Windstar Cruises will offer a year of sailings in the South Pacific, exploring the islands of French Polynesia.
From 26 May 2015, the recently-renovated, 148-passenger Wind Spirit yacht will offer a series of seven-day ‘Dreams of Tahiti’ voyages, plus new extended 10- or 11-day cruises including stops in the Tuamotu Islands.
Windstar returned to Tahiti in 2014 for the first time in a decade.
“When we returned to Tahiti this year, we knew it would be a popular choice for our guests,” said Hans Birkholz, Windstar’s chief executive officer. “Now with the addition of our Star Breeze and Star Legend power yachts, which debut in May of 2015, we’re able to extend our sailings in Tahiti year-round to accommodate the demand from our customers. We can’t wait to sail throughout the year in paradise.”
The ‘Dreams of Tahiti’ voyage begins in Papeete and sails to Moorea, Tahaa, Raiatea, Huahine and Bora Bora.
The ‘Tahiti and the Tuamotu Islands’ itinerary meanwhile, will operate four times in 2015 and seven in 2016, and includes the aforementioned itinerary plus stops in Takapoto and Rangiroa in the Tuamotus, as well as two days at sea on the South Pacific.
The 11-day voyage also features a stop in Fakarava, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
