Grand Mediterranean - Wind Surf - Windstar Cruises

Any Cruise, Anywhere, Any Time

GRAND MEDITERRANEAN

aboard Wind Surf

This 51-day day voyage spanning the length of the Mediterranean is breathtaking in its scope, offering a once in a lifetime opportunity to sail to the most exciting destinations in this region.

Depart from Lisbon and sail down the Atlantic side of the Iberian Peninsula where you’ll learn the long history of sherry aging and sample dry, bready “fino” and dark, nutty “oloroso” sherries in the countryside outside Cadiz, Spain.

Admire colourful mosaics and detailed stone latticework as you learn about kings and caliphs tied to the Moorish palace of the Alhambra above the port city of Almeria. Wander a medieval castle in Catania and learn how geology and nearby Mount Etna carried this coastal fortification nearly a mile inland. Listen to a private concert and attend an exclusive dinner among the towering pillars of the Celsus Library in the ruins of Ephesus, Turkey in our complimentary Destination Discovery Event.

Wander the ancient baths, markets and forum at the excavated archaeological site of Pompeii. Stroll between century-old olive trees and vineyards surrounding an old French farmhouse outside Sanary-sur-Mer, then sample wines and olive oils in the intimate company of winery staff.

Your epic odyssey ultimately ends in the Catalonian capital of Barcelona, where you can board a cable car bound for Montjuïc Castle or wind your way along Las Ramblas, an iconic, pedestrian mall lined with tapas bars, small shops and kiosk vendors. It’s an ideal location to enjoy a local Grenache wine and reflect on your epic Mediterranean journey.

Complimentary Discovery Event

Kusadasi: Evening in Ephesus

No one who has seen the magnificent Celsus Library of Ephesus will ever forget it. As a Windstar guest, enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience during this exclusive Evening in Ephesus.
Walk the Marble Road to the Library that housed more than 12,000 scrolls nearly two millennia ago. A 5-course, white-glove-service dinner will be served in the courtyard in front of the Library. The spectacularly illuminated façade allows you to examine the statues in their niches and the elegant details of the frames. Dinner under the stars will be accompanied by a trio from the Aegean Chamber Orchestra.
Just as you’d expect. No crowds. No rush. Delight in every detail.

Please note: This Destination Discovery Event has been scheduled to allow you to book and experience other shore excursions during the day and you will not miss anything.
