Windstar offers 50% savings, free tours with Greece/Turkey cruises

Windstar offers 50% savings, free tours with Greece/Turkey cruises
Windstar Cruises is offering three free excursions and 50% savings on Greece and Turkey cruises this summer.

The promotion is available with four itineraries, including 'Greek Isles & Turkish Delights,' 'Gems of the Aegean,' 'Black Sea Tapestry' and 'Venetian Passageways.'

The free excursions include adventures like wine tasting in Varna, Bulgaria, a four hour experience beginning in the Old Quarter. A scenic drive through the modern capital of Bulgaria takes participants to the Aladja Monastery, a national monument of culture. Participants spend the day tasting Bulgarian wines, guided by a professional sommelier.

From Katakalon, Greece, cruisers can tour the ancient Olympia site and museum for a half-day experience that includes the ruins of the Temple of Zeus, once one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

All voyages also feature Windstar’s new Private Events, special onshore experiences created exclusively for Windstar.

For example, the 'Gems of the Aegean' itinerary's Private Event is an after-hours tour of Ephesus paired with an elegant, five course meal under the stars in Celsus Library courtyard serenaded by a trio from the Aegean Chamber Orchestra.
