Star Clipper joined the Star Clippers' fleet in July 1991 as the sister ship to Star Flyer. This four-masted ship sets sail with a maximum of 170 guests onboard and offers you an authentic nautical experience. From the expansive teak decks and polished brass to the spacious and well-equipped cabins; luxury is the key to life onboard. The hospitable crew and officers are also close at hand to add to your tall ship cruising experience.
Immerse yourself in shipboard life, whether it is visiting the bridge, helping the crew to unfurl the sails at sea, or climbing the mast to the Crow's Nest for picture-perfect views. Lie on the bowsprit at the prow of the ship, soak up the sun by the two pools, or lose yourself in a book fireside in the cosy Edwardian-style library.
Explore Europe and worldwide destinations in comfort aboard Star Clipper.
Discover destination-inspired cuisine made from fresh, locally-sourced ingredients in Star Clipper's dining room. Start your day with a light continental breakfast of pastries, croissants and English muffins, or tuck into freshly-cooked bacon, sausages, and eggs. Lunch is buffet-style with seafood, salads and grilled delights on the menu or perhaps an occasional outdoor barbecue. Dine at a time to suit in the evening; when you can you opt for a quiet table for two or eat at a larger table with new-found friends.
The indoor-outdoor Tropical Bar and adjoining Piano Bar are both a hive of activity from dawn until dusk. Unwind here with your morning cup of coffee or sip cocktails and socialise in the evening after dinner.
The Captain's daily briefing on deck is a round-up of the day and reveals the wonders of your upcoming ports of call. Local performers come aboard at some ports to entertain you and there is also live music in the Tropical and Piano Bars to bring your day to a close in style.
