Windstar's Star Pride

There's an asterisk (*) beside this "new" ship because it's really an old ship being made new, which seems to be becoming a more economical way for cruise lines to expand their fleets. The Star Pride is the first of three ships from Seabourn Cruise Line that are moving to Windstar…in fact, the one is still sailing as the Seabourn Pride until April. Then it will undergo a "Windstarization" and emerge with a new name under a new flag, the third one to fly from its mast since it was, indeed, a new ship 25 years ago.

Launch date: May 5

Capacity: 212

Sister ships: None (yet…next year)

Maiden Voyage: Barcelona to Rome

Home Port: None

Ships in Windstar fleet: 4

Interesting: While it has no siblings for the time being, the Star Pride will welcome its two sister ships from Seabourn (the Legend and the Spirit) next year. All three will be all-suite ships that carry 212 passengers and together they will double the size of the Windstar fleet and raise its fleet-wide capacity to 1,230 berths. Besides accessing intimate ports — in the beginning in Europe — the Star Pride will feature more interaction with villagers, with local musicians entertaining on board and local market purchases to be served in the buffet for dinner. Each suite will have extras that include both a tub and a shower.
