The cruise line’s new itineraries and destinations in the South Pacific for 2020-2021 will take place on board the 148-passenger MSY Wind Spirit. The iconic sailing ship, designed for warm trade winds, is the belle of French Polynesia cruising year-round there since 2015.
In 2020, the four-masted Wind Spirit ventures to farther shores offering multiple sail dates on 14 new itineraries with maiden (first time) port calls in Fiji, Tonga, New Caledonia, the Cook Islands, and Australia, sailing February through June 2020. Wind Spirit will return to the Islands of Tahiti and the Tuamotus in July 2020, with cruise departures available to reserve now through December 2021 for tropical adventure and romance seekers.
Wind Spirit’s new South Pacific collection of 14 unique itineraries offering 23 cruise departure dates with access to far-flung islands as undiscovered as it gets, including Niue, one of the smallest countries in the world. In addition, intrepid destination collectors will enjoy a maiden port call to the rarely visited port of Vava’u, Tonga. And thanks to her smaller size, Wind Spirit will also sail into remote Yasawa-I-Rara Island, famous for its beautiful white sandy beaches, whose land-based tourism visits have been limited by the Fiji government in the past.
Niue, Tonga and Yasawa-I-Rara are just three of the exotic new maiden ports included on Wind Spirit’s South Pacific itineraries, hand-curated and specially designed for cruisers who want to make the most of their time exploring the South Pacific.
Windstar’s 17-day Twice the Tahiti cruise, featured in the new video, provides an unusual double-circuit of ports with two visits to Moorea and two separate overnight calls in Bora Bora, the island was named #2 in the “7 Best Cruise Destination for 2019” by Cruise Critic. Twice the Tahiti offers twice the time to enjoy the culture, cuisines and beauty of the Society Islands, discovering the laidback enchantments of the lesser known islands of Huahine, Raiatea, Taha’a, and remote Fakarava and Rangiroa.
