Windstar Heads North for a New Alaskan Cruise

For adventure-seekers and cruise enthusiasts alike, nothing beats an Alaskan cruise. A place truly wild in every sense of the word, Alaska offers a glimpse at what life was like long before roads, skyscrapers and cell phones. The frigid north is renowned for its beauty and thrilling expeditions which test your mettle as an intrepid soul.

Windstar Cruises, a Seattle-based cruise ship line, is bringing their ship Star Legend back to Alaska this summer for a journey guests aren’t likely to forget. The ship holds just 212 passengers and each room is a suite for the ultimate luxury cruise experience.
