Star Clippers offers sophisticated travelers the ultimate cruising vacation alternative – a tall ship “mega-yacht” experience aboard authentic re-creations of the classic sailing 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, the Star Clipper and the Star Flyer. The ships visit ports often untouched by larger cruise ships and offering passengers the activities, amenities and atmosphere of a private yacht. The ships are under full wind power and sail as much as possible. The 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.
