Windstar Cruises announced its ships will sail seven new itineraries in Europe next year. The 2019 season will see six new Mediterranean cruises from Windstar and one new northern Europe itinerary.
Wind Surf will travel three of the new Mediterranean cruises. The Mediterranean Island Hopping Adventures package will take passengers from Barcelona to Athens on a 10-day trip. The eight-day Antiquities of the Adriatic & Greece will travel from Athens to Venice.
The third new trip combines these two and more for a 51-day voyage. Star Collector: Grand Mediterranean will travel from Barcelona, around Italy, across the Adriatic, through the Greek Isles and reach the western coast of Turkey before turning back.
The small Star Pride will sail two of the other new itineraries. Along the 10-day Corinth Canal & Western Epicenters of the Ancient World, traveling to Athens and Rome, passengers will see ancient ruins and taste modern cuisine. The Secrets of Croatia & Greece via the Corinth Canal will take guests on an eight-day journey from Venice to Athens, passing through Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro. Both cruise packages will sail the Corinth Canal.
The last new Mediterranean cruise, Artists & Idols of Iberia, will be aboard Star Breeze. The 10-day trip will explore Portugal, Morocco, Gibraltar and Spain, with an overnight in Seville.
The one new northern Europe package sails along the coast of western Europe. Tapestries, Towers & Tarte Normande: Europe’s Atlantic Edge, an eight-day cruise aboard Star Breeze, takes passengers from Lisbon to Amsterdam or Portsmouth to Lisbon.
