This picture above gets many a conversation started.
"Ohhhh, I want to do that!"
I agree. Nothing like cruising along beautiful sunny coastlines, hearing the sound of waves below and the winds above filling out the sails. And one can't forget simply relaxing on the teak decks of a tall sail ship.
A perfect vacation for someone, who, like me, loves the water and sailing but wouldn't dare try to sail anything on their own (at least not with extensive training or hiring a captain), and especially not over greater distances.
Nope. I would much prefer an experienced crew taking me to quiet, hidden gem ports, comfortable cabins, fine dining and the opportunity to think I'm working by helping raise the sails or steering the ship. Almost like having my own private yacht, but travelling with a few like minded people like me.
Come, step on board and forget everyday life for a week or two!
Three Star Clipper ships offer unique sailing adventures in the Caribbean, the Far East (Thailand, Bali and Singapore), eastern and western Mediterranean.
The Royal Clipper, their largest ship with 227 guests, has made the Guinness Book of World Records, being the largest square-rigged ship in service. With 5 masts, it 42 sails (54,000 square feet!). The two smaller ships, the Star Clipper and Star Flyer, each carry 170 guests. They have 16 sails (covering just over 36,000 square feet).
Spring, summer, fall and winter itineraries are waiting for you, most designed to take advantage of the trade winds so you are truly sailing with the power of the wind.
This is authentic sailing.
Small ship cruising is my specialty.
And a cruise is waiting for you. Let's get your adventure started today.
