The Wind Star vessel of Windstar Cruises recently made her call in Piraeus as part of her 7-day journey around Greece.

A sleek, 4-masted sailing ship accommodating 148 guests, the Wind Star has four decks and a gross tonnage of 5,307.

During the ship’s stay in Piraeus, Windstar Cruises’ representative in Greece, Discover the World, held a tour for travel agents and introduced the ship’s facilities, including the Windspa, watersports platform, lounge, library, pool, casino and two dining venues.

The Bahama-flagged ship stopped at Piraeus on June 22 after visiting Monemvasia. After Piraeus, the ship continued its journey with stops at more Greek destinations including Mykonos, Patmos, Santorini and Nafplio.
