Star Flyer

Star Clipper & Star Flyer: 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 115 metres long and each carries just 166 guests in pampered comfort. Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like travelling on a private yacht. You’ll never feel confined on Star Clipper and Star Flyer.

Each ship offers 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 decor of Star Clipper and Star Flyer is reminiscent of the grand age of sail. Antique prints and paintings of famous sailing ships please your eye, while teak and gleaming mahogany rails are richly remindful of Star Clippers’ proud nautical heritage.

All Star Clippers’ ships 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 Clippers’ hospitable officers

and crew.

Unique Features

Star Clipper and her sister ship Star Flyer boasts a traditional four-masted sailing ship design. Offering modern cruising facilities that will please passengers from all over the world, they have a distinctly luxury feel despite their smaller size.


Gratuities on the ship are not included in the cruise fare and are at your discretion. We suggest €8 per day and per person. Gratuities are divided among the waiters in the dining room and the stewards. You can pay these gratuities at the end of the cruise by credit card, indicating the amount you wish to give (a form will be placed in your cabin) or in cash placed in an envelope, deposited in the box near the Purser’s Office.

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 lined bathroom, private safe, television video system and DVD player, direct dial telephone, hair dryer and comfortable furnishings.

The décor is tastefully traditional.

You’ll find the accoutrements of a classic yacht, where everything is ingeniously designed for comfort, ease and efficiency. 

Star indulgence

On Star Clipper and Star Flyer, 8 deluxe deck cabins offer intimate cruising comfort, with marble baths, whirlpool tubs and doors that open onto deck. All but six of the ship’s 83 cabins are outside, and for a relaxing indulgence, a 237-square-foot Owner's Suite offers a separate sitting area, minibar, marble bathroom with whirlpool and room service.


Our inspired chefs make dining aboard a delightful culinary adventure with an international menu of foods from the corners of the Earth.


Clearly, this is not a cruise ship in the ordinary sense.

On Star Clippers, you will find that there are no rigid schedules. You are free to do as you wish with your days – and evenings.

Now, is there anything more relaxing than this?

Friends gather round the piano bar and join in singing a few favourites. And in the Tropical Bar, the bartender shakes a pitcher full of some delicious cooling concoction. Now, is there anything more relaxing than this?

An authentic taste of the local music and arts

To entertain you at certain ports, we invite local performers, folk groups or musicians to liven up your evenings on board and our crew members are always ready to entertain you with games and nautical activities.

So rather than enduring another Broadway show, you can enjoy the conviviality of fellow shipmates while a live band plays tropical tunes from a real paradise.

The Captain and crew

The Captain and crew are superb improvisers of the kind of light-hearted fun you’ll only find on Star Clippers. The Captain’s daily briefing on deck is wonderfully informative and a chance to hear some great story-telling as well.
