Is this for you?
Discovering the world on one of Star Clippers’ tall ships is a totally different way of cruising, combining the romance of traditional sailing and modern on-board facilities. Enjoy fantastic dining as part of your full-board package. Star Clippers offer a choice of westbound (Borneo & Singapore Explorer) and eastbound (Singapore and Borneo Discovery) itineraries, which can both be combined with our detailed pre- and post-cruise stays. These itineraries have a different number of nights.
The graceful four-masted sailing vessel Star Clipper harks back to a bygone era with her exquisite exteriors, expansive teak-wood decks and beautiful antique interiors. This charming clipper ship can sail into more intimate ports and anchor close to untouched shores, all of which lends an air of exclusivity to your cruise.
