Windstar Cruises names first of its three new power yachts Star Pride

Windstar Cruises, a market leader in small ship cruising, has announced that the first of its three new, all-suite, power yachts will be called Star Pride.

Star Pride, launching in May of 2014, will spend its first season in Europe offering new voyages . The names of the additional two cruise yachts will be announced in due course.

The new power yachts - currently operating for Seabourn cruyise line as Seabourn Pride, Seabourn Spirit and Seabourn Legend -  are identical, with a guest capacity of 212 each in 106 suites. At 10,000 gross tons, each yacht is 440ft long with a breadth of 63ft and six passenger decks.

The new power yachts - part of Global Windstar, the line’s fleet expansion and new product development initiative - will showcase many signature Windstar experiences, including the line’s famous deck barbecue, the open Bridge policy, and the celebrated sail-away party.

“Star Pride and the additional two yachts will fit perfectly into Windstar’s intimate, yacht-style cruising by offering a small-ship luxury cruise with 300 passengers or less in a casually elegant style going to places bigger ships cannot go,” said Hans Birkholz, Windstar Cruises’ chief executive officer.

“We are thrilled to now be able to offer even more intriguing choices in Europe for the 2014 season.”

Increasing the size of the fleet enables Windstar to cruise a global set of itineraries to new destinations, such as Wind Spirit’s much anticipated return to Tahiti and Star Pride’s European voyage collection which will include new places in Europe such as a voyage in the Black Sea, to be announced in May. It will also provide opportunities to visit Asia and South America.
