World's Best Cruise Lines 2010

Windstar Cruises

Overall score: 84.0
Ship size: Medium (500 to 1,500 passengers)

All aboard: Foodies and adventurers who crave a small-ship vibe

"The wonderful intimacy of a small ship" extends to suites and staterooms that look out on the ocean, as well as to bridge suites, which have leather couches and ample closet space. Windstar itineraries include stops in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, and Central America. Each schooner has motorized sails and an open-seating restaurant where "the waitstaff quickly learn your likes and dislikes." On Wind Surf, the largest of the fleet, is the restaurant Degrees, where the menu changes daily—hence French bistro one night, steak house the next. Excursions include helicopter tours of the Prunelli Gorges in Corsica and cave trekking in Slovenia.
