The first of a trio of ships purchased from Seabourn, the Star Pride was refurbished and rechristened in 2014, and represents Windstar's first yacht not to be powered by sails, but the emphasis remains on Windstar’s tradition of seeking out small and off the beaten tack harbours that most other cruise companies don’t go. All cabins on the ship are suites, and some offer balconies.
Passengers may choose from three restaurants, one of which transforms as the day passes from a relaxed buffet to a atmospheric steakhouse, and as an added bonus for food enthusiasts, the chef allows passengers to accompany him to the local markets where he sources supplies. The Bridge is another attraction, always open for passengers, and the onboard casino, or alternatively the magnificent spa, which includes three whirlpools and a beauty salon, provide other diversions.
