The $250 Million Star Plus Initiative

So much more than a paint job.

Just like we’ve done with small ship cruising, Windstar is taking “renovation” in a different direction. We’re transforming our three all-suite Star Class ships—Star Breeze, Star Legend, and Star Pride—end-to-end to offer you more comfort in-suite, more delight on deck, and more surprises in store.

Is That All?

Oh, we’re just getting started. We're re-imagining and enlarging the Spa and Fitness Center as well. Check back soon for more news and details.


Soak it in.

Ocean views from the elevated pool and whirlpool.

Sightsee While
You Soak

Build a few water slides? Or elevate your view of the sea and sky? The choice was easy. We’re upping our game (literally) with a gorgeous infinity pool accessible from both upper decks.

Same Small Ship Advantage

Can you still explore the smaller ports that bigger ships can’t reach? You bet the steeples of Sanary-sur-Mer and the sand on Isla Parida.

Better Living on Board

We’re redefining what it means to travel well by expanding and fully redesigning our Spa and Fitness Center, so you’ll have all the inspiration you need to treat yourself right.

Is That All?

It's just not time yet but we'll be releasing more information in the next year, so check back often for new announcements.


Add flavor.

Richer selection of dining venues shipwide.

Seating Worth

As always, enjoy open seating at all of our dining venues, but with more ocean-view seats, comfy outdoor furniture, and dining room upgrades, we think you’ll like your options even more.

Feed Your

There’ll be more dining adventures in store than ever before, with an intimate alternative dining restaurant and other brand-new dining experiences rounding out the flavors on board.

Same Small Ship Advantage

We’re maintaining our guest to crew ratio of 1.5:1, so we’ll still be there with what you need before you know you need it. Our crew can’t wait to welcome you aboard the renovated Star Class Ships.

Small plates and exquisite Iberian flavors welcome you on board.

Anthony Sasso on CBS This Morning

"I've spent a lifetime studying Spanish food and culture, working in several Catalan kitchens, traveling the Iberian landscape, and learning from the masters: Adria, Roca, Ruscelada, Santimaria, Dali, Picasso, Miro! It's led to some of the most acclaimed and recognized Spanish food in America. This new venture with Windstar will be the perfect vehicle to transport all of those flavors back to the sea where they were born and I'm extrememly excited in going along for the ride, back to where it all started."


Anthony spent time in Spain’s Costa Brava at renowned restaurant El Celler de Can Rocca before becoming head chef at Casa Mono where he earned the restaurant a Michelin star 10 individual times. A James Beard Foundation-recognized chef, he hosted Windstar’s James Beard Foundation: Spanish Symphony culinary cruise in summer 2018


"The design for the new specialy restaurant on Deck 6 draws from the various regions of Spain, recalling the warm feeling of a rustic home. The residential scale combined with soft, indirect lighting creates an intimate atmosphere where guests feel surrounded by the sights, smells, and tastes of Spain. A cozy chef's counter lets diners experience the cooking up close, viewing into an open kitchen. Handcrafted details and colorful, intricate patterns provide a richness reminiscent of Andalusia, and playful accents on the walls and in the furniture capture the whimsy of Barcelona."

Ray Chung, Director of Design,
The Johnson Studio at Cooper Carry

Is That All?
