Multigenerational Sailing Adventures

Kids and Teens under 18 Cruise Free. Among the biggest trends in travel these days is multigenerational trips. Traveling around the world with parents, siblings, kids, grandkids, and dear family members can be a wonderful and enriching assortment of shared one in a lifetime experiences. What better way to discover the world with your loved ones on an authentic sailing ship?

On Star Clippers guests of all ages will fall in love with sailing. The wind in your hair, everyone will be mesmerized by the billowing sails on the tall masts, and will come aboard a Star Clippers ship and truly understand what it feels like to be transformed back to the golden age of sailing combined with modern luxury and the amenities of a private yacht. 

Families can fill their day with relaxation or unique activities such as knot tying, navigation classes, complimentary watersports (including kayaking, water skiing, Paddleboarding, snorkeling and more), climbing to the Crow’s Nest for a better view or relaxing in bow sprit to catch a glimpse of dolphins swimming beneath you.  Or feel free to pay a private visit to the Captain on the open bridge.  The library holds hundreds of books and movies, as well as games to provide additional entertainment — the choice is yours and each family member will step into a world where unique experiences flourish and new adventures await.

Families will also enjoy delectable cuisine in one unhurried seating and pampering services in a casually elegant atmosphere with plenty of seating for large or small families. You are free to dine when and with whomever you wish – including officers, who join our guests in the dining room most nights. No need for formal gowns and black tie, casual attire is the order of the day and every single night.

The ease of sailing on a Star Clippers ship makes it an appealing vacation option for the whole family. Travelers can see multiple destinations including ports often untouched by larger cruises, and each itinerary visits several countries, offering unforgettable cultural and historical and educational experience for kids, parents and grandparents alike.  While the destinations are always the highlight on our journey, the sailing experience is most definitely our encore performance.

Star Clippers’ fleet of three sailing ships provides the thrill of sailing on an authentic tall ship, an extensive water-sports program and exotic destinations that the largest ships can’t reach, with the cross-generation appeal. The ships’ smaller size — either 170 or 227 passengers — means families can have an intimate vacation experience without long lines and large crowds.

Plan your Star Clippers family trip today with even more savings. Kids under the age of 18 travel for free on select sailings this summer.  For more information on Star Clippers’ sailing adventures, visit www.starclippers.com.
