Star Flyer

If you’re taken by the spectacle and grandeur associated with the art of traditional sailing, but want to spend your holiday in the comfortable and luxurious confines offered by a conventional cruise, then a trip aboard Star Flyer is exactly what you are looking for. Her undeniably classical characteristics are a nod of appreciation to her predecessors, whilst her advanced navigation systems and refined finish prove she is by no means outdated.

With amble outdoor space for a full capacity of 170 guests and sizeable cabins, complete with all the mod-cons, you will never feel cramped aboard this excellent ship. In fact, because they abolish any rigid schedules or clothing and dining restrictions, you will feel as liberated as ever as the salty sea breeze rushes through your hair.

The general atmosphere is akin to that found on a private yacht, as everyone comes together to share their excitement for the adventures that await. Solitude can still be found however, either in the comfort of your personal stateroom or whilst immersed in a book from the onboard library.

Accommodation

There are seven stateroom grades available onboard Star Flyer, the majority of them with ocean views, some with verandas. Like a fine resort, all the amenities are here. The décor is tastefully traditional. You'll find accoutrements of a classic yacht, where everything is ingeniously designed for comfort, ease and efficiency. Burnished brass fittings and mahogany brightwork recall the line's nautical heritage. Soft natural fabrics reflect the colour of the sun, sea and sky. Prints of famous clipper ships and sailing yachts grace the walls. Everything is immaculately maintained and your stewards knows exactly when to appear. All in all, your Star Clippers cabin or suite is a perfectly arranged abode for daydreams and nights of blissful rest and relaxation.

Decks
Dining

The Clipper Dining Room is the only restaurant onboard the ship. Serving breakfast from 8-10am, lunch between 12-2pm, and à la carte dinner from 7.30-10pm. Guests are free to dine when and with whomever they wish - including with the officers, who join guests in the dining room most nights.

Entertainment

You are free to do as you wish with your days - and evenings. To entertain you at certain ports, locals are brought onboard to give passengers an authentic taste of the local music and arts. The Captain and crew are superb improvisers of the kind of light-hearted fun you'll only find on Star Clippers. There are other events and activities, such as the hilarious crab racing contest, that have evolved from Star Clippers' sailing heritage.
