Review of Royal Clipper

The Royal Clipper cruise ship is a 5-masted steel-hulled and fully-rigged tall ship (sailing ship). It joined the fleet of Star Clippers in 2000. The vessel was modeled after the famous German windjammer Preussen (built 1902). This sail cruise ship was originally designed as a holiday cruiser for the coal miners from Gdansk Poland, under the name Gwarek (meaning "The Miner" in Old Polish).

Royal Clipper is listed as "the largest square-rigged ship in service" in the Guinness World Records book, with 5202 m2 (56000 ft2) of sails.

On select Yoga-themed fitness cruises, Star Clippers offers free daily meditation and yoga classes. The company also invites celebrity chefs to give themed cooking demonstrations. Royal Clipper's most thrilling onboard experience (performance) is climbing the rigging. The mast climbing is always supervised and takes place several times during a voyage (weather permitting).
