Windstar Outlines Plans For New Yachts

Windstar Cruises has announced new plans for its upcoming Star-class yachts, a trio of all-suite ships acquired from luxury line Seabourn. Joining the fleet over the next 2 years, each of the identical yachts accommodate 212 guests in 106 suites.

 

Star Pride

First to be delivered is Star Pride, which will debut with a christening ceremony in Barcelona on 5 May 2014 following a 3-week transformation. She will sail a 6-day inaugural voyage from the Spanish city to Rome, with media, trade representatives and guests onboard. In 2015, Star Pride will spearhead Windstar’s expansion efforts to the Far East with a 5-voyage collection to Asia and Arabia.

 

Star Breeze and Star Legend

Windstar will take delivery of Star Breeze on 15 April 2015, followed by Star Legend on 4 May 2015, in Genoa, Italy. Both yachts will undergo a remodeling of accommodation, dining venues and public spaces to Windstar’s style of small ship cruising, prior to spending their inaugural seasons cruising new regions in Northern Europe and the Mediterranean. In a first for the line, Star Legend’s “Land of the Midnight Sun” sailing will originate from Reykjavík, Iceland.

 

Signature Experiences and New Destination Suites

Windstar’s signature experiences, including the line’s famous deck barbecue gala, the Open Bridge experience, and the celebrated Sail Away party will be showcased on board the new yachts. The trio will also introduce the line’s new Destination Suites, highlighting the cultural décor and local art work of a Windstar signature destination.

 

Known for their intimate yacht-style experience and unique voyages to small ports and hidden harbours, Windstar Cruises currently operates a fleet of recently-renovated sailing yachts cruising to more than 150 ports throughout Europe, the South Pacific, the Caribbean, and Central America. With the introduction of the power yachts, the line doubles the size of its fleet, offering a total of 1,230 berths.
