Published on December 1, 2012 Email To Friend    Print Version

SEATTLE, USA -- Windstar Cruises is launching its collection of 2014 Caribbean and Costa Rican voyages with 2-for-1 cruise fares, plus bonus savings up to $1,000 per stateroom when booked by December 29, 2012.

Three eclectic Caribbean itineraries and two exotic Costa Rican itineraries comprise the collection, which is offered December 2013 through March 2014. It's the perfect time to explore the hidden harbours and pristine beaches of the Caribbean, with every voyage offering Windstar's signature beach barbecue, an exclusive party thrown on shore in true Windstar style.
