Work will begin this fall on the msy Wind Surf during a five-week combined wet dock and dry dock in November and December 2006. The Wind Spirit will undergo renovations in spring 2007 and the Wind Star in fall 2007.

While the previous Degrees of Difference projects focused mainly on aesthetics and soft goods, this investment will also focus on structural and mechanical operations, along with improvements to guest areas, such as new stateroom amenities and bathroom renovations.
