Windstar Cruises’ Star Pride has returned to service with refurbished public spaces and staterooms, including a complete renovation of two owner’s suites.

The owner’s suites have a new indoor-outdoor floor plan. An extended private deck area offers views over the bow of the ship. 

All suites on the 212-passenger yacht were furnished with new coffee tables and new flat-screen TVs. Twelve suites were transformed into triples with the addition of a sofa bed.

The lounge has new flooring, lighting, sound system and furniture. The Star Deck expanded by four feet on each side, giving additional space for guests to relax on deck chairs.

Veranda, the restaurant in the aft of the yacht, has expanded its outdoor seating to a new courtyard area, complete with a garden wall. The addition of sliding glass doors and a glass wind screen has opened up a 180-degree view of the ocean. AmphorA Restaurant, the main dining room, has a new look, too.

The former card room has been transformed into the Star Screening Room, a space where guests can watch movies and play video games. And the fitness center has a new layout and new flooring.

The Star Pride sailed from Athens on June 9 on a seven-day Greek isles cruise. It will sail throughout the Mediterranean during the summer and cross the Atlantic in October. After sailing a few Caribbean cruises, it will offer a series of Costa Rica and Panama Canal voyages into early March.

Windstar parent Xanterra Parks & Resorts spent $4.5 million on the Star Pride renovation, which gives the yacht the same features as sister vessels Star Breeze and Star Legend. Xanterra said it spent a total of $21.5 million renovating the three yachts over the past two years.
