Windstar Cruises navigates your dreams beyond the horizon.


Only WindStar brings you close enough so you can truly experience it.

Each of Windstar Cruises yachts accommodates between 148 to 342 guests. This intimacy provides you with the luxury of time, space, and freedom to immerse yourself in both the journey and the destination – in ways you may never have imagined possible.


Sailing or all-suite yachts, Windstar knows the way! The world’s best small ship cruise line.

Perfectly Sized, Newly Transformed

Banish cliches, toss aside regimen, steer clear of stuffy. These perfectly sized yachts, fresh from a $250 million dollar renovation, make it possible to flip the script on cruising. Free yourself from crowds and indulge your senses, especially your sense of awe.
Experience cultures in ways that are personal and authentic, with the power to change your perspective. With 148-342 guests, a Windstar yacht is large enough to pamper, yet small enough to explore secluded coves and docks in the heart of charming villages, sparkling cities, and remote islands.

Authentic Experiences

Yes, our yachts are beautiful, but their real beauty lies in how close they can get you to the kind of authentic, immersive experiences you’re seeking. Have dinner with a Croatian family in their village home, and see what life is like from a local perspective. Snorkel with whale sharks off the coast of La Paz. Our carefully curated onboard lecturers deepen and enhance your experience with an insider’s look at intriguing local topics.

Shore Excursions

You don’t want to just dip a toe in local culture, you want to dive into the deep end, and that’s exactly what Windstar shore excursions are designed to do. All excursions are created to provide authentic local experiences — the kind travelers like you are looking for. And with more than 2,000 excursions to choose from, you can experience your destination in whatever way is most meaningful to you, whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast, a foodie, a history buff or someone who loves to get to know the faces behind the many places we travel.

All the Comforts of Home

You’re jet setting all over the world, but the best part is coming back to the comfort of a well-appointed private space. A place to unwind and rest, to reflect on the day’s adventures. From the plush leather headboard to the fine Egyptian linens and marble bathroom. Enjoy the thoughtfully designed spaces, with more room for storage than you’ve ever imagined finding on a ship, and the luxurious touches just for your pleasure, like L’Occitane bath products.
Everything is made to order for your enjoyment. Soft lighting. Beautiful artwork. Soothing, seascape color schemes. Every stateroom, every suite has been redesigned to Windstar’s exacting standards and matchless style. Go ahead and slip into your cozy robe and comfy slippers and surrender to the mesmerizing ocean view.

Why choose Windstar? Freedom.

With Windstar there is no schedule to keep. Except your own. The difference is that instead of jam-packed onboard programs, you can visit local markets with the chef, drop by the open bridge for an impromptu lesson in chart reading, share bottles of wine and stories with your fellow guests or listen to live music in the lounge. For those brave enough, you can also jump off the yacht from the Watersports Platform. The most important reason to choose Windstar – it allows you to do the things you want to do when you travel with a dedicated crew who will work tirelessly to ensure that every little detail is taken care of.
