About Star Clipper

Star Clipper and her sister, Star Flyer, are both stars of the sea; gliding through the water like graceful swans and sitting proudly atop the rolling waves.

Although both four-masted ships, as opposed to five, they are surprisingly taller than Royal Clipper and possess just as much style as their illustrious cousin. However, they are both just 360 feet long and each carries only 170 guests in pampered comfort.

Star Clipper is a true clipper ship, reflecting her proud heritage in every inch of the polished brass and gleaming brightwork that graces her decks and superstructure. Step aboard this striking vessel and you’ll be greeted by a new generation of sailing culture. Here, the grand traditions of the past, which characterise what sailing is all about, exist alongside the comforts and amenities found on the contemporary cruise liners of today.

Don’t let this tribute to sailing’s past fool you though as Star Clipper is a modern ship through and through. She welcomes luxury-loving passengers from all over the world who hold the legacy and customs of the grand era close to their hearts yet yearn for a new and exciting adventure.

Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like travelling on a private yacht. You’ll never feel restricted or disorientated on any of our ships as our staff work tirelessly to meet your needs and make you feel comfortable.

There are six categories of generous staterooms; giving you plenty of choice when deciding which one suits you best, whilst the expansive decks give the whole ship an uncluttered feel. In fact, you’ll find that, due to the small number of passengers on board and the spacious surroundings, both Star Clipper and Star Flyer offer more outdoor space per person than most conventional cruise ships.

The interior design of Star Clipper again harks back to nautical days gone by. Famous sailing ships are remembered in paintings that are hung on the walls, while teak and lustrous mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers’ proud maritime heritage.

Accommodation

There’s nothing so easy and pleasurable as falling asleep to the gentle rhythms of the ship and sea unless it’s awakening refreshed the next morning to a new-born day.

Like a fine resort, all the amenities are here; double bed or twin beds that can be converted to queen, marble lined bathroom, private safe, television video system and DVD player, direct dial telephone, hair dryer and comfortable furnishings.

The décor is tastefully traditional.

You’ll find the accoutrements of a classic yacht, where everything is ingeniously designed for comfort, ease and efficiency.

Entertainment

Clearly, this is not a cruise ship in the ordinary sense.

On Star Clippers, you will find that there are no rigid schedules. You are free to do as you wish with your days – and evenings.

Now, is there anything more relaxing than this?

Friends gather round the piano bar and join in singing a few favourites. And in the Tropical Bar, the bartender shakes a pitcher full of some delicious cooling concoction. Now, is there anything more relaxing than this?

An authentic taste of the local music and arts

To entertain you at certain ports, we invite local performers, folk groups or musicians to liven up your evenings on board and our crew members are always ready to entertain you with games and nautical activities.

So rather than enduring another Broadway show, you can enjoy the conviviality of fellow shipmates while a live band plays tropical tunes from a real paradise.

The Captain and crew

The Captain and crew are superb improvisers of the kind of light-hearted fun you’ll only find on Star Clippers. The Captain’s daily briefing on deck is wonderfully informative and a chance to hear some great story-telling as well.

Onboard Entertainment

If your time isn't taken up by searching out distant lands from the crow’s nest or enjoying a lovingly prepared meal in the dining room; you can always take a seat in the Observation Lounge, find solitude in the Library, enjoy a drink in the Tropical Bar, or enjoy some live music in the Piano Bar.

Library

The library offers reference books , art books, and novels in several languages. There is also a selection of board games and comfortable seating so that you can relax and enjoy some quiet time if you so wish.

Tropical Bar

Enjoy a drink in the Tropical Bar

Sloop Shop

It is located on the Clipper Deck aft of the Dining Room. Head here when you need toothpaste, sunscreen, Internet & WiFi cards and all those other day-to-day items you can't do without. There is also a tasteful selection of cruise wear, souvenirs and gifts. If you need something and you don't see it displayed, please ask. They might just have it.

Dining

Clipper Dining Room

When you rise, help yourself to a continental breakfast with Parisian croissants or sweet Danish pastries. Or savour a full breakfast with fresh tropical fruit and crisp bacon, grilled sausage and omelettes 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 paradisical islands we frequent, you might also be treated to a succulent outdoor barbecue on shore.

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, complemented by a selection of equally fine wines.

You’ll find our service to be friendly and gracious, befitting 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 with 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.

Enrichment

Our passengers tell us that it’s the easy-going informality that makes a cruise with us so enjoyable.

Enjoy many activities on the outdoor decks, free water sports, yoga classes and various entertainment. In fact, our passengers tell us that it’s the easy-going informality of Star Clippers that makes a cruise with us so enjoyable and like no other.

Watersports

Sailing with Star Clippers is a unique experience!

Explore new horizons, push your boundaries & enjoy a range of nautical activities! Make the most of our complimentary water sports program and learn a wide variety of nautical activities, supervised by our officers & crew.

Water sports for all tastes!

On beach stops our sports team can offer you: kayaks, paddle boards and dinghies as well as water skiing and windsurfing. Enjoy your favourite water sports during the cruise or take the opportunity to try something new.

Snorkelling

Close your eyes and imagine you are soaking up the sun on a white sandy beach in the Caribbean; crystal clear waters invite you to explore the underwater world of coral reefs and colourful tropical fish. Star Clippers hands out snorkelling equipment to all passengers upon arrival on board, so all you have to do is dive in and explore.

Sailor for a day!

Life on the ocean is one big adventure! Discover the sailing techniques used by our marine experts. Our crew will help you to hoist the sails, climb the mast, and tie marine knots. You will learn the names of the different sails and how to use a sextant. When evening comes and the velvety darkness is punctuated by stars, our officers will show you how to navigate at night with the help of the stars.

Exclusive Sailing Destinations

Star Clippers takes you to the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and Southeast Asia, far from all the crowds and congested harbours.

Our tenders or zodiac service allow you to go ashore in comfort and disembark either in port or directly on the beach, so you are free to set off and explore each destination. On Royal Clipper, a specially designed marine platform can be lowered to sea level, so you can enjoy water sports directly from the ship!

Health & Fitness

Swimming Pools

Star Clippers' ships have two or three swimming pools located on the Sun Deck. When the weather permits, they are filled with sea water.
