Windstar is unique in the small ship group because it operates both sailing and motor yachts. The Wind Star, Wind Surf and Wind Spirit are sailing yachts that carry from 148 to 310 passengers. The motor yachts Star Pride, Breeze and Legend were purchased from Seabourn and each has a passenger capacity of 212.

The moment you board you’ll find an ever-attentive crew at your service, providing you with what you want and need. The Windstar staff-to-guest ratio is 1:1.5, and it shows. It’s why Windstar has won many awards.

The size of these vessels is what makes it possible for you to have unique curated experiences at places the larger ships cannot go. The shore excursions are memorable adventures that are designed to be suited to the passenger demographic from certified SCUBA dives and rejuvenating baths in volcanic springs, to archaeological wonders and regional wine tastings.

Small group excursions can take you to meet locals eager to share their homes, cuisines and cultures. It’s an unparalleled way to experience other lands and see the world from a new perspective.
