Windstar Cruises

Discover the hidden coastlines and the overlooked charms of lesser-known small ports during this extraordinary 11-day crossing of Europe’s Atlantic shores. Sip Devonshire Cream tea and nibble on decadent cakes as you discover Dartmouth’s 400-year-old connection to Mayflower pilgrims. Explore the century-old halls inside the Britannia Royal Naval College, the UK’s naval academy for the British Royal Navy officers and former school of several princes in the royal family. Attend a French cuisine cooking class or stroll among the vineyard rows in Médoc or St. Émilion during a delicious stop that blends storied red wines with briny French cheeses near the outskirts of Bordeaux. Follow the painted or sculpted scallop shells leading to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, the ultimate destination of pilgrims for more than 1,000 years. Linger over dark, rich, and fiery red port wines as you float past the tall, tiled-roof port houses lining Porto’s waterfront on the Douro River. Run your fingers along the sculpted stone knots commemorating Portugal’s bold maritime history at Belém Tower on the banks of Lisbon’s Tagus River. It’s a perfect vista for watching sunsets on the Atlantic while sharing dreams and plans for your next European adventure.
