Windstar Cruises Announces $250 Million Star Plus Initiative

December 17, 2018 Cruise News No Comments Email Email

I am thrilled to announce the $250 Million Star Plus Initiative, a significant investment in the future of Windstar Cruises. This exciting initiative is our 180 degree from ordinary solution to add new capacity and major enhancements to the guest experience on our three Star Class vessels. The initiative not only creates beautiful new suites and public spaces, but we will also take the opportunity to re-engine the ships with a more fuel efficient and environmentally responsible propulsion system.

The initiative will lengthen and expand guest accommodations on our three all-suite, Star Class vessels from 212 guests per ship to 312 guests following the lengthening. The work will be done to Star Breeze, Star Legend, and Star Pride in succession between October 2019 and November 2020, and will take place at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Palermo, Sicily, Italy. The project represents an overall capacity increase of 24%.

Each Star Class ship will be cut to allow the installation of a new section of ship that will lengthen each vessel approximately 25.6 meters (75 feet) bringing the total length to just over 450 feet, still the right size to access smaller ports like Sansury-sur-mer and Isla Parida. The project brings the total number of suites per ship to 156 adding 50 new suites boasting new floor plan configurations and represents an investment of more than $267,000 per passenger berth.

Also involved in the $250 Million Star Plus Initiative is the creation of state-of-the-art public spaces including:

  • Two brand new dining experiences including: an intimate, alternative dining restaurant, and a casual barbecue space.
  • Expanded Veranda Restaurant to offer significantly more ocean-view seating and upgraded dining area.
  • For existing suites, all-new bathrooms and installation of new sliding doors for the Balcony Suites.
  • Larger pool and hot tub that will be reconfigured and elevated offering outstanding views, along with more and enhanced outdoor deck area.
  • And much more…
