Windstar Cruises has announced that their newest motor yacht, Star Pride, will debut a season in Southeast Asia & Arabia in the fall of 2014.
Windstar will be offering five unique itineraries calling in “small ship ports” throughout Asia, Arabia, and India. Highlights on these itineraries include Luxor, Egypt; the Suez Canal, Mumbai, India; Phuket, Thailand; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; and Hong Kong. All 5 itineraries are now on sale from Windstar.
“Small ship cruising is an incredible way to explore this part of the world. There are tremendous
experiences to be had from the ancient cliff city of Petra to the colorful Ho Chi Minh City,” said Hans Birkholz, Windstar Cruises’ chief executive officer. “This is our first journey beyond Europe, South Pacific and the Caribbean, and we are delighted to announce Star Pride’s Southeast Asia & Arabia deployment.”
Launching in May of 2014, the 9,975-ton Star Pride is the first of three new power yachts to join
Windstar’s fleet. With a guest capacity of 212, the all suite yacht will undergo several upgrades and changes in design and décor to align with Windstar’s casual contemporary style. Star Pride will showcase many signature Windstar experiences, including the line’s famous Sail Away party, yacht deck barbecue gala, and Open Bridge policy.
