Windstar Cruises is investing more than $250 Million (a quarter of a billion dollars) into the “Star Plus Initiative,” a major transformation of Windstar’s three Star Class yacht-style vessels: Star Breeze, Star Legend, and Star Pride. The trio of ships, which comprise of 50 percent of the fleet will be “stretched” and renovated in succession with work starting in October 2019 and ending in November 2020.
The popular ships will be cut in half to allow the installation of a new section of ship that will lengthen each vessel approximately 25 meters.
The total capacity of the “new” expanded ships will be 312 guests and the new section of ship will enable the cruise line to provide services and amenities that its extremely loyal customer base has been asking for in recent times and ensure that the beloved ships will cruise well into the future.
