WIND STAR bow 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.

STAR PRIDE in Corinth CanalIn the last couple of years, Windstar has acquired 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 2018, for example, Windstar is offering 56 European cruises of seven to 11 days, plus two eastbound repositioning cruises from Caribbean ports to Lisbon.
