One of our preferred cruise line partners is Windstar, offering casually elegant small ship cruising - carrying fewer than 300 guests - creating a warm and intimate ambiance you won't find on larger cruise ships...."An experience that is truly 180 degrees from ordinary"
When you book directly with North South Travel you can benefit from complimentary shipboard credits on most sailings or access to special pricing which you can’t get elsewhere! Also, because this line is part of the Virtuoso Voyages program on select sailings you can also enjoy an exclusive onboard cocktail party and then a choice of a unique shore excursion, a private car and driver in port, or a custom credit we can use towards a luxury hotel stay pre or post cruise, or a private tour guide in one of the points!
Sail right into the heart of Old World villages, hidden coves, and harbors off the beaten path – places only Windstar’s small cruise ships are welcomed. Every itinerary is expertly crafted and artfully planned, visiting both boutique ports and bucket-list capitals. Share intimate moments away from the crowds. Immerse yourself in local culture and cuisine, and get behind-the-scenes experiences.
And of course, part of the Windstar magic is incredible personal service. Enjoy undivided attention from a crew who delights in remembering your name and preferences. Both gracious hosts and ambassadors, they delight in surprising you in discrete ways – satisfying your sweet tooth with an extra chocolate on your pillow or sharing the location of a favorite seaside café.
Private Yacht Experience
Imagine spending a week on a friend’s private luxury yacht. Unlike the crowded cruise ships left in your wake, you are one of fewer than 300 guests on board. Your yacht is anchored in hidden harbors, docked in tiny ports, and in the heart of charming cities. While others wait for tenders in tedious lines, you swim and kayak off your own Watersports Platform. You step ashore into the center of amazing city scenes to explore the secret charms of places larger ships simply cannot reach. Each meal is a treat for your senses, prepared by a premier chef and served in intimate, impeccable style along with a superb collection of fine wines.This is your private space — from the indulgent luxury of your own stateroom or suite to your favorite spot on deck.
Closer to the World
See more, linger longer, have the kind of adventure that defines the difference between tourism and true travel. Only on Windstar’s small ships can you rub shoulders with the glitterati in Monte Carlo, dive among coral cliffs in Tahiti, nestle into picturesque ports in Capri, and trace your way through Iceland’s enchanting fjords. You’ll mingle with yachtsmen in their favorite spots like Hvar and Jost Van Dyke. You’ll dine with the gods in ancient Ephesus, make a wish as the moon bathes in the canals of Venice, and thrill to the exquisite precision of Andalusian horses. Each Windstar voyage connects you to the world, the place, the people that broaden your vision and open your heart.
Luxury As You Like It
We believe the ultimate luxury is an experience designed specifically to your personal tastes, just like your own private yacht. That’s why Windstar gives you the freedom to make your own choices, to pick your own pleasures. All the luxuries you expect are built in — and you can add as many more as you like, making your cruise exactly as inclusive as you want it to be. In one simple call our Vacation Planner can help you or your travel professional make your Windstar vacation completely inclusive — or create a personal, custom-made experience. Would you like alcoholic beverages included — our pleasure. A perfect collection of shore excursions picked precisely to your interests — of course. Can we make all your air, hotel, and group transportation arrangements — naturally. We’ll even take care of your laundry.
