Banish cliché, toss aside regimen, steer clear of stuffy. Windstar’s perfectly sized ships make it possible to flip the script on cruising.

A different set of rules applies in the Mediterranean. Time is measured in centuries, not minutes. Cities are shaped by sun and volcanoes. And the border between myth and reality fades like footprints on a Riviera beach. Surrounded by century old wonders of Italy and Spain, it’s easy to believe there is something magical at work here. Something that kisses grapes and transforms them into divine wine, turns marble ruins to gold in the last light of day, and gifts you with a beautiful white ship to see it all.
