Cruise with Star Clippers

With their billowing sails, sun-warmed teak deck and gleaming mahogany rails, the Star Clippers fleet – comprising Royal Clipper, Star Clipper and Star Flyer - provides an enchanting nautical experience that will leave a long-lasting impression.

The Fleet

The Star Clippers fleet comprises three sensational vessels: Star Clipper, Royal Clipper and Star Flyer.
