Star Clippers offer a cruise experience that is like no other. If you are looking for an adventure on the waves which includes the atmosphere and character of traditional sailing but still with the comfort and luxury found on most modern cruises; you have come to the right place. Our small ship cruises will provide the opportunity to meet new people, see new places and, most of all, create the holiday experience of a lifetime.
Feel the wind in your hair and the salty breeze in your face as you sail aboard what feels like your own private yacht. Our vessels provide a much more intimate experience than you may expect to find on board a contemporary cruise liner, and whilst the surroundings you find yourself in hark back to the ships of the nineteenth century, the superb, personable service will be on hand to make you feel right at home, wherever you are in the world.
We sail to some of the most picturesque and luxurious locations in the world; meaning that not only is your time at sea an inspiring experience, the ports you visit along the way are truly magnificent, too. From the Caribbean to the Panama Canal and the Mediterranean to Cuba, there is so much to see and do that you will never want your adventure cruise to come to an end.
Explore new lands, taking part in various shore excursions as you go, and indulge your passion for classic sailing on board our amazing Star Clippers cruises.
Our fleet is made up of three strikingly tall sailing ships which add an air of style and elegance to any cruise. These four and five-masted boats really do make a lasting impression on anyone who sales in them and will leave you feeling nostalgic for the days when these kinds of vessels ruled the oceans. Royal Clipper, the largest of the three and the largest ship of her kind, is joined by Star Clipper and Star Flyer in offering tall ship cruises to sailing and adventure enthusiasts all over the world.
In contrast to the historical feel of the ships, the facilities on board are as modern and stylish as ever. There are different categories of staterooms depending on your needs, all of which are equipped with en-suites, televisions, phones, DVD players, hair-dryers and a safe, and some cabins also have their own private veranda or open straight onto the deck. As well as these personal facilities, there are plenty more in terms of public areas which you can explore. Each ship has multiple swimming pools, a library, bar areas to relax and enjoy the delicious cuisine that is served daily, and Royal Clipper even has an observation lounge in which you can enjoy the passing scenery from the comfort of your chair.
