For their last season sailing under the Seabourn banner, Seabourn Spirit and Seabourn Legend are returning to the Caribbean where they first set sail 20-plus years ago. The two vessels will be transferred to the Windstar Cruises fleet in Europe in spring 2015. Seabourn Pride was handed over to Windstar in April 2014.
The addition of the three all-suite, 208-passenger ships from Seabourn will double the size of Windstar’s fleet and expand its product mix to include ships that operate strictly by motor.
From November into March 2015, Spirit and Legend will sail seven- and 14-day cruises roundtrip Barbados, roundtrip St. Thomas and between Aruba and St. Maarten, with enough variety in itinerary to make back-to-back bookings tempting. Ports of call are generally Caribbean destinations that are off the beaten path. Signature Seabourn experiences, such as the Caviar in the Surf beach party, enrich the guest experience with exclusive touches — champagne and caviar served by white-gloved staff, for example.
“Seabourn Spirit and Seabourn Legend have delivered countless unforgettable memories and special Seabourn moments over the years,” says Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. “We invite our guests to celebrate these fine ships and come back one more time to where it all began in the Caribbean.”
