Small ship cruise line Windstar Cruises has welcomed back its 342-guest flagship Wind Surf to the sea. The largest sailing ship in the world departed from Barcelona on Aug. 8, on an eight-day voyage to Lisbon, stopping at ports including Palma de Mallorca, Cartagena, Almería, Málaga, Gibraltar, and Cadiz.
Four of the line’s six yachts are now back in the water cruising.
Windstar is returning to operations in a phased manner, with its fleet of six yachts debuting on various dates through November, while requiring vaccines of all passengers amongst a host of health and safety precautions including testing, social distancing, masks, and high-tech air filtration. On June 19, Windstar’s Wind Star yacht resumed revenue operations in Greece, and on July 10, Windstar’s Star Breeze began sailing in the Caribbean. On July 15, Wind Spirit resumed operations in Tahiti. All yachts are sailing with vaccinated guests and crew. .
