Teak decks warm the soles of your bare feet. A staff member, gracious yet unobtrusive, seems to magically appear with an ice-cold rum punch or an extra fluffy pillow just as you've thought of it. Your dress is casually elegant - a style unique to Windstar where no jackets or ties are required. A perfectly prepared salmon fillet is whisked onto the linen cloth before you, followed by a heavenly crème brulee'. You toast your mutual exquisite taste in choosing this cruise, and each other.
