In addition to the original scope of work included in the initiative, Windstar announced an additional investment in its fleet to add HEPA filters with UV-C lights into each ship’s HVAC system. The new filters and lights are the culmination of months of research to ensure the best of science and technology are installed on the ships to provide a safer environment on board.
