   December 15, 2020 ,   Cruise Industry

Windstar has made the decision to postpone all voyages (fleetwide) until May 2021, including the debut of its reconstructed 312-passenger superyacht Star Breeze.

With the latest shift in operations, including the cancellation of Windstar’s 2021 USA, Alaska, Mexico ports), Star Breeze will now restart operations on May 15, 2021, with a new Caribbean itinerary departing from Marigot (St Martin Island).

A total of 3 departures of the new "Beach Fun and Sun - A Remote Caribbean Getaway" itinerary will be more adventure-focused and themed on watersports activities. Call ports include Norman Island BVI, 2 days stay at Prickly Pear Island (uninhabited) and Soper’s Hole (Tortola Island).

In the Caribbean, Star Breeze will be sailing on various itineraries through August 14, 2021, when it is heading to Colombia and Panama Canal (transit) prior to continuing to Tahiti on a Transpacific relocation voyage. Between September 19-March 2022, the ship sails on a total of seven (10- and 11-day) voyages.

The recently transformed and refurbished cruise ship Star Legend is expected to become the first Windstar yacht to return to service, beginning on May 1 in Piraeus-Athens on the new 10-day "Greece, Israel and Egypt: Footsteps of Faith in the Holy Lands" voyage.
