Windstar Cruises’ newest yacht, the 212-guest all-suite Star Legend made a spectacular debut to much acclaim in May 2015. She was christened in Rome by her Godmother Gloria Bohan, CEO and Owner of Omega World Travel and Cruise.com as well as an industry pioneer.
After a multi-million dollar makeover from stem to stern the former Seabourn Legend was transformed into the beautiful Star Legend, with high-end upgrades and expanded areas. She is the third addition to Windstar Cruises’ new Star Class all-suite yachts — joining her sister-ships Star Breeze and Star Pride. At just 9,975 tons she is able to anchor at small harbors and coves. These hidden gems are often not accessible to larger ships enabling guests to visit more unique destinations. Modern convenience is combined with the unique charm of yacht travel.
Casual elegance includes a lovely new décor of contemporary furniture, upscale touches, warm woods and a nautical color scheme create a comfortable ambiance. Guests will enjoy this luxurious yet relaxed atmosphere as they are pampered by a highly-acclaimed attentive staff that Windstar Cruises is known for.
Your luxury Star Legend voyage includes all meals at every venue as well as room service and non-alcoholic beverages, such as specialty tea and coffee drinks. Onboard entertainment, unlimited use of the Fitness Center and water sports equipment for snorkeling, kayaking, sailing water-skiing and others are also complimentary as well as Private Events, offering unique and unforgettable shore excursions.
