Win a small-ship cruise with Windstar Cruises

National Geographic Traveller (UK) has teamed up with Windstar Cruises to offer the winner and a guest a choice of three cruises

Up close & personal

Experience cultures in a personal, immersive and authentic way. With a maximum of 310 passengers, a Windstar ship is large enough to cater to the needs of guests, yet small enough to explore secluded coves and dock in the heart of tiny villages — places most larger ships are unable to reach.

Out to sea

Windstar’s fleet of small ships will indulge all your senses — especially your sense of wonder. On a Windstar journey you’ll see the world from a perspective that’s 180 degrees from ordinary.

Like a local

Docking at small ports and hidden harbours lets you experience unique cultures and far-flung lands close-up — for example, Windstar Cruises excursions involve encounters like a culinary tour of Da Nang, Vietnam; dinner with a Croatian family in their home; or snorkelling the Polynesian lagoon at Fakarava.
