The food on these ships is 5 Star, with locally sourced ingredients and a made to order menu, you won’t find any long buffet lines here. The choices are simple but perfectly prepared. The options for entertainment and diversion on-board are varied—from a Tahitian dancing group in full costume to a lecture by a local archaeologist or naturalist, all will enrich your experience.
On these ships, you receive personalized attention. The chef walks around greeting diners and welcomes comments and feedback about the dishes, which are sumptuously well prepared. If you decide to get a massage you can relax and enjoy it without the added stress of someone pressuring you to purchase products.
You might take a cruise to the Southern Caribbean aboard the Wind Surf, a ship with a bevy of fine accents that will enhance your trip as you voyage over the seas. From the quality products you find in the bathroom to the tender steak with your lunch, you will feel completely taken care of aboard this or any fine vessel of the Windstar fleet.
Excellent excursions are available for you to choose from in every port. New in 2015, Windstar announced that every itinerary will include a spectacular onshore Private Event. Each event is bespoke to the region, complimentary and truly unique. Examples of Private Events include, an after-hours tour of the Celsus Library of Ephesus paired with an elegant, five course meal under the stars in the library courtyard while being serenaded by a trio from the Aegean Chamber Orchestra on the Greek Isles and Turkish Delights voyage; wine tasting and tour in Italy with traditional Sicilian lunch; tapas and folk dance lessons; and an equestrian ballet and sherry tasting.
Whether you're at breakfast or arriving from the airport, the crew upon your ship will make every effort to make sure you are taken care of, and you won't have to worry about carrying lots of extra cash - there is no tipping required. Whatever ship you choose, a Windstar Cruise is sure to become an amazing experience that you won't soon forget.
