Overview

The Essence of Small Ship Sailing

Wind Star is a sleek, 4-masted sailing yacht accommodating 148 guests. With four decks and a gross tonnage of 5,307, Wind Star feels like your own private yacht.

Wind Star features wide open, teak decks - quite unusual for small ships. Guests will find hidden nooks for private moments giving them a feeling of being on their own private veranda.

All staterooms have ocean views, queen beds, flat-screen TV with DVD player and Bose SoundDock speakers for Apple iPods. The Owner's Suite includes a sitting area.

Wind Star offers two primary dining venues. AmphorA restaurant offers gourmet, course-by-course cuisine in the evenings and Veranda restaurant offers casual buffet and full-service dining for breakfast and lunch. All dining is open seating. And, for dining under the stars, make a reservation for Candles which features steaks and skewers.

Wind Star amenities include: WindSpa, Watersports Platform, Casino, Lounge, Library, Pool, and Hot Tub.

Entertainment

A day on board your Windstar yacht is a day of choices, all of them good. Perhaps you'll begin with a relaxing massage in WindSpa. Or maybe an invigorating workout in the Fitness Center. Even better, why not both? After a sumptuous lunch in Veranda, make a splash from the Watersports Platform off the ship's stern. Everything you can think of for fun in the water is there - swimming, kayaking, sail-boarding, even water skiing. And it's all complimentary, of course. Sun yourself on deck, take a dip in the whirlpool, then catch up on email or grab a DVD for your stateroom or suite in the Library. After dinner, dance to live music in the Lounge. This is your yacht, so of course you're welcome on the Bridge, where the Captain and officers are delighted to share charts, routes, and vistas with you.

As you prepare for another amazing Windstar day, enjoy a nightcap anywhere you like - on deck, in the Lounge, or why not let us bring it to your suite or stateroom? Your day ends just as it began, blissfully.

Here's the perfect place for a romantic tete-a-tete under the stars in Candles, Windstar's signature outdoor restaurant transformed by night into a dreamlike paradise. Delectable cuisine, memorable surroundings, inspired wine airings.
