The Star Clipper reflects a proud heritage in every inch of their polished brass and gleaming brightwork. Step aboard and discover a new age of sail, where the traditions of the past are happily married to the comforts and amenities of the present day.

Star Clipper ships are modern cruise ships in every way, created for luxury-loving passengers who also love the traditions and romance of the legendary era of sailing ships. Star Clipper is 115 metres long and each carries just 166 guests in pampered comfort. Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like travelling on a private yacht. You’ll never feel confined on Star Clipper.

The ship offers spacious accommodations and expansive teak decks with ample space and not one, but two swimming pools. In fact, you’ll find that the ship offers more outdoor space per passenger than most conventional cruise ships.

The decor of Star Clipper is reminiscent of the grand age of sail. Antique prints and paintings of famous sailing ships please your eye, while teak and gleaming mahogany rails are richly remindful of Star Clippers’ proud nautical heritage. There is also a library to enjoy.

All Star Clippers’ ships feature open-seating dining in an elegantly appointed dining room, plus the convivial indoor-outdoor Tropical Bar and Piano Bar, and an Edwardian style library where a Belle Époque fireplace glows with a warmth that reflects the friendliness and enthusiasm of Star Clippers’ hospitable officersand crew.

To entertain you at certain ports, local performers, folk groups or musicians to liven up your evenings on board and the crew members are always ready to entertain you with games and nautical activities. The Captain’s daily briefing on deck is wonderfully informative and a chance to hear some great story-telling as well.

Enjoy many activities on the outdoor decks, free water sports, yoga classes and various entertainment.

The rates include all meals, and transfers to each port of call. Port charges, excursions, and tips are extra.
