Windstar Cruises’ fleet of yachts renovated

Windstar Cruises’ flagship prepares to enter dry dock

Wind Surf, Windstar Cruises’ flagship, will enter into dry dock on November 12 at Lisnave, a Portuguese shipyard. The 310-passenger sailing ship will start a stem-to-stern renovation with a five-day dry dock. It will then cross the Atlantic with only crew on board to complete a 13-day wet dock. The first post-renovation voyage, called Yachtsman’s Caribbean, will sail from St Maarten on December 1.
The 148-passenger Wind Spirit will spend a two-week dry dock in Lisnave before a transatlantic crossing, arriving in Barbados on December 22. Wind Star, the sister yacht to Wind Spirit, was fully renovated in April. The staterooms and suites of all three yachts were refurbished last autumn and this spring.
“We are looking forward to having our whole fleet enter 2013 with an elevated feeling of private yacht style,” said Hans Birkholz, CEO and president of Windstar Cruises.
