Windstar Embarks on Promised Fleet Upgrade
December 1, 2003
Beyond cosmetic improvements, Wind Spirit and Wind Star will also receive upgrades in mechanical units, particularly in the air conditioning area, which has been problematic in the past.
Wind Star, the last in the fleet to undergo renovations, will enter dry-dock period December 5; the ship will re-emerge on December 19.
Windstar, which lost Wind Song, one of its four sail-cruise vessels, in a tragic fire last year, had announced this summer that it would invest an additional 6.5 million on the existing fleet which, at an average 15-year age per vessel, is one of the industry's oldest.
