Windstar Cruises Has A Deal For Travel Advisors

Windstar Cruises’ first-ever winter and holiday itineraries in Europe are now available for booking, and on top of low pricing from just $1,399 per person, Windstar has added a new offer for travel advisors: Sell One & Sail Free.

Advisors who make a reservation through Dec. 31, 2023 for one of the Legendary Winter in the Mediterranean cruises (sailing from December 2023 to April 2024) earn a complimentary suite for themselves and a guest.

Details of the offer are available at

As announced in October, the 312-passenger all-suite Star Legend was originally scheduled to sail the Middle East this winter. Windstar has postponed the regional launch until November 2024, instead pivoting to offer a first-ever winter and holiday season in Europe – an endeavour usually reserved for river cruising.

Windstar Vice President of Sales Dianna Rom, explained: “We’re using this change to introduce Windstar and small ship ocean cruising to clients that are already passionate about river cruises, boutique hotels, or small group tours.”

Rom continued: “Europe in winter is quieter and more intimate with fewer crowds and lower airfare costs as well. Our travel advisors and their clients will appreciate easier access to museums and landmarks, cultural events, local restaurants, and genuine engagement with locals. This is an opportunity for first-time Windstar guests as well as last-minute groups.”

Sixteen Legendary Winter in the Mediterranean cruises set sail from Dec. 10 through March 31. The majority are one-week itineraries between Rome and Barcelona (or reverse) visiting Florence/Pisa (Livorno), Italy; Marseille, France; an overnight in Nice, France; plus, overnights in Rome and Barcelona. A Christmas holiday sailing can be booked as an 8- or 9-day cruise, the latter including New Year’s Eve. The last of the new Mediterranean series is an 8-day cruise from Rome to Athens visiting the Amalfi Coast and Greece.

One of the 7-day Rome to Barcelona cruises will also be a themed James Beard Foundation culinary cruise departing on February 4 led by Chef Omar Anani, chef-owner of the James Beard-nominated Saffron De Twah bistro.

In addition, for all 7-day cruises guests can choose to pay $175 per person/night and stay one or two extra nights on board as the ship remains in port, thus extending their experience in Rome and/or Barcelona at an incredible value. Cruise rates start at $1,399 per person and all-inclusive fares are available for an additional $89 per day.
