Surrounded by the night sky, with the breeze of the sea brushing against your skin, there's nothing like taking in a meal at Candles, Windstar's signature outdoor restaurant transformed by night into a dreamlike paradise.
With delectable cuisine, memorable surroundings and inspired wine pairings, it's the perfect place for an aromantic tete-a-tete under the stars.
One of the highlights of your cruise will be the spectacular onboard barbecue. Your attentive crew will serve an amazing meal of international cuisines accompanied by their own special brand of entertainment for an evening entertainment under the stars.

The Veranda is the place to be in the morning, with breakfast alfresco, full service or buffet-style, until 9:30am. No need to hurry—you can take as long as you want to decide what you're going to eat.
The choices are many in the Veranda. Choose from an endless buffet of sumptuous treats and entrees. Or, order lunch from the menu between noon and 2:30pm.
The Amphora dining room is a place of elegance and grandeur. 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 6:30pm 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.
The Amphora menu changes daily, but you can expect some of your favorites on every voyage: lobster bisque, filet mignon au poivre, roasted rack of lamb, veal scallopini, breast of duckling and roasted pheasant breast all make appearances on this luxurious menu.
With Windstar Cruises, there are no crowds and no lines—just you and your fellow travelers. You can do as much or as little as you want on board our yachts—we'll take care of everything else!

Windstar Cruises has launched SpaceX's Starlink internet service on its Star Pride vessel during a Caribbean voyage, with plans to introduce it to other ships in its fleet. Windstar aims to add Starlink to most of its fleet worldwide by mid-2023, starting with Star Legend this spring, followed by Wind Surf, Wind Star, and Star Breeze. Wind Spirit will activate the new technology as soon as it's available in French Polynesia. According to Windstar's technology director, Gregg Wagner, Starlink will offer faster speeds, alleviating the frustration felt at peak use times.
