Windstar Goes Big With Grand European Cruise 

Windstar Cruises’ new 79-day Grand European Bucket List Adventure – the longest itinerary ever offered by the award-winning small ship cruise line – is now open for sale; along with the company’s new cruise adventures scheduled through 2023.

The itineraries have been released online and in a new Voyage Collection brochure.

The Grand European cruise departs Stockholm, Sweden on July 25, 2023 and takes guests on a new voyage spanning 22 countries through the Baltic, Northern Atlantic, Mediterranean and Black Sea.

With 71 days in port (and only 8 at sea), the itinerary has just the right amount of rest and relaxation onboard between new discoveries and explorations.

There are also 11 overnights in port, giving guests a chance to dine/sample the nightlife in destinations like Bordeaux, Seville, Amsterdam, and Copenhagen. With an intense exploration of Germany (a new Windstar offering), there are two first-time Windstar ports in Hamburg and Binz, in addition to a new Norwegian port: Arendal.

The cruise finishes on October 12 in Istanbul, Turkey and takes place aboard Windstar’s new all-suite Star Legend yacht, carrying only 312 guests. The yacht is small enough to navigate through the tight Kiel and Corinth Canals on this special sailing.

The epic route along with other grand sailings like Windstar’s 60-day Grand South Pacific and 56-day Grand Caribbean Adventure are part of a growing trend of extravagant voyages and world cruises created to satiate a travel-starved cruise audience ready to book a once-in-a-lifetime trip.
