Cabrits remains an extinct volcano but once used to be its own island; however Douglas Bay and Prince Rupert Bay now connect it to Dominica. You’ll notice that a pair of hills called West and East Cabrit dominate the landscape. There are many hiking trails; you can find one that leads to the panoramic viewpoint at the top of West Cabrit and another to a restored 18th-century British garrison called Fort Shirley. There is a small museum where you can see a selection of artefacts and the underwater section of the park is perfect if you love to scuba dive and snorkel.

Falmouth Harbour, Antigua
Falmouth Harbour is a horseshoe-shaped bay and natural harbour within Saint Paul Parish on the south coast of the Caribbean island of Antigua. From the powder-white sands and clear turquoise seas to the red-roofed buildings and colourful flora, this colourful place will charm you from the moment you step ashore. English influences abound too thanks to the island being a former British Colony and an important British Naval port. Visit nearby St John's where you can explore Fort George, Admiral House, Clarence House, Nelson's Dockyard, and Fort Berkley. The island also boasts over 365 beaches, one for every day of the year!

No visit here would be complete without heading to the island's prettiest beach, Baie de Pompierre; its horseshoe shape is the perfect setting on a hot day. Alternatively, there's the secluded spot Anse Crawen or, if you love to snorkel, Anse à Cointe is a fantastic spot.

Background
Royal Clipper
Overview
The inspiration for the luxurious Royal Clipper was the 1904-built Preussen and this is now the largest, and only, five-masted sailing ship conceived since that time. With her 42 sails fully deployed she is truly an awesome sight! With state-of- the-art navigation systems, all the comforts you could wish for and 106 crew attending just 223 guests, service levels on board are truly impeccable. The 1,760 square metres of open deck and three swimming pools create a wonderfully spacious outdoor environment and the open-air bar is the ideal place to chat with your like-minded traveling companions, discussing how the ancient Romans lived in Pompeii, why Dubrovnik is called the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ and if the Amalfi coast really is Europe’s most beautiful. As the sun slips gently below the horizon in an explosion of reds and oranges, unwind, sip an aperitif and acknowledge that life really doesn’t get much better than this!

Food & Drink

Dine out on a comprehensive menu of international foods that are all prepared by our passionate, professional chefs. You’ll be able to taste delights from around the world and go on your own little culinary tour of the places you visit (and some that you don’t).

In line with the Star Clippers belief that cruises are more enjoyable without restrictions and formalities, we would not presume to dictate either your seating preferences or a dress code. On all of our ships, there are no set times at which you should dine and you are free to sit with whomever you like (including officers who are known to eat amongst the guests). Leave your black tie and ball gowns behind, relax, and make yourself at home within the casual elegance that is a Star Clippers cruise.

Entertainment

Up on deck, a couple watches the sun drop slowly into the sea as gulls circle one last time in the sky. Newly formed friends stand in the Piano Bar; deep in conversation and occasionally breaking into song when the chance presents itself.

In the Tropical Bar, a delicious cocktail is being prepared for an awaiting guest as they imagine tasting its cooling properties whilst the barman shakes together the contents. Other guests sit in the library, engrossed in their new favourite book, whilst many more are laughing and joking at the pool side. Could there be anything more relaxing than this?

It’s clear to see that this is a cruise ship like no other. On a Star Clippers cruise you are not restricted to enforced schedules, nor are you expected to follow anyone’s lead but your own. Your days, evenings and nights are yours to spend however you wish and nobody will tell you otherwise.

Upon docking at certain ports, local performers may be brought on board for your entertainment. This presents the perfect opportunity for you to immerse yourself in different cultures and enjoy an authentic taste of the arts and music from various different countries.

Get to know your fellow shipmates, who are likely to share the same passion for sailing as you do, whilst music from tropical lands fills your eardrums courtesy of the live band playing in the background.

The captain’s daily briefings should not be missed as they offer both intriguing stories and interesting information; while the ability of the crew to conjure up light-hearted fun makes your time with Star Clippers all the more enjoyable. The Knot tying and navigation classes that also take place give us a chance to show you what we have gleaned from many years of Star Clippers’ sailing heritage.

In fact, we have it on good authority from our passengers that it is the easy-going informality of a Star Clippers cruise that makes their time spent with us such a memorable and pleasurable experience.
