Windstar’s Star Pride Christened!

Windstar’s Star Pride (formerly the Seabourn Pride) was christened yesterday in Barcelona.

Now with all-suite accommodations for 212 guests and a newly refurbished interior – which have some major changes – the Star Pride will start her Mediterranean season.

I am anxious to actually see the newly redesigned Yacht Club (previously the Observation Lounge)

and the Compass Rose (previously The Club):

as well as the Windstar touches throughout the ship including all of the suites.  When I receive actual photos of the Star Pride’s interior I will, of course, share them with you.

Consistent with Windstar changing from only motorsailing ships, it has unveiled a new logo:

Taking the Star Pride for a Test Drive – Knowing how much I loved cruising on the Seabourn Pride – the first Seabourn ship I ever sailed on – and how much I enjoyed my first Windstar cruise this past January on the Windsurf, which you can read about here:  Windstar’s Wind Surf – What Does It Tell Us About theTransformation of the Seabourn Pride into the Star Pride? Leave Your Tuxedo andBring Your Flip-Flops!I am truly looking forward to sailing on the Star Pride on September 8, 2014.

While I am onboard I will, no doubt, spend a lot of time looking at the differences, the changes, the improvements and, of course, enjoying the Windstar rebirth of this wonderful intimate ship.  (OK, I might have a few moments…a lot of moments…of nostalgia.)

If you would like to join me on this unique cruise of Istanbul, Turkey’s Black Sea Coast, Romania and Bulgaria (and, possibly, post-crisis Odessa, Ukraine) call me at (877) 2GO-LUXURY or email me at eric@goldringtravel.com.
