Windstar Cruises

Discover a career ‘180° from ordinary’
with Windstar Cruises

Windstar Cruises is Taking Small Ship Cruising In a Different Direction.

Windstar’s fleet of three sailing yachts and three motor yachts, with a capacity of 148 to 342-guests, give the guests a personalised approach, bringing them closer to each destination and every port, so they can see the world from new perspectives.
Windstar have scoured the world for amazing places just this side of unreachable and seek out the most authentic ways for guests to experience them. The itineraries are port intensive, often with exclusive landfalls larger ships cannot access. The six-ship fleet visit over 170 ports worldwide including those in Northern Europe, Mediterranean, Caribbean, Costa Rica and the Panama Canal, Tahiti and the South Pacific, as well as more recently – Alaska, Canada / New England and Asia.

The $250 Million Star Plus Initiative


Just like they have done with small ship cruising, Windstar is taking “renovation” in a different direction.
Windstar are in the exciting process of transforming their three all-suite Star Class ships – Star Breeze, Star Legend and Star Pride – end-to-end to offer guests more comfort in-suite, more delight on deck and more surprises in store.
Each yacht will carry 312 guests in total. The additional capacity keeps Windstar squarely in the ‘under 350’ person category. They will continue to offer the world’s best small ship experience but with more amenities that their guests have been asking them for such as additional dining venues and a world-class Spa and Fitness Centre.
Windstar are making these improvements to ensure these beloved ships may continue to operate well into the future!
