Cruise line rankings in the 2013 Travel + Leisure’s World Best Awards are based on readers’ ratings of cruise ships on the following characteristics: cabins, restaurants/food, service, itineraries/destinations, excursions/activities, and value. This year’s full results will be published in the August 2013 issue of the magazine.

“We’re so proud to have our unique itineraries, personalized service and private yacht style cruising recognized by our loyal cruisers,” said Hans Birkholz, Windstar Cruises’ Chief Executive Officer. “Our teams both onboard and onshore continually strive to create memorable experiences for our guests, and it’s an honour for us to be acknowledged by the people we serve every day.”

This is not the first time Windstar guests have spoken, last month Windstar’s Wind Surf and Wind Star were named as the “Best Small Ships” in Condé Nast Traveller’s2013 Reader’s Cruise Poll and voted Wind Surf #3 in “Best Overall Small Ship” and #1 for “Best Embarkation” in its 2013 Cruisers’ Choice Awards. In addition, Yahoo!
