Windstar Cruises has announced its new winter itineraries from December 2023 to April 2024 to Barcelona, Nice, Florence/Livorno, Marseille and Rome aboard the award-winning all-suite, 312-guest Star Legend.

Windstar Cruises President Christopher Prelog said:

“The ship was originally scheduled to sail in the Middle East. We’ve postponed our launch in that region to begin in November 2024.

“With a ship in the Mediterranean, we saw an opportunity to offer guests a legendary winter season in Europe.

“Our small ships and intimate atmosphere provide a truly unique way to explore Europe’s winter wonderlands while enjoying the magic of the season and the comforts and casual luxury that Windstar is known for.”

The cruise line said that “the quieter, more intimate charm of the winter months offers an exclusive perspective on these timeless destinations.”

These seven-night itineraries will allow guests to take advantage of fewer crowds and easier access to museums, cultural events and historical landmarks, as well as local cuisine and genuine engagement with locals.

Guests can look forward to a blend of cultural exploration and festive celebrations that can only be enjoyed during the winter season through Spring.

New week-long cruises in the Mediterranean will be offered from December 2023 through April 2024.

Sixteen cruises will sail between Rome and Barcelona (or reverse) visiting Florence and Pisa (Livorno) and Marseille with overnights in the iconic cities of Rome, Barcelona and Monte Carlo.

The last of the new Mediterranean series is an eight-night cruise from Rome to Athens visiting the Amalfi Coast and Greece.

A Christmas holiday sailing can be booked as an eight- or nine-day cruise, the latter including New Year’s Eve.

The schedule change has presented Windstar with the opportunity to position its all-suite Star Legend in Cannes in early December to coincide with the International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM) conference.

Windstar executives including Prelog, Vice President of Sales Dianna Rom, and Chief Commercial Officer Janet Bava will be on hand to showcase the ship’s renovation completed as part of the $250 Million Star Plus Initiative and with an opportunity to sail on a two -night cruise to Rome after the event.
