SUPPLIER: Windstar Cruises

Windstar Cruises launches a new Onboard Cruise Consultant (OCC) program to help guests on cruise vacations plan future cruise experiences and drive recognition and benefits supporting travel professionals. The first OCC will embark on Star Legend on its February 3 itinerary from Bangkok to Hong Kong.

Within the next few months, three more OCC’s will join Star Breeze, Star Pride, and Wind Surf. These are the largest of Windstar’s intimate, yacht-like fleet. The remaining two ships (both with just 148 guests each) will be evaluated for the program in the near future.

The program is designed to help guests consider their next Windstar cruise and, when they book onboard, they receive extra value.

Benefits of booking onboard with the OCC are:

• Reduced Deposit – The special reduced deposit is a real value and it is fully refundable based on the program’s guidelines. Reduced deposits start at just $200 per booking compared to the normal deposit of 15% of cruise fare.
• 5% Savings – Onboard/Welcome Home – Guests who have sailed are eligible for the 5% Onboard/Welcome Home new booking savings. This provides 5% off the cruise fare.
• 5% Savings – Yacht Club Members – Current guests are automatically enrolled in Windstar Cruises’ “Yacht Club Member” program. Members are eligible for 5% off the cruise fare after promotional adjustments.
