Step aboard a ship of Windstar Cruises and enter a world of casual elegance such as you would find on a private luxury yacht, with fewer than 300 guests for ultimate pampering. Anchor in secluded coves and sail into the heart of iconic cities that are not accessible by larger ships. Surround yourself in the tranquility of unregimented relaxed cruising in a sophisticated atmosphere, with no crowds. This is what a vacation should be.
Star Pride’s understated elegance is even more evident on the 212-guest, all-suite, ship after her extensive multi-million dollar refurbishment. Remodeled and stunning, she offers luxury cruisers much to enjoy during their “private yacht-style” vacation with Windstar Cruises. Many upgrades include remodeled suites, public areas and outside decks.
James Beard award-winning and recognized chefs will host three separate culinary-themed sailings in 2016 as part of Windstar Cruises partnership with the James Beard Foundation. Acclaimed chefs will be Michel Nischan, Maria Hines as well as Matt and Kate Jennings. These James Beard Foundation Culinary Collection sailings will provide a wondrous time for the gourmand through cooking demonstrations, additional nightly dishes orchestrated by the headlining chef and one-on-one interaction.
