Star Clippers: Grandkids Sail Free, Grandparents Enjoy 10% Savings

Although multi-generational vacations have been around for years, the recent uptick in interest has meant families are looking at options beyond the mainstream. Looking for unique ways to appeal to the variety of interests that are inherent when multigenerational families travel together. Star Clippers, as a brand, offers that variety – and is stepping up with a deal that makes it easy to board one of their world-renown tall clipper ships: 10% off fares for grandparents and kids sail for free. This offer is available for residents of North, Central and South America for new bookings on dozens of sailing trips in the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, and Central America, subject to availability.

Star Clippers’ fleet of tall clipper ships are true sailing vessels, meaning they sail solely under wind power whenever possible—a unique experience that no other major cruise line can claim. Add to that the wide range of activities and excursions offered to all ages, and the family will have found the winning formula for a memory-filled vacation.

School age children love watching the sails go up and down, while older kids and adults can do a deeper dive into sailing with lectures on navigation and classes on the art of nautical knot tying. Each night when the ship leaves port, guests gather on the top deck for “sail away,” an exhilarating and photo-worthy experience sure to create lasting memories.

More adventurous members of the family can try their hand at climbing the ship’s rigging the crow’s nest—located almost 100 feet in the air – and be rewarded with the ultimate panoramic view. Parents looking to steal away from a moment alone will be drawn to the bowsprit netting, where they can lie under the open sky with the sea lapping below them and enjoy a quiet moment. Comfy deck chairs populate the upper decks so grandparents, or anyone looking to just relax and enjoy the unique experience of ocean sailing, can sit back and watch the world go by.

Families are increasingly opting for adventurous and active experiences such as hiking, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving, and cultural immersions, providing opportunities for bonding and shared experiences. Parents or grandparents can steal away on wine tasting tours and free time shopping in some of the world’s most treasured shopping meccas.

Star Clippers ships sail to a variety of destinations around the globe, so choosing a favorite itinerary might be the most difficult part of the vacation planning process. Sailings out of St. Maarten and Barbados offer all the sun and sand you’d expect from a Caribbean getaway as Star Clippers vessels set anchor in small, off the beaten path ports away from the large cruise liners. Families looking to travel further afield can visit multiple counties and explore different cultures on a variety of eastern and western Mediterranean itineraries, with departures out of Rome, Cannes, and Athens to name a few.

A Star Clippers sailing includes most everything under one fee—your cabin, all meals onboard, entertainment, the assistance of knowledgeable cruise director, and transportation to and from the ports via tender boats when not docked at the pier. It also affords the luxury of unpacking your suitcase just once, no lugging it across cobblestone streets or worrying about misplacing it, while waking up in a different destination each day.

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 each, 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.
