Windstar Cruises Dining

With a cruise line as luxurious and detail-oriented as Windstar Cruises, you can expect only the best dining experience and cuisine – and Windstar delivers. The food will please, the service will astound and the venues will amaze. From the romantic outdoor dining of Candles Grill to the rich desserts of Stella Bistro, Windstar’s dining experience is elegant and top-notch. There is no set dining schedule, so you can eat where you want, when you want. Plus, all of the onboard dining venues are included in your fare. And while Windstar may be luxurious, the atmosphere is always elegant-casual so you can forget about the tuxedo and sports coat, and instead enjoy comfortable yacht attire.
