The Shores Less Traveled

Windstar Cruises’ yacht-style voyages take you to small ports with big draws

A Venetian-built stone fortress towers above the cluster of coastal medieval buildings as you glide into the small harbor of Greece’s Nafplion, waving to private yachts from your own well-appointed vessel. Your excursion to idyllic destinations such as this is one of the many we make possible with Windstar Cruises when you reserve your small-ship voyage to the world’s most exclusive ports of call.

Whether you choose to sail aboard a multi-masted sailing vessel or a speedier twin-propeller power yacht, Windstar’s six luxury ships can tuck into tiny Mediterranean nooks and anchor at small Tahitian and Caribbean ports for up-close encounters in remote locales. With no more than 310 passengers on board, you’ll forge new friendships and share special moments to last a lifetime.

Smaller is Better

Step away from the crowds. See more while enjoying intimate cultural experiences, and connect with parts of the world that larger ships cannot reach. Here are just a few of our favorite small ports that will give you life-changing, unforgettable moments.

From the palm-fringed shores of French Polynesia to the ancient architectural wonders of the Greek islands, your Windstar Cruises experience is filled with ways to connect you deeper to the land and culture. Every voyage includes a complimentary onshore Private Event to enhance your local experience, and onboard experts educate and entertain with their personal insight. Each day of your adventure culminates in a leisurely meal with friends and cocktails on the deck before retiring to your spacious stateroom or suite to dream of another day exploring new shores that others rarely get to experience.
