Boutique firm Windstar Cruises is relaunching its Caribbean operations, the company said this week.
The company will be resuming cruises with a vaccination requirement for all guests.
“Looking at the science behind the virus, we see consistent recommendations for wearing masks, social distancing, testing, and enhanced cleaning. In response, Windstar developed a new Beyond Ordinary Care program, which is a multi-layered strategy with key hospital-grade elements: HEPA filters and UV-C germicidal irradiation to filter and disinfect the air, plus backpack sprayers to sanitize all surfaces throughout our yachts,” said Andrew Todd, CEO of Windstar and parent company Xanterra Travel Collection.
The company’s first Caribbean cruise is slated to relaunch on June 19 on its Star Breeze ship, with its next Caribbean cruise Nov. 3 on the Star Pride cruise ship.
While many cruise lines have begun launching homeport operations within the Caribbean, such as Crystal Cruises in Nassau, Windstar has not yet revealed where the Caribbean cruises will homeport.
