MIAMI — Calling all beach bums! Windstar Cruises has announced a brand new itinerary that includes seven days in some of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean.
Beginning in winter 2023, ‘Beach Fun & Sun: A Remote Caribbean Getaway’ will visit St. Maarten, Antigua, St. Barts, Anguilla, Jost Van Dyke (overnight), Virgin Gorda, and Tortola. The Nov. 4 sailing will take place onboard Windstar’s all-suite Star Price, while another eight departures will be aboard the 342-guest Wind Surf.
Both yachts’ Watersports Platforms, which allow guests to jump from the yacht into the sea, will be operational daily on these cruises (except for embarkation/disembarkation days), allowing for more time on beaches and in the water.
“We created this itinerary specifically for people who like to spend time enjoying some of the best tropical beaches, swimming and watersports activities,” said Windstar Cruises’ President Christopher Prelog. “Our small yachts visit scenic Caribbean islands for a peaceful, relaxing vacation away from crowds.”
Current rates for ‘Beach Fun & Sun’ start at US$2,599 per guest. The itinerary can easily be combined with Windstar’s ‘Classic Caribbean’ for a two-week cruise, as the itineraries alternate and both depart from St. Maarten. ‘Classic Caribbean’ includes stops in Dominica, Guadeloupe, St. Kitts and Nevis, as well as a repeat in St. Barts.
Also starting winter 2023, Windstar is introducing a new seven-day roundtrip Costa Rica itinerary from Puerto Caldera called ‘Naturally Costa Rica,’ priced from $2,699 per guest. The voyage includes inaugural calls in San Juan del Sur and Corinto in Nicaragua, and can easily be combined with a Windstar Panama Canal itinerary for a 14-day adventure in the region.
Other returning Caribbean itineraries include: ‘Windward Island Surfs & Sunsets,’ a seven-day rountrip San Juan sailing that travels up and down the Windward Islands; ‘Windward Ways & Tobago Cays,’ sailing through the Windward and ABC Islands; and ‘Yachtsman’s Caribbean,’ a classic voyage to the Caribbean’s private yachting scene.
