Windstar Cruises has released its sailing schedule through summer of 2025, including all-new itineraries in the South Pacific and Central America, as well as three new cruises to the Canary Islands, and more.
"People are spending more and traveling longer, and they are taking notice of the tremendous value that a Windstar cruise provides," said Windstar president Christopher Prelog. "Our new deployment works towards responding to those trends with longer and even more remote options in Tahiti, as well as more connections between different itineraries to extend trips in new and exciting ways."
Windstar will go beyond its usual Tahitian cruise stops to the remote Marquesas Islands on the brand-new 14-day Tahitian Treasures & Magnificent Marquesas in 2024 and 2025 onboard the Star Breeze. The itinerary includes the Tuamotu Islands of Fakarava and Rangiroa en route to and from the Marquesas, where the ship spends time in Omoa, Fatu Hiva; Atuona, Hiva Oa; and Taiohae, Nuku Hiva, ending with the Society Islands of Tahaa, Bora Bora (overnight), Moorea and Papeete.
New options in the Canary Islands will include an eight-day Captivating Canary Islands onboard Star Pride from Lisbon to Madeira in 2024, and the 10-day Canary Island Idyll and eight-day Colorful Canary Islands in 2025.
New in the Med will be the nine-day Adriatic Icons & Venetian Treasures, debuting in July 2024 and sailing roundtrip form Venice on Wind Spirit.
Central & South America
Starting in winter 2024, the all-new seven-day Naturally Costa Rica itinerary will feature inaugural calls to San Juan del Sur and Corinto, Nicaragua. The sailings are timed to be easily combined with a Panama Canal itinerary for a 14-day adventure in the region.
Windstar makes its debut in the Middle East this November, with sailings, comprising 12 different itineraries, planned into spring of 2025.
In connection with the opening of sailings into 2025, Windstar is offering an early-bird promotion: clients who book a 2025 cruise in Europe, Tahiti or Canada/New England will receive a $100 per guest shipboard credit and a free upgrade to an All-Inclusive Fare, which includes unlimited beer, wine, cocktails, Wi-Fi, and gratuities. Bookings must be made by July 5, 2023.
