Windstar Cruises’ transformed Star Pride returns to service

Friday, Jun 10, 2022 0

Small ship cruise line Windstar Cruises unveiled its revamped all-suite Star Plus Class Star Pride yacht.

The ship sailed from Athens on a sold-out, eight-day voyage to Barcelona, calling at Gythion, Corfu, Argostoli, Messina (Taormina), Trapani, and Cagliari.

Star Pride is the third and final of Windstar’s Star Plus Class yachts to emerge from Italy’s Fincantieri shipyard following a lengthening and transformation project.

Now, all six of the line’s all-suite and sailing yachts are back in service.

The line’s three all-suite Star Plus Class yachts (Star BreezeStar Legend, and Star Pride) underwent major transformations, with an investment of more than $250 million.

Star Breeze was the first to launch in June 2021, with Star Legend following in September 2021, both with new suites and expanded outdoor and indoor public spaces.

All three yachts increased in maximum capacity from 212 guests to 312 guests.

“To have completed this project during a global pandemic is nothing short of amazing,” said Windstar President Christopher Prelog.

“We’re grateful to our ownership and to our partners for sticking with it, and to our customers for their excitement and support of these new products.”

The three all-suite yachts, together with Windstar’s three classic sailing yachts, remain small enough to continue visiting special small ports and waterways around the world.
