NEWS: Windstar Star Breeze stretching is complete and the project added 50 suites, two new restaurants, a larger pool and deck, spa and expanded public areas. Before the work, the Star Breeze was 134 meters long, 10,000 tons and had capacity for 212 guests. She is now 160 meters long, 13,000 tons and has capacity for 312 passengers.
While the COVID-19 pandemic shifted completion timelines for the renovations, nothing was cut from the scope of work and the original plans got back on track.
The enhancement program is valued at $250 million and involves the the Star Breeze, Star Legend and Star Pride.
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.
Work has already begun aboard Star Legend and her completion date is late January 2021; she will begin cruising in the Mediterranean in March. Star Pride will be completed in June 2021 and begin sailing in Northern Europe in July.
