Windstar Cruises is about to reveal the clues to a massive treasure hunt, running Sept. 10-Oct. 1. Someone will win a cruise for two but there is another massive prize that the winner is tasked with finding while sailing to a fabled port.

The contest is part of a celebration to commemorate the return of cruising. More than half of Windstar’s fleet is now sailing with vaccinated passengers and crew.

'Before our yachts returned to operation, we spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to inspire wanderlust for booking a future cruise vacation, to give people something to look forward to and have a bit of fun in the process, so we created this visual treasure hunt as a way to show what makes Windstar such a unique cruise experience,' said Betsy O’Rourke, chief marketing officer for Xanterra Travel Collection, Windstar’s parent company. experiences and inspires a future trip.'

Video clues

To find the location of the hidden treasure, players must go online and watch 11 short videos hosted on Windstar’s social channels and on the sweepstakes landing page at WindstarCruises.com. Each video contains a number, letter or symbol that, strung together, form a Google Plus code revealing the destination with the treasure. Once players crack the code, they can earn up to $200 shipboard credit and are entered to win a cruise.

The winner will then embark on a mega treasure hunt with a partner of their choosing to retrieve the extraordinary grand prize.
