Windstar Decides Wind Song's Fate
Windstar's Wind Song, which tragically suffered a major engine room fire on December 1, has been declared a "total loss" and was scuttled, or sunk, in French Polynesian waters last week. The ship sank to the bottom at a depth of 9,843 feet. Parent company Holland America says it took the action to scuttle Wind Song with the approval of French Polynesian environmental officials. Wind Song was built in 1987.

Wind Star, which is replacing Wind Song as the company's year-round ship sailing French Polynesian itineraries, arrived as scheduled and has departed on its first cruise from Papeete.
