The Magic of a Tall Ship Cruise

Imagine exploring the most beautiful parts of the world on an authentic tall ship cruise.  A memory of the distant pass?  Nights spent in a teeny cabin?  Absolutely not! 

Today, sailing enthusiasts, passionate explorers, or the curious traveler can embrace the romance of sailing the world’s oceans and marry it with all of the comforts of a luxury yacht.  And, perhaps more importantly, discover unique parts of the world – off-the-beaten path Caribbean islands, historic Mediterranean cities, and exotic destinations in Southeast Asia – through a new lens.

Boutique cruise line Star Clippers boasts a fleet of three (and soon to be four) authentic, yet modern tall ships.  Constructed by European craftsmen as fitting successors to the tall ships of old, Star Clippers’ ships are fully sail powered.  Each boasts spacious, comfortable staterooms, gourmet dining, a friendly crew, swimming pools, and a broad expanse of open deck where you can simply relax under a figurative cathedral of sail.

No matter which ship or which itinerary you choose, traveling on board a small sailing ship offers an intimate experience not possible on larger ships.  While on board, you can embrace your inner sailor and help raise the sails or learn to tie a proper not.  Or, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, spend the afternoon relaxing on the bowsprit net, or even climb the mast to the Crow’s Nest for a panoramic view, not available anywhere else in the world. 

Highlights of a voyage can include visits to smaller, uncrowded ports that are inaccessible to large ships, the opportunity to visit the ship’s bridge and learn firsthand from an officer about the intricacies of tall ship sailing, or just enjoying a glass of wine as the sun sets aboard the nearly silent ship under sail.
