Star Clippers operates three of the world's largest and tallest sailing vessels. The three Tall Ships, Royal Clipper, Star Clipper & Star Flyer visit ports often untouched by larger cruise ships and offer passengers the activities, amenities and atmosphere of a private yacht. Star Clippers is recognised as one of the premier specialist cruise lines and has recently won three 2011 World Travel Awards.
Clearly this is not cruising in the ordinary sense. On Star Clippers, you will find that there are no rigid schedules. You are free to do as you wish with your days – and evenings. To entertain you, they bring local performers on board to give passengers an authentic taste of the local music and arts.
You’ll enjoy the conviviality of fellow shipmates while a live band plays tropical tunes from a real paradise. The Captain and crew are superb improvisers of the kind of light-hearted fun you’ll only find on Star Clippers. The Captain’s daily briefing on deck is wonderfully informative, and a chance to hear some great story-telling as well. And there are other events and activities during the day and night that have evolved from Star Clippers’ sailing heritage. In fact, their passengers tell us that it’s the easygoing informality of Star Clippers that makes a cruise with them so special.
