romantic Amphora on gourmet fare served on Rosenthal china, while sipping on vintage wine from Riedel stemware. Candles Grill, is the newest dining option, deck side on all Windstar ships. On the larger Wind Surf you can also enjoy hanger steaks in the bistro-style Degrees, or fresh seafood at Le Marche. Whatever you select, on Windstar you are able to dine with whomever and whenever you wish, without jacket or tie.

 

When you are not lounging in your stateroom or off eating gourmet for two, there are plenty of options to occupy yourself onboard. Less strenuous options include the Library for books, CD’s and DVD’s; and shopping in the Signature Shop. Or you can workout in the Gym; try your hand in the Casino; or checkout the many complimentary toys available to use from the Water Sports Platform on the back on each ship. Of course you can succumb to total and complete relaxation at the newly expanded WindSpa where a long list of treatments awaits you.

 

WHERE DOES WINDSTAR SAIL?

Start in the Caribbean during the winter months. From a base of St. Martin, Windstar sails roundtrip to yachting havens such as St. Barts, Virgin Gorda, St. Kitts, Tortola, and Jost Van Dyke, often staying overnight at these Caribbean treasures. Roundtrip from Barbados, Windstar sails to many of the above referenced ports plus St. Lucia, Dominica, Grenada, Tobago, The Grenadines and even Nevis. From a base of Puerto Caldera, Windstar offers a unique world of rain forests and national parks in and around Costa Rica while you transit the Panama Canal yacht-style during a magnificent 7-night itinerary.

 

Windstar sails Europe hard during the late spring, summer and early fall with all three vessels. We ask you, what could be better than yachting in the famed ports of the Mediterranean and Greek Islands? From Lisbon to Croatia and literally everywhere in between Windstar delivers you by yacht to Europe’s most romantic, breathtaking and often exotic destinations. Some of the "New"  European itineraries feature Casablanca & the Canary Islands; British Isles; a Gaelic Explorer consisting of Ireland & Scotland; and a 12-day Scandinavian Tapestry.

 

WHAT’S NEW ON WINDSTAR?

Windstar Cruises adds two spectacular new All suite Power yachts in 2015. Welcome Star Breeze and Star Pride, both former Seabourn ships. While these new additions lack the sails, they have been thoroughly made to look and feel like a Windstar ship. What impresses ULTIMATE the most is the new overnight stays in the likes of Josh van Dyke, BVI; Virgin Gorda, BVI; plus several late night departures designed to allow you to sample the night life in ports like St. Barts. While the European itineraries do not include many overnight stays they do include many late evening departures allowing you to enjoy the European night life in exciting ports.
