Seattle-based Windstar Cruises operates three sailing yachts and, in the coming two years, three small cruise ships. Windstar is known for their pampering without pretense and their ability to visit the hidden harbors and secluded coves of the world's most treasured destinations. Unique touches include an open bridge where passengers can visit at any time and a watersports platform in the ship's bow.

Carrying just 148 to 312 guests, Windstar ships exude a private-yacht-like atmosphere creating camaraderie and lasting friendships between fellow sailors. Every day aboard Windstar brings the promise of new horizons and harbors to explore.

Teak decking, rich wood interiors, an attentive service staff, intimate surroundings, eclectic artwork, exceptional signature cuisine featuring both light and vegetarian menu selections, and an extensive wine list are some of the extraordinary elements which have become synonymous with Windstar.

An interesting mix of shore excursions and complimentary water sports activities are available at each destination. Passengers may find themselves slicing through Caribbean waters aboard an actual America's Cup racing yacht, or exploring archaeological ruins in Greece, the "Cradle of Civilization." Water buffs can enjoy complimentary water-skiing, windsurfing, snorkeling, and kayaking from the ship's aft Water Sports Platform.

Windstar is renowned for its personalized service. It was ranked #1 in the Condé Nast Traveler Reader's Choice Awards in the small ship category. The cruise line will visit 50 nations at 150 ports in Europe, South Pacific, Southeast Asia, Arabia, the Caribbean, and Central America.
