Windstar Cruises
Star Pride

Venetian tourists wander past the mosaic artistry of Saint Mark’s Basilica, footsteps and conversations punctuated by the pulsating flutter of ascending pigeons. Agile house martins dive and swoop between weathered city walls pockmarked by time or dissent, alighting on centuries-old griffins that once proclaimed fealty to the maritime Republic of Venice. Discover the Adriatic and Greece from new perspectives during this 8-day cruise that touches on storied landmarks and intimate, little-known ports on the Adriatic Sea and in Greece. Admire Zadar’s Medieval city walls and charming boutiques. Lern about the global success of Croatian organic vineyards as you sample varietal wines in a farming village.
