Thursday, 11 Apr, 2024 0

Windstar Cruises is boosted its fleet with the addition of two all-suite motor yachts, called Star Seeker and Star Explorer.

The first of the two ships, new-build Star Seeker, under construction in the WestSEA shipyard, is expected to be delivered in December 2025.

This will be followed by Star Explorer in December 2026.

“Our goal was to ensure these ships are unmistakably Windstar, and a significant amount of effort has gone into achieving this,” says Windstar Cruises’ President Christopher Prelog. ”

“We are thrilled for this expansion, allowing us to broaden our destination portfolio.”

With the expansion one of the Wind Class sail ships will return to Tahiti for French Polynesia cruises, Prelog says.

The new ships will have 112 suites with full private verandas and infinity windows.

Additionally, two new Owner’s Suites with wrap-around balconies have been added to the aft.

They will have a capacity for 224 guests.

Windstar guest favorite features on the ships include the Watersports Platform with new staircase access, the Yacht Club café and lounge, a two-story spa and fitness facility, and a whirlpool on the bow.

Dining options include a reimagined main dining room Amphora, with al fresco dining available at both Amphora and the Star Grill.

The ships will have tier III Nox rated Rolls Royce engines and can connect to shore power to minimize port emissions.

The ships also have advanced wastewater treatment systems.

The expansion allows Windstar to bring back ship Wind Star, to Tahiti, where it will join Star Breeze in 2027.

The cruise line has 36 years’ experience operating French Polynesia cruises.

Full itineraries and booking details for Star Seeker will be announced in late June 2024.
