Dining in the elegant AmphorA Restaurant or Wind Surf's other dining venues is an epicurean delight. Over 200 crewmembers attend to the needs of just 310 guests, assuring attentive service.

While other cruise lines have bingo and trivia nights, Windstar's Wind Surf has a Watersports Platform that opens directly from the back of the ship and includes complimentary kayaks, paddleboards, water trampolines, and water skis. Spend time in the Lounge regaling your fellow guests about the day's adventures ashore, or simply relax in the Library with an intriguing book. Take some "you" time in the tranquil WindSpa . . . enjoy a dip in the pool . . . work off that decadent dessert in the Fitness Center . . . and, of course, you are always welcome to visit the Bridge to examine navigation charts with the Captain... its all there for you aboard Windstar's flagship sailing yacht, Wind Surf.

      Welcome Aboard

      On any given day, Windstar's 5-masted, 310-guest flagship Wind Surf – the world's largest sailing yacht – draws admiring glances as she glides majestically into port with her tall sails billowing. And her beauty is far more than skin deep. Starting with all new finishes and furnishings in suites and staterooms, the newly renovated Wind Surf now brings you some of the most beautiful public spaces at sea. During your cruise, you’ll find the perfect setting for ‘making an entrance’ in the beautiful new reception area… but when you return to your stateroom or suite aboard Wind Surf, the luxury gets personal. Windstar’s signature bowls of flowers and fresh fruit will be waiting for you in spacious 188-square-foot staterooms or suites ranging from 376 to 495 square feet… along with rich tufted headboards, soft seascape colors, beautiful new upholstery, and fine count Egyptian cotton linens… enveloping you in an oasis of relaxing indulgence. Wrap up in your waffle-weave robe, have a snack from the fresh fruit bowl, or simply stretch out and smell the flowers. Everything about Wind Surf speaks of welcome. Come aboard and see it for yourself.

      Wind Surf offers a refined small ship cruising experience, with a maximum capacity of just 310 passengers.  Aboard Wind Surf, the Tauck group may share the ship with non-Tauck guests. On all departures, the Tauck group will be accompanied by one Tauck Director for approximately every 40 Tauck guests. Your cruise will be highlighted by exclusive, private Tauck shore excursions, while your time aboard Wind Surf will provide opportunities for you to interact with the ship's other non-Tauck guests.
