Introduction

Star Clipper and her sister, Star Flyer, are both stars of the sea; gliding through the water like graceful swans and sitting proudly atop the rolling waves.

Although both four-masted ships, as opposed to five, they are surprisingly taller than Royal Clipper and possess just as much style as their illustrious cousin. However, they are both just 360 feet long and each carries only 170 guests in pampered comfort.

Star Clipper is a true clipper ship, reflecting her proud heritage in every inch of the polished brass and gleaming brightwork that graces her decks and superstructure. Step aboard this striking vessel and you’ll be greeted by a new generation of sailing culture. Here, the grand traditions of the past, which characterise what sailing is all about, exist alongside the comforts and amenities found on the contemporary cruise liners of today.

Don’t let this tribute to sailing’s past fool you though as Star Clipper is a modern ship through and through. She welcomes luxury-loving passengers from all over the world who hold the legacy and customs of the grand era close to their hearts yet yearn for a new and exciting adventure.

Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like travelling on a private yacht. You’ll never feel restricted or disorientated on any of our ships as our staff work tirelessly to meet your needs and make you feel comfortable.

There are six categories of generous staterooms; giving you plenty of choice when deciding which one suits you best, whilst the expansive decks give the whole ship an uncluttered feel. In fact, you’ll find that, due to the small number of passengers on board and the spacious surroundings, both Star Clipper and Star Flyer offer more outdoor space per person than most conventional cruise ships.

The interior design of Star Clipper again harks back to nautical days gone by. Famous sailing ships are remembered in paintings that are hung on the walls, while teak and lustrous mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers’ proud maritime heritage.

Dress Code

Fire Safety

While the ship was constructed with modern materials, that are either fire-retardant or flame-proof, fire remains a risk aboard any vessel. Please observe some simple safety rules:

  • Do not smoke inside your cabin
  • Do not throw cigarette butts overboard
  • Do not light candles, oil lights or similar devices in your cabin

Lifeboat Drills

International Maritime Law requires a lifeboat drill to take place at the beginning of each cruise. All guests must attend this compulsory and important exercise. During the drill, all ship’s services will be suspended.

Your assigned lifeboat station, the location of life jackets and the signal for lifeboat and fire drills are clearly explained on the emergency card posted on your cabin’s door. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the safety instructions it contains. When the alarm is sounded, put on your life jacket according to the instructions given over the public address system. An officer will direct you to your boat station, answer any questions you might have and check that your jacket is properly secured.

Your close attention during this drill is of paramount importance for your safety.

Lost & Found
On the last night of your cruise, we suggest you do a full review of your belongings. Check in the safe, under your bed, in the closet and drawers to ensure everything has been packed. Star Clippers cannot be held responsible for items left onboard.
Medical Services
A Registered Nurse is either on staff or is available from shore. In addition, the ship’s officers are qualified in administering first aid. Should a passenger require hospital treatment, the ship is almost always near a medical facility on shore. Passengers requiring prescription medicine are advised to bring them onboard. Only over-the-counter medications are available at the Sloop Shop.
Safety Rules

It is essential that you take certain precautions while onboard. Here are some basic rules:

  • Use appropriate ashtrays for cigarette butt ends and used matches. Do not throw cigarettes or cigars over the side of the ship; if blown back onto the ship, they may cause a fire. Never smoke in your cabin.
  • Walk, never run, and be especially careful on wet or slippery decks.
  • Ladies are advised to wear low-heeled shoes, especially on deck.
  • Children must not be allowed to run or play unattended on deck, in corridors, on stairways, or near the swimming pool

In the event of rough weather:

  • Do not stroll about the ship unnecessarily
  • Hold on to hand rails in passageways and stairways
  • Doors should be latched during heavy seas. Use the handles and never hold onto a door by its frame as the ship’s movement may cause it to close on your hand.
  • If there is unsecured baggage in your cabin, call your steward for assistance
  • Secure items in your bathroom and on your bureau
Smoking Policy
Passengers can smoke in designated areas on deck.

Entertainment

Up on deck, a couple watches the sun drop slowly into the sea as gulls circle one last time in the sky. Newly formed friends stand in the Piano Bar; deep in conversation and occasionally breaking into song when the chance presents itself.

In the Tropical Bar, a delicious cocktail is being prepared for an awaiting guest as they imagine tasting its cooling properties whilst the barman shakes together the contents. Other guests sit in the library, engrossed in their new favourite book, whilst many more are laughing and joking at the pool side. Could there be anything more relaxing than this?

It’s clear to see that this is a cruise ship like no other. On a Star Clippers cruise you are not restricted to enforced schedules, nor are you expected to follow anyone’s lead but your own. Your days, evenings and nights are yours to spend however you wish and nobody will tell you otherwise.

Upon docking at certain ports, local performers may be brought on board for your entertainment. This presents the perfect opportunity for you to immerse yourself in different cultures and enjoy an authentic taste of the arts and music from various different countries.

Get to know your fellow shipmates, who are likely to share the same passion for sailing as you do, whilst music from tropical lands fills your eardrums courtesy of the live band playing in the background.

The captain’s daily briefings should not be missed as they offer both intriguing stories and interesting information; while the ability of the crew to conjure up light-hearted fun makes your time with Star Clippers all the more enjoyable. The Knot tying and navigation classes that also take place give us a chance to show you what we have gleaned from many years of Star Clippers’ sailing heritage.

In fact, we have it on good authority from our passengers that it is the easy-going informality of a Star Clippers cruise that makes their time spent with us such a memorable and pleasurable experience.
