The Windstar Cruises 148-guest Wind Star was recently the first in three ships to undergo a bow to stern makeover, part of the $18 million dollar fleet-wide renovation program. This included redesigned staterooms and owner’s suites and enhanced public areas.
The Restaurant was transformed into a whole new dining experience as AmphorA Restaurant including a redesigned seating layout, and state-of-the-art wine display and storage.
A new menu was introduced featuring savory dishes such as Dover sole, duck a l’orange and lobster ravioli.
The Veranda’s outdoor seating was significantly expanded, creating an ideal mid-ship area for guests to enjoy breakfast and lunch alfresco. The interior includes a new buffet, new lighting, and epicurean style display counters. The Compass Rose was also reconfigured to open up expansively to the adjoining outdoor deck.
All the basic inside refurb stuff was done like carpets, upholstery, art, lighting and etc, while the public areas received a new sound system, additional alfresco seating, additional spa goods, paint job and new sails for good measure.
“So far the feedback on Wind Star’s renovation has been excellent,” said Birkholz. “We wanted to really enhance the feeling of being on your own personal yacht, and I think we’ve succeeded.”
Wind Surf and Wind Star are expected to be completed later this year.
