photoStar Clippers is an international cruise line with head offices in the U.S. and Monaco. The company has three sailing ships: the 170-guest Star Clipper and Star Flyer, and the five-masted, 227-passenger Royal Clipper (which was inspired by the squarerigger Preussen of 1902).

photoAll three vessels offer "casual elegance" in cruising, with activities that range from leisurely dining to climbing the mast or sunbathing in a net under the bowsprit.

Star Clippers normally offers cruises of varying lengths in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Western Med, and Northern Europe from spring through early fall. The company also has lengthy repositioning cruises (including time under sail) between Europe and the Caribbean.

In 2015, the line's European season begins in April and runs through late October. In addition, Star Clippers has scheduled three eastbound transatlantic crossings in April and two westbound transatlantic voyages in November.
