In late 1986, the first commercial sailing vessel built in 60 years slipped out of a French dry-dock in Le Havre. Although the towering sails echoed a bygone era of explorers, the msy Wind Star, with its sleek lines and computerized controls, was revolutionary in concept and design.

Windstar’s ships are officially motored-sail- yachts (msy), but the designation belies the vessels unique rigging. Unfurling in two minutes at the push of a button, billowing white sails reach to the sky. All functions are operated from the bridge by computer microchips and navigational devices. The unusual “open-bridge” operation allows guests to drop by and acquaint themselves with the veteran captains and officers who demonstrate the ship’s intriguing capabilities to modern day explorers. A new era in luxury cruising was now being pioneered by Windstar Cruises.

Note: Each individual guest must submit the required information and travel with a passport that is valid for six months beyond the end of your cruise.

What’s it all about…

Over the past 15 years, cruising has been revolutionized – and you are responsible for the changes!  Cruisers spoke, and the cruise lines listened. You were looking for flexibility & choice, a quality experience, and most importantly, an excellent value. The cruise lines have made countless changes –there are dining choices, both times and venues, a variety of new departure ports, new & exciting onboard activities, such as climbing walls, surfing, ice skating, bowling, & cooking demonstrations and new stateroom amenities to enhance comfort. Spas have been expanded and include the latest treatments, children's programs have been expanded, cruises are much more family friendly that ever before, and state-of-the-art facilities were added for gyms, sports, communication, entertainment, and fun. In today’s world, more than ever, cruising offers the best possible value and experience for your vacation dollar.  And interline rates? They are confirmed space!


Cruise Shopping Tips

♦  The higher the deck and the more center ship, the higher the price and accommodation are generally the same in each meta-category.

♦  Flexibility = Savings. Just want to get away? Look for the destination with the best interline savings based on your time off.

♦  Look for cruise departures offering a ROS Inside OR Outside where the inside and outside rates are exactly the same.

♦  In the old days of cruising, you would be given tip envelopes the last day of the cruise. Now, tips are automatically added to your stateroom account, so you don’t have to scramble for the correct amount of cash on the last day!

♦  Protect your vacation investment with insurance. Cruises do not offer bump protection.


Proof of Eligibility

It’s imperative for you to provide proof of eligibility, either in the form of a copy of your airline ID or a letter from a supervisor/pass bureau on airline letterhead stationary proving interline eligibility. If proof of eligibility is not received in a timely manner (varies by cruise line) the interline rate is in danger of reverting to a retail rate, costing you hundreds of dollars.
