Windstar Embarks on Promised Fleet Upgrade
Windstar Cruises has launched its much-awaited and recently-announced fleet enhancement program with the re-debut of Wind Surf and Wind Spirit.  Spruce-ups for the ships, the first two to receive the enhancements, include the addition of DVD players and flat screen televisions in all passenger cabins, re-conditioned teak floors and more contemporary furnishings in the pool area, and replacement of soft goods – otherwise known as bedspreads and draperies.

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.
