Informal elegance with Star Clippers cruises
This is not a cruise ship in the ordinary sense... harnessing the power of the wind with billowing cream coloured sails you’ll gently navigate from port to port. You could almost imagine yourself back in time, sailing in the nineteenth century, but with all the benefits of twenty-first century modern luxuries on board.
Sailing aboard Star Clippers feels like being on your own private yacht, providing a much more intimate experience than you may expect to find with a superb personal service that will make you feel right at home. Why not become a shipmate and lend a hand hoisting the sail, or climb the mast for panoramic vistas from the crow's nest? Alternatively, enjoy the day by relaxing in the nets or by one of the pools, or if you’re feeling energetic take out one of the ship’s kayaks and explore the bay.
The crew are very approachable and the Captain’s daily briefing on deck is wonderfully informative and a chance to hear some great storytelling as well. Enjoy the rhythms of folkloric shows from local entertainers who join the ship at featured ports, or relax on the top deck amongst friends old and new, watching the grand sails create a picturesque silhouette against the beautiful backdrop of sea and setting sun. With no rigid schedules, you’re free to do as you wish with your days and evenings and Star Clippers’ passengers always say it’s the easygoing informality of Star Clippers that makes a cruise with them so special.
When you rise, help yourself to a continental breakfast or savour a full breakfast cooked to order in the dining room. At lunch, a marvellous buffet of seafood, salads and grilled favourites awaits your pleasure. If the day includes a stop at one of the paradise-like islands, you may also enjoy a barbecue ashore.
The elegantly appointed dining room awaits your company come evening. Prints of famous Star Clipper ships and sailing yachts grace the walls; the perfect backdrop to the chef’s finest culinary presentations, designed to please the eye and the palate. All dishes are complemented by equally fine wines.
Your suite on board is comfortably furnished with either a twin or a double bed, a marble bathroom, televisions, and a DVD player. The decor is tastefully traditional. You’ll find the accoutrements of a luxurious classic yacht, where everything is ingeniously designed for comfort, ease and efficiency.
Burnished brass fittings and mahogany brightwork recall Star Clipper's nautical heritage. Everything is immaculately maintained and your steward is responsive to your needs.
