Your Itinerary
Day 1: Moorea Moorea (French Polynesia)(Moorea)

Arguably the most dramatically beautiful of the French Polynesian islands, Moorea lies only a few miles northwest of Tahiti (10 minutes by air or under an hour by ferry from Papeete). This little tropical island gem is characterised by spectacular bays, white sandy beaches, and towering craggy volcanic peaks that form a jagged central spine, reflected in the surrounding crystal-surfaced lagoons.

About 16,000 people live happily on Moorea, but there are no towns, or even villages, as such. Settlements offering clusters of shops and stalls line the 40-mile long (64km) paved road that encircles the island, giving access to a handful of sightseeing opportunities and lovely beaches. The best beaches are between the Moorea Village Hotel and the Hotel Beachcomber, and near the Sofitel Ia Ora near the airport.

All sorts of water activities and excursions are offered on the island, as well as several land-based activities like hikes and mountain safaris. A fun way to explore the island is to rent a scooter or bicycle, or join the locals on the 'trucks' that form the island's public transport system, such as it is.

Must-see sights include the panoramic view of the Cook and Opunohu bays from the Roto Nui (Belvedere) viewpoint, the Paopao open-air market, and a distillery where exotic liqueurs are produced from the local pineapple, vanilla, mango, and coconut crops.

Moorea boasts some fancy luxury resorts for those wanting to indulge but there are also more reasonably priced options. Despite the island's great popularity with travellers, Moorea retains an authentic, non-touristy atmosphere and provides a good retreat from bustling Tahiti.

Day 4: Bora Bora Bora-Bora (French Polynesia)(Bora Bora)

Satellite pictures of the tiny island of Bora Bora, from hundreds of miles above the earth, show it to be almost glowing, its dark green centre surrounded by a coral necklace and an iridescent aquamarine lagoon.

Little wonder that this is the dream destination for celebrities, honeymooners, and lovers who live in splendour in the island's luxurious spas and resorts, while enjoying privacy and anonymity on its magical secluded beaches.

Visitors to Bora Bora touch down on an airstrip (built by US troops during World War II) situated on a (islet) in the middle of the beautiful crystal-clear lagoon, and are ferried to the main island. The lagoon forms the centre of activities for holidaymakers, being the stage for numerous adventures, from shark-feeding excursions and swimming with giant turtles to scuba diving, snorkelling, jet-skiing, glass-bottom boat cruises, descending into the 'lagoonarium', kite-sailing, picnicking on a and more.

Bora Bora also offers plenty of cultural and historical attractions, like taking a day trip to a (ancient temple), exploring the World War II-era cannon and relics, browsing the art and craft galleries, watching a Tahitian dance ceremony, and perhaps even braving a traditional tattoo (the skin art is said to have originated here). Bora Bora is a famously dreamy travel destination and more than lives up to its reputation. For a romantic holiday in a tropical beach paradise there is no better choice.

Day 6: Huahine Huahine (French Polynesia)(Huahine)

Day 7: Papeete Papeete, Tahiti (French Polynesia)(Papeete)

Papeete will be your gateway to the tropical paradise of French Polynesia, where islands fringed with gorgeous beaches and turquoise ocean await to soothe the soul. This spirited city is the capital of French Polynesia, and serves as a superb base for onward exploration of Tahiti – an island of breathtaking landscapes and oceanic vistas. Wonderful lagoons of crisp, clear water beg to be snorkelled, stunning black beaches and blowholes pay tribute to the island's volcanic heritage, and lush green mountains beckon you inland on adventures, as you explore extraordinary Tahiti. Visit to relax inside picturesque stilted huts, which stand out over shimmering water, as you settle into the intoxicating rhythm of life, in this Polynesian paradise.

The Essence of Small Ship Sailing

The Wind Spirit is a sleek, 4-masted sailing ship accommodating 148 guests. With four decks and a gross tonnage of 5,736, Wind Spirit feels like your own private small ship.

Wind Spirit features wide open, teak decks—quite unusual for small ships. Guests will find hidden nooks for private moments giving them a feeling of being on their own private veranda.

All staterooms have ocean views, queen beds, flat-screen TV with DVD player, and Bose SoundDock speakers for Apple iPods. The Owner’s Suite includes a sitting area.

Wind Spirit offers two primary dining venues. Amphora restaurant offers gourmet, course-by-course cuisine in the evenings and Veranda restaurant offers casual buffet and full-service dining for breakfast and lunch. All dining is open seating. And, for dining under the stars, make a reservation for Candles which features steaks and skewers.

Wind Spirit amenities include: WindSpa, Watersports Platform, Lounge, Library, Pool, and Hot Tub.

Unique Feature

Windstar Cruises pride themselves in offering a one-of-a-kind experience. Not only is each ship small enough to feel homely, but the moment you step onboard, it feels like your own private yacht.

Amphora Restaurant

Here, the dining room manager seats you, but where is your decision. There are no pre-assigned tables or first or second seatings. When you dine and with whom are entirely up to you. Seating usually begins at 6:30 p.m. and will be printed in the ship's daily program. Each delightful dish is prepared exactly to your liking – an exquisite dinner served course-by-course with a fine selection of vintage wines.

Candles Grill

Treat your palate to the French-inspired café cuisine of Stella Bistro, Wind Surf’s alternative restaurant. You’ll find delightfully indulgent desserts and a wonderful array of wines specifically paired to the meal.

The Verandah

It's breakfast alfresco, full service or buffet-style, anytime till 9:30 a.m. No need to hurry. Again, the choices are many in Veranda. Choose the sumptuous, seemingly endless buffet. Or, order from the lunch menu between noon and 2:30 p.m.


Windstar automatically charges gratuities of $12 per person, per day to your onboard account. If you feel this amount needs to be adjusted, whether increased or decreased, arrangements can be made onboard the ship, generally at the end of your cruise. In addition, a gratuity of 15% is added to all bar tabs.

Entertainment Facilities

Onboard entertainment facilities include: Sun Deck, Library, Casino, The Lounge, Pool Bar and Signature Shop.

Health and Fitness Facilities

Onboard Health & Fitness facilities include a whirlpool, fitness centre, swimming pool and watersports platform.


As you enter the hushed atmosphere of the newly-expanded WindSpa, you'll feel every last care gently melt away. Maybe you'll try a Hydralift facial or a new colour on your toes. Maybe you'll surrender to the transformative power of a relaxing massage. With one of the highest crew-to-passenger ratios at sea, you will find yourself in the enviable position of never having to lift a finger.

The crew is happy to do whatever they can to make your time onboard as pampered as possible. Please book spa appointments with the hotel manager once you've boarded your yacht.
