Star Clipper: ROMANCE THE WIND ABOARD A TALL SHIP.

They are the stars of the sea. Star Clipper and Star Flyer are as fleet as the wind and as graceful as swans.

These are true clipper ships reflecting their proud heritage in every inch of their polished brass and gleaming brightwork. Step aboard these unique vessels and discover a new age of sail, where the traditions of the past are happily married to the comforts and amenities of the present day. Star Clipper and Star Flyer are modern cruise ships in every way, created for luxury-loving passengers who also love the traditions and romance of the legendary era of sailing ships. Star Clipper and Star Flyer are both 360 feet long and each carries just 170 guests in pampered comfort.

Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like traveling on a private yacht. You’ll never feel confined on Star Clipper or Star Flyer. Each ship offer spacious accommodations and expansive teak decks with ample space and not one, but two swimming pools. In fact, you’ll find that these ships offer more outdoor space per passenger than most conventional cruise ships.

The décor of Star Clipper is reminiscent of the grand age of sail. Antique prints and paintings of famous sailing ships please the eye, while teak and gleaming mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clipper proud nautical heritage.
Star Clipper feature open-seating dining in an elegantly appointed dining room, our convivial indoor-outdoor Tropical Bar and Piano Bar, and an Edwardian style library where a Belle Époque fireplace glows with a warmth that reflects the friendliness and enthusiasm of Star Clipper hospitable officers and crew.

The Informal Elegance of Star Clipper.
Up on deck, a couple watch the sun drop slowly into the sea as gulls circle one last time in the sky. Friends gather round the Piano Bar and join in singing a few favorites. And in the Tropical Bar, the bartender shakes a pitcher full of some delicious cooling concoction. Now, is there anything more relaxing than this?

Clearly this is not a cruise ship in the ordinary sense. On Star Clipper, you will find that there are no rigid schedules. You are free to do as you wish with your days – and evenings. To entertain you, we bring local performers on board to give passengers an authentic taste of the local music and arts.

So rather than enduring another Broadway revue, you can enjoy the conviviality of fellow shipmates while a live band plays tropical tunes from a real paradise. The Captain and crew are superb improvisers of the kind of light-hearted fun you’ll only find on Star Clipper. The Captain’s daily briefing on deck is wonderfully informative and a chance to hear some great story-telling as well. And there are other events and activities, such as knot tying and navigation classes, that have evolved from Star Clipper sailing heritage. In fact, our passengers tell us that it’s the easy-going informality of Star Clipper that makes a cruise with us so enjoyable.

Star Clipper: Continental Cuisine. Culinary Delights.
Our inspired chefs make dining aboard a delightful culinary adventure with an international menu of foods from the far corners of the earth.
When you rise, help yourself to a continental breakfast with croissants, toasted English muffins or sweet Danish pastries. Or savor a full breakfast with fresh tropical fruits and crisp bacon, grilled sausage, smoked salmon and omelettes cooked to order in the dining room. At lunch, a marvelous buffet of seafood, salads and grilled favorites awaits your pleasure. If the day includes a stop at one of the paradisiacal islands we frequent, you might also be treated to a festive outdoor barbecue on shore.

When evening comes, our elegantly appointed dining room, featuring a splendid collection of paintings of sailing ships, becomes the setting for the chef’s finest culinary presentations, designed to please the eye and the palate. And complemented by equally fine wines. You’ll find our service to be friendly and gracious, befitting a tasteful restaurant. Of course, we would not presume to dictate your seating preferences. On all three ships, you are free to dine when and with whomever you wish – including officers, who join our guests in the dining room most nights. The dress code? No need for formal gowns and black tie, casual elegance is the order of the day and every single night.

Gracious Service. Rest Assured.

There’s nothing so easy and pleasurable as falling asleep to the gentle rhythms of the ship and sea – unless it’s awakening refreshed the next morning to a new-born day.

Like a fine resort, all the amenities are here: double bed or twin beds that can be converted to queen, marble bathroom, private safe, region TV/free multimedia DVD player (except in Category 6 cabins on Star Flyer and Star Clipper), direct-dial telephone, hairdryer and comfortable furnishings. The decor is tastefully traditional. You’ll find the accoutrements of a luxurious classic yacht, where everything is ingeniously designed for comfort, ease and efficiency. Burnished brass fittings and mahogany brightwork recall our nautical heritage. Soft natural fabrics reflect the colors of the sun, sea and sky. Prints of famous clipper ships and sailing yachts grace the walls. Everything is immaculately maintained and your steward knows exactly when to appear or disappear.

On Royal Clipper, 14 deluxe suites offer the ultimate in cruising comfort, with private verandah, whirlpool tub and 24-hour room service. All but six of her 98 cabins are outside, and for the ultimate indulgence, two 355-square-foot owner’s suites may be combined to accommodate up to eight guests.

Saturday 23 June 2018 Komodo National Park – Komodo, Indonesia
The park was founded in 1980 with the aim of preserving the unique Komodo dragon and its habitat. Komodo Island is the bleak and desolate domain of this highly aggressive reptile that looks like a relic from the age when dinosaurs walked the earth. The species is notoriously fierce and the “dragon” moniker is well deserved. The Komodo dragon which belongs to a once widespread order of monitor lizards now survives only on a handful of islands. This giant lizard can grow up to 3 metres in length and weigh as much as 150 kg. Like other monitor lizards they have tapered heads, visible ear-openings, a long slender neck, round pupils and eyelids and above all very powerful jaws.

Saturday 23 June 2018 Pink Beach – Komodo, Indonesia
Pink beach, or Pantai Merah, is one of only seven such beaches on the whole planet. The amazing colour comes from microscopic animals called Foraminifera which leave a red pigment on the coral reefs and the name Pantai Merah literally means red beach. Pink beach is bounded by turquoise blue sea and offers spectacular views of the surrounding area, including small islands, hills and mountains. It is said to be the best spot for snorkelling in Komodo National Park.

Sunday 24 June 2018 Waikelo – Sumba Island, Indonesia

Monday 25 June 2018 Wera – Sumbawa Island, Indonesia
Wera Sangiang Village in East Sumbawa is one of the few boat building villages in the world where traditional wooden boats are built without blueprints and using only hand tools.

The island also boats a gold and copper mine and a volcano. Mount Tambora’s eruption in 1815 was considered to be one of the most powerful and destructive volcanic explosions in human history.

Tuesday 26 June 2018 Satonda Island, Indonesia

The local people believe that the island is sacred and you can see offerings in the form of bits of coral hanging in the trees; these have been put there by pilgrims who visit the island in the hope of having their wishes granted. Satonda is surrounded by beautiful coral reefs with a large variety of tropical fish; to protect this unique underwater paradise the island was declared to be a Marine Nature Park in 1999.

Tuesday 26 June 2018 Labuan Haji – Moyo Island, Indonesia
Of the 124 bird species found in the region, 86 of them can be found on the island of Moya. These includes rare birds such as yellow-headed parrot and bird coral.
