“Before our yachts returned to operation, we spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to inspire wanderlust for booking a future cruise vacation – to give people something to look forward to and have a bit of fun in the process – so we created this visual treasure hunt as a way to show what makes Windstar such a unique cruise experience,” said Betsy O’Rourke, Chief Marketing Officer for Xanterra Travel Collection, Windstar’s parent company.

“Travel brings joy when you get to experience new things, share moments with loved ones, and make new friends. We hope this treasure hunt inspires reflection on past amazing experiences and inspires a future trip.”


To find the location of the hidden treasure, players must go online and watch 11 short videos that are hosted on Windstar’s social channels and on the sweepstakes landing page at

Each video contains a number, letter, or symbol that, strung together, form a Google Plus code revealing the destination of the treasure.

Once players crack the code, they can earn up to $200 shipboard credit and are entered to win a Windstar cruise.

The cruise winner will then embark on a super mega treasure hunt with a partner of their choosing to retrieve the extraordinary grand prize waiting to be discovered.
