Windstar extends suspension
Windstar Star Legend & Wind Star

Windstar Suspension update: December 11, 2020

We are now canceling all departures in March and April and into May 2021 depending on itinerary. Secondly, we are changing deployment for Star Breeze and canceling our cruises in and out of U.S. ports in 2021. Under the CDC conditional sail order expected to remain in effect through the 2021 summer season, no cruises visiting U.S. ports may be longer than seven days. Since most of our itineraries are longer, changes are necessary. Instead of sailing up the West Coast to Alaska, Star Breeze will sail in the Caribbean when she begins cruising again in May 2021 and then transition to Tahiti in the fall.


Windstar expects to begin sailing on these dates:

  1. Star Legend – May 1, 2021 –Greece, Israel, Egypt
  2. Wind Spirit – May 6, 2021 – Tahiti
  3. Wind Surf – May 9, 2021 – Med
  4. Star Breeze – May 15, 2021 – Caribbean
  5. Wind Star – May 22, 2021 – Greek Isles
  6. Star Pride – July 14, 2021 – Northern Europe

In Connection With This Cancelation, Windstar is offering:

  • Future Cruise Credit (FCC) valued at 125% of monies paid to Windstar Cruises. Clients have two options.
    • Option 1: Book another Windstar Cruise. Guests have 24 months from the issue date of the FCC to sail with their FCC.  Given the volume of cancellations, allow up to four weeks to receive an FCC certificate.
    • Option 2: Receive a Cash Refund. Should guests wish to convert their canceled voyage FCC into a cash refund, they may do so once the FCC certificate is received. Contact Windstar to request this option after receiving an FCC certificate. Windstar will deactivate the FCC valued at 125% and process the refund to the original form(s) of payment at 100% of the monies paid to Windstar Cruises. guests have 24 months from the issue date of the FCC to request the refund.
