Star Clippers Lets Guests Choose Favorite Perks on Select 2020 Tall Ship Mediterranean Sailings
Mediterranean cruises offer an incredible variety of sights and experiences, from pristine beaches and picture-perfect coastal towns to ancient ruins and architecture to authentic versions of favorite culinary delights. In short, the Mediterranean region is easily one of the most diverse in the world, and Star Clippers allows travelers to experience this area the way it was meant to be seen, from on board a classic tall ship. Unlike the large ocean liners that ply the warm waters of the Mediterranean, Star Clippers ships are intimate—the largest vessel holds just 227 guests—and because of their smaller scale can visit remote ports of call not accessible by larger ships. This, of course, translates to fewer crowds, and a more authentic experience in ports frequented largely be locals. And because Star Clippers’ fleet of tall clipper ships are true sailing vessels, they sail solely under wind power whenever possible, up to 90% of the time in the Mediterranean. Standing on deck as the nautical crew raise the sails by hand, watching the port recede into the distance and feeling the wind catch and start to carry you is incredible experience in and of itself.
Star Clippers sailings in the Eastern and Western pay call on more than 10 countries, with intriguing ports of call like Skopelos, Greece, where some of the most iconic scenes from Mamma Mia! were filmed; Propriana, Corsica, with its colorful harbor with luxury shopping; and Vis island, a pearl among Croatian Adriatic Islands that has been left untouched by tourism for many years. Now, Star Clipper is making it easier for travelers to make this Mediterranean sailing dream a reality with a choice of perks on select 2020 unique tall ship sailings in the Eastern and Western Mediterranean.
Guests who book by August 31, 2019 can choose their two favorite perks: (1) one free cabin category upgrade OR $200 in shipboard credit, plus (2) prepaid gratuities OR a one-hour massage. Deal is good on select three to 11 day sailings on the 227-passenger Royal Clipper in the Western Mediterranean, with sailing out of Malaga, Spain, Rome, Venice and Cannes.
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, Indonesia and Far East. 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 170 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.
