“I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.”
Excerpt from Sea Fever by James Masefield

Imagine a tall ship, casually elegant, warm and welcoming with every amenity to satisfy your lust for something new and different. Wind star offers all of this with the intimacy missing on a larger ship. Meet new friends as you dine on succulent specialties or a custom cocktail as you explore ports too small for a large cruise ship. Discover hidden coves, harbors and the thrill that drove men to cross the ocean under the beauty of billowing sails and a million stars.

Every itinerary has been thoughtfully created to allow you to do more than visit the usual crowded tourists spots and focus on boutique ports as well as dazzling capitals.  An international crew will gladly share locations of the best seaside cafe or bring you that extra sweet treat before bed.
