    Star Pride: A new era for Windstar

    Windstar Cruises has begun sailing the former Seabourn Pride under a new name, Star Pride. After an 18-day drydock, Windstar put its own stamp on a number of public spaces. The former Constellation Lounge is now the Yacht Club (pictured here), and Windstar has installed its trademark Compass Rose lounge where The Club used to be. Windstar is playing up the yacht-like feel of the Star Pride, the first of its ships that won't have sails. See more of the changes in the following slides.
