2022-2024 Season Highlights
The 2022 and 2023 seasons offer some changes to sailing itineraries. The line’s namesake, Star Clipper, which has been sailing in Southeast Asia, will join its sisters in the Mediterranean in APR 2022, marking the first time in five years that all three ships will sail together in the region. This will allow the company to be able to host even more guests on new itineraries such as Yachtsman’s Paradise and Delightful Dervishes, seven-night sailings between Istanbul and Athens, and popular itineraries including Sporades Highlights cruise, visiting locations from the original Mamma Mia movie.
For the first time in eight years, Star Clippers will be calling on ports in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama and its canal, starting NOV 2022. Seven-day sailings round trip out of Puntarenas call on Costa Rican towns as well as ports in Panama or Nicaragua, depending on itinerary. These new sailings take guests to beaches on Isla Tortuga, Costa Rica and “deserted islands” such as Isla San Jose in the Pearl Islands. Nature lovers can enjoy the port town of Quepos, Costa Rica, located near the Manuel Antonio National Park, where they can encounter monkeys, sloths, and nearly 450 species of birds that call the park home.
For racing fans, Royal Clipper will offer the Grand Prix and St. Tropez Regatta sailings starting this year. A pair of itineraries in MAY puts guests in Monaco for the Grand Prix races, and in the fall, a round trip sailing out of Cannes takes guests to St. Tropez for the regatta.
The Caribbean also has its share of itineraries as Royal Clipper calls on Martinique during their Mardi Gras festivities. Sailing fans can also enjoy Super Yacht itineraries on Star Flyer, which put guests in St. Bart during the popular Bucket Regatta.
Star Clippers’ Grand Voyage itineraries are created to allow guests to experience an extended journey through the Eastern and Western Mediterranean and are now available on all three of the clipper ships. These 12- to 19-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. The 12-night Cannes to Lisbon itinerary on Royal Clipper, spans the Western Mediterranean and visits two continents, with ports of call in France, Italy, Spain, Morocco and Portugal. Guests can search for a perfect pasta dish in Sardinia, shop the markets in Casablanca and sunbathe in Ibiza, all during the same voyage.
Beginning in 2023, all three ships in the Star Clippers’ fleet will be making the transatlantic journey. In APR 2022 and 2023, Royal Clipper will make the 16-night Eastbound crossing between Bridgetown, Barbados and Lisbon, and for those who want more, a 28-day option will sail all the way to Rome. Also doing an Eastbound crossing is Star Clipper, departing APR 2023 from St. John’s, Antigua for a 20-night sailing to Malaga, Spain. Westbound sailings include a 24-night Malaga to St. Maarten adventure, a 28-night journey between Cannes, France and Barbados, and a 15-night sailing from the Canary Islands to St. Maarten.
