Supplier: Windstar Cruises
Cruise guests on Windstar’s 51-day Grand Mediterranean adventure will embark the 310-guest MSY Wind Surf on July 7, 2019, in Europe’s Westernmost port of Lisbon, Portugal, prepared for an epic adventure visiting the best ports in central Europe sailing across the culturally-rich Mediterranean, one of the world’s most beautiful seas. An equal match, the majestic Wind Surf is the world’s largest sailing ship at 14,745 gross tons, 617 feet in length with 26,881 square feet of crisp new sails soaring 220 feet skyward.
The ship will traverse the vast inland ocean during the cruise high-season on a comprehensive Mediterranean voyage. The cruise will call at popular ports and hidden harbors in Portugal, Spain, Gibraltar, Malta, and Italy, sailing to the farther reaches of Croatia, Montenegro, Greece and Turkey, and then doubling back for more cultural immersion and travel delights in Monaco and France before landing in Barcelona on August 27, 2018; all told, eight weeks of once-in-a-lifetime discovery spanning nearly 9,500 nautical miles.
Travellers aboard Wind Surf will be immersed in the romance of travel by sea and sail, cruising into major cosmopolitan cities such as Rome and Athens, and gliding into impossibly quaint harbors to mirror the towering town spires of coastal gems like Sanary-sur-Mer, France, and Rovinj, Croatia. Windstar’s curated collection of shore excursions provides cruisers with hundreds of choices that span the spectrum from docent-led tours to Picasso’s Museum in Málaga to ocean kayaking in Palma de Mallorca or pesto-making lessons in Portofino.
