Windstar operates four sailing yachts known for their ability to visit harbors and ports larger ships can’t reach. The ships carry fewer than 300 guests and call on ports throughout Europe, the Caribbean and the Americas with a complimentary water sports platform available when the ship is in anchor – subject to weather of course—featuring water skiing, kayaking, and windsurfing. The ambiance is relaxed (no jackets or ties needed) but upscale. While these yachts aren’t meant for kids, they’re ideal for parents who want a getaway without the kids or a special trip with grown kids.

At night the venue will transform to Candles Grill, a favorite Windstar romantic experience where guests can dine with table service under the stars.

Entertainment
By day, the focus is on exploration, but when the ship anchors offshore, guests can also swim, kayak, paddleboard, or water-ski from the water sports platform. There’s also a small spa, a gym, and a library with books and movies on DVD. On sea days, the Yacht Club — with its panoramic windows and coffee bar — is a quiet haven.
 
Come evening, the Star Bar serves sunset cocktails, while post-dinner entertainment is centered in the Compass Rose Bar, the small adjoining casino, and an entertaining vocal-piano duo. A five-member band plays the lounge nightly and backs up affable, baby-faced Captain Alan MacAry during his welcome and farewell cocktail parties. Since Star Pride has an open bridge policy, passengers get to know the captain here more than they do on other ships, and — since the ship is small and social — you can expect to get to know your fellow passengers, too.

Tipping
Windstar crew work very hard to make sure that every aspect of your cruise meets the highest standards. This includes those crew members who serve you directly, such as wait staff, beverage servers and the stewards who service your stateroom each day. There are also many others who support their efforts whom you many never meet, such as galley and laundry staff. To ensure that the efforts of all crew member are recognised and rewarded, a Hotel Service Charge of US$ 12.00 per passenger is automatically added to each guest's onboard account on a daily basis. If service exceeds or fails to meet your expectations, you are free to adjust this amount at the end of the cruise. In addition, a 15% Beverage Service Charge is automatically added to bar charges and dining room wine purchases. These charges are paid entirely to Windstar crew members and represent an important part of their compensation.
In terminals, airports, ports of call and on shore excursions, it is suggested that you extend gratuities consistent with customary local practices.
 
Fellow Passengers
Windstar passengers tend to be active, well-traveled, well-educated adults of all ages, hailing from North America, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand. They tend to enjoy the more laid-back atmosphere of a smaller ship, the idea of traveling under sail and the unique itineraries that Windstar provides.
 
Our recommendation
Aim for no-fuss upscale casual clothes. During the day, most men sport Polo shirts or dressy T-shirts (usually with a discreet brand logo), and shorts or khaki pants, depending on the port stop. Expect lots of Ralph Lauren, Brooks Brothers, and Lands' End for the guys. Top-Siders are popular shoes. For daytime, women wear shorts, capris, pants, silk and cotton tops, and sundresses.  What’s nice about Windstar is that although it’s a luxurious ship, you don’t have to pack a dinner jacket, tie or fancy dress because it’s a casual-elegant atmosphere. That means you can travel light and not have to check a bag, which is a real inconvenience. The only things not allowed are jeans and shorts in the dining room for dinner.
 
In the evening, women add simple jewelry and perhaps a fancier blouse or light sweater to slacks or a skirt. Some wear floor-length casual dresses. AmphorA, the main dining room, discourages shorts, jeans, tank tops, and sneakers. Do not pack suits, ties, tuxedos, or evening gowns.
 
These obviously aren’t new ships. Star Pride was built in 1988 so naturally it does show signs of age in several places. One of the biggest of these is the pool, which has to be the most uninviting pool I’ve ever seen. But once you set sail on Windstar, you quickly realize you don’t go on their ships (or other similar small ships) for things like the pool. These aren’t those floating megaships that have everything a top Las Vegas hotel would have. Instead, you go on a ship like this for the luxurious cabins, service, food and most importantly, the stopover destinations, as they have the ability to stop in smaller ports that the large ships can’t.
 
Like all Windstar ships, Star Pride has an Open Bridge allowing guests to come into the Bridge when the yacht is at sea. Guests can talk with the Captain and officers on watch, view the navigational chart, and enjoy some of the best views on the yacht without any advance warning. You just can’t go into the bridge when they’re making maneuvers.
