Windstar Cruises has announced their new Island Experiences in the Caribbean, part of the complimentary Private Event program launching around the world in 2015.
The new Island Experience is designed to treat guests to the feeling of having their “own private island” for the day, and is offered on every Windstar Caribbean itinerary.
Windstar’s inaugural Island Experience debuts on the Jan. 31 voyage of the Yachtsman’s Caribbean with special celebrity guest Olympian Mark Spitz, best known for winning seven gold medals at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Spitz will serve as host at the Island Experience on Prickly Pear Beach, a secluded and uninhabited nature refuge in the British Virgin Islands, and will conduct a series of swimming master classes for guests. Spitz is also slated to give an onboard lecture and to join guests for dinner.
All Island Experience Private Events will offer beach and sport activities such as volleyball, snorkeling, and bocce ball, as well as a full beach barbecue and a Selfie Station, where guests are encouraged to pose for selfies and tag pictures with the hashtag #WindstarCruises.
Other notable Private Events debuting around the world in 2015 include private dining under the stars at the Celsus Library of Ephesus; wine tasting and tour in Italy with traditional Sicilian lunch; tapas and folk dance lessons; and an equestrian ballet and sherry tasting in Spain. Additional celebrity hosts will be announced in the coming months.
