Once on shore, the swaying palms, white-sand beaches and sea in various shades of turquoise are so seductive they’re nearly hypnotic. Romance is quite literally in the air. Get in the water to snorkel or dive with black-tipped sharks and petting stingrays, their skin velvety smooth. The diving here is excellent. You’ll have plenty of time to explore since your Windstar Bora Bora cruise experience includes an overnight in this island oasis.

New COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement - UPDATED April 1, 2021

Windstar Cruises will require proof of a current COVID-19 vaccination for all guests sailing aboard Windstar’s yachts. Proof includes the original vaccination record document issued by either (1) the country’s health authority that administered the vaccination (i.e. U.S. CDC's Vaccination Record Card) or (2) the guest's medical provider that administered the vaccination. The cruise line arrived at the decision in the best health and wellness interests of its guests, crew, and the places the yachts visit.
At the cruise terminal prior to embarkation, guests will be required to provide proof of a completed current vaccine course (one or two shots, depending on the brand) finished at least 14 days prior to the guest’s embarkation date.
NEW: No COVID-19 PCR test is required at pier. Windstar will require and administer a free COVID-19 antigen test at pier prior to boarding. A negative test result is required to board.
The Beyond Ordinary Care program is a multi-layered strategy with key hospital-grade elements: HEPA filters and UV-C ultraviolet germicidal irradiation to filter and disinfect the air, plus electrostatic sprayers to sanitize all surfaces throughout the yacht.
We are making a multi-million dollar investment in our fleet to provide a healthy environment while sailing on a Windstar yacht. Hospital grade high-efficiency particulate (HEPA) filters along with a UV-C air zapping process (ultraviolet germicidal irradiation) are being installed on board all Windstar yachts.
Our Beyond Ordinary Care program was developed with consultation and review by the Senior Medical Director at the UC Health Infection Control and Prevention Department at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and implements a rigorous multi-layered approach of science-led best practices aimed at keeping everyone aboard healthy.
