  • So Much More Than Just a Paint Job!

    Just like they have done with small ship cruising, Windstar is taking “renovation” in a different direction. They are transforming their three all-suite Star Class ships—Star Breeze, Star Legend, and Star Pride—end-to-end to offer you more comfort in-suite, more delight on deck, and more surprises in store.


    Announcing “Cuadro 44 by Anthony Sasso” with Renowned Chef On Eclectic New Spanish Restaurant

    Windstar Cruises is taking its culinary program to the next level with its latest partnership: a new specialty restaurant named Cuadro 44 in partnership with renowned chef, Anthony Sasso. One of the youngest chefs to be recognized by the Michelin Guide, and celebrated guest chef at the James Beard House, Sasso promises a menu of modern and inventive Spanish cuisine inspired by his own travels across the Iberian Peninsula. Cuadro 44 by Anthony Sasso will first debut on Windstar’s award-winning small ships, beginning in February 2020 on Star Breeze, and later in 2020 on sister ships Star Legend and Star Pride.


    What's New?

    The Star Plus Initiative is the most complex and comprehensive small ship lengthening, engine replacement, and renovation project in cruising. "This is the biggest investment and expansion in Windstar Cruises’ history," said President John Delaney. “The investment of a quarter of a billion dollars ensures to our loyal and future guests, and industry partners, that these ships will continue to sail for generations and deliver on their promise of visiting the smaller ports and waters of the world that our brand is known for. We are all proud to be part of this historic event in the small ship cruise industry." Windstar will take half of its fleet – Star Breeze, Star Legend, and Star Pride – and renovate each ship in succession. Work on the ships begins in October 2019 and ends in November 2020. The total capacity of the expanded ships will be 312 guests, with additional staff hired to maintain the line’s impressive 1.5 to 1 guest-to-staff ratio. The ships’ new engines will meet and exceed new global International Maritime Organization (IMO) limits – one of the requirements being the engines produce no more than .5 percent sulphur content. In addition, the new engines are designed to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions, supporting the company’s goals of traveling with a softer environmental footprint.


    Nothing beats the fresh start of a new day in a new city, and so Windstar has taken a fresh a approach to getting ready with redesigned bathrooms in ALL suites on the ship. New showers, new sinks, new mirrors, and new tile. It's sure to start your morning off with a smile.


    Build a few water slides? Or elevate your view of the sea and sky? The choice was easy. Windstar is upping their game (literally) with a gorgeous infinity pool accessible from both upper decks.


    There’ll be more dining adventures in store than ever before, with an intimate alternative dining restaurant and other brand-new dining experiences rounding out the flavors on board.
