We all know the importance of an incentive trip, and we also know how popular and amazing a cruise incentive trip could be. Now I would like you to think of a more memorable and unforgettable cruise experience. I would like to introduce you to d different and intimate way of cruising:
Welcome to the casually elegant small ship world of Windstar Cruises.
Leave the crowds behind on a luxury cruise ship carrying fewer than 310 privileged guests. No lines. No waiting. Just a warm and intimate ambiance you won’t find on larger cruise ships.
Sail right into the heart of Old World villages, hidden coves, and harbors off the beaten path – places only Windstar’s small cruise ships are welcomed. Every itinerary is expertly crafted and artfully planned, visiting both boutique ports and bucket-list capitals. Share intimate moments away from the crowds. Immerse yourself in local culture and cuisine, and get behind-the-scenes experiences.
And of course, part of the Windstar magic is their incredible personal service. Enjoy undivided attention from a crew who delights in remembering your name and preferences. Both gracious hosts and ambassadors, they delight in surprising you in discrete ways – satisfying your sweet tooth with an extra chocolate on your pillow or sharing the location of a favorite seaside café. Welcome to Windstar Cruises – an experience that is truly 180 degrees from ordinary.
