WIND SURF photoWindstar Cruises focuses on the premium end of the cruise market with three unique "motor-sail-yachts": the 308-passenger Wind Surf (originally the Club Med I) and the more intimate Wind Star and Wind Spirit, which carry 148 guests each. Each vessel combines the atmosphere of a large sailing yacht with the comforts of a luxury cruise ship.

WIND SURF photoWindstar recently purchased three small, luxurious motorships from Seabourn Cruises (the Seabourn Pride, Spirit, and Legend). These have allowed Windstar to expand its cruising schedule: In 2016, for example, Windstar will offer nearly 150 seven-, eight-, and nine-day cruises in the Mediterranean, Aegean, and Northern Europe.
