    Demographic Best Suited To:

    There is a generally younger crowd than the high-end 6-star brands, with many people trying a smaller ship operator for the first time. Once they do, they invariably can't go back to bigger ships.

    Kids will be happy if they enjoy fancy hotels and resort pools. Port-intensive itineraries such as the Med and Tahiti should keep most entertained. But definitely not ships suitable for kids to run around on.

     

    Closest Competition and How They Differ:

    Windstar is closest in product, quality, and pricing to Azamara. Both sit firmly between large mid-range cruise lines and the higher-priced 6-star brands. Azamara, at 700 pax ships, feels considerably larger, whereas Windstar always feels super boutique and exclusive. Like your own private super yacht.

     

    Many of the Windstar ships were built originally for Seabourn, which means you get a full suite instead of a smaller standard cabin. This affords the unique ability to experience what is very close to a high-end product at a much lower price.

     

    Ordinarily, we would never recommend older ships, however in the case of Windstar they have spent millions on complete interior redesign and refurbishment. They look and feel like brand-new ships.

     

    One signature left over from the Seabourn days is the aft watersport marine, one of the best features on any ship, especially if you are cruising warm climates like the Med or Tahiti.

    • A note about pricing.

      Our prices, like most online retailers, including VTG, are not live, only indicative.

       

      We do everything possible to ensure pricing is accurate when they are uploaded every Sunday.

       

      However, pricing in the cruise industry is no different from airfares. Prices can go up and down based on availability and can change, or indeed sell out, in the time it takes you to refresh your screen.

       

      When you request a quote we have to get into the reservation system of the cruise line and verify current-day pricing, which can be different from prices on our website. Pricing in the industry is all communicated electronically and this can lead to corrupted data and errors which we may not pick up until we ask for a specific quote.

       

      Until we place a firm hold on a cabin, prices can never be guaranteed. Failure to pay deposits by the set deadlines will void any quoted prices.
