Windstar Cruises Fleet Refurbishment - WOW!!!

Windstar is launching a multi-million dollar fleet refurbishment plan to be completed in multiple phases beginning this fall. Total investment for the refurbishment is $18 million and it is one of several major projects within Windstar’s “Full Sail Ahead” strategic initiative encompassing refurbishment, branding, technology investments and product upgrades over the next 18 months.
This is a significant investment in their luxurious sailing yachts and will enable us to provide an unparalleled guest experience. Previously, there have been enhancements and refurbishment projects throughout the years to keep their yachts beautiful; however this is the most extensive fleet-wide refurbishment project in Windstar’s history.
Work begins this November on the first phase of Wind Surf’s refurbishment, emerging December 10, 2011, for the start of the Caribbean season, with renovated and luxurious staterooms, suites, bridge suites, corridors, and a ‘timber boardwalk’ throughout the main deck in keeping with her elegant yacht style.  
 Staterooms and Suites:
·         Staterooms on all three yachts will be transformed with new leather headboards, stately arm chairs, linen wall coverings, new lighting features, elegant window coverings, plush wool carpeting, art work, stylish bed cushions, and luxurious bed throws.
·         Suites will additionally be outfitted with new furniture that is easily convertible to lounging, dining, or accommodating a third occupant.

At nearly three times the size of her sister ships, the Wind Surf carries just 312 pampered guests in 154 total staterooms: 31 ocean-view suites, 2 Bridge Suites and 123 deluxe ocean-view staterooms. What that means in real terms is wide-open deck spaces, new services and lots of little extras that make a Windstar cruise remarkable.

Self-improvement and life enhancement have become the new dogma, and the WindSpa is the destination of choice. With a staff of 10 massage therapists, technicians and instructors, the WindSpa's treatments and therapies range from traditional massage and aromatherapy to comprehensive hydro and synergistic therapy, as well as yoga, fitness and wellness programs.
