Star Pride to cruise Southeast Asia and Arabia in 2014-15

Windstar Cruises is to make its debut debut in Southeast Asia and Arabia in 2014 on the 212-passenger power yacht, Star Pride, which it is acquiring from Seabourn.

The new voyages feature five unique itineraries exclusive to the all-suite yacht, highlighting small ship ports throughout Asia, Arabia, and India. The inaugural Southeast Asia and Arabia season will set sail on 30 October, 2014.

“Small ship cruising is an incredible way to explore this part of the world. There are tremendous experiences to be had from the ancient cliff city of Petra to the colorful Ho Chi Minh City,” said Hans Birkholz, Windstar Cruises’ chief executive officer.

“This is our first journey beyond Europe, South Pacific and the Caribbean, and we are delighted to announce Star Pride’s Southeast Asia and Arabia deployment.”
