Windstar’s New Yacht and Voyages On Sale May 14th

This year continues to be an exciting one for Windstar Cruises. As most of the cruise industry focuses on bigger ships, we continue to invest in small-ship opportunities and intimate yacht-style cruising with the addition of our three new all-suite power yachts and the completion of the renovation on our three sailing yachts.

I am delighted to announce that voyages for Star Pride, Windstar Cruises' first all-suite power yacht, will open for sale tomorrow. Star Pride's Voyage Collection includes four new itineraries exclusive to the Star Pride. The one I am most excited about is Black Sea Tapestry. For the first time, Windstar Cruises will cruise the enigmatic, once hidden, wonders of the Black Sea in our signature, private yacht style. The voyage will depart from Istanbul, Turkey and visit Yalta, Sevastopol, and Odessa, Ukraine; Constanta (Bucharest), Romania; and Nessebar, Bulgaria. Visit our web site later this week to learn more about all Star Pride voyages. I'm also sending you a comprehensive brochure on the Star Pride Voyage Collection later this month.

As the three all-suite power yachts enter our fleet, with Star Pride being the first in May 2014, they will undergo upgrades and changes in styling and décor to align with Windstar's brand. The new power yachts will accommodate a maximum of 212 pampered guests with 106 suites, including four deluxe Owners' Suites, two beautiful Classic Suites, and 100 Balcony and Ocean View Suites.

Keeping true to our signature private yacht style, guests sailing on board Star Pride will experience Windstar's casual elegance and legendary service. With our new private all-suite yachts, you will continue to enjoy our celebrated Sail Away party, famous Yacht Deck Barbecue gala, access to the Bridge and exclusive experiences on shore as your yacht tucks into delightful tiny harbors and hidden coves that others can't reach.

I especially hope to see you on Star Pride's inaugural voyage in the Mediterranean, sailing May 5 to May 11, 2014. This six-day voyage is an exclusive event for Windstar's alumni members and invited guests. Following a christening ceremony, Star Pride will depart from Barcelona to Rome with several unique experiences throughout the voyage. Your invitation to this exclusive event will arrive soon and you are welcome to call Windstar Reservations for more information.

We will continue to share new details on these beautiful all-suite power yachts in the coming months. I look forward to seeing you on board one of our yachts soon.
