Windstar Cruises has released its deal for the annual “Wave’’ Season, when companies roll out their best offers for the first few months of the year. It is arguably the best time for booking a cruise vacation and typically is when the majority of travelers plan their vacation for the year ahead.
Windstar’s 2022 Wave Season offer is valid through Feb. 28, 2022, and the “Pick Your Perk” savings options include:
- Up to $1,000 onboard credit per stateroom or
- Up to two free Easy Stay hotel nights with included transfer between hotel and yacht + full breakfast + Wi-Fi + resort fees and taxes
Guests can pick one complimentary perk, which varies in exact amount depending on the length of the cruise and room category. In addition, Yacht Club Members (Windstar’s returning guests) can earn double the referral credit of $200 when referring a friend. Travel Advisors booking new-to-Windstar guests will receive a $100 per booking bonus commission or a $100 Visa gift card.
Windstar’s Beyond Ordinary Care health and safety program requires everyone aboard to be vaccinated. Upon arrival at the yacht, each guest is given a complimentary COVID-19 antigen test. Windstar’s fleet is outfitted with antigen and PCR testing systems and can deliver tests to meet current policies for all U.S. bound travelers to show a negative COVID-19 test result taken within a day of departure to the U.S.
“We have been tracking consumer sentiment from the start of this pandemic, and one consistent theme is that people want to travel as soon as they feel safe,” said Windstar President Christopher Prelog. “Windstar guests are very comfortable in booking their favorite destination on our small ships. We see a tremendous pent-up demand for travel, particularly amongst those who are used to traveling internationally every year. Our cruises in the end of 2022 and into 2023 are booking extremely well, so my advice for travelers interested in smaller ships like Windstar’s, is to not wait to book. Space likely will be difficult to find.”
Windstar Cruises specializes in small-ship cruising to waterways and ports where the mega ships can’t sail. Its three all-suite, Star Plus Class yachts and three classic Wind Class sailing yachts host between 148 and 342 guests in an unpretentious atmosphere while delivering a luxury experience. The line is known for its caring crew and fine dining and is the official cruise line of the James Beard Foundation.
