Windstar cuts rates up to 77%, adds bikes on board

Windstar Cruises is promoting savings of up to 77% in a two-week sale on close-in departures in Europe.

For example, seven-day cruises on Wind Spirit between Le Havre and Oslo on July 9 and Aug. 6 are priced starting at $1,199 per person in a Category B stateroom, a 77% discount.

Savings are available on an ample range of other dates and itineraries in July, August and September.

In other news, Windstar added a bicycle program that features 7000 series, aluminum frame Dragon Marine Folding Bikes.

Wind Surf has eight bikes and Wind Spirit and Wind Star each have four bikes. The bikes are available for $39 for a half-day rental and $59 for a full day. Bike helmets, locks and chains are provided.

The rentals are available in most ports and can be reserved with Windstar’s destination manager aboard each yacht.
