Description


Can you imagine the elation of being at the helm of one of the world’s largest fully rigged sailing vessels, thousands of feet of sail unfurling above you, a turquoise sea below, and a sun-kissed horizon beckoning you to some far-flung emerald isle? Well, this is how you’d feel if you took a voyage with Star Clippers, which operates three of the largest and tallest fully rigged sailing vessels in the world.

Sailing enthusiasts are encouraged to lend a hand hoisting the sails, climbing the mast or taking to the helm. However, if you prefer, you can simply sit back and let the crew do all the work - easy-going informality sums up the atmosphere on-board. Star Clipper and Star Flyer weigh in at 2,290 tons and carry just 170 guests, with expansive teak decks and ample space for relaxing. The 5,000-ton Royal Clipper has the proud distinction of being the largest and only five-masted sailing ship built since her predecessor, Preussen, was launched at the beginning of the last century. With her complement of forty-two sails, Royal Clipper is a splendid sight to behold, carrying 227 guests in fabulous style.

Star Clippers calls at a variety of stunning destinations, including the Mediterranean, during the summer months along the coasts of France, Italy, Greece and Turkey. In the winter, cruises sail to Cost Rica, Panama and through the jewels of the Caribbean, anchoring off exquisite, untouched islands. In addition, there are thrilling sailing adventures that transit the Panama Canal, as well as enticing eastbound and westbound Atlantic crossings.

Itineraries are organised to maximise the time under sail and at ports of call - with minimal distances between, sometimes making it possible to overnight ashore.

Fleet Facilities


Food & Beverage+

The dining room serves buffet-style breakfasts and lunches, with a combination of buffet and à la carte dinners in the evening. Guests are served beneath the three-deck-high atrium dome in an open-seating arrangement and tables are set for four, six and ten guests - the casually informal ambience means no ties are required. Officers will join guests for dinner, on occasion. After dinner, gather together in the piano bar and join in with a few favourite tunes, cocktail in hand. Tea and coffee is served in the lounge, 24 hours a day.

Health & Fitness+

The bijou Royal Spa offers traditional and Thai massages and beauty treatments, including aromatherapy facials, and incorporates a beauty salon, Moroccan steam room,and a small gymnasium featuring several muscle-pump machines, body-toning equipment, treadmills, rowing machines and exercise bikes.

Water sports include snorkelling, banana boat rides, Sunfish sailing and water-skiing from Royal Clipper's built-in marina. The dive operation on board is extensive, with daily guided dive and snorkelling trips conducted in Zodiac inflatables right from the ship's gangway. Explore remote reefs, underwater wrecks and blue lagoons where marine species are in abundance. The on-board Dive Masters also teach, offering one-day 'Discover Scuba' courses, Open Water certifications and advanced-level ratings for those who already have Open Water certifications.

For those who dare, you can climb to the crow's nest (in a harness and with the assistance of crew).

Relaxation & Education+

There are no schedules of entertainment; you are free to do as you wish with your days and nights.Cool off with a dip in one of the pools or join the Captain on the (always open) bridge as he plots the course for the next landfall. Learn how to splice a line, reef a sail or tie a square knot. 


         

Music & Entertainment+

At certain ports, the ship will bring local performers on board for an authentic taste of the local culture. Otherwise, there is a solo pianist/singer who performs in the lounge and the Captain and crew are superb improvisers of some light-hearted fun - the 'Captain’s storytime, recapping the day’s events, is something not to be missed!
