Part of the Windstar fleet, select Wind Surf itineraries are available through Tauck. Wind Surf, the newest and largest of the three vessels in the Windstar Fleet, is a sleek, five-masted sailing yacht. Wind Surf can accommodate almost double the amount of passengers as it's sister ships, but still keeps the casual and intimate atmosphere avid cruisers expect from Windstar Cruises. Despite the vessel's size, Wind Surf is still quite intimate in size (relative to the rest of the cruising world) and offers itineraries with more exotic ports that larger ships cannot reach, as well as the ability to sail nearby breathtaking coastlines.

Wind Surf offers several dining venues. The Restaurant is the ship's main dining venue, featuring course-by-course, gourmet meals in the evening. The Verandah provides casual buffet or full-service breakfast and lunches. The newest venue aboard Wind Surf is Degrees. This restaurant is by reservation only, and features an alternative Mediterranean menu reflecting the fresh and seasonal preparations of international cooking. Two alternate dining eateries are Candles, serving steaks and skewers, and Le Marché, serving delicious seafood, both located on open decks for dining under the stars. Lastly, for a more private dining, guests can order breakfast, lunch or diner from an extensive room service menu to the their suite or stateroom.

Out of the three ships in the Windstar fleet, and most ships of this class, Wind Surf's spa and fitness facilities are far more classy, elaborate, and packed with the most up-to-date equipment and techniques.¬†Other amenities on the vessel include a salon, casino and lounge, water-sports platform, two pools and two hot tubs. The Yacht Club is the ship’s own library, lounge, cafe/sandwich bar, internet station in one. This venue is decorated with groups of comfy couches and chairs; perfect for enjoying a good book, browsing the internet, or enjoying conversations and quality time with friends.
