Explore The Destinations & Discover Your Dream Journey
Mountains erupted from the tundra, rising higher than any others in North America. Glaciers clawed their way across the landscape, scratching deep fjords into the coast and scouring archipelagos from the sea. And in the aftermath of these geologic gyrations, wildlife and marine life flourished, adapting to a land of extremes. Come. Gaze upon wondrous sheets of topaz ice and rivers thick with spawning salmon. Navigate narrow fjords whose secrets are only revealed to small cruise ships like ours. Find your way to Russian cathedrals, Tsimshian villages, and a greater understanding of why they call this the Great Land.
Nowhere else in the world will you find such a stunning juxtaposition of ancient traditions and contemporary cultures. Mystic temples give way to soaring skyscrapers while tranquil, timeless villages neighbor pulsating, modern cities. Windstar brings you the best of both worlds, taking you to the heart of cosmopolitan marvels like Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Tokyo and the exotic shores of small villages and unspoiled islands of Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
Long before Columbus, Vikings crossed the Labrador Sea from Greenland to settle in L’Anse Aux Meadows. Centuries later, Portuguese fishermen, Basque whalers, French trappers, and English pilgrims would follow and discover a Promised Land where nature nurtures both body and soul. Here, where the sun first kisses North America, explorer Jacques Cartier found a place where “the scenery is indeed worth seeing and can’t be properly described in words.” The ravishing lighthouse-studded coast still inspires awe. Manna from the sea still delights palates. And small cruise ships like ours still ply these waters with a freedom denied to larger cruise ships.
Candy-colored cocktails sipped in seaside watering holes. Carefree days followed by calypso-flavored nights. These are the siren songs that lure anyone with a yacht and a yearning to escape to the incomparable Caribbean Islands. Whether you’re cruising through turquoise waters or lazing on powdery white beaches, the glamorous harbors and unknown coves of this area remain a hidden treasure.
Natural and man-made wonders combine in this exotic region where you are an explorer by day with cocktails on the fantail of your luxury yacht by night. Costa Rica is one of the most ecologically diverse places on earth over landscapes of rainforest, lakes, cloudforests, volcanoes, and more, boasting an impressive variety of wildlife. Learn more about their history, flora and fauna from a local Naturalist on board and transit the massive Panama Canal during daylight hours. Against all this color and adventure, your white yacht rests at anchor awaiting your return from a delightful day of exploring.
Extend your Panama Canal cruise or Costa Rica cruise with our land packages featuring the Monteverde Cloudforest and Tortuguero National Park

The Acropolis at sunset. A moonlight supper at the ancient Celsus Library in Ephesus. The sugar-cube houses of Santorini shimmering in the mid-day sun. Like arms joined in a syrtaki dance, one incomparable experience follows another, and your elegant white ship gives you a front row seat to it all. Frame the famous windmills of Mykonos in your lens. Feast on mouthwatering mezes and ouzo under a cerulean sky. Get deliciously lost in the medieval alleyways of Monemvasia. Dwell, if just for a time, in the land of gods.
Let Windstar’s Italian cruises whisk you away to charming villages, pristine beaches and legendary cities with unique itineraries that let you discover Italy as it was meant to be seen. From the picturesque pastel towns that line the Amalfi Coast to enchanting islands such as Sicily and Elba, you’ll explore breathtaking sights in charismatic small ports and beautiful hidden harbors without missing the remarkable history of larger cities such as Rome or Venice. Discover a more intimate Italy by day and unwind back onboard with the pampered, personalized touch of Windstar Cruises.
Surrounded by wonders like the magnificent Cinque Terre, the culturally transcendent Alhambra, and the Belem Tower monument, it is easy to fall in love with the Mediterranean. With unique cruise itineraries and local Destination Discovery Events, Windstar brings you closer to this spectacular part of the world. Cruise the Guadalquivir River, the only navigable river in Spain spanning 408 miles, to Seville. Anchor in the heart of Old Town Dubrovnik as larger cruise ships pass by. Visit a local Mediterranean market with our Windstar Chef, enjoy local experiences in interesting locales such as Giardini Naxos, Portofino, and Mallorca and see a new port almost every day with never more than one sea day.
Fiestas are a way of life in Mexico, fitting for a country with so much to celebrate. A virtual aquarium offshore in the Sea of Cortez. Mayan temples bathed in desert light and shadow. Cuisines and coastlines that marry the smooth and soothing with the surprisingly sharp and dramatic. Come in search of trophy marlin, an authentic mole, the perfect beach, and find them all in Mexico. Along with an all-suite white-and-teak ship to frame each stunning sunset.
Words like moor, loch, and geyser were born in this land, because no existing vocabulary could adequately describe these extraordinary landscapes. These regions could just as easily have coined a term for ambrosial summer evenings at seaside cafés, Fabergé palaces of amber and gold, and storybook cities crisscrossed by canals and flower markets, all of which are here in abundance. But as your elegant yacht traces its way through enchanting fjords and forgotten archipelagos, you won’t need words. You are speechless.
Indulge yourself in leisurely, unscheduled days where time suspends in the magic of the sea. Sleep late. Dine early. Establish your own rhythm in sync with the waves and the arc of the sun and moon overhead. Watch the constellations drift and let your mind shake off all the cobwebs of shore. Feast on the impossible beauty of liquid sunsets, and let your soul dance with the dolphins in the spray off the bow.
Star Collector Voyages combine some of our most popular cruise itineraries for a more in-depth exploration of each region. Featuring longer voyages of 13+ days and few repeated ports, take advantage of your time here and unpack only once.

It’s a match made in heaven, this. You on your pristine white cruise ship, sails billowing, and these islands, so impossibly colorful, like a box of crayons gone mad. Wind Spirit is as at-home among Tahiti’s deserted motus and shallow lagoons as a tiare flower, and just as beautiful, furled or unfurled. Bliss knows no bounds. The sand massages your feet, warm water welcomes you like an old friend, ambition falls away as you watch the sun etch palm fronds on the beach. This is a place that is easy to love, difficult to leave, as so many before you have discovered. Come. Experience Bora Bora, Moorea, Fakarava, and other exotic Tahiti destinations you only dream about.

We've cruised to Greece before but never like this. Getting directly into smaller ports and in the middle of the local culture was incredible. We loved this intimate voyage and can't wait to sail again to another favorite port. Thanks Celebration Escapes for showing us a whole new way of cruising.

Destinations with these voyages are completely different from voyages on ocean liners and the mega ocean ships. We had an amazing trip and saw things we had never seen before (even though we had previously been to the destination). We loved the experiences and shore excursions Celebration Escapes created for us!

What an incredible Voyage! Celebration Escapes always plans our trips but this one for our 10th Anniversary was the best one yet! Pamala had so many extra special treats and surprises for us and everywhere we went, people new we were celebrating a special milestone. The intimate sailing experience made everything feel even more celebratory.
