Windstar Cruises Adds All-Inclusive Pricing for All Cruises
Luxury Cruise Guide
16 November, 2021
Windstar Cruises is changing the way it sells cruises by giving cruisers an option of an all-inclusive price for all. Previously the small ship line had a base cruise fare, with an option to add things like alcohol, gratuities, and other onboard services on top.
“In an effort to be more in line with other luxury offerings in the cruise industry, particularly with the rollout of our newly transformed all-suite Star Plus Class yachts, we’re now giving the option of an all-inclusive price for all of our sailings,” said Windstar President Christopher Prelog in a press note. “We didn’t want to take away the à la carte option from guests who enjoy going that way. We want our guests to have the choice based on their preference, what they need on board, and their general vacation philosophy.”
The all-inclusive prices are now listed on Windstar’s website and all sales materials, along with the base cruise fares, which are listed per person in U.S. dollars based on double occupancy. For Windstar, all-inclusive means unlimited wine, beer, and cocktails; Wi-Fi; all gratuities; as well as the cruise fare. The new fare is available for the Wind Class yachts as well.
Windstar’s “Beyond Ordinary Care” health and safety plan requires guests and crew to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Beginning January 1, the line’s policies include a free COVID-19 antigen test at the pier for embarking guests. To ease travel back home at the end of the cruise, guests may also choose to purchase antigen ($69) or PCR tests ($135) in advance of their cruise or on board to take prior to departure from the yacht to comply with CDC policies currently requiring negative tests prior to flying into the United States. Any additional testing required by specific ports during the cruise may be purchased on board for guests’ convenience.Find Great Cruise Deals
