With cosy public and private spaces and alfresco dining surrounded by the ocean on the top deck Veranda Café you’ll easily relax and soon enough be exploring the hidden destinations only a ship of this size can discover. A unique feature is the open-air sports platform with sailboards, snorkelling gear, water skis, sailboats and kayaks, a great addition to the swimming pool, casino and evening entertainment.

Pool Bar

Facing one of the ship’s two compact pools, this open-air bar is buzzing and vibrant during daytime hours so you’re sure to make friends quickly.

Pool

With no children around and flanked by a poolside bar, this is the perfect place to enjoy a refreshing swim while each day’s changing scenery offers you a new stunning backdrop.

AmphorA Restaurant

The dining room manager awaits to seat you from 19.00 at AmphorA restaurant but where is up to you as there are no pre-assigned tables. The exquisite cuisine utilises fresh native foods and tropical accents in light and savoury entrees coupled with a selection of vintage wines.

Candles

Welcome to Windstar Cruises signature outdoor restaurant offering delectable cuisine and inspired wine pairings in truly memorable surroundings.

The Library

The Library is a perfect place to relax with a good book but it also offers a four-person card table with an imprinted chessboard and glass-door bookshelves with hundreds of DVDs, as well as music CDs to borrow for free. There are, of course, books -- fiction, nonfiction and travel guides -- and games, such as Scrabble. There are two computers for use by guests who didn't bring their own laptops or tablets.

Veranda

Freshly brewed Colombian coffee and buttery croissants await you from 07.30 in Veranda where the alfresco, full service or buffet style breakfast is available up until 09.30. Alternatively, enjoy a continental breakfast in the privacy of your stateroom or suite. Veranda also offers a seemingly endless lunch buffet and a lunch menu available between noon and 14.30.

The Lounge

Filled with sofas, chairs and cocktail tables, this room features a skylight, a dance space in the centre, a cosy area where musicians perform and large picture windows, dressed with dark-wood plantation shutters on three sides. Occasional movies are shown here on the state-of-the-art video and sound equipment. Wind Star books a single musician or a musician-and-singer duo to perform in the Lounge every evening, covering well-known songs from a range of entertainers, such as Frank Sinatra, James Taylor, Carol King, Jason Mraz and Lady Gaga. Local talent is also invited on-board one evening when the vessel stays a bit later in a port.

Signature Shop

Duty-free shop with fine and costume jewellery, watches, sunglasses, sundresses, shirts, trousers, Tilley hats, a Wind Star yacht model (which can be shipped to your home) and Windstar Cruise logo-wear, as well as sunscreens, toothbrushes and grooming sundries. Due to customs regulations, the gift shop is never open when a ship is in port.

Live Musical Performances

Both the Lounge and Compass Rose Bar offer you the chance to enjoy live musical performances on select evenings of your cruise. These acts often cover well-known songs from a range of entertainers, such as Frank Sinatra, James Taylor, Carol King, Jason Mraz and Lady Gaga. Local talent is also invited on-board one evening during longer port stays.

Casino

This intimate casino offers games of chance and slot machines from 17.30 each evening and two tables, blackjack and three-card poker from 21.00.

Water Sports Platform

Access snorkel gear, kayaks, windsurfing equipment and more from these stern-mounted “marinas”. The only charge is for diving; PADI-certified instructors offer a two-hour course for noncertified divers to try scuba and are also available to lead experienced certified divers on underwater expeditions. The dive teams take care of everything, even prepping and washing down the gear.

Fitness Centre

Enjoy unlimited use of state-of-the-art workout equipment including exercise machines and treadmills. There are free weights and instructor-led fitness classes. There is an extra charge for Pilates and yoga classes while joggers get a full-circuit track on the Bridge Deck of Wind Surf.

WindSpa

Enjoy a pampered onboard experience in this relaxing paradise where all your aches and worries can be massaged away. Prepare for an elegant evening with a manicure and new hairstyle or simply enjoy the body wraps and facial treatments on offer.
