Star Clipper advice!

5 posts in this topic

Hi has anyone had any experience with Star Clippers? I was hoping for some more information about their ships, Food on board, Accomadation and information about what they are like for excursions and if they offer any destinations that are quite remote?. Any Pics would be great also if anyone has any- i cant seem to find much info on them!

I haven't sailed with them myself but my colleague at work recently spent time in the Caribbean with them and loved it. She said it was one of the best cruises she has done, just for something completely different. The photos were amazing.

Hi there 

 

We have sailed with Star Clippers quite a lot and have been on all three ships.  The food is great, we love snorkelling and the great thing about Star Clippers is they take you at regular intervals on the tenders for no extra charge to snorkel. We also had a go at water skiing but weren't very good!  Our first cruise with them was in Thailand 2008 and it was absolutely perfect in every way, the cruise director was super organised and helpful, the crew were great and we made some lovely friends. We have booked to return there in January 2017.

 

The passengers are mainly european so its very laid back, only about 150 passengers on the two smaller ones, although you get more americans / canadians on the caribbean trips.  The only disappointing cruise we have had with them was week 2 of the new Cuba itinerary and I'm afraid it wasn't organised very well at all - long tender times to shore, hardly any snorkelling trips and unfortunately we were ill for part of the trip. (I believe it has been changed now)

 

The feeling you get when whipping along under sail is fantastic and I haven't experienced it on any other cruises that we have been on, so if you like laid back but with good food and service then and total relaxation then this is the cruise line for you.

 

PS - we also like Windstar cruises they are fabulous and really look after their passengers but I call it sanitised sailing as its a little more formal, mainly Americans / Canadians but the food is superb and the crews are the best i have encountered.  Take a look at them also.
