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 of a private yacht, Star
Clippers is recognized as one of the
premier specialty cruise lines. The
ships currently sail throughout the
Caribbean, the Mediterranean, Costa Rica
and the Panama Canal.
The Informal Elegance
of Star Clippers.
Up on deck, a couple watch the sun drop
slowly into the sea as gulls circle one
last time in the sky.
Friends gather round the Piano Bar and
join in singing a few favorites. And in
the Tropical Bar, the bartender shakes a
pitcher full of some delicious cooling
concoction. Now, is there anything more
relaxing than this?
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. To
entertain you, we bring local performers
on board to give passengers an authentic
taste of the local music and arts.
You’ll enjoy the conviviality of fellow
shipmates while a live band plays
tropical tunes from a real paradise. 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.
And there are other events and
activities during the day and night that
have evolved from Star Clippers’ sailing
heritage. In fact, our passengers tell
us that it’s the easygoing informality
of Star Clippers that makes a cruise
with us so special.
Our inspired chefs make dining aboard a
delightful culinary adventure with an
international menu of foods from the far
corners of the earth.
When you rise, help yourself to a
continental breakfast with croissants,
toasted English muffins or sweet Danish
pastries. Or savor a full breakfast with
fresh tropical fruits and crisp bacon,
grilled sausage, smoked salmon and
omelet's cooked to order in the dining
room. At lunch, a marvelous buffet of
seafood, salads and grilled favorites
awaits your pleasure. If the day
includes a stop at one of the
paradisiacal islands we frequent, you
might also be treated to a festive
outdoor barbecue on shore.
When evening comes, our elegantly
appointed dining room featuring a
splendid collection of paintings of
sailing ships becomes the setting for
the chef’s finest culinary
presentations, designed to please the
eye and the palate. All complemented by
equally fine wines. You’ll find our
service to be friendly and gracious,
befitting a sophisticated 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
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 each night.
Gracious Service. Rest Assured.
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
bathroom, private safe, television with
in-cabin video, DVD player, direct-dial
telephone, hairdryer and comfortable
furnishings. The decor is tastefully
traditional. You’ll find the
accouterments of a luxurious classic
yacht, where everything is ingeniously
designed for comfort, ease and
efficiency. Burnished brass fittings and
mahogany brightwork recall our nautical
heritage. Soft natural fabrics reflect
the colors of the sun, sea and sky.
Prints of famous clipper ships and
sailing yachts grace the walls.
Everything is immaculately maintained
and your steward knows exactly when to
appear or disappear.
On Royal Clipper, 14
deluxe suites offer the ultimate in
cruising comfort, with private verandah,
whirlpool tub and 24-hour room service.
All but six of her 98 cabins are
outside, and for the ultimate
indulgence, two 355 square foot owner’s
suites may be combined to accommodate up
to eight guests.
All in all, your Star Clippers cabin or
suite is a perfectly arranged abode for
day dreams and nights of blissful rest
