In honor of Travel Advisor Appreciation Month, Windstar Cruises has created a new rewards program to thank travel advisors for their ongoing support.
With the new Windstar Cruises rewards program, advisors can earn points for learning about the Windstar Cruises brand, promoting the line’s itineraries, and making bookings for cruises throughout the month of May. These points can be exchanged for gift cards, and the top five point earners can receive a complimentary trip for two on board the newly enhanced Star Breeze.
“What you do is beyond ordinary, and we want to thank you for all that you do to recommend Windstar Cruises to your clients,” said Windstar Cruises v.p. of sales Steve Simao in press materials. “We are excited to offer a host of special rewards for travel advisors, our most valuable business partners.”

The Grand Prize for the top five advisors will be a complimentary trip for two on a Key West & Bahamas Getaway sailing from Miami aboard the Star Breeze, which is the first ship to be unveiled during Windstar’s new $250 Million Star Plus Initiative. This initiative is transforming all three of the line’s all-suite Star Class ships—Star Breeze, Star Legend, and Star Pride.
Travel advisors have until the end of June to complete these actions and until the end of July to register completed actions. Windstar will count up the points advisors have earned to see what they’ve won. Gift cards will be sent when all of the advisor’s bookings have sailed. Grand prize winners will be chosen and notified on December 2, 2019.
