Windstar Returns to Alaska in 2018 with Four New Cruise Tours
With the highly anticipated return of Windstar Cruises to the scenic beauty of Alaska in May 2018 (after a hiatus of more than 20 years from sailing in the region) comes an agenda of larger-than-life adventures awaiting those boarding the 212-guest Star Legend. We have just announced that a new batch of Alaska cruise tours are open for booking, combining the best of Alaska’s interior along with a cruise. The new cruise tours start at $4,269 per person.
The four new cruise tours will let visitors spend up to 20 days exploring by land and sea, while the newly announced Signature Expeditions will bring them even closer to the action with experiences like kayaking to explore glaciers with experienced glaciologists and marine biologists guiding the way. These experienced Signature Expeditions staffers also sail with guests for the entirety of their Windstar cruise – providing opportunities for personal discussions, lectures, and insider information. On tap with the new cruise tours will be unparalleled, up-close views of glaciers and the Inside Passage as well as the perfect combination of interior and port cities.
“Our cruise tours coupled with our new Signature Expeditions will take our guests beyond the expected. Traveling in small groups with more freedom to explore and meet locals eager to share their world and discovering some of the most authentic corners of ‘The Last Frontier’ by small ship are just a few of the spectacular highlights of Windstar’s new cruise tours in Alaska.”
∼ Windstar President John Delaney
On land, guests will see majestic Mount McKinley standing watch over the six million acres of rugged land and wildlife that is Denali National Park. Exploration of the park itself of course includes scouting for bears and other wildlife, and the journey to the park is a scenic adventure in its own right – reached via a deluxe domed train that passes remote and beautiful scenery along the journey. At sea, they will be able to cruise through Kenai Fjords National Park and up Misty Fjords past areas where larger cruise ships normally turn around, and then launch small watercraft directly from the ship to explore hidden coves and glacier-fed waterfalls, pausing to take in the jaw-dropping vistas or spot a humpback whale.
