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.

The 2014 Star Clippers European cruise calendar hadn't been announced when we last updated this page in August, 2013. For up-to-date information, see the link below.
