Newspapers

Seattle, June 13, 2008 — Windstar Cruises, which operates a three-ship fleet of luxury yachts that explore hidden harbors and secluded coves of the world’s most treasured destinations, offers guests convenient Monogram Luggage Valet Service which transports guests’ luggage directly between their home and ship stateroom. Now getting to and from the ship can be as luxurious as a Windstar cruise.
