Windsurf Cruise Ship

The Ultimate Grand Prix Adventure aboard Windstar Cruises' Wind Surf Yacht

This luxury sail-cruiser is one of the largest and a new unique way to watch the Monaco Grand Prix by relaxing in the harbour as the F1 cars roar along the tarmac. Wind Surf recently underwent a major refurbishment.

This ship is one of a pair and is part-cruise ship and part-yacht. The ship may look like it is from a by gone era, but that is where the similarity ends as the sails themselves are all electronically controlled form the bridge`s computer.  You won’t be seeing it in the America`s Cup anytime soon or any shouts from the crow’s nest “there she blows”.

The size of the ship is a site to behold with accommodation for over 300 guests in 154 staterooms, which comprise of 123 deluxe ocean-view staterooms and the crème de la crème of 31 ocean-view suites.  On-board there are just over 200 staff including 10 massage therapists, technicians and instructors just to make sure the guests are as pampered as possible. Additional services for the guests to help them relax are traditional massage, aromatherapy, comprehensive hydro and synergistic therapy is available too, all provided just in case the Grand Prix is too tense to watch and you need to take a break and relax in style.

Cabin Amenities

All the cabins are modern and tastefully decorated with private bathrooms that have hand-held and fixed showers for full body wash or just your hair. Other facilities include: Flat-screen TV, DVD, mini-bar/refrigerator, room service available all day and night and for your security a personal safe. The rooms have plenty of storage so need to worry if your entire luggage will fit in.

Public Areas

The public facilities have everything to keep you amused when the racing is not on.  These include a Casino, Compass Rosa Bar, Pool Bar, spacious lounge, salon, computers with Wi-Fi access (the old business centre), large flat-screen TV for group viewings. A library of books, CDs and DVDs are freely available for those quiet private moments.  A well-equipped large fitness spa facility is for all guests to use to catch up on your fitness regime or work of the calories from the night before, also to staying on the sports theme a Water Sports Platform is available.  The gym has range of fitness equipment from treadmills, indoor bikes to free weights.

Dining: A choice of high quality restaurants

1.    The Veranda, a top-deck restaurant (breakfast and lunch)
2.    AmphorA, ship's main dining venue
3.    Stella Bistro, smaller intimate restaurant
4.    Gourmet sandwich bar (Yacht Club)
5.    Candles, alfresco steakhouse-style restaurant

The Veranda is where breakfast and lunch is served and when the weather is good the terrace can be opened up for an alfresco dining experience. Recently a Sandwich Bar was added to the Yacht Club Lounge where you can dine in or take-away some food for example a picnic ashore. From 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. the main evening dining happens in the AmphorA.

Other Services for your Convenience

There is a reception to answer all your questions and give local advice, also a Signature Shop, Infirmary with full-time physician and nurse and laundry service. Water sports are available including water-skiing, windsurfing, kayaking, sail boating, "banana" boating, snorkeling and snorkel gear. If you are feeling that little bit more adventurous you can hire Scuba Diving equipment for a fee, but we think your mind will be more on the racing than anything else.
