Windstar Cruises Service & Awards

The goal of Windstar Cruises’ staff is to make your cruise experience outstanding and unforgettable. This starts with an impressive crew to guest ratio (1:2 in many cases) and a wide range of onboard services. Windstar’s intimate ships only hold a limited number of guests, so there’s never crowding and crewmembers are able to give each guest the attention they deserve.

Windstar’s dedication to service also translates to extra special onboard perks, such as packages with unlimited beverages, cocktails, wine and refreshments (including several top shelf options). Windstar also offers a convenient 24-hour personal laundry service for all guests. This allows you to pack lighter and receive freshly pressed and laundered garments each day.
