Windstar – What’s Different
Windstar’s ships can enter ports that are inaccessible to larger cruise liners, meaning we tend
to visit more off-the-beaten-path and unique ports, like Barbuda, Montserrat, Wrangell, and
Vinuatu. Also due to Windstar’s smalls size, we can dock in the heart of major ports (like Old
Town Dubrovnik) as larger cruise ships pass by.
Windstar has a unique Open Bridge Policy, meaning that guests can wander onto the bridge
when the ship is at sea, chat with the crew (the captain is there quite often), and even sit down
and enjoy a cup of Windstar’s exclusive Bridge Blend coffee with him/her.
When anchored in many locations, guests can swim, kayak, snorkel and paddleboard right
from the Watersports Platform on the back of the yacht.
Windstar’s Wind Surf is the largest sailing ship in the world. She is two football fields long and
has five masts, towering 221 feet and supporting 26,881 sq. feet of sails. Her speed record
under sail power alone is 15.8 knots.
