Out of the Way, the Windstar Way

Navigating to serene and secluded ports while Windstar redefines cruising with an intimate touch.

With a fleet of uniquely small ships, Windstar Cruises offers a distinctive advantage: the ability to dock in charming, lesser-known ports that larger vessels simply cannot access. This allows our discerning travelers to immerse themselves in the heart of their chosen destinations, enjoying a more personal and authentic experience while avoiding the crowds of mainstream ports. 


Embark on a journey that redefines luxury and exploration, where the path less traveled leads to unforgettable moments.


Here is a small sample of the extraordinary ports Windstar visits:
Papeete and Bora Bora

Windstar has been the Islands of French Polynesia for 35 years, so no one knows the islands quite like they do. Immerse yourself in the vibrant Polynesian culture of Papeete's bustling markets and serene beaches, before indulging in the ultimate luxury of Bora Bora's overwater bungalows and crystal-clear lagoons.  Plus, Windstar’s Watersports Platform on the yacht’s stern allows you to jump right into the beautiful lagoons.
