Immersive Cruising

There's a big world out there that the Mega Ships miss

Cruising offers more than the impersonal Mega Ships, the incredible offerings from our immersive cruising partners allow you to see the world with 638 or fewer fellow explorers. Immersive cruising allows you to visit unspoiled destinations the mega-ships just can't experience.

Our small ship partners deliver an experience beyond expectation with attention to detail the Mega Ships can't match. Small Ship cruising is for travelers who want to see more, experience more; create memories that were unimaginable prior to stepping onboard one of our immersive partner vessells.


It’s a big world out there. See it best from a Windstar yacht delivering genuine service tailored to your preferences. Our yachts offer a relaxed ambiance serving only 148 to 342 guests. Travel off the beaten path and into small ports, hidden harbors, and secluded beaches, and immerse yourself exploring local cultures few tourists can reach.

This is private yacht-style cruising - 180 degrees from ordinary, for memories and friendships that last a lifetime.

Leave the crowds and clichés behind on private yacht-style cruises with just 148 - 342 guests.

Our personalized and immersive approach brings you closer to each destination and every port.

A friendly, unpretentious, and relaxed ambiance makes for lifelong connections with fellow travelers and crew.

Enjoy genuine and thoughtful service from a crew who aim to surprise and delight.

Taste the essence of the culture with fresh, locally sourced, and inspired dishes developed by James Beard Foundation chefs.
