A Touch of Tapas & a Pint of Guinness

8 Days | Lisbon to Dublin | June 12, 2019

Itinerary: Lisbon • Porto • El Ferrol • Gijon • Bilbao • Isles of Scilly • Waterford • Dublin

n some voyages there are as many memorable moments from small things as large, and this is one of those. Take yellow tram #28 to Lisbon’s Alfama and Baixa past old tiled buildings and palatial houses. Discover Pastéis de Nata (custard tarts) in Porto … and wish you hadn’t. Snack on cider and cheese in Gijon’s peaceful Jardines de Begona. Watch as Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim seems to move as it captures reflections of the river. Realize as you’re looking at the Book of Kells in Dublin’s Trinity College Library that Oscar Wilde and Samuel Becket may have stood right here. For every major attraction (and there are many), a dozen other intriguing stories beg to be heard.

Alaskan Explorations & Denali Cruise Tour

15 Days | Vancouver to Fairbanks | August 9, 2019

Itinerary: Vancouver • Canadian Inside Passage • Ketchikan • Misty Fjords • Wrangell • Sitka • Tracy Arm / Endicott Arm • Haines • Juneau • Kenai Fjords National Park • Seward (Anchorage) • Talkeetna • Denali • Fairbanks

Awaken and inspire your sense of adventure as you sail north through Canada’s Inside Passage to Alaska along the same waterway frequented by prospectors and fortune-seekers more than a century ago. Your first stop is Ketchikan, a former last-stop mining supply outpost to Skagway-bound adventurers. Wander among the world’s largest totem pole collection and ponder contemporary dilemmas, like whether you want your Chinook salmon served sizzling on an aromatic cedar plank or cured next to an open alder wood fire. Whatever you decide, pair it with a side of sourdough bread and raise a glass of microbrew to the memory of the Klondike stampede. Admire the glaciated slopes and ice floes of Alaska’s Misty Fjords, Tracy and Endicott Arms and Kenai Fjords, but keep a weather eye on the horizon for the telltale spray and black fins of orca pods. Disembark in Seward and ride inland to Fairbanks and scenic Denali National Park. Caribou, foxes and Dall sheep observations are nearly certain, but even the locals grow excited about grizzly and wolf pack sightings. A detailed float along the Chena River provides additional opportunities for ursine encounters prior to your transfer to Fairbanks Airport and your reentry into the predictabilities of a less-adventurous modern civilization.

Activities & Entertainment

A day on board your Windstar yacht is a day of choices, all of them good. Perhaps you’ll begin with a relaxing massage in WindSpa. Or maybe an invigorating workout in the Fitness Center. Even better, why not both? After a sumptuous lunch in Veranda, make a splash from the Watersports Platform off the yacht’s stern. Everything you can think of for fun in the water is there — swimming, kayaking, sail-boarding, even water skiing. And it’s all complimentary, of course. Sun yourself on deck, take a dip in the whirlpool, then catch up on email or grab a DVD for your stateroom or suite in the Library. After dinner, try your luck in the Casino and dance to live music in the Lounge. This is your yacht, so of course you’re welcome on the Bridge, where the Captain and officers are delighted to share charts, routes, and vistas with you.

As you prepare for another amazing Windstar day, enjoy a nightcap anywhere you like — on deck, in the Lounge, or why not let us bring it to your suite or stateroom? Your day ends just as it began, blissfully.
