Windstar Cruises is moving its headquarters from Seattle to Miami by JUN 2022. According to the cruise line, the new location is minutes away from MIA and is in close proximity to many other cruise companies and associated services.

“Miami is the center of the cruise industry in the U.S., and this new office will help us build industry relationships and attract new talent. It will also let operations employees in Miami be closer to our yachts and crew, as well as shorten our flight times to Europe and the Caribbean, where so much of our operations take place,” said Windstar President Christopher Prelog.

Windstar recently hired Stijn Creupelandt as the new vice president of hotel operations and product development, while Paul Barrett was promoted to vice president of marine & technical operations. Both report to Prelog, and all will be based in the new office. As part of the headquarters transition, some Windstar corporate positions are moving to Denver, where the cruise line’s parent company is based, while others will be operating remotely primarily from the Seattle area, where the cruise line's offices are now.

“The pandemic has taught us that with the right technology, many of our roles can be effective from anywhere, so we’re not requiring every Windstar employee to make this move to Miami,” Prelog explained. “However, most new hires will be based in the Miami office.”

Prelog, as well as many members of Windstar’s team, have already moved to Miami to assist with the logistics and coordination of the new office for Windstar.
