Star Clipper and her sister ship Star Flyer are as fleet as the wind and as graceful as swans. These are true clipper ships, reflecting their proud heritage in every inch of polished brass and gleaming brightwork.
Step aboard these unique vessels and discover a new age of sail, where the traditions of the past are happily married to the comforts and amenities of the present. Star Clipper and Star Flyer are modern cruise ships in every way, created for comfort-loving passengers who also love the traditions and romance of the legendary era of sailing ships.
Star Clipper and Star Flyer are both 360 feet long and each carries just 170 guests in pampered comfort. Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like travelling on a private yacht. You'll never feel confined, as each ship offers pleasingly spacious accommodation and expansive teak decks with ample space for relaxing and play. In fact, you'll find that these ships offer more outdoor space per passenger than most conventional cruise ships.
The d'cor of Star Clipper and Star Flyer is reminiscent of the grand age of sail. Antique prints and paintings of famous sailing ships please the eye, while teak and gleaming mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers' proud nautical heritage.
Enjoy our convivial indoor-outdoor Tropical Bar and Piano Bar, and Edwardian style library where a Belle 'poque fireplace glows with a warmth that reflects the friendliness and en
Our inspired chefs make dining aboard a delightful culinary adventure with an international menu of foods from the far corners of the earth.
When you rise, help yourself to a continental breakfast with Parisian croissants, toasted English muffins or sweet Danish pastries, or savor a full breakfast with fresh tropical fruits and crisp bacon, grilled sausage, smoked salmon and omelettes cooked to order in the dining room.
When evening comes, our elegantly appointed dining room becomes the setting for the chef's finest culinary presentations, designed to please the eye and the palate, complimented by a selection of equally fine wines. You'll find our service to be friendly and gracious, as befits a tasteful restaurant. Of course, we would not presume to dictate your seating preferences.
On all three ships, you are free to dine when and with whomever you wish, including our officers, who join our guests in the dining room most nights.
The dress code: No need for formal gowns and black tie, casual elegance is the order of the day and every single night.
At lunch, a marvellous buffet of seafood, salads and grilled favorites awaits your pleasure. If the day includes a stop at one of the paradisical islands we frequent, you might also be treated to a succulent outdoor barbecue on shore.
A windsurfer traces a zig-zag wake over dancing wave tops. A snorkeller floats over a garden blooming with purple and rose coral. A diver plays tag with a school of clown fish darting in and out of an underwater wreck.
On Star Clippers, the day proceeds at your own pace, whatever that may be.
Indeed, the very notion of a rigid agenda of activities is foreign to our cruises. Join the Captain on the always-open bridge as he plots the course for the next landfall. Learn how to splice a line, reef a sail or tie a square knot. Cool off with a dip in one of the pools, or unwind with a cool drink and your favorite song in the piano bar. Discover history and fascinating cultures on exciting shore excursions in our exotic ports.
If it's a beach day, you can swim, windsurf, water-ski, sail a Sunfish, ride a banana boat or explore in a Zodiac. Our sports staff will be happy to offer assistance, should you require it.
On Royal Clipper, a unique marina platform lowers to sea level, giving you instant access to watersports activities. We'll take you to remote reefs, underwater wrecks and blue lagoons where marine species are in abundance. You can be confident that your environmentally friendly sailing ship will leave the world's pristine places as clean and unpolluted as when it arrived. Whether you elect to glide among the emerald-clad jewels of the Caribbean, enjoy the incomparable adventure of an epic ocean crossing, be beguiled by the ancient, sun-warmed ports of the Mediterranean or be intrigued by the mysteries of the Far East and Central America, each and every voyage aboard Star Clippers will be a little bit different from the one before and/or after.
