Widen Your World and Sail Away with Star Clippers

Whether your idea of sailing brings up images of Russell Crowe in Master and Commander, or Johnny Depp in the Pirates of the Caribbean, our modern sailing yachts offer everything you’ve ever dreamed of in a casually elegant sailing adventure. The wind in your hair, as you are mesmerized by the billowing sails on the tall masts – invite you to 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.

Climbing the mast for a better view or relaxing in the net off the bow. Perhaps you’ll catch a glimpse of dolphins. Step into a world where unique experiences flourish and new adventures await like-minded, sophisticated travelers.

Our guests enjoy delectable cuisine in one unhurried seating and pampering services in a relaxed atmosphere. 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 elegance is the order of the day and every single night.

On Star Clipper ships, you find that there are no rigid schedules and no overwhelming sense that there’s not enough time. For our guests, time slows down and worries are left ashore. You are free to do as you wish with your days and evenings. Fill your day with activities or nothing at all, the choices are always yours to decide. The Captain’s daily briefing on deck is wonderfully informative and a chance to hear inspiring story’s from our enthusiastic leaders. Or feel free to pay a private visit to the Captain on the open bridge. And there are other events and activities, such as knot tying and navigation classes, that have evolved from Star Clippers’ sailing tradition.

While the destinations are always the highlight on our journey, visiting ports often untouched by larger cruise ships, and the entire sailing experience is our encore performance.

This summer, Star Clippers is offering itineraries in the Mediterranean onboard Royal Clipper and Star Flyer. This part of the world will amaze you with its natural beauty and centuries of history in its Old World charm. The taste of sweet green olive oil and fresh ripe tomatoes, the sound of carefree children laughing on sun-drenched beaches, countless yachts at anchor in picturesque harbors and so much more is just waiting on each awe-inspiring itinerary.
