Hello Alana321,

I manage to find the following information from their site:
Embarkation time for Windstar Cruises ships is 1:00 p.m. All guests should be on board no later than 1 hour before departure. Passports are collected upon embarkation and held safely by the Purser's Office until the end of the cruise.

TRANSFERS

Windstar Cruises Air/Hotel Packages: If you have booked your air or hotel accommodations through Windstar Cruises, transfers are NOT included and have to be purchased separately. Services for Windstar cruise-only guests (individuals who do not purchase air transportation or cruise extensions from Windstar) begin with embarkation at the noted time in your cruise documents. Any transfers, meals, and dayroom accommodations required prior to this time are the responsibility of the traveler. Please make a note of this, as many international flights arrive several hours prior to the scheduled embarkation time.

Windstar Cruises Air/Hotel Packages: Purchasing Transfers: Guests may purchase transfers between airport and pier, between Windstar Cruises designated pre- / post-hotels and pier, and between airport and designated pre-/post-hotels if it is within standard Windstar Cruises Services.

Temporary Terminations: If guests have chosen to stay at a non-Windstar Cruises hotel, guests will not be able to purchase transfers. Transfers are NOT available for purchase for guests choosing to deviate from standard Windstar Cruises services. If there is a “temporary termination” (e.g., guests who have Windstar Cruises Major City Airport but have chosen to stay in a non-Windstar Cruises hotel or guests who arrive early and choose to stay at a non-Windstar Cruises hotel), no transfers will be available for purchase.

Services for Windstar cruise-only guests (individuals who do not purchase air transportation or cruise extensions from Windstar) begin with embarkation at the noted time in your cruise documents. Any transfers, meals and dayroom accommodations required prior to this time are the responsibility of the travelers. Please make a note of this, as many international flights arrive several hours prior to the scheduled embarkation time.

Guests may purchase a transfer from local airport to ship for day of sailing and from ship to local airport for day of disembarkation directly through Windstar Cruises Vacation Planners at 866-599-6323. Major City Air guests flying on dates other than the date of (dis) embarkation must arrange their own transfers unless the reason for the different date is because of the purchase of a cruise extension from Windstar Cruises. Transfers for these guests will be arranged between airport, hotel, and pier, as appropriate, so long as the transfer dates coincide with the dates of the services purchased from Windstar Cruises.
