Windstar Cruises adds Arabian sailings to 2023/2024 itineraries

Small ship luxury line Windstar Cruises has added cruises to the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf for the
first time.
Beginning in November 2023, the 312-guest Star Legend will sail a mix of cruises in the region

- The 18-day Wonders of Arabia sails from Athens to Dubai, transiting the Suez Canal and
spending five days in Egypt and Jordan, including an overnight in Luxor to take in the
majestic Karnak and Luxor temples, followed by two days in Oman.
-  The 10-day Sparkling Sands &amp; Cities of the Persian Gulf will sail on 11 dates from Dubai to
Muscat, Oman (and the reverse). Highlights are overnights in Doha and Abu Dhabi; a late
night in Ras Al-Khaimah; stops in quieter cities like Fujairah or Khasab; as well as time on Sir
Bani Yas, an island known for its pristine nature and wildlife conservation.
- The 9-day Arabian Nights & Egyptian Days will sail on two dates (one in each direction) from
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to Aqaba, Jordan – and the reverse. Highlights include an overnight in
Sharm el-Sheikh and in Safaga with the opportunity to visit Luxor, and the chance to soak in
the turquoise waters of the resort ports of Ain Sokhna and Hurghada.
- There is only one Red Sea Revelries via the Suez Canal, a 12-day voyage from Jeddah, Saudi
Arabia, to Athens. Highlights include an overnight in Luxor; a later night in Ain Sokhna, Egypt;
a transit through the Suez Canal; and a day in Heraklion, Crete.

Windstar Cruises President Christopher Prelog said: “With impressive UNESCO sights, beautiful
beaches and wildlife, top-rated golf courses, amazing snorkeling and diving, and of course, great
shopping, Windstar is excited to introduce our guests to the Red Sea and Persian Gulf with new
itineraries in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Qatar.”
