   January 6, 2021 ,   Cruise Industry

The top-luxury travel company Windstar Cruises released its wave season promo offer on January 5, 2021, and encourages future customers to take advantage of the early-booking discounts.

The "Sail Small, Live Large With Big Perks" cruise promotion lets vacationers choose from complimentary perks and a reduced deposit of just 5%. The company is adding in bonus commissions and extending its groups' promotion and "Sell 3, Sail Free" offer.

Running through February 28, 2021, the “Pick Your Perk” savings options feature:

  • up to US$1,000 shipboard credit per stateroom or
  • 1-night hotel pre-/post-cruise on Europe cruises or
  • premium beverage package (beer, wine, spirits, soda) or
  • free Wi-Fi.

Passengers may pick one complimentary perk which varies depending on the length of the cruise and stateroom category. Along with the offer, deposits were reduced from 15% to 5% of cruise fare. The line’s updated Travel Assurance Booking Policy allows cancellations up to 48 hours before departure on 2021 sailings.

As part of the wave season offer, travel advisors can pick their perk on each confirmed booking - a US$50 bonus commission payable with the regular commission or a US$50 gift card payable at final payment.

It increases to US$100 per booking for new Windstar guests. An extension of a running group promotion lets advisors earn Tour Conductor credits at a reduced rate of 1:7 (normally 1:9) on Star Advantage Group dates.

The Sell Three, Sail Free promo gifts a free voyage to advisors when they sell 3 qualifying cruises in 2021. Qualifying sailings have to be booked by February 28 and the advisor’s free trip may be any of 8 days or fewer and has to be taken by March 31, 2022.
