Star Clippers has announced the launch of their latest tall ship cruise brochure, featuring sailings from March 2022 through March 2024. This latest brochure contains exciting new adventures as well as many favourite itineraries. Star Clippers fleet of three tall ships sail year round, with itineraries in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, and Central America as well as Atlantic Ocean crossings. The brochure is available digitally online here and will be available in print this summer.
Guests booking by May 15, 2022 will receive 10% off the cruise fare, an onboard credit of $100, complimentary pre-paid gratuities, and a lovely bottle of champagne waiting for them in their cabin. Offer is valid for residents of North, Central and South America only.
The 2022 and 2023 seasons offer some exciting changes to sailing itineraries. The line’s namesake, Star Clipper, which has been sailing in Southeast Asia, will join her sisters in the Mediterranean in April 2022, marking the first time in five years that all three ships will sail together in this part of the world. This will allow the company to be able to host even more guests on new itineraries such as ‘Yachtsman’s Paradise’ and ‘Delightful Dervishes’ – seven-night sailings between Istanbul and Athens – and some of their most popular itineraries including the ‘Sporades Highlights’ cruise, visiting locations from the original Mamma Mia movie.
And, for the first time in eight years, Star Clippers will be calling on ports in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama and its famed canal, starting November 2022. Seven-day sailings round trip out of Puntarenas call on favourite Costa Rican towns, as well as ports in Panama or Nicaragua, depending on itinerary. These new sailings take guests to beaches on idyllic Isla Tortuga, Costa Rica and “deserted islands” such as Isla San Jose in the Pearl Islands. Nature lovers will adore the port town of Quepos, Costa Rica, located near the magnificent Manuel Antonio National Park, where they can encounter monkeys, sloths, and nearly 450 species of birds that call the park home.
Racing fans will be thrilled to learn that once again, Royal Clipper will offer the popular Grand Prix and St. Tropez Regatta sailings starting this year. A pair of itineraries in May puts guests in Monaco for the world-famous Grand Prix races, and in the fall, a round trip sailing out of Cannes takes guests to St. Tropez for the famed regatta.
The Caribbean also has its share of special itineraries as Royal Clipper calls on Martinique during their Mardi Gras festivities, allowing guests to experience the magic of this island’s French-meets-Caribbean culture. And sailing fans will sure to be enticed with the Super Yacht itineraries on Star Flyer, which put guests in St. Barts during the popular Bucket Regatta.
Star Clippers’ special Grand Voyage itineraries are created to allow guests to experience an extended journey through the Eastern and Western Mediterranean and are now available on all three of the clipper ships. These 12- to 19-night sailings have no more than three days at sea during any trip, allowing more time for exploring the small towns and UNESCO heritage sites, sampling the local cuisine, and getting a glimpse of life as a local. A guest favourite, the 12-night Cannes to Lisbon itinerary on Royal Clipper, spans the Western Mediterranean and visits two continents, with ports of call in France, Italy, Spain, Morocco and Portugal.
Beginning in 2023, all three ships in the Star Clippers’ fleet will be making the transatlantic journey. In April 2022 and 2023, Royal Clipper will make the 16-night eastbound crossing between Bridgetown, Barbados and Lisbon. There will also be a 28-day option that will sail all the way to Rome. Also doing an eastbound crossing is Star Clipper, departing April 2023 from St. John’s, Antigua for a 20-night sailing to Malaga, Spain. The westbound sailings include a 24-night Malaga to St. Maarten adventure, a 28-night journey between Cannes, France and Barbados, and a 15-night sailing from the Canary Islands to St. Maarten.
