Windstar Cruises is expanding its itineraries to visit new destinations in 2020 and 2021. The season will feature cruises to Australia and New Zealand, South Pacific islands, Western Caribbean, Central America and expanded Mediterranean sailings to Israel and Egypt. 

The small-ship cruise line has been gradually increasing its destinations in recent years. In 2018, it started visiting Alaska, Canada, New England in the US, the Philippines, China, Vietnam, Thailand and Japan, and increased its sailings in Northern Europe to Norway, the UK and Greenland. This year has also seen Windstar sailing to more ports in Japan, as well as introducing cruises to Indonesia, the west coast of the US and Mexico.

Through Windstar’s expanded destination list, passengers can visit 330 ports worldwide and experience 2,500 shore excursions.

“It’s been fun work for our talented team adding more than 200 new ports of call in the last couple of years,” said John Delaney, president of Windstar. “Being a leader in destination delivery, we know that the ports we visit and how we visit them makes all the difference. 

“We’re up to 330 ports and 2,500 shore excursions and place a monumental effort into designing cruises with more time in port and more overnights. Offering longer cruises on smaller ships, we take an uncommon approach to travel, allowing guests to discover places on a more personal level, in an authentic and culturally immersive way.”
