Experience genuine tall ship cruising
There’s cruising – and there is sailing. Aboard Star Clippers, here is your chance to experience something of life aboard a genuine tall ship, yet still enjoy many of the comforts of modern cruise ships.
Star Clippers currently have three vessels in the fleet, the 170-passenger twins Star Clipper and Star Flyer, and the largest sailing ship in the world, the five-masted Royal Clipper. The line has just announced plans to build a larger 300-passenger ship, due for delivery in 2017.
Aboard Star Clipper and Star Flyer, the 85 cabins are arranged across four decks in six categories and are similar in size, and amenities, with yacht-like décor and comfort. The eight Category 1 cabins open onto the deck, but most vary only slightly in size and layout with the largest being 12sqm. The biggest distinguishing feature between categories is location on the ship. The higher the cabin category, the higher or more central they might be located on board.
Star Clippers ships currently operate in the Mediterranean and Caribbean with plans to return Star Clipper to her old sailing ground of Phuket late in 2016 for five months each year.
