(PRESS RELEASE)_Miami, FL, November 2023 – Star Clippers has announced they are now taking bookings on sailings through November 2025, including the full summer season in the Mediterranean. Star Clippers fleet of three tall ships sail year-round, with itineraries in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, and Central America as well as Atlantic Ocean crossings.
Guests booking select 2025 sailings by December 31, 2023 will receive 10% off the cruise fare, an onboard credit of $100 per person, and a lovely bottle of champagne waiting for them in their cabin. Past guests will receive an additional 3% discount. Offer is valid for residents of North, Central and South America only. Restriction apply.
After a highly successful inaugural season in Central America, Star Clipper will spend the 2024/2025 winter season sailing the lush coastlines of Costa Rica and Panama. These exciting itineraries take guests to tranquil beaches on idyllic Isla Tortuga, Costa Rica and “deserted islands” such as Isla San Jose in the Pearl Islands. Nature lovers will adore the port town of Quepos, Costa Rica, located near the magnificent Manuel Antonio National Park, where they can encounter monkeys, sloths, and nearly 450 species of birds.
Guests looking to experience the magic of Venice aboard a tall ship will be delighted to learn that in Summer 2025, Star Flyer will offer a pair of 11-day sailings between Venice and Rome. For those looking to combine a shorter sailing with a land tour Royal Clipper offers a variety of four- to six-night itineraries in the Western Mediterranean.
Racing fans will be thrilled to learn that in 2025, Star Flyer will take over the Grand Prix sailings, with two itineraries on offer: the May 17 sailing round trip out of Cannes puts guests in Monaco for the Grand Prix trials on May 23, and the May 24 sailing between Cannes and Rome will be in Monaco for the Grand Prix finals on May 25. Those looking to book back-to-back sailings to take in both events can save 5% off the second sailing.
Star Clippers’ special Grand Voyage itineraries are created to allow guests to experience an extended journey through the Eastern and Western Mediterranean and are available on all three of the clipper ships. These nine- to 20-night sailings have no more than three days at sea during any trip, allowing more time for exploring the small towns and UNESCO heritage sites, sampling the local cuisine, and getting a glimpse of life as a local. An array of 14-night sailings island hopping in Greece on Star Flyer take guests to lesser-known islands like Skiathos and Skopelos in addition to favorites like Santorini and Mykonos.
For more than 25 years, Star Clippers has been introducing travelers to the thrill of modern tall ship sailing to remote ports in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Central America. The company operates three of the world’s largest and tallest sailing vessels: Star Clipper and Star Flyer are traditional clipper ships with modern amenities carrying 166 guests, while the 227-guest Royal Clipper holds the Guinness World Record for being the largest and only five-masted, full-rigged sailing ship in service today. All three ships have expansive teak decks, swimming pools, informal dining, convivial tropical bars on deck and piano lounges.
