Space is filling up fast on Windstar Cruises’ final sailings aboard the 148-passenger msy Wind Star in Tahiti and the Marquesas this fall. The company’s flagship motor sailing yacht will redeploy to Costa Rica in January.

“Anyone who has been dreaming of a luxurious and romantic vacation in the beautiful Society Islands should take advantage of our last few sailings offered at Sail and Save rates,” says Tom Russell, vice president of marketing and sales for Windstar Cruises. “Every day is a new adventure as the ship slips into some of the most striking harbors in the world, with a full range of recreational and comfort amenities on board and a staff that looks after every need.”

Select sailings of 7- to 14-days offer prices as low as $2,895 per person based on double occupancy, and include air from 78 North American gateway cities. Guests wishing to extend their adventure by booking consecutive sailings in September will enjoy substantial savings with rates starting at just $795 per person for the second week.

Seven-day voyages are available on September 3 and 10; November 19 and 26; and December 10. A 14-day voyage deep into the South Pacific to the remote and fascinating Marquesas Islands will depart on September 17. The final two Tahiti sailings of the year are holiday cruises departing from Papeete on December 17 (for 11 days) and December 28 (for 10 days).

Ideal for Tahiti’s warm, tropical waters, the ship’s aft water sports platform lowers into the water when the ship is at anchor opening up a floating dock for access to complimentary water sports equipment. Guests may swim off the platform, go kayaking, wind surfing, sailing and water skiing, or hop on the banana boat with new friends for an exciting ride. Snorkeling equipment is complimentary and may be checked out for the week. Diving excursions are available for both novice and experienced divers and are led by PADI-certified dive masters.

Sailings depart roundtrip on Fridays from Tahiti’s capital, Papeete. Port calls include Raiatea, an important island historically that has been called the birthplace of the Polynesian culture by archaeologists; Huahine, with her fragrant vanilla plantations, welcoming people and pristine beaches; and extended calls at Bora Bora with a picture-perfect lagoon studded with “motu” islands under the watchful shadows of Mt. Otemanu, and lovely Moorea for swimming, hiking and adventures like snorkeling, scuba-diving and parasailing. Voyages conclude in Papeete, where an international airport whisks guests away.

HOLIDAYS, TAHITIAN-STYLE

Holiday cruises of 10 and 11 days depart December 10 and 17 and visit the islands of Tahiti as well as the magnificent atoll of Rangiroa, whose narrow coral islands enclose the largest natural lagoon in the world. Chefs prepare special holiday menus with traditional fare, such as roasted turkey with chestnut dressing, rack of lamb and plum pudding, as well as perennial favorites such as surf and turf, caviar and baked Alaska.

After dinner, the benefits of cruising during the holiday season become clear: no dishes, no cleanup, just more time to spend relaxing and celebrating with travel companions. Holiday festivities onboard blend traditional decorations, such as beautifully decorated Christmas trees in the lounge and wreaths on stateroom doors, with cultural activities. Catch a glimpse of another culture as the talented crew performs native and local carols at a festive holiday show.

Rates, including air from 78 North American gateway cities, begin at $4,795 per person, double occupancy.

LAST CHANCE FOR EXOTIC MARQUESAS

The Marquesas cruise on September 17th is the last opportunity of the year to visit some of the most remote and fascinating islands of Polynesia aboard the Wind Star. Departing from Papeete, the ship will visit the Marquesan islands of Fatu Hiva, Hiva Oa, Ua Pou, and Nuku Hiva, travel to Rangiroa in Tuamotu, and then on to Tahiti’s Bora Bora and Moorea before returning to Papeete. Six full days are spent at sea during the voyage for guests to enjoy the casual comforts and romance of their beautifully appointed motor sailing yacht.

Windstar’s 2004 “Sail & Save” rates include air from 78 North American gateways and begin at just $5,595 per person, double occupancy.
