Windstar Star Plus Class or Wind Class?

There is no doubt that the Star Plus Class and Wind Class ships are different types of ship, but that doesn't mean the level of friendliness and service divulges. One of the main differences is the size of the ships, Wind Class ships are much smaller than Star Plus however, they are still just as inviting. All of the staterooms on the Wind Class ships are almost identical and offer porthole views from the 18 square metre suites, and have a capacity of 148 passengers. In comparison, the Star Class staterooms offer a 26 square metre suite with a capacity of 342 passengers which is more than double to Wind Class.

Star class offers a wider variety of suites with nine owner suites ranging from 43.5 square metres to 76 square metres. Wind Class doesn’t feature balcony options, but you wouldn't want to spend too much time in your suite. You'd much rather be on the open decks where there are plenty of sunbeds and tables available to make this a very sociable place. Enjoy the small splash pool and whirlpool with the sea breeze in your hair and the sun shining brightly. Star Class has had a completely new section added to their ship which now consists of a larger pool deck, a larger infinity-style pool, and two whirlpools. Yes, after hearing the differences, they may seem like two opposite ships but they have a very similar feel and homely sense to them.
