New Year’s Resolutions from Trusted Cruise Travelers: “Life Is Short, Enjoy As Much As You Can!”

As the clock resets a new year at the stroke of midnight, new experiences eagerly beckon travelers to discover lands not yet known to them. We asked our favorite fans their travel resolutions for 2018, see if your plans match up with your fellow Windstar cruisers.

Wise Words to Sail By

To feel free…..the open road, water, and air……everything that is visible, achievable, and memorable……always keep in mind a quote from a bathroom stall; “for God’s sake TRAVEL!”.

Asia – Cruise to Roam then Float Home

We joyfully start 2018 on Star Legend on Jan 6 for 28 days through SE Asia….and then return to her once again Apr 24 for a cruise around Japan. We decided to “float home” rather than flying home so we finish in Seward, Alaska in mid-May. As our first venture into Asia, we’re visiting 8 countries with Windstar and one on our own. It will be extra special to visit countries from where many of the crew call home!

In mid-January @anitasfeast and I hope to be on Windstar’s Icons of Southeast Asia cruise from Hong Kong to Bangkok. This is one of the James Beard Collection cruises, and we know we and all of the guests are in for fabulous food and shore excursions. We can’t wait to try every food offered, a great way to learn about Vietnamese and Thai culture. Looking forward to the trip ??

My travel resolution for 2018 is to find a hidden gem on the island of Roatan. Visit a place that might soon go out of existence ( global warming is on its tip right now ).
