 Wind Star Cruise Line

Windstar Cruises' first "sail cruiser", the Wind Star, was launched in 1986 after more than three years of planning and construction. Not a classic tall ship but a modern cruise liner with sails, the Wind Star and her two sister vessels feature computer-operated sails and a smart-casual environment. In 2011 Windstar was purchased by Anschutz Corporation and will be operated by TAC Cruises LLC, a unit of Anschutz.

    Wind Surf is a beautiful ship, but not for the physically challenged. It is 39 steps straight up from the pier to the main deck - doesn't sound like much, but trust me, it's tough even if you're... read more

    First of all, this was the most elaxing cruise we have ever taken, even though we "hit" a port a day. The ship is really an oversized sailing yacht and dress is informal but not cut-off... read more
