Star Clipper Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
Launched in 1992, Star Clipper is a virtual twin of fleetmate Star Flyer. Both clipper ships reflect a proud heritage in new age of sail, where the traditions of the past merge with the comforts and amenities of today. Life on board is relaxed and casual, much like traveling on a private yacht. Expansive teak decks offer ample space and not one but two swimming pools. This small sailing ship offers more outdoor space per passenger than most conventional cruise ships.
With its bright brass fixtures, teak-and-mahogany paneling and rails, and antique prints and paintings of famous sailing vessels, the interior decor of these ships reflects the heritage of grand sailing vessels.
Porthole-shape skylights create an atrium-like effect in the Piano Bar, which leads to a graceful staircase and the dining room one deck below. The centerpiece of the vaguely Edwardian-style library is a belle époque–period fireplace.
The Piano Bar is intimate and cozy. The Tropical Bar, one of the most popular areas on board, is the center of social activity for predinner cocktails and late-night dancing. It's the covered outdoor lounge adjacent to the open deck space, where local entertainers often perform.
