Windstar Cruises Introduces Exclusive New Formula 1* Experience At The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Tuesday, Mar 28, 2023 0


Small ship line Windstar Cruises has added a new Formula 1® experience for its guests, this time at the final race of the 2023 season at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in November. The racing excursion is in addition to Windstar’s long-standing themed F1® cruise to the Monaco Grand Prix, with this year’s Rome & Prix du Monde of Monaco slated for 21st to 28th May aboard Windstar’s flagship, the 342-passenger sailing yacht Wind Surf.


Offered by no other cruise line, the Windstar shore excursion to the Formula 1® Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2023 is available as part of Windstar’s first-ever sailings in the Middle East on board the all-suite, 312-passenger Star Legend.


During an overnight in Abu Dhabi as part of the inaugural 10-day Sparkling Sands & Cities of the Persian Gulf voyage departing Dubai on 23rd November, guests will have the option to experience the climactic race of the F1® season on 25th and 26th November with premium grandstand seats for the time trials and the race, transfers to and from Yas Marina Circuit, English-speaking coordinators and onboard perks such as an exclusive cocktail party. Guests will also be joined by F1® Sports Broadcaster Bob Varsha, who will provide insights and expert analysis of the race and drivers. Pricing for the excursion is $1,599 per person.


“I’m a huge fan of F1® racing as are many of our Windstar customers,” explains Windstar President Christopher Prelog. “When we were planning our first-ever sailings in the Middle East, which begin in November, I had hoped a 2023 race date would overlap. And lucky us: our inaugural Middle East voyage aligns with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. It’s a green flag for Windstar’s sailing in a new, exciting region and a chequered flag for the 2023 racing season… a perfect fit.”


Prices for the 10-day Sparkling Sands & Cites of the Persian Gulf start from ££2,950 per person for return flights from the UK, overseas transfers, one night pre-cruise hotel stay in Dubai, one night post-cruise hotel stay in Muscat and the cruise with all meals and entertainment and port fees.
