Windstar Cruises deploying new ship in Japan, Alaska

Small ship cruise line Windstar Cruises will send its newest ship, Star Seeker to the Far East and Alaska when it joins the fleet in 2026.

It will also offer a series of Alaska cruises.

Windstar last sailed in Alaska and Japan in 2023 before it redeployed Star Breeze to be the year-round ship in Tahiti.

“We are really happy to be able to bring back Alaska and Japan for our guests,” said Windstar’s President Christopher Prelog.

“We know these are popular destinations, and we have many people asking us to return there.”

Star Seeker will sail in Alaska from May through August 2026 on 7-, 10- and 11-day cruises between Juneau or Seward and Vancouver.

The Alaska cruises will offer land tour options to Denali.

After departing Alaska in late August, Star Seeker will sail to Japan to begin the popular 10-day Grand Japan cruises sailing between Tokyo and Osaka.

Star Seeker remains in Japan through November.

Windstar plans to have Star Seeker‘s new deployment details, including Alaska and Japan, bookable in early August 2024.

In Alaska, Windstar will employ expedition leaders on board to lead its Signature Expeditions.

These will explore remote wilderness areas such as Misty Fjords, for hiking, kayaking and skiff expeditions.

Expedition leaders will also give presentations on board in Alaska’s history, culture, flora and fauna.

“These immersive, small group expeditions are a key part of our Alaska program,” said Prelog. ”

In April, Windstar announced the addition of two new ships – Star Seeker and Star Explorer – to its fleet of boutique yachts.

Each will have 112 suites for a guest capacity of 224 and will be similar to the line’s current Star Class motor yachts.

Star Seeker will be delivered to Windstar in December 2025 with Star Explorer arriving in December 2026.
