9 Reasons why you should pick Windstar Cruises

Need some vitamin sea? Then it is time to board a yacht to paradise (it’s more affordable than you think). Here are nine reasons you should pick Windstar Cruises for your next vacation:

Back-to-back sailing

Extending your vacation couldn’t be easier. With Windstar, you can combine two back-to-back trips. But there is no need to worry about visiting all the same ports. Instead, on trips of 13 days (or longer), you’ll see more of the region and experience new cultures and delicious cuisines.

Say goodbye to packing a second suitcase. All Star Collector Voyages include complimentary laundry, so you won’t need to overpack.

Perfectly sized yachts

Escape the large crowds and create unforgettable memories. Instead of ships filled with thousands of people, Windstar’s yachts range from 148 to 342 guests. The perfectly sized cruises allow you to experience the destination authentically while creating lifelong friendships with fellow travellers.

Their cruises are a foodie dreamland. You can visit a market tour with a chef to taste local specialties or pick out fresh ingredients to have a meal curated for you. In addition, Windstar Cruises works with the James Beard Foundation so that you can try dishes from celebrity chefs and sommeliers.

When cruising with Windstar, the crew treats hospitality as a calling, not just a job. They pay attention to every little detail to make your cruise that much more magical. To top it all off, the ration of crew to guest is 1:1.5.

Visit unique locations

Windstar Cruises give you the freedom to explore cities and villages like no one else. Their ships access the best-kept secret coves, remote islands, and charming villages before docking overnight in iconic cities full of sparkling lights.

They curate trips based on the smaller, less-visited ports, where locals go to vacation, authentic food and traditions take the place of tourist fare, and where you still stumble upon deserted beaches and bustling markets filled with unfamiliar produce and colourful characteristics.

A yacht for every cruising style
