Windstar Cruises, the leader in small ship cruising, continues to evolve its fleet with three million dollars in stateroom upgrades scheduled for Wind Star and Wind Spirit, the two smallest sister yachts of the fleet. Wind Star’s 72 guest staterooms will be renovated in a dry dock this November (one stateroom was already completed as a model showcase). Wind Spirit is scheduled to have its 73 staterooms completed in April of 2015.
Theresa, Windstar’s Marine Hotel Superintendent, was recently on board Wind Star to create a showcase stateroom of the new enhancements. The process is captured in the images below:

The current desk will be replaced with a sofa where guests can relax, watch TV or catch a cat-nap.
When room service is ordered, or if guests want a place to write, the middle section of the sofa transforms into a table, with seats at each end.
The center dresser located next to the bed will be exchanged for a chic dresser that will give guests more open room without losing storage space.
Staterooms on both yachts were previously enhanced as part of Windstar’s $18 million fleet-wide renovation project in 2012. Across the fleet, staterooms were enhanced with leather headboards, stately arm chairs, linen wall coverings, new lighting features, elegant window coverings, plush wool carpeting, art work, and stylish bed cushions. Corridors were completely renovated from floor to ceiling with new wall coverings, carpeting, ceiling finishes, lighting, and art work.
