Star Class Reimagined

$250 Million Star Plus Initiative

A major renovation of Windstar’s three Star Class vessels.

Windstar’s continued commitment to personalized and immersive experiences — 180° from ordinary.

Between October 2019 and November 2020 at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Palermo, Sicily, Italy, each Star Class ship will be renovated end-to-end and cut to allow the installation of a new section of ship that will lengthen each vessel approximately 25 meters, bringing with it a variety of both enhanced and all-new suites and public spaces.

Even with this new expansion, we can still go through the Kiel and Corinth Canals and access smaller ports like Sanary-sur-Mer and Isla Parida. The project boasts new floor plan configurations and represents an investment of more than $267,000 per passenger berth.
