More Star Pride Cruises Canceled as Ship Undergoes Final Repairs

(3:37 p.m. EST) — Windstar Cruises has canceled all Star Pride sailings through April 9, following a December 21 grounding incident in Panama that left the ship’s hull damaged.

The 212-passenger ship was stabilized at the scene before being towed to Balboa, Panama, where it’s undergoing repairs; an investigation is also underway. According to Amanda Graham, public relations director for Windstar Cruises, the line is evaluating alternate shipyards for final repairs.

Passengers on canceled itineraries can choose between a full refund or another Windstar cruise. Those onboard the ship that ran aground received a full refund and 100 percent of their fare paid toward a future cruise.
