May 23, 2015 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Windstar Cruises is offering spectacular summer savings with the addition of Three Complimentary Excursions and 50 Percent Savings on sailings in Greece and Turkey this summer.


The promotion is available on four different itineraries, including Greek Isles & Turkish Delights; Gems of the Aegean; Black Sea Tapestry; and Venetian Passageways.

Complimentary shore excursions include adventures like Wine Tasting in Varna, Bulgaria, with a four hour experience beginning in the Old Quarter of Varna. A scenic drive through the modern capital of Bulgaria takes guests to the Aladja Monastery, declared a national monument of culture. Guests spend the day tasting Bulgarian wines, guided by a professional sommelier.

In Katakalon, Greece, guests can Tour the Ancient Olympia Site and Museum for a half day experience, enjoying the impressive ruins of the Temple of Zeus, once one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

All voyages also feature Windstar’s new Private Events, a spectacular onshore experience created exclusively for Windstar guests on all sailings. These complimentary events are crafted to give guests an in-depth local experience on each cruise. For example, the Gems of the Aegean itinerary Private Event is an after-hours tour of the Celsus Library of Ephesus paired with an elegant, five course meal under the stars in the library courtyard while being serenaded by a trio from the Aegean Chamber Orchestra.
