Fancy cruising under canvas?

Star Clippers operates three of the world’s largest and tallest sailing vessels. Visiting ports often untouched by larger cruise ships and offering passengers the activities, amenities and atmosphere are said to rival a private super yacht.
Passengers can enjoy the romance of sailing on board a true tall ship in a relaxed atmosphere with high standards of service provided by an attentive crew.
All three ships have expansive teak decks, swimming pools, informal dining, a convivial Tropical Bar on deck and a comfortable piano bar and are large enough to offer first class accommodation and dining, but small enough to call into intimate ports, untouched by large cruise ships.
Now as part of an ongoing programme to keep these classic tall ships looking fresh and bright, two have been refurbished to replace all of the soft furnishings and give the vessels a renewed look.
Royal Clipper underwent a two-week dry dock in Trinidad in January, during which the elegant dining room received new carpeting and seating upholstery and the corridors received new carpet.
Guest cabins were given an update with new paint and a bathroom rejuvenation. Wood panelling and accents in the public areas were treated to a fresh coat of varnish.
Star Flyer underwent a dry dock in which the ship’s soft furnishings were replaced, including new carpet in most public areas and new seating cushions the dining room and library.

All of the cabins and public areas received fresh paint and new artwork in the nautical theme that is found in the décor throughout the vessel.
The two smaller ships, Star Flyer and Star Clipper, take 170 passengers each, with a crew of 70, while Royal Clipper carries 227 with a crew of 106.
Royal Clipper will be sailing in the Mediterranean this summer and Star Flyer in the Baltic.
