Windstar Cruises is expanding benefits for returning guests, said the cruise line, offering exclusive discounts at partner travel operators and resorts under parent company Xanterra Parks & Resorts.

Windstar cruisers are automatically registered as members of the Windstar Yacht Club following their first sailing, later enjoying special benefits when they book future cruises, amenities while on board, and when they share the Windstar experience with friends and family.

With the new partner program, Yacht Club Membership rewards now include the following discounts:

-  5% off an Austin Adventures adventure vacation

-  $200 resort credit per stay at The Cloister or The Lodge at Sea Island
-  10% off standard rack rates and a complimentary room upgrade at The Broadmoor
-  5% off any VBT Bicycling or Walking Vacation.  

In addition to the above partner offers, Yacht Club Membership includes:

-  5% savings on most cruise fares

-  Private onboard member cocktail reception
-  Invitation to dine with the Captain or Ship’s Officers
