Planning your Windstar cruise
Windstar Cruises, http://www.windstarcruises.com, (888) 772-9208, has two masted ships — Wind Star and Wind Spirit — on the seven-day Greek Isles & Turkish Delights itinerary. There are weekly departures on Saturdays between May and October in both directions, one starting in Istanbul, the other in Athens. Peak seasons are May and September and October. Fares from $2,799 a person, depending on departure date. Includes two complimentary hotel nights in Istanbul or Athens. Windstar Cruises offers frequent two-for-one discounts throughout the season. Land excursions and airfare are not included. A $12 fee per person is added to your bill to cover tips for the room and food service staff. Tips for bartenders are included in the drink charge. Take note: The ships do not have elevators and are not suitable for disabled travelers. Few children travel the route; there are no arrangements for adult supervision, and there are few activities that would be appealing to youngsters.
