World Class Service:
The moment you board you’ll feel it: an ever-attentive crew at your service, providing you with what you want and need, when you want and need it. Delighting in your smile. Taking pure pleasure in your contentment. The Windstar staff-to-guest ratio is 1:1.5, and it shows. It’s why Windstar was named for Best Service last year in the Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Awards.
Zodiacs & Wet Landings – What to Expect:
During this cruise, the Wind Star will be anchored in new and different small bays on most days, and these remote ports do not have docks. Windstar utilizes Zodiacs, rugged inflatable boats designed to take guests safely to shore. A wet landing consists of boarding a Zodiac from a floating dock on the yacht and riding it from the ship to the shore. Once you reach the beach, you will disembark directly in the water. This is an active and mobile adventure, however, there is always plenty of assistance from the ship crew! You will also always have the option to stay aboard the ship and enjoy the luxurious onboard amenities.
