Epi­curean stars

With a top chef on board and a mouth-wa­ter­ing list of port calls, Windstar Cruises’ Epi­curean Ex­plo­ration af­forded Chris Dwyer a de­li­cious taste of Europe.

Cruise Passenger - - PUBLISHER’S LETTER -

A mouth-wa­ter­ing cruise on Star Leg­end.

Seat­tle-based Windstar Cruises is a spe­cial­ist in small ships, or yachts as the line prefers to call them, which means the travel ex­pe­ri­ence feels con­sid­er­ably more be­spoke and per­sonal than on vast ships with thou­sands of pas­sen­gers.

On our jour­ney aboard Star Leg­end, there were 156 crew from 20 coun­tries look­ing af­ter

198 pas­sen­gers, most of whom were North Amer­i­can, with a smat­ter­ing of Euro­peans.

We were drawn to the grandly named Epi­curean Ex­plo­ration voy­age, a chance to dis­cover some of the in­cred­i­ble pro­duce and restau­rants of Ire­land, France, Spain and Por­tu­gal in on a 10-night cruise from Dublin to Lis­bon.
