Windstar Cruises to acquire two ships from Mystic Invest

CruiseWindstar Cruises will acquire two ships from Mystic Invest, the 2019-delivered WORLD EXPLORER and the not-yet-delivered WORLD SEEKER.

WORLD SEEKER will be renamed STAR SEEKER and will become the first ship to join Windstar Cruises when delivered in December 2025.  

WORLD EXPLORER will be renamed STAR EXPLORER and will be handed over in December 2026. WORLD EXPLORER is currently on charter to Quark Expeditions and Nicko Cruises.

Each ship will serve 224 guests and feature 112 suites with full private verandas and infinity windows. They’ll also come with two new owner’s suites with wrap-around balconies.

The ships will include a watersports platform, a cozy Yacht Club café and lounge, and a two-story spa and fitness facility, among other amenities. Plus, both ships will have ice-strengthened hulls, unlocking access to new destinations. Windstar Cruises is poised for remarkable growth and an exciting future ahead. We’re excited about the possibilities this opens up for our officers, crew, staff and especially our guests. 

The two ships acquired are part of a seven-ship order from Mystic Invest, placed at the Portuguese WestSea Viana Shipyard.
