Windstar Cruises is offering deals on new winter and Christmas itineraries in Europe, starting from £1,230pp.
The 312-passenger Star Legend, which was originally scheduled to sail to the Middle East this winter, will now operate on the cruise line’s first winter and Christmas season in Europe.
Called Legendary Winter in the Mediterranean, the itineraries will sail from December 2023 to April 2024.
Windstar Cruises has also rolled out an incentive for travel agents, Sell One and Sail Free. Those who make a reservation through December 31 2023 for one of the new winter cruises earn a complimentary suite for themselves and a guest.
Augustus Lonsdale, Head of Sales, UK & Ireland at Windstar, said: “These new itineraries in the Mediterranean offer agents the perfect chance to introduce Windstar to clients who are passionate about river cruises, boutique hotels or small group tours, but new to small ship ocean cruising and our brand.
“With hotel prices on the rise across Europe, I am confident that this is the best value way to visit the region, where guests will experience destinations they may know well in a quieter and more intimate light, whilst also benefitting from lower flight costs. By offering our Sell One, Sail Free programme, agents can also benefit from a chance to experience Windstar for themselves – increasing their knowledge of our brand ahead of what we are certain will be a landmark year for us in the UK.”
Sixteen Legendary Winter in the Mediterranean cruises will set sail from December 10 2023 to March 31 2024, including one-week itineraries between Rome and Barcelona, as well as an eight-day cruise from Rome to Athens.
