In a perfect world of itineraries, three Windstar Cruises’ ships (which account for 50 percent of the fleet) were in Barcelona, Spain on October 27. Star Breeze, Wind Surf, and Wind Star (representing two sailing yachts and one power yacht in the fleet) happened to be in port at the same time and departed one after another on individual itineraries in the Mediterranean.
While passengers and frequent guests of the cruise line were delighted with the photo opportunity, the crews and captains also took advantage of the rare happenstance to visit each of the respective ships, as well as connect with friends and colleagues on board.
