Here is an overview of the exiting itineraries that Windstar Cruises is offering:

Wind Surf will take part in SAIL Amsterdam, the world’s biggest sailing parade as she spends two days in Amsterdam in August 2015. Wind Surf will sail mainly in Northern Europe throughout the season embarking in ports such as London, Lisbon, Barcelona, Rome, and Venice. Wind Surf will also offer a cruise during the Grand Prix in Monaco.

Wind Spirit will return May 1, 2015 to spend its second in Tahiti doing a seven day cruise visiting Moorea, Tahha, Raiatea, Huahine, and Bora Bora.

Like this year, Wind Star is continuing to cruise the Greek Isles and Turkish coasts on 7 night sailings visiting Athens, Mykonos, Santorini, Rhodes, Bodrum, Kusadasi and Istanbul.

Star Pride will be sailing 7 night Greek Isles and Turkish coast cruises and 9 night Aegean cruise itineraries.

The newly acquired Star Legend, is sailing out of Northern European ports doing Mediterranean itineraries such as Yachting the Riviera, Sicilian Splendors, Lands of the Midnight Sun cruises and more.

Last but not least, the Star Breeze is sailing from Rome, Athens, Istanbul and Venice visiting the Greek Isles, Amalfi Coast, Dalmatian Coast and the Riviera.

For those that have sailed Windstar in the past, there have been several changes.  The interior of each ship has not been redone.  The cabins were also enhanced.  

With fewer than 300 guests onboard, Windstar offers a private yacht-style cruise experience. Service is personalized, without pretense. Guests enjoy a more authentic, engaging destination experience, visiting hidden harbors and secluded coves larger ships can't reach. Windstar sails to over 50 countries, calling at over 150 ports throughout Europe, the Caribbean & the Americas, Tahiti, and Southeast Asia and Arabia.

There's something about the sea that makes the senses shift into overdrive.  Colors are more intense.  Flavors are amplified.  Each new aroma is more captivating than the last.  Which reminds you...is that the scent of freshly baked cinnamon rolls coming from the Verandah?  Lunch and dinner are a celebration of seasonal ingredients and regional specialties influenced by the places you visit.  Visit the Wind Surf's alternative restaurant or eat in the regular dining area.  It is all delicious.  Tempting menus are available on all ship, as well as alfresco dining at Candles. Wine lovers will enjoy the new Yachtsmen Discovery wine program.  You dine with whoever you wish - with no pretense, jacket or tie.

Time for bed? Time to retreat to your elegant stateroom where the romance of sailing merges with the very latest in modern amenities.  Let the room fill with music from your nearby iPod nano while you unpack.  So nice having all this space for your things.  You can settle in and watch a DVD on the flat-screen TV. Or slip between crisp cotton sheets and enjoy the timeless comfort of being gently rocked to sleep.

In the morning, thick, thirsty towels and sumptuous L'Occitane en Provence products await in the bathroom.  Should you go upstairs and dine on deck - or slip on your comfy robe and have breakfast in bed? As you gaze out on the endless expanse of sea from the comfort or your bed, it occurs to you.  Of all the islands you're about to explore, this may well be your favorite.

Although it's not easy to get lost on Windstar ships, it is well worth a try.  The cozy library is the perfect place to start.  Take a welcome sun break while looking through the DVD collection and new travel guides.  While you are there, you can email your friends about the amazing things they're missing back on dry land.

Like the best explorations, it pays to dig deep.  The Marina Deck below is full of hidden treasures, for the new aquatic toys on the Waters Sports Platform to the gleaming machines in the fitness room.  You can wander over to see what's new in the Signature Shop and chat with the captain up on the Bridge.  Or maybe you're content to stay right in your favorite deck chair and enjoy the simple pleasures of getting lost in your thoughts.

How do they do it? How is it possible for the Windstar Crew to tidy up your room in the short time you're out - have your favorite beverage on hard at precisely the right moment?  In the end, you'll realize it's much easier to simply relax and surrender to the attentive pampering.  On Windstar Cruises it is their pleasure to fulfill your every wish...even before you know what it is.

Maybe your every wish draws you to the hushed stillness of Windspa, where cares magically slip away.  Experience luxurious new treatments with O SPA London organics that smell as delicious as they feel.  A beath taking spa suite on Wind Surf lets you sail the seas in a haven of relaxation and rejuvenation for body, mind and spirit.
