Windstar Cruises Expands Late-Night Fun for Passengers

Staying out late was fun when you were a teenager, but thanks to the team at Windstar Cruises, you can stay out later on your shore excursions, too!

Enjoy extended nightlife with Windstar

An updated list of itineraries across Windstar Cruises offers late night, usually 10pm or later, returns to the ship as well as more overnights so guests can truly get to know the city in which they’re exploring. More than 45% of Windstar Cruise itineraries offer the late night or overnight options for guests.

Windstar’s unique small-ship cruising options allow them to enhance the guest experience in a number of different ways. Immersion is often important to those taking small ship cruises and Windstar’s late night offerings let guests experience the locale from sunup to sundown and even into the night.

Windstar Cruises offers a total of 299 ports in 79 countries, Signature Expeditions, and a number of fresh cultural activities, entertainment and incredible food and drink for every guest they sail with. Small ships means a wider variety of places guests can go and with only between 150-300 guests per ship usually, the journey always feels more intimate.

Windstar President John Delaney explained how the late night options came to be.

“Windstar guests want to find places off the tourist track that give them true insight into our destinations. They want stories to tell, and sometimes, the most interesting and memorable travel experiences take place after sunset,” he said. “We stay longer in port and often remain overnight so that we can provide this extra time and value to our guests; it is one way that we are truly different than an ordinary cruise.”

Windstar’s interesting and exciting travel itineraries include such exotic locales as Bora Bora, St. Petersburg, Quebec, Seville, Hong Kong and many more. Passengers can experience the best art, wine, and historic sites by day, or feel free to hike, bike or engage in active shore excursions before the evening’s entertainment on ship or in town. There are nearly 20 ports with overnight/multi-night stays on Windstar Cruises and an additional three “turn ports” with overnight stays, meaning it is where guests embark or disembark.
