We pride ourselves on visiting some of the world’s most compelling ports, whether they be tropical havens in the Caribbean, rainforests in Costa Rica, or cultural meccas in Europe. Our Hotel Packages are a convenient and affordable option to extend your vacation. Each hotel is hand-selected by Windstar and packages include taxes, luggage handling, and breakfast at most properties. And, let’s face it – certain destinations deserve some extra time.
Barcelona deserves more than one day. In fact, you could spend your entire day exploring just one of the city’s incredible museums and Gothic structures. Between some of the world’s most renowned urban beaches, the stunning architecture and the fresh Catalan cuisine, a visitor could explore Barcelona for weeks without even denting the surface.
Then there’s Athens – home to over half of Greece’s entire population and stuffed to the brim with historical monuments demanding exploration. An entire day could be spent sampling ouzo and moussaka in small urban cafes tucked between narrow cobblestone streets, grape vines twisting overhead. Whether you decide to stay within the city or venture on a day trip to Delphi (which many think is an essential element of a trip to Greece) or some of the nearby islands from the Athenian port of Piraeus, there are many “musts” to discover which overflow a 24-hour time limit.
From Nice to Portugal to Istanbul and many more, our itineraries begin and end in some of the most intriguing ports on Earth. And because we visit so many places demanding a little extra time, we’re making it easier to stay longer! Stay one to three nights in select destinations with our Hotel Packages at prices that are as irresistible as the places themselves.
