Windstar Cruises announced an exciting new itinerary for 2023. The 79-day Grand European Bucket List Adventure is the longest itinerary ever offered by the small-ship cruise line.
The cruise departs from Stockholm, Sweden, July 25, 2023, and brings guests to 22 countries across the Baltic, Northern Atlantic, Mediterranean and Black Sea. Guests will spend 71 days in port and eight at sea. There are 11 overnights in port, offering guests the opportunity to explore destinations including Amsterdam, Bordeaux, Copenhagen and Seville. Windstar will present two first-time ports to guests in Germany (Binz and Hamburg) and one in Norway (Arendal). The cruise concludes in Istanbul, Turkey, Oct. 12, 2023, aboard Windstar’s new all-suite Star Legend yacht.
Windstar has experienced a record number of bookings. “We’re attributing our bookings to a pent-up demand for travel after most of the world has been sequestered for a year,” said Christopher Prelog, president, Windstar Cruises. “It’s creating a swift recovery for us, so much so that my advice is to book early as increased demand is real.”
Windstar offers other new regions on its 2021–2023 voyages, including Australia, New Zealand and Turkey. Request a brochure to learn more.
