Mix n’ Match your way to a bigger sale

Cruising through Europe isn’t just about the view. And that’s not what your clients want anyway.

To sell a European Cruise you need to shake it up, mix n’ match and offer them something that they can’t get anywhere else.

 

Mix it up with a private event in Tarragona, Spain

Giants, Big-Heads & Human Towers? Sounds like our kind of fun!

Imagine walking into a private event at the spectacular Roman Amphitheater of Tarragona, built in the first century A.D.

Sangria in one hand and Catalan tapas in the other, guests are wowed by the incredible tower of people standing one on top of the other, often ranging a story or more high. Known as a castell, this 18th century tradition is now on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity List.

The entertainment continues with a performance from outlandish Catalan Giants and Big-Heads. Not sure what we mean? Imagine larger than life papier-maché figures and festival performers with huge heads that are worn on the head and shoulders of a normal sized person.

Windstar’s Giants, Big-Heads & Human Towers private event is a one-of-a-kind experience is offered on their 8-day Treasures of Southern Spain & Morocco itinerary.

Mix it up with a tour of the Magnificent Caves Bergtatt

The day begins with a scenic drive north to the marble caves of Bergtatt. Upon arrival, you take a boat deep into the glistening caves, traversing a mystical underground lake aboard a comfortable barge.

Sound scary? Not to worry, these caves navigated under the light from elegant chandeliers installed within the caverns that reflect on the crystal clear water to illuminate the journey.

After leaving the boats and entering into the main hall, you enjoy a traditional Norwegian fare like lefse, a soft Norwegian flatbread made with potatoes, flour, butter, and milk, and drink sparkling wine while being entertained by local singers and dancers.


Match it with an 11-day Lands of the Midnight Sun Cruise

They say that the best things come in small packages. And boy, does this package pack a punch.

The Molde: The Magnificent Caves Bergtatt private event is exclusively available on Windstar’s 11-day Lands of the Midnight Sun itinerary aboard the Star Legend. 

Cruise beneath the Midnight Sun to sparkling Norwegian fjords, steaming Icelandic geysers, ancient Scottish standing stones, and the bucolic Faroe Islands. Hear the echoes of Old Norse tongues, see lands once lauded in ancient Viking sagas, and witness sights that will stir your soul. As a guest on Star Legend, you experience it all from a uniquely thrilling perspective.

Mix it up with a an Evening in Ephesus

No one who has seen the magnificent Celsus Library of Ephesus will ever forget it. Enjoy a private dining experience in the Library of Ephesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

You will walk the Marble Road to the Library that housed more than 12,000 scrolls nearly two millennia ago. Your five-course, white-glove-service dinner will be in the courtyard in front of the Library. The spectacularly illuminated façade allows you to examine the statues in their niches and the elegant details of the frames. Dinner under the stars will be accompanied by a trio from the Aegean Chamber Orchestra.

Just as you’d expect. No crowds. No rush. Delight in every detail.
