Windstar Cruises’ Star Breeze, Star Pride and Star Legend will feature new grill restaurant named Star Grill, which has been developed in partnership with culinary author, TV host and barbeque specialist Steven Raichlen in 2020. 

The addition of the alfresco dining option is part of the line’s US$250 million Star Plus Initiative. The top-deck eatery will serve grilled, smoked and rotisserie specialities, including seafood, meats and vegetables.  

“We’re delighted to be working hand-in-hand with someone of Steven’s culinary calibre,” said John Delaney, president of Windstar. “Our new partnership is a wonderful alliance that will provide our guests with an inviting new place to dine that is entirely suited to Windstar’s casually elegant style of cruising. We are on course to make Windstar the undisputed culinary innovator in small ship cruising, and the inventive nature of Steven’s cuisine will be a key part of that leadership.” 

Located just steps away from Star Bar, the line’s ocean-view bar, Star Grill by Steven Raichlen will provide deckside seating for 95 people with two carving stations. 

In addition to the new restaurant partnership, Raichlen will sail onboard one culinary-themed cruise each year, leading grill demonstrations and lectures, as well as socialising with guests and catering exclusively to fewer than 350 people. 

“I’ve spent my life travelling the world’s barbecue trail to bring my readers and viewers the ultimate in global grilling,” said Raichlen. “What better way to share my discoveries than on a Windstar cruise ship bound for new adventures.”
