Windstar Debuts Star Breeze, Its 2nd All-Suite Power Yacht
In a christening ceremony held yesterday in Nice,
Windstar Cruises debuted Star Breeze, the 2nd of the fleet’s
3 new all suite power yachts.
Wendy Perrin, TripAdvisor Travel Advocate and the
founder of WendyPerrin.com, was
honoured as Godmother of the yacht, successfully breaking a traditional bottle
of champagne over the bow in front of a crowd of 250 guests.
“I can’t imagine a more exciting time to be part of
Windstar Cruises,” says CEO Hans Birkholz. “The driving force to
Windstar’s success is our unwavering commitment of providing a personal
yacht-style vacation. Our ships are small, our ambience: casually elegant,
our service: personal.”
The 212 pax yacht joins the fleet after an $8.5 million,
3 wk. renovation in Genoa. Star Breeze received a full stem to stern makeover,
including overhauls of every public space, dining venues and suites.
After its inaugural voyage, Star Breeze will
cruise the Mediterranean for the summer season. Following an ocean crossing in
the fall, Star Breeze will embark on Windstar’s newest Caribbean
itinerary, Icons of the Dutch Caribbean, before continuing on to sail in
Panama and Costa Rica for the winter season.
