FINCANTIERI HANDS OVER SECOND IN CRUISE CONVERSION PROGRAMME

Thursday, May 27, 2021 

Conversion of 'Star Legend', the second ship of the extension and modernisation Star Plus Initiative project of Windstar Cruises, an operator in the field of high-end small ship cruises, has been completed at the Fincantieri shipyard in Palermo.

The extension programme, worth US$250m and involving the cruise ships Star Breeze, delivered last year, Star Legend and Star Pride, envisaged three main complex activity areas: installation of a new 25.6m mid-body section; the total renewal of the propulsion engines and diesel generators for a more environmentally responsible navigation; and extensive modernisation of public areas, passenger cabins and open decks.

Before the start of extension works, Star Legend had a length of 134m, with a tonnage of approximately 10,000t and a capacity for 212 passengers. Now, after its completion, the ship has a length of approximately 160m, tonnage of around 13,000t and accommodation for 312 passengers on board.
