Windstar Cruises

Discover the pristine beauty and little-known history of Northern Pacific culture from the distinct perspective of small ship cruising during this 36-day Pacific Ocean crossing with excursions in Canada, Alaska, Japan and South Korea. Scan the horizon for breaching killer whale pods along the Canadian Inside Passage. Admire soaring eagles above Alaska’s Misty Fjords. Wander Wrangell’s streets, the only Alaskan town old enough to be governed by four nations. Seek out ancient native drawings on nearby Petroglyph Beach. Explore cracked World War II pillboxes and abandoned fortifications in and around Dutch Harbor. Look for iconic Japanese red-crown cranes near Kushiro, the “town of mist.” Gain insights into Korean traditions during a formal tea ceremony in Busan, South Korea. Wander amid Feudal Japan exhibits in the 5-story grandeur of Karatsu Castle, overlooking the sea. Venture to the storied pottery galleries of Arita Town, the birthplace of Japanese ceramic art, near Nagasaki.
