Windstar Cruises is to star in two episodes of the new series of Cruising With Susan Calman which will transmit on Channel 5 on Friday 12th and 19th January at 8pm.

The episodes will feature the 148-guest yacht Wind Spirit as it cruises Tahiti and the Tuamotus Islands on a 10-night itinerary.

Susan shares her experiences as she snorkels with black tip sharks in Fakarava’s Blue Lagoon, visits the Gauguin’s Black Pearl Farm in Rangiroa, discovers the island of Bora Bora in an open-air truck and an outrigger canoe, accompanies the yacht’s executive chef on a visit to local market to buy supplies and joins Windstar’s complimentary Destinations Discovery Event on a secluded islet off Bora Bora which features a private meal on the beach followed by a dazzling display by fire dancers.

Onboard Wind Spirit, Susan chats with Wind Spirit’s captain, Belinda Bennett, the world’s first black female cruise ship captain who has become a role model to seafarers all over the world.

Augustus Lonsdale, Head of Sales – UK & Ireland, comments: “We were delighted to host Susan and the crew onboard Wind Spirit and are confident that these two episodes will inspire viewers to discover for themselves just why a Windstar cruise is the perfect way to experience the true wonder of the region.

“Windstar has been sailing in Tahiti for more than 35 years so no other cruise line knows the islands like we do, and no other cruise line offers as many seven-night departures, with longer 10-night itineraries to the Tuamotus and 14-night voyages to the remote Marquesas.”

Starting in February 2024, Windstar will replace Wind Spirit with the all-suite, 312-passenger Star Breeze which will sail year-round in Tahiti.
