The Star Legend will do 11- to 14-day cruises, allowing for slower speeds and greater opportunities for wildlife spotting.
The 212-passenger ship is small enough to sail through Misty Fjords National Monument and Kenai Fjords National Park, Windstar said. Every cruise will feature an exploration of Tracey Arm Fjord.
Windstar will offer three itineraries with eight sailing dates from May to August, including a 14-day Seward-to-Vancouver option; a 12-day Vancouver roundtrip, and 11- or 12-day Vancouver-to-Seward voyages.
Windstar plans to offer pre- and post-cruise land excursions, giving guests more time to explore Alaska’s interior.
