Windstar Cruises Is Adding an All-Inclusive Option

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - November 16, 2021

One of the Caribbean’s leading small-ship cruise lines is going all-inclusive. 

In a nod to the surging segment in the Caribbean travel space, Windstar announced it will be adding an all-inclusive option to its voyages. 

The all-inclusive program will include unlimited wine, beer and cocktails; Wi-Fi, all gratuities; and the cruise fare. 

“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. “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.”

Windstar will be offering the option on all of its cruise ships and sailing yachts.

The plan was initially meant to be rolled out exclusively on Windstar’s new Star Plus Class Yachts, according to Prelog. 

After talking to guests and travel advisors, however, the company decided to retain the option of an a la carte fare. 

“After discussing internally, we all came to the same conclusion – why not offer both on all our yachts? We offer a choice between sailing yachts and all-suite yachts, and now a la carte or all-inclusive,” he said. “That seems to fit the Windstar brand.”
