You didn't say if you were looking at a sailing ship or one of the motor yachts. They may be a little bit different.
Thanks to rafinmd for the nice listing of daily itineraries, both while "in port" or on "sea days".
I agree with everything said so far. Our friend rafinmd is also quite right about the key differences between the sailing vessels and the motorized yachts. I've only been on one Windstar cruise so far, on the WS Star Breeze, so keep this in mind about the motorized yachts -- the suites are huge. I found it to be a big improvement over what the large cruise ships typically offer, unless you fork out major bucks for a large cabin.
If you decide to take advantage of Windstar, just consider the things that are most important for you. None of the fleet's ships will offer big-time entertainment, but they all will impress with the food offerings and personal service. You won't get "razzle dazzle" amped-up craziness, pool parties and belly flop competitions, and lots of people to meet and greet (and stand in long lines with at the buffet). You will get peace and quiet, and moments just being alone with each other. Big ports alongside other huge ships? Probably not. Small, out-of-the-way destinations? Oh yes.
If Windstar sounds good to you for that sexy, romantic honeymoon, prepare to have a low-stress, good time. Decide if you want the sails or the big suite, because that'll be your last decision when you select the ship.
