The small-ship cruise company Star Clippers announced the launch of its newest Sailing Collection brochure detailing the company’s authentic sailing itineraries around the world from April 2021 through March 2023.
The fleet of 3 tall ships sails year-round, with itineraries in the Mediterranean, Caribbean, and Southeast Asia along with Atlantic Ocean crossings.
Passengers booking any April 2021-March 2023 voyage receive 65% off brochure pricing, complimentary pre-paid gratuities, a stateroom upgrade valid for categories 2-6, and onboard credit of up to US$300 per cabin depending on the category booked. The offer is valid on bookings made by December 31.
During the upcoming cruise season the line’s namesake vessel, Star Clipper, will start sailing in the Mediterranean for the 2022 season, marking the first time since 2016 that all 3 Star Clippers cruise ships will sail together in this part of the globe. Star Clipper will sail on a special itinerary departing from Safaga, Egypt in April 2022 and cruising through the Suez Canal. Once back in the Mediterranean, the ship will offer various itineraries including the 7-day Yachtman’s Paradise between Istanbul and Athens (Piraeus) as well as the favourite roundtrips from Rome (Civitavecchia) and Cannes between May-October.
A variety of cruises around Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Cambodia, and Borneo are available for booking before the Star Clipper ship completes the 2021-2022 season in Thailand and sails to Europe.
Star Flyer and Royal Clipper continue to sail in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, with new itineraries. A 7-night Greek Island Gems itinerary sailing roundtrip from Athens visits lesser-known Greek ports like Milos Island and Halki Island. Two 10- and 11-night voyages between Athens and Venice call on Katakolon as well as popular ports like Korcula, Dubrovnik, and Kotor.
Grand Prix Sailings are back for 2021-2022, with a pair of Royal Clipper itineraries sailing to Monaco. The round trip from Cannes is timed to coincide with Grand Prix Trials, while the itinerary out of Cannes to Rome puts guests in Monaco for Grand Prix Finals.
Star Clippers’ tall ships are also due to visit remote islands and ports the large ships cannot get to. The 2021-2022 seasons bring new ports of call, including Salt Whistle Bay (Mayreau island, Grenadines), during Royal Clippers’ 2021 Christmas Cruise. And in 2022, Royal Clipper offers the opportunity for passengers to enjoy the Mardi Gras festivities on Martinique and experience its French-meets-Caribbean culture.
