Unlike other cruise lines, with ships that are far from ordinary, Star Clippers offers unique, small-ship sailing adventures around the world, surrounded by an ambiance that is equal parts laid back and well-appointed. The wind and the waves will be your friends as you join like-minded guests on these tall ships with canvas sails billowing in the wind as you set sail for sun-drenched ports in idyllic harbours.
Do whatever you want with your days and nights – snorkel, explore, relax by the pool or read in the library. For entertainment, the ships feature local performers to provide an authentic taste of their music and culture, no matter where they are sailing; the Caribbean, or the Panama Canal, in the azure waters of the Mediterranean, on Grand Voyages in Europe, an ocean crossing or in South East Asia. Star Clippers delivers adventure and authenticity in a relaxed, casual and laid back atmosphere.
Unique itineraries are offered aboard the three tall ships – Royal Clipper, Star Clipper and Star Flyer (a fourth ship, Flying Clipper, will be joining the fleet in the near future). The well-appointed staterooms on each ship have a nautical feel, there’s a main dining room and lounge for guests to gather and ample deck space for sunning, relaxing and even taking the wheel at times! Laze in the bowsprit net as you sail through the salt spray and feel at one with the world.
Star Clippers has added several exciting destinations, including Stintino in Sardinia, Propriano in Corsica, and Vis, Korcula and Zadar in Croatia. In South East Asia, there are several brand new itineraries that will include a first time visit to Cambodia and will vary ports on the Thai, Malay and Indonesian archipelagos. Cambodian ports of call include the island of Koh Rong, a wildlife paradise boasting dense forests and white beaches, and Sihanoukville, a trendy coastal city known for its fresh seafood. An optional, overnight excursion will also be available to guests wishing to visit the temple complex of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap.
For more than 25 years, Star Clippers has been introducing travellers to the thrill of modern tall ship sailing, offering amazing access to remote ports, on ships with all of the modern amenities and comfort you crave.
