DINING WITH WINDSTAR
It is 7:30 in the morning. You awake to hear the gentle tradewinds filling the sails. The smell of freshly-brewed Colombian coffee and buttery croissants lures you topside to the Veranda. It's breakfast al fresco, full service or buffet-style, anytime till 9:30. No need to hurry. Or if you prefer, linger over a continental breakfast served in the privacy of your stateroom. Whichever is fine with us. After all, this is what the good life is all about: doing what you please, when you please.
Again, the choices are many in the Veranda. Choose the sumptuous, seemingly endless buffet. Or, order from the lunch menu.
In the evening, we turn the spotlight to our elegant, wood-paneled restaurant. Here, the dining room manager seats you, but where is your decision. There are no preassigned tables or first or second seatings. When you dine and with whom are entirely up to you. (Seating usually begins at 7:30 p.m. and will be printed in the ship's daily program.) On the Wind Surf, you can enjoy the lively Degrees, featuring special themed dinners like Italian, Indonesian, Steak House and an eclectic choice of wines.
The evening attire onboard Windstar is specified as "casual elegance"- the emphasis weighted heavily on the former.
The cuisine is exquisite ... a unique creation of light and savory entrees using fresh native food and tropical accents. What will it be? Pear and goat cheese salad with prosciutto? Roasted eggplant and garlic soup? Grilled ahi tuna with Asian vegetables and a ginger pink peppercorn sauce? Or perhaps a mocha and chocolate terrine with almond sauce? To all this, we add a fine selection of vintage wines.
We offer Sail light and vegetarian recipes, specially created by our Chefs on board. In addition, our Executive Chef on board is available to help you choose light fare upon request.
Complimentary room service is available 24 hours a day for sandwiches, selected canapes, coffee and tea.
