Star Clippers offers sophisticated travelers the ultimate vacation alternative - a tall ship genuine sailing experience aboard authentic re-creations of the classic clipper ships that ruled the waves during the 19th century.
Star Clippers operates three of the world’s largest and tallest sailing vessels, the Royal Clipper, Star Clipper and Star Flyer, and in late 2018 a fourth brand-new clipper ship will join the fleet--the Flying Clipper. These majestic ships visit quaint ports often untouched by larger cruise ships, and offer guests the activities, amenities and atmosphere of a private yacht. The ships are under full wind power and sail as much as possible. Glorious masts and billowing sails make it clear from the start that you are embarking on a special voyage.
On Star Clippers you are encouraged to help raise the sails, learn how to tie knots, visit the open bridge, lay in the bowsprit net-suspended above the rushing sea, and most unique of all, climb the mast to the Crow’s Nest for a stunning panoramic view. Or just relax in casual elegance and enjoy sailing the high seas.
During the winter and spring months, the Royal Clipper and Star Flyer sail throughout the tropical Caribbean and Panama Canal. The ships reposition to the Mediterranean for the summer and fall seasons, sailing breathtaking itineraries to the Eastern and Western Med. Star Clipper will spend November through April in exotic Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, followed by journeys from the forested volcanic island of Bali, sailing throughout Indonesia in Summer 2018 from May to October.
