Wind Star Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
Launched in 1986, Windstar Cruises’ Wind Star is one of two nearly identical four-masted sailing megayachts in the fleet. Wind Star features wide open, teak decks—over 10,000 square feet of space, quite generous for a ship this size—and 21,500 square feet of new sail overhead. Renovations in 2012 included a head-to-toe update of the public rooms’ decor. Newly enhanced staterooms have chic leather headboards, arm chairs, linen wall coverings, new lighting features, window coverings, carpeting, new art work, and stylish bed cushions and bed throws.
Comfort is the element that ties these ship’s interiors together. Blue and cream, echoing hues of the sea and sandy beaches, predominate in the cozy main lounge, where you'll find a tiny casino tucked into a corner. With its large windows and a skylight, the lounge is flooded with natural light during daytime hours.
Public spaces are proportionately small on such a diminutive vessel and feature yacht-like touches of polished wood shipwide, as well as abundant fresh flower arrangements. The library contains books, movies to play in your cabin, and a computer center.
Passenger accommodations and public areas are all found in the aft two-thirds of the ship, with dining and entertainment located on the top two decks.
