Windstar Cruises has released a new schedule of cruises for its fleet for 2021, bringing the ships closer to North America.
“We’ve made changes to our 2021 cruise schedule to accommodate new launch dates of the Star Class yachts and a desire for more sailings from U.S. and Caribbean ports,” said Xanterra and Windstar Cruises CEO Andrew Todd. “And though bookings are ahead of where they were at this time last year, we want to offer the best deal we can to travelers ready to cruise in 2021.”
The 312-guest Star Breeze begins sailing October 27, 2020. Her new schedule includes four cruises in the Mediterranean before she heads to the Caribbean to sail among the islands from late December 2020 to March 2021. Weeklong cruises on two itineraries sail roundtrip from San Juan, Puerto Rico are offered.
In late April, the ship sails two new Central American cruises departing from Miami before beginning to make its way north along the coast cruising new itineraries in Costa Rica and Panama, Mexico, and along the West Coast to Vancouver, B.C. where she begins her summer of cruising in Southeast Alaska.
In September, the Star Breeze sails for Asia and then on to her first season in Australia and New Zealand in December 2021.
