Wind Surf completes first phase of refurbishment

Wind Surf completes first phase of refurbishment
The first phase of Wind Surf’s refurbishment, encompassing the staterooms, suites, bridge suites and corridors, has been completed. The ship embarked passengers on Saturday in St. Maarten, beginning its Caribbean season with a new look.

The staterooms now have leather headboards, stately armchairs, linen wall coverings, new lighting, elegant window coverings, plush wool carpeting, artwork and stylish bed cushions.

Suites were additionally outfitted with new furniture that converts easily to lounging, dining or accommodating a third occupant.

Corridors were renovated from floor to ceiling with new wall coverings, carpeting, ceiling finishes, lighting and artwork.

The second phase of Wind Surf’s refurbishment will take place next fall and focuses on the public spaces including the Lounge, The Restaurant, Degrees, Veranda, Compass Rose, WindSpa, Yacht Club and Pool Bar.

Wind Star and Wind Spirit will undergo complete refurbishments of staterooms, owner’s suite and corridors along with public spaces including The Restaurant, Veranda, Lounge, WindSpa, Library, Reception and Pool Bar following their respective Costa Rica and Caribbean seasons.

After the work is finished, both yachts begin their Mediterranean seasons with Wind Spirit starting April 15 and Wind Star beginning April 29.
