Windstar Cruises has unveiled new voyages for 2012 and now is the time to begin planning your journey. With nine new voyages, Windstar is sure to have the unique experience you’re looking for. “Discover a more authentic cultural experience you rarely find among large crowds. A voyage on Windstar feels like your own private yacht with one special amenity no other luxury cruise can provide — the exhilarating thrill of actually sailing the high seas.”
For seven days you can experience the ‘Flavors of the Caribbean’ while sailing round-trip from St. Maarten. The journey continues through Le Marin – a port on Martinique with one of the largest marinas in the Caribbean. From there, sail past the island’s famous Pitons (volcanic spires). You’ll head to Pigeon Island, Roseau, Falmouth Harbor, Gustavia and Philipsburg before reaching the final port of call in St. Maarten. The journey sails three times in January, February and March in 2012.
If you’re looking for a vacation out of the ordinary, sail the ‘Capitals of Scandinavia’ from Oslo to Stockholm. “History, art and architecture are the focus of this eventful voyage.” Beginning in Oslo, you travel through Stromstad, spend the night in Copenhagen, Rugan, Bornholm and end with a magical journey through Stockholm’s archipelagos. This trip is available on July and August in 2012.
Travel through the Islands of Italy on a seven day round-trip journey from Rome. “Depart Rome, with its famous treasures including the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Square, Coliseum, and Roman Forum, before sailing through the Tyrrhenian Sea to the lush island of Ischia, the largest of the islands in the bay of Naples.” You’ll sail to Sorrento, Lipari, Stromboli, Porto Cervo, Porto Vecchio all before ending your excursion in Rome. This journey is available four times in 2012 with departure dates on April, August and October.
Windstar Cruises offers the joy of sailing aboard a luxury cruise, with the feel of a private yacht – “with less than 320 guests on board you’ll quickly discover a genuine freedom to escape and explore as you want, when you want.”
