Windstar Cruises has launched their new Travel Assurance Booking Policy that will go into effect for all cruises on or after June 1, 2020. You will now be able to cancel a cruise up to 15 days before your cruise departs.
The cruise line said that the reason for this change was due to the challenge of booking vacations in advance and aims to allay travelers’ concerns about losing money due to unexpected illness or other world events.
Travelers who cancel a cruise booking up to 15 days prior to departure will receive a 100% Future Cruise Credit to be used on another Windstar departure within one year of the issue date of the credit. The offer is good for cruise fare only.
Windstar Cruises’ Travel Assurance Booking Policy automatically applies to new and existing cruises departing on or after June 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021.
Windstar Cruises operates a fleet of six small yachts carrying from 148 to 342 guests on voyages around the world. During summer 2020 travelers can join a coastal cruise sailing along the U.S. West Coast or sail in Alaska, Greece, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, or Tahiti and the South Pacific.
In May 2020, Star Breeze will be the first of three yachts emerging from a $250 million Star Plus Initiative with a lengthened cruise ship featuring two new restaurants, a larger spa and fitness center, expanded pool and fifty new suites. Star Legend and Star Pride follow in August and November. The 342 guest Wind Surf underwent a major refurbishment in fall 2019.
