Cruise Ship Information
Originally known as Seabourn Spirit, a German-built cruise ship completed in 1989. this ship's latest incarnation is Star Breeze. With sister ships Star Pride and Star Legend, Star Breeze will be delivered to Windstar in April, 2015.
 
This is one of the three power yachts launched this year. All staterooms and suites have ocean views, as well as new LCD flat-screens TVs, DVD and CD players, iPod Nanos and Bose SoundDock systems. There is also a seating area, a mini-bar, bathroom facilities and toiletries. All of Legend's 106 suites have new furnishings, lighting features, bedspreads and artwork.
 
There are three dining venues onboard. The restaurant offers all passengers an open seating option. The Veranda restaurant, set in the aft of the yacht, is a buffet that is open during the day with outdoor seating. At night, Veranda transforms to Candles Grill. This is a table service restaurant for passengers wishing to have dinner al fresco. The Pool Deck is the second buffet onboard. This offers a range of cuisines from Asian pork to jerk chicken.

Atmosphere on board 
With only 212 guests, you begin to feel like it's your own private yacht almost as soon as you step aboard.
 
The sitting area of your spacious, newly refurbished suite gives you an expansive ocean view — making it a welcome retreat.
 
When you're ready to make an appearance, the lounges, club, casino and library are waiting to be explored. Take some "you" time in the tranquil WindSpa . . . enjoy a dip in the pool . . . work off that decadent dessert in the Fitness Center . . . and, of course, you are always welcome to visit the Bridge to examine navigation charts with the Captain.
 
Star Breeze is large enough to pamper and entertain you, yet small enough to tuck into delightful tiny harbors and hidden coves that others can’t reach.
 
Family with Kids/Teens
No children's program or babysitting available. Children, especially infants and toddlers, are not encouraged aboard Windstar cruises.

Windstar operates four sailing yachts known for their ability to visit harbors and ports larger ships can’t reach. The ships carry fewer than 300 guests and call on ports throughout Europe, the Caribbean and the Americas with a complimentary water sports platform available when the ship is in anchor – subject to weather of course—featuring water skiing, kayaking, and windsurfing. The ambiance is relaxed (no jackets or ties needed) but upscale. While these yachts aren’t meant for kids, they’re ideal for parents who want a getaway without the kids or a special trip with grown kids.

Breakfast
It is 7:30 in the morning. You awake to hear the gentle tradewinds filling the sails. The smell of freshly-brewed Colombian coffee and buttery croissants lures you topside to the Veranda. It's breakfast al fresco, full service or buffet-style, anytime till 9:30. No need to hurry. Or if you prefer, linger over a continental breakfast served in the privacy of your stateroom. Whichever is fine with us. After all, this is what the good life is all about: doing what you please, when you please.
 
Lunch
Again, the choices are many in the Veranda. Choose the sumptuous, seemingly endless buffet. Or, order from the lunch menu.
 
Dinner
In the evening, we turn the spotlight to our elegant, wood-paneled restaurant. Here, the dining room manager seats you, but where is your decision. There are no preassigned tables or first or second seatings. When you dine and with whom are entirely up to you. (Seating usually begins at 7:30 p.m. and will be printed in the ship's daily program.) On the Wind Surf, you can enjoy the lively Degrees, featuring special themed dinners like Italian, Indonesian, Steak House and an eclectic choice of wines.
 
The evening attire onboard Windstar is specified as "casual elegance"- the emphasis weighted heavily on the former.
 
The cuisine is exquisite ... a unique creation of light and savory entrees using fresh native food and tropical accents. What will it be? Pear and goat cheese salad with prosciutto? Roasted eggplant and garlic soup? Grilled ahi tuna with Asian vegetables and a ginger pink peppercorn sauce? Or perhaps a mocha and chocolate terrine with almond sauce? To all this, we add a fine selection of vintage wines.
 
We offer Sail light and vegetarian recipes, specially created by our Chefs on board. In addition, our Executive Chef on board is available to help you choose light fare upon request.

Tipping
Windstar crew work very hard to make sure that every aspect of your cruise meets the highest standards. This includes those crew members who serve you directly, such as wait staff, beverage servers and the stewards who service your stateroom each day. There are also many others who support their efforts whom you many never meet, such as galley and laundry staff. To ensure that the efforts of all crew member are recognised and rewarded, a Hotel Service Charge of US$ 12.00 per passenger is automatically added to each guest's onboard account on a daily basis. If service exceeds or fails to meet your expectations, you are free to adjust this amount at the end of the cruise. In addition, a 15% Beverage Service Charge is automatically added to bar charges and dining room wine purchases. These charges are paid entirely to Windstar crew members and represent an important part of their compensation.
 
In terminals, airports, ports of call and on shore excursions, it is suggested that you extend gratuities consistent with customary local practices.
 
Fellow Passengers
Windstar passengers tend to be active, well-traveled, well-educated adults of all ages, hailing from North America, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand. They tend to enjoy the more laid-back atmosphere of a smaller ship, the idea of traveling under sail and the unique itineraries that Windstar provides.
 
Our recommendation
“Doubling the size of Windstar fleet gives to Cruise Line freedom and the flexibility to expand their voyage collection to new destinations such as Malaysia, Singapore, Arabia, and Iceland among others, “additionally, these ships also allow Windstar to visit beautiful new places in the Mediterranean, such as a scenic cruise down the Corinth Canal, something that was limited before due to the height of sailing yachts.
