Guests will save an estimated $35 per person, per day when booking the “All-In Package” versus separately paying for the various services and amenities, Windstar said. Unbundled, these additional amenities total approximately $124 per guest, per day including the beverage package, which is typically priced at $59 per guest, per day. 

Unlimited Wi-Fi can allow guests to keep in touch with loved ones and share their vacation escapades while globe-trotting through Windstar’s signature small ports of call. The laundry service allows guests to streamline packing, save on luggage expenses, and can be beneficial for guests sailing on water and beach-focused itineraries, such as Tahiti or Costa Rica, as well as for guests who participate in explorations off the ship such as hiking, bike-riding, kayaking, and zip-lining.

The Captain’s Exclusive Beverage Package is the boutique line’s beverage package that includes all domestic and imported beer and 33 varieties of wine or sparkling wine by the glass, plus cordials, liqueurs, aperitifs, cocktails and mini-bar items. Cocktails are based on house and select brands, and guests may choose from more than 40 liquors such as Grey Goose, Hendricks, Johnny Walker Black, Ketel One, Glenfiddich, Hennessy, and more (brands rotate and are subject to availability.)

For two guests purchasing the “All-In Package” and sharing a suite or stateroom, the total savings amounts to $240 per guest or $480 total per couple, based on a seven-day cruise, Windstar said. Additionally, advance purchase of the package earns commission for travel advisors booking travel for cruise guests.
