Supplier: Windstar Cruises
With the highly anticipated return of Windstar Cruises to the scenic beauty of Alaska in May 2018 (after a hiatus of more than 20 years from sailing in the region) comes an agenda of larger-than-life adventures awaiting those boarding the 212-guest Star Legend.
The four new cruise tours will let visitors spend up to 20 days exploring by land and sea, while the newly announced Signature Expeditions will bring them even closer to the action with experiences like kayaking to explore glaciers with experienced glaciologists and marine biologists guiding the way.
The following cruise tours are now open for booking:
Denali & Alaskan Wilderness Cruise Tour – Fairbanks to Vancouver (18 days)
This tour begins near the highest point in North America among the breathtaking beauty of pristine Denali National Park and then sets sail through the ice floes and turquoise-tinged glaciers of the stunning Alaskan coastline.
Alaskan Explorations & Denali Cruise Tour – Vancouver to Fairbanks (15 or 16 days)
Adventurers can experience a combination of British Columbia’s grandeur and Alaska’s small community seclusion, sailing north along Canada’s Inside Passage to the Eastern Alaskan Coast and remote interior, while catching glimpses of scenic glaciers and fjords, as the compact size of Windstar’s vessels grants unsurpassed access and perspectives.
Pacific Crossing & Denali Cruise Tour – Tokyo (Yokohama) to Fairbanks (17 days)
Between the Far East and America’s furthest west and from Japan’s sleek and trendy urban wonders to Alaska’s rustic outposts, this 17-day tour is abundant in both the exotic and bucolic, spending four days touring Alaska by land and 13 days cruising the North Pacific.
Denali & Aleutians Cruise Tour – Fairbanks to Tokyo (20 days)
Legendary Denali National Park and the best of the Far East are within reach during this epic three-week cruise tour that ranges from the rustic and remote Alaskan interior to Tokyo’s vibrant and trendy shopping districts. Cruisers can swig amber ales shoulder to shoulder with the rugged Alaskan fisherman or slurp steaming Udon noodles next to Sapporo-sipping salarymen.
