Windstar Cruises is continuing to evolve its fleet with a US$3 million investment of 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, while Wind Spirit is scheduled to have its 73 staterooms completed in April of 2015.
The current layout will be transformed with a sofa where guests can relax, watch TV or catch a catnap to replace the previous desk and vanity set-up. When room service is ordered, or if guests want a place to write, the middle section of the sofa converts into a table, with seats at each end. Additionally, the centre dresser located next to the bed will be exchanged for a new dresser that will give guests more open room.
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 updated 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. (http://www.windstarcruises.com)
