O Canada! Windstar is now providing a Canada-centered booking process in order to provide better service and value for Canadian guests. 

The line has announced new booking features that allows Canadian travel advisors to search and book in Canadian dollars. 

All Canadian travel agencies will automatically default to CAD when the booking process begins, and any additional pre-cruise purchases associated with a CAD booking will be in Canadian dollars. 

Agencies and their clients, however, may request the pricing to be in USD as was previously offered.  

Save up to 30% off 

To celebrate, Windstar is offering Canadian residents a chance to save up to 30% off select sailings. The offer is only for travellers with a Canadian residential address on new bookings.  

Popular destinations such as Greece, the Mediterranean, Iceland and French Polynesia are included in the select sailings. The offer is available until July 31, 2024.  

“Canada is one of our most important markets. We view it as a part of our primary North American business. But while Canadians are similar to our American guests in many ways, currency is one major difference,” said Windstar Vice President of Sales Dianna Rom. “We’re very glad to provide information on our cruises with Canada-centric pricing to make it easier for Canadians to calculate the cost and value of their Windstar cruise experience.”    

Currencies can be adjusted up until a payment is made. Once a payment is made, it will be set to that designated currency and the currency exchange rate is locked. The exchange rate will be reviewed monthly and updated accordingly. 

“If a booking is changed from CAD to USD, the price of the booking will not change with fluctuating bank exchange rates,” said Rom. “Once locked in, that will be the price of the booking in the selected currency.”  

Rom says the change will help advisors provide better value to their Canadian clients. 

Windstar will be be creating CAD-priced flyers and other marketing materials. Travel advisors can access these through Windstar’s online Advisor Hub or request them via their Windstar Canadian Regional Sales Manager Andrea Mendelsohn-East at
