Plus NEW SOUTH PACIFIC ITINERARIES
Windstar Cruises announces 14 new itineraries and new destinations in the South Pacific for 2020-2021 on board the 148-passenger MSY Wind Spirit.
The iconic sailing ship, designed for warm trade winds, is the belle of French Polynesia cruising there year-round.
In 2020, the four-masted Wind Spirit ventures to farther shores offering multiple sail dates with maiden (first time) port calls in Fiji, Tonga, New Caledonia, the Cook Islands, and Australia, sailing February through June 2020. Wind Spirit will return to the Islands of Tahiti and the Tuamotus in July 2020, with cruise departures available to reserve now through December 2021 for tropical adventure and romance seekers.
AND introducing 59 & 60-day Star Collector: Grand South Pacific Adventures
NEW: Star Collector: Grand South Pacific & More Star Collectors (15 to 60 days in 2020)
Windstar offers a broad selection of Star Collector Voyages, back-to-back sailings varying from two weeks to two months with complimentary laundry service. Wind Spirit’s 15 to 60-day itinerary options call at a variety of ports across Polynesia, Melanesia, and Australia from February through June. Two ultimate Star Collector: Grand South Pacific sailings are the most impressive of these journeys, with two months sailing between Tahiti and Singapore; the first 60-day sailing departs on February 6, 2020 from Tahiti and the return 59-day voyage sails May 4, 2020 from Singapore.
NEW: South Pacific Undiscovered: Fiji, Vanuatu & New Caledonia (8 or 9 days: offered in 2020)
From Lautoka, Fiji to Noumea, New Caledonia this itinerary is packed with adventure. Underwater caves, coral reefs, cascading waterfalls, and a live volcano offer a bounty of natural beauty and opportunity for active adventure, but this expedition is well-balanced with culture. Spectacular small ports like Yasawa-I-Rara Island are only accessible to small ships like Wind Spirit.
NEW: Polynesia: Pearls of Paradise (15 days: offered in 2020)
Wind Spirit sails from Papeete, Tahiti to Lautoka, Fiji and through a brilliant kaleidoscope of the South Pacific’s lagoons, reefs, water, and sea life. Along the way guests explore Suva, Fiji, the capital, with its British colonial buildings, farmer’s market, and diverse culinary scene; Niue, one of the smallest countries in the world; and the rarely visited port of Vava’u, Tonga. In Rarotonga, hub of the Cook Islands, guests can pair excellent snorkeling with a dip into the emerging foodie culture.
NEW: Australia & Indonesia Encounter (16 days: offered in 2020)
This voyage from Cairns, Australia to Benoa, Bali, Indonesia is a mix of bucket-list musts and undiscovered jewels. Beginning on the fringe of the Great Barrier Reef, guests then set sail for the charming fishing village of Port Douglas before setting out for the adventure of a wet landing at Thursday Island, and an introduction to the indigenous Torre Strait islanders. A stop in Yirrkala is a chance to learn about the Aboriginal people, their culture (one of the world’s oldest), and arts.
NEW: Uncommon Indonesia (12 or 14 days: offered in 2020)
Starting in Benoa and Bali’s spectacular beauty, this cruise also stops at rarely visited ports like Lembar, and off-the-beaten-path ports like remote Pulau Menyawakan and Seribu, with access to secluded unspoiled beaches of Pantara Island featuring white-sand surrounded by emerald-green waters. The Indonesian adventure concludes in Singapore.
NEW: Coral Sea Crossing: New Caledonia to Australia (7 days: offered in 2020)
This crossing offers plenty of time to relax, read, visit the Bridge, and participate in onboard programs.
Dreams of Tahiti (7 days: now through December 2021)
Visiting six islands in seven days, the itinerary maximizes opportunities for snorkeling (with a chance to even harvest a black pearl), diving, and use of the Watersports Platform. Overnight stops in Raiatea and Bora Bora allow generous time for both water activities and onshore cultural exploration. On Bora Bora guests enjoy an exclusive Destination Discovery Event with a private feast on the beach and fire dancing. New shore excursions for this classic cruise include a scenic helicopter flight over Bora Bora, as well as an off-road, four-wheel-drive excursion on Bora Bora, with great views of the island’s natural harbor and a chance to learn about the island’s history.
Tahiti & the Tuamoto Islands (10 days: now through December 2021)
This Papeete to Papeete voyage island-hops the Society Islands, the inspiration for “South Pacific,” as outlined above, but with additional stops at the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve on Fakarava and Rangiroa, Tuamoto Islands. 2019 offers a new excursion option of taking an e-bike to discover the North Fakarava atoll, pedaling from the village of Rotoava to the old lighthouse of Topaka.
