Windstar’s reimagined Star Pride makes debut in Greece

The small ship cruise line has transformed the third of its Star Plus class yachts

Windstar Cruises’ all-suite Star Pride yacht has re-entered service following a major transformation.

The all-suite yacht sailed from Athens last week (June 9), calling in ports including 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. Like sister ships Star Breeze and Star Legend, the ship now has new suites and expanded outdoor and indoor public spaces. The yachts are also more environmentally friendly with new efficient engines and generators and advanced wastewater treatment systems.

All three yachts increased in maximum capacity from 212 guests to 312 guests, and feature additional dining experiences, including an outdoor barbecue concept with grilling guru Steven Raichlen and a Spanish small plates restaurant from Anthony Sasso. A spa, fitness centre, infinity pool and more outdoor deck areas have also been added. 

President Christopher Prelog said: “To have completed this project amidst a global pandemic is nothing short of amazing. 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. 

“We are seeing our highest guest satisfaction surveys on the new Star Class yachts, with the highest Net Promoter Scores in our brand’s history. Our guests and travel advisors really love the product we created on Star Class.”

The three yachts, together with Windstar’s three classic sailing yachts, are now all back in the water cruising.
