The Sailing Ships of Star Clippers

offers intimate, 7 and 14-night mega yacht sailing adventures in the Caribbean, French and Italian Rivieras, Spain and Balearic Islands and Greek Isles and Turkey, and the Far East.  Their cruises combine nautical tradition with a tasteful style in décor that is pleasing to the eye and comfortable to the body and soul.  On a Star Clipper cruise the very notion of a rigid agenda of activities is a foreign concept. Guests can discover history and fascinating cultures on exciting shore excursions in exotic ports or take part in water sports if it's a beach day.   On all three ships, you are free to dine when and with whomever you wish - including officers, who join our guests in the dining room most nights. No need for formal gowns and black tie. Casual elegance is the order of the day.   Star Clippers call their informal yet elegant approach to sailing the "Mega Yacht Sailing Experience."  For iteneraries and booking information

 offers highly flexible, value packed independent vacations.  Offering both independent and escorted programs virtually guarantees you'll find something to your liking. The unescorted programs offer the idependent-minded traveler who is well informed and looking for a multi-cultural experience off-the-beaten path a rare travel opportunity.
