Windstar Cruises has launched its 2021-22 small ship brochure in digital form.

The Voyage Collection features sailings along the US west coast, Mexico and in the South Pacific and new additions which were due in 2020 but cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sailings include a seven-day Alaska cruise, a Black Sea itinerary, cruises that access the Holy Lands, as well as a return to some ports in Canada and New England after a one-year hiatus.

US departures include two yachts sailing Caribbean cruises roundtrip from San Juan, Puerto Rico. The 2021-22 collection includes more Cruise Tours than ever before, in response to increased demand.

Windstar operates six small yachts carrying 148 to 342 guests, with 148-guest Wind Spirit its first to resume sailing on October 15, 2020, in Tahiti. Some Windstar yachts will start cruising in the Mediterranean in October and the Caribbean in November.

By 2021, three all-suite yachts, renamed the Star Plus Class, will be relaunched with 312 guests per ship, up from 212. The first, Star Breeze, will emerge from drydock in autumn 2020 and sail Windstar’s new itineraries in California and the Sea of Cortez.

“The global cruise industry is facing its biggest challenge yet, but we’re incredibly optimistic for the future of small ship cruising and Windstar,” said chief executive Andrew Todd. “That’s why we’re excited to put out this brochure – because dreaming about and planning the next trip is a hopeful and uplifting experience.

“We want to celebrate that travel promise and also give our customers the confidence needed to book, along with the assurance that we will protect their investment should plans change.”

Windstar recently launched a Travel Assurance Booking Policy and a new Beyond Ordinary Care health and safety programme.

In the UK, cruises can be booked via Windstar’s general sales agent, The Cruise Portfolio.
