  • Wind Star is a sleek, 4-masted sailing yacht accommodating 148 guests. With four decks and a gross tonnage of 5,307, Wind Star feels like your own private yacht.

    Wind Star features wide open, teak decks—quite unusual for small ships. Guests will find hidden nooks for private moments giving them a feeling of being on their own private veranda.

    All staterooms have ocean views, queen beds, flat-screen TV with DVD player, and Bose SoundDock speakers for Apple iPods. The Owner’s Suite includes a sitting area.

    Wind Star offers two primary dining venues. AmphorA restaurant offers gourmet, course-by-course cuisine in the evenings and Veranda restaurant offers casual buffet and full-service dining for breakfast and lunch. All dining is open seating. And, for dining under the stars, make a reservation forCandles which features steaks and skewers.

    Wind Star amenities include: WindSpa, Watersports Platform, Casino, Lounge, Library, Pool, and Hot Tub.

    Greek Islands

    10/2016 Greek Islands
    Full Review
    Highly recommend this cruise. However make sure you book a cabin in front as to avoid the constant noise of the engines. Also, the use of the sails is limited to proper wind conditions which only happened one time during the entire cruise. Not a major factor though. Only drawback was when we anchored off of Santorini, probably the most beautiful of all the islands, we had to leave by 4pm. An overnite stay at this location is very desirable.
    Pros Ship was in excellent condition. Food was fabulous. Accommodations were very good. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Tours were well organized.
    Cons Use of the wifi was sold in packages were not convenient if you just wanted limited usage. Network for TV viewing was very sporadic. Needs to be updated with latest technology. Unfortunately this ship did not have cabin balconies which would have been great as you sail past the islands.

    Greek Islands and Turkish Delights

    6/2016 Greece and Turkey
    Full Review
    We were surprised to have a personal escort onto the ship - no big 'sorting hall', and then we were each personally greeted with a handshake from all the ships officers as we boarded. This set the tone for personalized service throughout the voyage. We were also impressed at the superior guides and better tours offered due to the smaller groups, compared to that offered by larger cruise lines. The food was delectable and the friendly service was great.
    Pros Intimacy of the smaller ship, personal recognition, better service.
    Cons No balcony in the staterooms.

    3/2014 Barbados and the Grenadines
    Full Review
    We planned this cruise with my husband's adult son, daughter-in-law, and daughter over a year in advance. It was a thrilling adventure and good way to celebrate our 30th anniversary, my husband's 85th, and his daughter's 65th. We chose the Barbados to Barbados trip, sailing through the Grenadines, and it was a great itinerary of small islands. The yacht is small, holding around 140 passengers and 80 crew, but there was always something to keep everyone occupied, be it water sports, touring the islands, sunbathing on the pool deck, reading, or even watching one of the many movies in their CD library. The rooms were moderately small and beautifully renovated, with well-planned spaces. The staff couldn't have been more friendly, courteous, or helpful, from cabin stewards, to dining room staff, and even the engineers. The food was excellent, including special barbecues. If you're looking for evening entertainment, the nighttime piano bar and small casino were it, but we didn't miss the productions offered on larger ships. Would recommend this cruise to anyone (except families with small children).
    Pros Small ship! Nicely appointed suites; exceptionally attentive service, great food.
    Cons Hard to find one, but if you're looking for lots of evening entertainment, you won't find it here.
