Windstar Cruises Announces Jeff Corwin As First Private Event Host Of 2016

Windstar Cruises have announced TV personality and conservationist Jeff Corwin as Windstar’s first Private Event host of 2016. Corwin will host the Isla de Coiba: Island Experience Private Event on Star Breeze’s March 5, 2016, Costa Rica & Panama Canal voyage.

Corwin is best known as host of the multi Emmy award-winning TV series Ocean Mysteries on ABC and Animal Planet's Jeff Corwin Experience, as well as for his years of wildlife and conservation work. He will be on hand to host Star Breeze’s Isla de Coiba: Island Experience, a unique event on Panama’s Isla de Coiba, an UNESCO World Heritage Site and national park that is accessible only by special permit. Coiba is a marine reserve located off Panama’s Pacific coast, and offers guests a chance to view wildlife such as howler monkeys, Scarlett Macaws, turtles, and more in their natural environment, as the island maintains 80 percent of its natural habitat.

Corwin will lead guests through a talk on animal conservation. The experience also includes beach and sport activities such as volleyball, snorkelling, and bocce ball, as well as a full beach barbeque. Corwin also is slated to give an onboard lecture and will join guests for dinner during the journey to create a variety of opportunities for one-on-one interactions with the 212 guests on board.

Windstar’s complimentary Private Event programme, launched in 2015, seeks to provide guests with an exclusive experience specific to the destination where they are sailing. Each Windstar itinerary includes a bespoke experience ranging from island activities in the Caribbean and Tahiti, to wine tasting in Italy, to an equestrian ballet and sherry tasting in Spain. New Private Events debuting in 2016 include feasting on reindeer meat in Iceland; exploring the magnificent marble caves of Bergtatt, Norway; and watching the people of Catalonia, Spain build traditional “human towers.”
