It took some careful driving (sailing) on Wednesday, but Windstar's Star Legend became the largest ship ever to transit the Ballard Locks and sail on Seattle's Lake Union.
The ship is sailing this summer on an Alaska program from Seattle, and this was a special detour that carried employees, VIPs, travel partners and media on the daylong excursion. It was the first time a Windstar ship had visited Seattle in 27 years.
Details appeared in the June 29 edition of Cruise News Daily.
At some points, Star Legend had only 12 feet of clearance.
