The Essence of Small Ship Sailing

Star is a sleek, 4-masted sailing yacht accommodating 148 guests. With four decks Wind 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 for Candles which features steaks and skewers.

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

Client Love!

We've cruised for many years but cruising with Celebration Escapes & Windstar Cruises  was a totally different experience. Everything was Luxury all the way but very casual and understated. It's great for cruising enthusiasts to have several different cruising options now. 

~ Marcel & Joyce

We loved how Celebration Escapes planned experiences in the ports designed just for us. Our group felt like royalty on this journey and we all loved every minute of it.

~ Bruce & Audrey

Thank you Celebration Escapes for making this journey a milestone memory. We wanted to sail on an extraordinary ship to a destination we wanted to experience for a long time. It was a Dream we had...for our 15 year Anniversary Pamala delivered that Dream and really did transform it into one of our most beautiful memories.
