Though travel has proven an impossible aspiration for the better part of the last year and a half, increasing vaccine distribution means that it’s finally becoming a viable reality once again. As such, many cruise lines have started ramping up their services to cure that lockdown-induced cabin fever. That said, none of them hold a candle to Windstar Cruises’ lastest venture.
Aptly named the ‘Grand European Bucket List Adventure,’ it’s an intensive 79-day voyage that takes travelers from Stockholm, Sweden to Istanbul, Turkey. Along the way, the Star Legend will make stops at some of the Old Continent’s landmark cities, including Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Hamburg, Amsterdam, Bordeaux, Athens, and many more. But here’s the thing: because the ship will only be at sea on eight of those days, there’s plenty of room in the itinerary for guests to go ashore and explore beyond the port. However, between the spa, the fitness center, the watersports platform, and various other amenities, there’s more than enough to keep you occupied whilst aboard. Limited to just 312 spots in total and priced at $40,000 per head, it’ll set sail on July 25th, 2023. Click the link below for booking.
