Windstar Cruises' Star Breeze will explore Southeast Alaska in 2021, fresh off a renovation that's part of the company's $250 million Star Plus Initiative.
Alaskan Splendors, Alaskan Exploration & Denali Cruise Tour, Alaska Glaciers & Prince William Sound and Scenic Alaska itineraries are among the 21 departures currently scheduled between June 3 and Sept. 1, 2021.
The 312-passenger Star Breeze, which is undergoing updates in Italy, will feature a new category of suites, all-new guestroom bathrooms, a new spa and two new dining venues. The ship's pool and fitness facilities will also be revamped.
Through Windstar's Travel Assurance Booking Policy, travelers can cancel a cruise up to 15 days before departure and receive a 100-percent future cruise credit based on money paid on the booking. The credit may be used on all sailings through Dec. 31, 2021.
Windstar is also updating its health, safety and sanitation protocols in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Future cruises will include expanded outdoor dining, enhanced health screenings and additional medical staffers on board.
