Windstar Cruises is serving up intimate adventures and active enrichment with a luxurious twist announcing the launch of a new Signature Expeditions program. Windstar’s Signature Expeditions will offer extremely high touch experiences both onboard ship and in the marine and wildlife environments where the award-winning boutique line sails. The new Signature Expeditions program kicks off in May of 2018 with Windstar’s greatly anticipated return to the Great Land of Alaska.

Windstar has engaged a team of expedition specialists to assist with the creation of Windstar’s new Signature Expeditions in Alaska, as well as operate the program on board. These geologists, glaciologists, marine biologists, and other experts will give commentary, interact with guests, and be available to answer guest questions throughout the cruise.

For the Alaskan debut of Windstar’s new Signature Expeditions, which the company plans to expand to other cruising regions in the future, travellers can choose from morning and afternoon watercraft tours that will leave directly from the ship’s tender and/or Watersports Platform, which means less time traveling and more time making the most out of the vacation. These special places are nearly impossible to reach without access directly from the ship. 

Windstar announced its plans to return to Alaska after being away from the region for more than two decades. The inaugural 2018 sailing in the region begins in May aboard the 212-passenger, all-suite Star Legend, with the sailing season continuing through September 10.

The itineraries include less-visited ports like Metlakatla and Wrangell, as well as feature longer 14-day cruises to slow down and truly enjoy scenic cruising amongst the glaciers, including Tracy Arm and Misty Fjord.
