Royal Clipper

Luxury Cruises with Star Clippers

The 227-passenger Royal Clipper is the flagship of the Star Clippers fleet. Launched in 2000, this is the largest true sailing ship in the world, with five masts, all square rigged and needless to say, an eye-catching sight when all 42 sails are raised and filled by the wind. Royal Clipper is modelled after the German tall ship Preussen, which was built in 1902 and was once the fastest ship in existence, although her fittings are considerably more contemporary, not least a small spa, with portholes under the water level, offering Thai massage and beauty treatments and a watersports platform that can be lowered so passengers can swim, kayak and windsurf from the ship.

Royal Clipper is quite magnificent inside, with curved staircases sweeping down to an elegant, three-tiered dining room, light filtering through the glass bottom of one of the three pools on deck that's directly over this beautiful atrium. There's an indoor Piano Bar leading to the al fresco Tropical Bar, a feature of all Star Clippers ships and the focal point of the social scene on board. Royal Clipper also has a library and an Observation Lounge where guest lecturers deliver presentations on anything from wine to marine biology. On deck, as well as lounging by the pools, guests are allowed to clamber into the bowsprit nets, lie back and gaze up at the billowing sails, or, weather permitting, climb the mast for a bird's eye view from the crow's nest.

Cabins are comfortable and surprisingly luxurious for a sailing ship, with air conditioning, DVD players, smartly appointed bathrooms, polished wood and nautical prints on the walls and in most cases, a porthole.

The ship follows the sun year-round, sailing the Caribbean in winter and gracing the ports of the Italian and French Rivieras in summer, as well as exploring the Adriatic. Wherever you sail, though, you'll feel a sense of pride at being on the most beautiful vessel in port.
