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 (now renamed the Star Pride, Star Breeze, and Star Legend).

The new ships have allowed Windstar to expand its cruising schedule: In 2017, for example, Windstar offers 157 cruises of seven to 12 days in the Mediterranean, Adriatic, Aegean, and Northern Europe.
