Wind Star Cruises

This is the Caribbean for those with a taste for something a bit more exotic. Colonial influences are still going strong here, from the “Little England” island of Barbados to still-very-Dutch Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao. Days ashore promise unexpected discoveries – a donkey sanctuary on Bonaire, underground rivers and caves in Barbados, a chocolate factory on Grenada, an artist colony on Curaçao. Beaches seem to shrug off the challenge of more northerly islands as they establish a standard of beauty all their own, swept by steady gust-free trade winds that make learning to windsurf a breeze. And between each eventful island, there is time to savor your surroundings – both on shore and on the decks of your elegant yacht.

A Complimentary Windstar Private Event

Curacao: An Antillean Evening

Located in the historic section of Willemstad overlooking the harbor of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the beautifully restored Restaurant & Café Gouverneur de Rouville. The Old World charm, spectacular views, and the Antillean décor of this 18th century historic building will have you ready for an evening of delights. You will be entertained by the joyful rhythm of the Cuban music of local traditional performers. The restaurant's unique style of dining will give you the opportunity to create your own meal choices from various Walk-Around Stations including fish and skewers stations. Once again Windstar brings you closer to local culture and cuisine at this exceptional Private Event.

Please note: This Private Event has been scheduled in a way that will allow you to book and experience another shore excursion on the same day and you will not miss anything.

Day-to-Day Itinerary

Day 1 - Oranjestad, Aruba

Known for having some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, this Dutch port makes it easy to just … take it easy. Walk through town to choose your favorite carved wooden door, or spend the day like the Arubans do playing dominos at a beachside table.

Day 2 - Kralendijk, Bonaire

The ice cream colors of the stucco houses will draw your lens, as will the pink flamingos on the salt pans. But you’ll need a waterproof camera to complete the portrait since more than 400 fish species and 50 types of coral wait beneath the surface.

Day 3 - Willemstad, Curacao

Savor the pastel colors of the historic UNESCO site Old Town and the way the elaborate Dutch gables cut baroque curlicues from the sky. It’s the perfect appetizer for a day of watersports or an adventure below ground at the magical Hato Caves—filled with eerie limestone formations and ancient petroglyphs.

Day 4 - At Sea

Day 5 - St. George's, Grenada

Inhale the intoxicating aroma of the “Isle of Spice” as your eyes feast on what is widely claimed to be the most beautiful city in the Caribbean. Spend the day on 2-mile-long Grand Anse beach, and before you go, a taste of nutmeg ice cream is a must.

Day 6 - Man-O-War Bay, Charlotteville, Tobago

Listen for the sound of a conch announcing the return of the fishing boats. Bobbing next to us are flotillas of pelicans – hinting at the excellent snorkeling waiting for you here and in neighboring Pirate’s Bay.

Day 7 - Mayreau, St. Vincent Grenadines

With fewer than 300 inhabitants and miles of secluded beaches, it's easy to feel as if you're on your own private island. Saline Bay is a delightful anchorage that separates the Caribbean from the Atlantic - and a perfect place to play with some of the toys from the Watersports Platform.

Day 8 - Bridgetown, Barbados

Jolly old England comes to life in the city and its garrison, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Further afield, you’ll find historic sugar plantations and the fairyland magic of Harrison’s Cave.
