To help prevent the spread of illness onboard their ships, Windstar have introduced new procedures when it comes to health and safety. Health questionnaires and temperature screenings before boarding will ensure that guests are well enough to cruise, while staggered arrivals and departures will help maintain social distancing.
Onboard the yachts, cleaning procedures have been enhanced including tender boats, sports deck, equipment and buses once on shore. In addition, hand sanitiser stations have been increased across the ship. Restaurants have also been adapted with longer dining times to limit the number of guests inside at one time.
In addition, crew will have to undergo health screenings before boarding and temperature checks twice each day. They will also be given extra training on how to prevent Covid-19, and will wear masks and gloves when necessary. In any cases of guest illness, the medical centre is well equipped, with extra staff being introduced.
Dining aboard a Windstar cruise is a superb experience with an informal elegance thanks to the variety of restaurants,including open seating dining venues meaning you can eat whenever you want. Focusing on local and sustainable produce, guests can enjoy the taste of each destination they visit at every mealtime. What's more, thanks to the all-inclusive nature of your cruise, you won't have to worry about the bill at the end of each meal.
For an extra-special dining experience, enjoy the amazing onboard barbecue, where the crew serves up an incredible array of dishes made from local ingredients, followed by an evening of entertainment under the starry sky.
After dinner, there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy some entertainment thanks to Windstar Cruises. Choose to dance to some live music in the lounge thanks to the onboard band or head to the Bridge where the captain is more than happy to share the chars, routes and incredible views with you.
