WIND STAR - WIND SURF: 7-Night "Mediterranean Rivieras" Rome to Nice
Untitled Document
"Luxury without pretense" - those three words - better than any others we could find - best convey the Wind Surf cruise experience. Choose any Windstar cruise and you've made a distinct departure from the mainstream. Choose the Wind Surf and you've chosen the newest, largest and most amenity-filled ship within their three-vessel fleet.

Technology triumphs on this ship of sails, offering passengers a unique cruise experience. From all outward appearances, Wind Surf represents a return to a time of tall masts, billowing sails, sleek lines, and tales of adventure and exploration. But beneath those appearances there lies another tale - a tale of computer microchips and intricate navigational devices.

Important enhancements and stateroom amenities for the Wind Surf (completion, summer of 2006) include the following:
  • Enhanced Dining Experience. The renowned chef Joachim Splichal of Los Angeles' Patina Group has introduced enhanced menus in the ship's main Restaurant and its tables are graced with Riedel stemware and Rosenthal china. The alternative restaurant, The Bistro, offers a new menu featuring a rotation of Italian, French and steakhouse specialties; Schott Zwiesel stemware and Rosenthal china grace the tables within this newly-redecorated venue. Evening room service offers the luxury of course-by-course dining!
  • Accommodation Amenities. All staterooms include premium, pillow-top mattresses, luxurious bed linens and duvets, ultra-fluffy Egyptian-cotton towels, luxurious bathrobes, and upscale French bathroom toiletries. Flat screen TVs and DVD/CD players and Bose SoundDocks.
  • Intimate Cruise Experience. The ship is small, offering you a real chance to get to know your fellow passengers and crew. The smaller size also lets you nudge into ports too small for the big, mass-market liners. "Hammocks-for-two" located on the ship's flying bridges provide intimate sanctuaries of relaxation. The ship's WindSpa offers new, stress-reducing body and face treatments including a Chakra Balancing Capsule!
  • Casual Style. Unchanged for Windstar is their unique blending of elegance and sophistication with absolute relaxation and casual, easy-going fun. Bring your sense of adventure and exploration aboard but leave the tuxes, ties and evening gowns at home!
  • New Itineraries! Later departure times and more shipboard overnights in port have been introduced. And with a draft of less than 17 feet, Wind Surf is able to access smaller harbors, bays and ports. You'll travel the unspoiled, less-trampled routes; see what other cruise passengers miss; and embark from smaller, less-congested seaports.
