Top 4 Celebration Moments

Emily Marsh

Life is full of moments worth celebrating and some moments need to be celebrated in style.

Here are 4 ways to make those moments unforgettable.

 

Birthday

Birthdays are the most universal celebration moment of all – everyone has them and they come every year. But that’s the thing – they aren’t one of a kind. So are you going to make this one unforgettable?

Blowing out the candles on your triple-layer chocolate and burnt caramel mousse cake in Restaurant & Café Gouverneur de Rouville in Curaçao is a pretty good start.

Located in the historic section of Willemstad overlooking the harbor, this beautifully restored 18th century historic building boasts old world charm, spectacular views, and an Antillean décor that will have you ready for an evening of delights.

This exception event is only avaliable on Windstar’s 7-day Secrets of the Southern Caribbean cruise.

Discover the “deep south” of the Caribbean, beyond the mainstream cruises. The Dutch ABC islands acclaimed for their crystalline waters and world-class beaches, diving, and snorkeling. Seldom-visited mainland ports with a lively Caribbean vibe. And towns founded on Spanish gold that retain their colonial charm all these centuries later. It’s a voyage of discovery that will make your birthday celebration unforgettable.

 

Anniversary

Whether it’s one, two, three, five, ten or fifty (congratulation), wedding anniversaries are one of the best reasons to celebrate…and in style.

Escape the everyday in a private chateau in Bordeaux. You’ll feel a warm welcome with an offer of a glass of wine or cocktail, before you experience a guided tour of the cellars.

After enjoying your tour, you’ll have the opportunity to learn a little about French cooking as you sample fine wines accompanied by French appetizers, while a quartet of classical musicians will perform.

To secure your spot on this exclusive event for Windstar guests, you will have to be a book on the 10-day James Beard Foundation Culinary Cruise of Spain and France.

Discover the delectable cuisines and spirits of Spain and France at their authentic best in the company of your loved one, enjoying special themed events and activities, daily wine tastings, and informative lectures along the way. Treat your palate to Europe’s best seafood in Spain’s Galicia region, to sweet port in Porto, cognac in La Rochelle, and world-famous wines in Bordeaux. Walk hand in hand among the orchards of Gijon with their 250 varieties of apples, glass of sidra in hand. Toast to you anniversary in a region so bursting with flavour you wished you never had to leave.

Honeymoon

Now this is the celebration travel agents adore…because everyone loves a honeymoon holiday. But with so many destinations to choose from, picking the perfect holiday to suit you and your new partner can be daunting.

Windstar Cruises are experts in celebrations, and have tailored their itineraries to ensure you have the perfect romantic getaway – without any hassle!

On your 9-day Venetian Passageway cruise, you will learn why Lord Byron called this magical place “a fairy city of the heart”. Discover wonders only a small ship can take you to as this intoxicating voyage transports you along the ancient trade routes through the narrow confines of the Corinth Canal, to the ancient oracle of Delphi, and into the stunning fjords of Montenegro. The imposing ruins of the Parthenon, the intricately layered ruins of Butrint and Nafplio, one of the most beautiful and romantic towns in Greece.

When you’re not exploring magnificent cities, enjoy the facilities on offer aboard Star Pride, your yacht. With only 212 guests, a Star Pride cruise will make you feel like you’re on board your own private yacht almost as soon as you step aboard.

When you’re ready to make an appearance, the lounges, club, casino and library are waiting to be explored. Take some “you” time in the tranquil WindSpa . . . enjoy a dip in the pool . . . work off that decadent dessert in the Fitness Center . . . and, of course, you are always welcome to visit the Bridge to examine navigation charts with the Captain.

Just Because…

First car, first date, first house, new job. New pet, finished renovations, promotion or employee of the month. You name it…it’s worth celebrating.

And Windstar has you covered.

Tahiti, Venice, Rome, Athens, Istanbul, Barcelona, Caribbean, Libson, Dublin…the designations are endless.

Imagine spending a week on a friend’s private luxury yacht. Well, Windstar is the ultimate private yacht experience. Unlike the crowded cruise ships left in your wake, you are one of fewer than 300 guests on board. Your yacht is anchored in hidden harbors, docked in tiny ports, and in the heart of charming cities. While others wait for tenders in tedious lines, you swim and kayak off your own Watersports Platform. You step ashore into the center of amazing city scenes to explore the secret charms of places larger ships simply cannot reach.

So, do you need a better excuse to celebrate?

Oh, and call Windstar Cruises Australian Representative Travel the World on 1300 857 037 for more information.
