Windstar Cruises has appointed Lyall Duncan as Vice President-Legal & Assistant General Counsel.

He is the first company in-house legal counsel dedicated solely to Windstar Cruises and will be based out of the cruise line’s recently opened headquarters in Miami.

Duncan (pictured) has served as in-house counsel for several cruise lines, as well as founding his own private firm, Windstar said.

He has been General Counsel for The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, Vice President & General Counsel for Crystal Cruises, Associate General Counsel for Royal Caribbean, as well as Legal Counsel at Seadream Yacht Club.

“We feel very fortunate to have Lyall join the company, as we establish Windstar in Miami,” said Windstar and Xanterra Travel Collection’s Chief Legal Officer, Kirk Anderson. “Lyall’s breadth and depth of legal experience in the industry will be invaluable as we continue to build Windstar’s legacy as the leader in yacht-style cruising.”

Duncan is licensed to practice law in New York and Florida, and he is a longtime member of various maritime bars.
