Star Clippers Festive Season 2020

Star Clippers Festive Season 2020

Star Clippers have three sailings that offer the chance to swap negative temperatures for positive vibes next Christmas. With Britain in the grip of permafrost, an escape to the Caribbean or South East Asia is certainly appealing - never more so than when it’s aboard one of Star Clippers’ elegant, head-turning tall ships.

The company’s flagship, the five-masted, 227-passenger, Royal Clipper will depart Barbados on 19 December 2020. On Christmas Day the anchor will be dropped in the tropical haven of Marigot Bay, St Lucia, one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean; and New Year’s Day will be celebrated in Martinique, with its unique combination of West Indian warmth and French chic. Other ports on this 14-night ‘Windward and Grenadine Islands’ cruise, round-trip from Barbados are: Captain's Best (Grenadines); St George's (Grenada); Tobago Cays (Grenadines);  Kingstown (St Vincent); Admiralty Bay (Bequia); Fort de France (Martinique); Martinique Beach; Soufriere (St Lucia);  Rodney Bay (St Lucia); Cabrits (Dominica); Falmouth Harbour (Antigua); Basseterre (St Kitts); and Terre-de-Haut (Iles de Saintes).

The elegant 170-passenger Star Flyer will drop anchor in Gustavia, the tiny Caribbean capital of the chic Gallic island of St Barts, on both Christmas Day and New Year’s Day on its 14-night ‘Treasure & Leeward Islands’ cruise round-trip from Philipsburg (St Maarten) on 19 December 2020. Other ports are: Road Bay (Anguilla); Spanish Town (Virgin Gorda); Long Bay (Beef Island); White Bay (Jost van Dyke); Sopers Hole (Tortola); sailing the Sir Francis Drake Channel; the Bight (Norman Island); Basseterre (St Kitts); South Friar’s Bay (St Kitts); Charlestown (Nevis); Cabrits (Dominica); Terre-de-Haut (Iles des Saintes); Deshaies (Guadeloupe); and Falmouth Harbour (Antigua).

Star Clipper which also conveys just 170 passengers sets its compass to Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore for a 14-night cruise round-trip from Phuket, departing 19 December 2020. During this cruise Christmas Day will be in the bustling city of Malacca, New Year’s Day with be amid the dramatic islands of Koh Similan in Thailand. Other Thai ports include Ko Miang; Phang Nga Bay; Ko Hong; Ko Adang; and Ko Hong, there’s also calls at Singapore and the Malaysian island of Langkawi.

Star Clipper’s three magnificent tall ships offer the exhilaration of sailing beneath billowing sails, never far from the water, in the company of like-minded guests. You can relax on the scrubbed teak deck, beneath billowing sails; or lie in the bowsprit net as the bow slices through the waves. There’s even the chance to climb the rigging for a magnificent bird’s eye view. Long, relaxing days at sea, and ashore, discovering far off and idyllic islands, beaches, small villages and lush, tropical forests, make for a perfect seasonal getaway.
