Windstar’s president, Christopher Prelog, is celebrating the third year of his eventful tenure at the helm of the small ship cruise line, with a President’s Cruise to the Canary Islands in April, 2024 – and you can join!
President’s Cruises are more popular than ever, giving regular guests and the top cruise line executives the chance to interact and share their love of cruising.
Windstar’s Christopher Prelog began his career on cruise ships as a waiter – transitioning from time onboard to onshore leadership with a style that keenly taps into the realities of what it’s like to be part of a cruise ship crew. 
Fast forward a few years, and as president, Prelog’s three years on the job has involved relaunching the fleet’s operations in 2021 following pandemic shutdowns, to debuting three completely reimagined ships by 2022 (via what is regarded as the most complex refurbishment and expansion project in the industry), along with moving the line’s headquarters from Seattle to cruise-centric Miami.
He marks his third year as president with record-breaking sales, an expanded team (many of whom also climbed the Jacobs Ladder from ship’s crew to the boardroom), new destinations including dozens of just-added cruise tours and air/hotel packages, exciting cultural and environmental partnerships, and a reinvigorated devotion to onboard excellence, as well as the travel advisor community. 
“I always look forward to the yearly President’s cruise,” said Prelog. “It’s a chance for me to sail with guests and crew and learn about their Windstar experiences.”
