Windstar’s flagship yacht resumes operations in the Mediterranean

SEATTLE — Windstar Cruises’ flagship, Wind Surf, has returned to the sea with an eight-day voyage in the Mediterranean.

This marks the fourth of six yachts in Windstar’s fleet to be back in the water cruising.

The 342-guest Wind Surf, the largest sailing ship in the world, departed on Aug. 8 from Barcelona to Lisbon, stopping at ports including Palma de Mallorca, Cartagena, Almería, Málaga, Gibraltar and Cadiz. 

Windstar is returning to operations in a phased manner, with its fleet of six yachts debuting on various dates through November. It is requiring all passengers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, among a host of other health and safety precautions that include testing, social distancing and masking. Windstar has also installed high-tech air filtration on its yachts.

On June 19, Windstar’s Wind Star yacht was the first in its fleet to resume revenue operations in Greece, followed by Star Breeze on July 10 in the Caribbean. On July 15, Wind Spirit resumed operations in Tahiti. All yachts are sailing with vaccinated guests and crew.
