Ready to be pampered on a five star yacht in Tahiti? You can sail year round with Windstar Cruises in French Polynesia.

CEO Hans Birkholz is a fellow University of Pennsylvania grad from the Wharton School and was telling me about their six yachts that are all less than 300 passengers. A very different experience than my days when I worked onboard at Princess Cruises. When sailing with Windstar Cruises it is all about you, the crew will  learn your name and your preferences and you will enjoy an authentic destination in private yacht style.

I am ready to experience magical moments, private events, and the open bridge. Who wants to go with me? Air Tahiti Nui will make sure your vacation begins the moment you board their flight. Pick a seven or eleven day sailing –or better yet enter the contest to win a 5 cabin prize!

Personally, I would love to return to Bora Bora Lagoon and hike the mountains in Moorea. French Polynesia is so stunning. The shark diving in Bora Bora was memorable and I cannot wait to go back.

Windstar Cruises has special events in all their locations from a night in Cafe de Paris in Monte Carlo, to dining in the library at Ephesus or a swim lesson by Mark Spitz. See more by small ship and dream of Tahiti.

 Starting on June 17 through July 19, Windstar is offering the chance to win a Tahitian cruise for one winner and nine close friends. Enter online and receive a referral link to share with friends. The more friends who use that link to enter, the more entries you receive. The winner of the sweepstakes will be revealed on July 31.
I loved the dancing by Nonosina Polynesia at EP & LP restaurant on the rooftop. Enjoy the video!
