Windstar Cruises announces Fourth of July Sale

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On June - 27 - 2017

Small ship cruise line Windstar Cruises today announces its Fourth of July One Week Sale, running June 28-July 7.

From $1,099 per guest on over 100 sailings in 2017 and 2018, the sale encompasses ALL of Windstar’s cruising regions including the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Asia / Arabia, Costa Rica / Panama, the Caribbean, Alaska, and Canada / New England.

With more than 50 different Windstar itineraries included in the One Week Sale, here are a few highlights:

Southeast Canadian Explorations from Montreal to Boston over nine days takes guests from one postcard-perfect scene to another in waters alive with whales and fishing boats. Tracing the historic Freedom Trail in Boston or exploring the New England charm and Victorian-era architecture in Portland are great ways for guests to connect with America’s earliest roots.

Elsewhere in America in the “Last Frontier,” Windstar is including its new Alaskan Splendors itinerary in the Fourth of July One Week Sale. From Vancouver to Seward (Anchorage) over 11 days, it offers a tour de force of top Alaskan destinations. From the wildlife and glaciers of the Inside Passage to the First Nations totems of Ketchikan; hiking in Haines or sampling its cultural offerings like the Alaska Indian Arts Center, where traditional craftsmen offer demonstrations of their work; to the biggest zip-line in the United States in Icy Strait Point … it’s all of southeast Alaska’s most intriguing ports.

Back in the “Old World,” Windstar is including its special food- and wine-themed James Beard Foundation Epicurean Explorations of France, Spain, and Portugal sailing with Chef Hugh Acheson, winner of multiple James Beard awards and “Top Chef” judge. The itinerary sails to the famed wine region of Bordeaux for an overnight stay and wine valley visit, as well as visiting the storied oyster beds of Northern France. Guests also will enjoy cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, featured dishes, and wine pairings at dinner.

And with extended sailings, Windstar is also including sale itineraries within its new Star Collector Voyages, where longer and more in-depth voyages from 14 to 34 days feature few repeated ports. In addition to the elegance of an extended trip with the luxury of unpacking only once, guests also get to take advantage of traveling light for these epic journeys, as all Star Collector Voyages include free daily laundry service.
