Windstar is renovating its sailing ships

Windstar has launched a multimillion-dollar redesign and update of its three sailing ships, and the cruise line expects to complete the work in 2026. 

The redesign began with the 148-guest Wind Star and will follow with the 148-guest Wind Spirit and the 342-guest Wind Surf. 

Work began on the Wind Star this fall with an expansion of the pool deck, the addition of a new pool and jacuzzi, and an expansion of the pool bar. The line also added new sofas, poufs, ottomans and chairs around the pool, new speakers and lighting, plus new fauna and greenery around the pool bar. 

Other completed projects on the Wind Star include opening up space in the lobby for a larger reception area with additional seating and expanded retail space, and redesigning the spa and fitness center with new finishes, color palettes and equipment.  

The line also added larger televisions in every cabin, along with additional WiFi access points. Further updates to guest staterooms, the Amphora main dining room and the Veranda breakfast and lunch restaurant will be done in phase two of the project in 2026.

The Wind Spirit will undergo a full remodel to be completed in 2025, while the Wind Surf will be upgraded in two phases, one in 2024 and the other in 2026. The update will include a full redesign of all public spaces, including new layouts, furniture, wall and floor coverings, lighting, and custom art. 

The project will also touch staterooms, premium suites and owner’s suites, including the addition of interactive TVs and new furniture and décor. 

The line is also commissioning artwork in partnership with Fountainhead Arts in Miami to revolve around the themes of nature, organic materials and yachting.
