ecluded lagoons and intimate harbors are made even more spectacular when seen from the decks of the world’s #1-rated Small Ship Cruise Line. The 2014 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Award demonstrates something Windstar guests have known all along — that nothing brings your dreams to life like Windstar. • Fewer than 300 guests. Large enough to pamper you in luxury, fine dining, and spacious living. Yet small enough to visit tiny islands and remote villages others can’t reach. • Legendary service. The best on the seas.

ith fewer than 300 companions on board guests soon become friends, not just faces. You accept the open invitation to drop by the Bridge and chat with the Captain — just as you would on your own private yacht. And when you find the perfect cove on a perfect day, you abandon other plans and dive off the Watersports Platform into water so clear you can see the coral below. Your lovely yacht takes you right to your destination. Small groups quickly dissipate on shore, circumventing the label of “tourist.” And exhausting all-day excursions to the likes of Jost Van Dyke, Isla de Coiba, and Isla Culebra are passé.

Past and present merge and mingle on this Private Event created especially for St. Lucia. Wander the historic fort, now silent except for the calls of mockingbirds and doves. Watch, mesmerized, as the history of St. Lucia unfolds in a glorious amalgam of music, dance, and light. Browse the open-air food stalls as steel drums play and sample island specialties from soup to rum. It’s more than a taste of local culture — it’s an eminently satisfying buffet.

It’s right out of a dream — an evening of Polynesian magic on a secluded motu all your own. Inhale the heady scent of your flower lei and tender suckling pig. Feast on tropical delights and meat so tender it almost melts in your mouth. Then as the stars begin to shine, gaze on as dancers dazzle you with their mastery of fire, twirling and throwing flames so fierce you feel the heat from 10 feet away.

As the sunset paints the pastel buildings of Willemstad’s Old Town you watch ships go by, listen to talented local musicians, and admire the Antillean décor of an acclaimed restaurant located in a beautifully restored 18th century building. Dutch, Creole, Venezuelan and Indonesian flavors mingle in the music and the delicious cuisine served on a covered verandah. The only thing that could make this evening more perfect would be an easy return to your elegant yacht. Oh look, it’s right there.

t’s a match made in heaven, this. You on your pristine white ship, sails billowing, and these islands, so impossibly colorful, like a box of crayons gone mad. Wind Spirit is as at-home among Tahiti’s deserted motus and shallow lagoons as a tiare flower, and just as beautiful, furled or unfurled. Bliss knows no bounds.

The sand massages your feet, warm water welcomes you like an old friend, ambition falls away as you watch the sun etch palm fronds on the beach. This is a place that is easy to love, difficult to leave, as so many before you have discovered. Come. Keep the promise you made to yourself so long ago.

Unlike the other 420 atolls on the planet, the inner lagoon at Fakarava is completely closed, creating a unique ecosystem that’s still revealing its mysteries. There are no banks or ATMs. No casinos or duty free shops. Just paradise, the Wind Spirit, and you. • Experience the magic with Windstar’s Dive and Snorkeling Options (see page 33).

YOUR YACHT IS WAITING

A

day on board your Windstar yacht is a day of choices, all of them good. Perhaps you’ll begin with a relaxing massage in WindSpa. Or maybe an invigorating workout in the state-ofthe-art Fitness Center. Even better, why not both? After an enjoyable lunch in Veranda, make a splash from the Watersports Platform off the yacht’s stern. Everything you can think of for fun in the water is there — swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, paddleboarding, even water skiing. And it’s all complimentary, of course. Sun yourself on deck, take a dip in the whirlpool, then

catch up on email or grab a DVD for your stateroom or suite in the Library. After dinner, try your luck in the Casino and dance to live music in the Lounge. This is your yacht, so of course you’re welcome on the Bridge, where the Captain and officers are delighted to share charts, routes, and vistas with you. As you prepare for another amazing Windstar day, enjoy a nightcap anywhere you like — on deck, in the Lounge, or why not let us bring it to your suite or stateroom? Your day ends just as it began, blissfully.
