Ports

Honolulu is the capital and largest city of Hawaii, situated on the island of Oʻahu. The city has things to offer to everyone! For nature, you can hike the Diamond Head volcano crater that towers over Honolulu and provides amazing views. If you prefer to relax, go to the famous Waikiki Beach. For local history, the Iolani Palace is a must-see. Of course, you shouldn't miss the local food and drinks, which you can enjoy in one of the many restaurants around.

Tokyo is the capital of Japan, located at the head of Tokyo Bay on Honshu, Japan's largest island. With over 14 million residents, it is a bustling metropolis where the tradition meets modernity, and where you will not get bored! For amazing views, go up to the iconic Tokyo Tower. Try the authentic Japanese food for lunch, then take a breath in the Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden before visiting the famous Senso-ji Temple.

STO Garant

This Journey is covered by the STO Garant guarantee. You can find the conditions for this guarantee scheme on STO Garant’s website (www.sto-garant.nl/en/downloads).

This process is automatic and you do not need to do anything else. After receiving your booking, Windseeker will send you detailed information on how and when to pay for your journey – together with all the other important details.

 

What does it mean?

In short: you do not pay the booking amount to Windseeker but instead into an escrow account. This trust account holds your payment in reserve until your journey’s end. The booking amount is then released to Windseeker on the day after your trip ends. If Windseeker or the Ship should become financially insolvent before the end of your trip, STO Garant will implement the guarantee. The Guarantee Scheme details how you can make a claim under the guarantee in such cases. You can read more about this here.
