  • Duration: 7 Nights
Overview

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.

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.
