Thurs 12 May 2016

Star Clippers have just launched their fantastic range of Summer 2017 cruises on authentic tall ships Star Clipper, Star Flyer and Royal Clipper. As well as the popular cruises around the Greek Islands and Turkish Coast, there are some exciting new additions.

With Star Clipper relocating to Thailand this winter, Star Clippers Cruises are to further enhance their Far East Asia sailings in 2017 with a range of itineraries in and around Indonesia. Star Clippers tall ships provide an insight into a bygone era of sailing, and these exciting journeys, which will commence from May 2017, will be reminiscent of adventures embarked upon by Robinson Crusoe, with port calls to many tiny jungle-and-sand islands. The small size of Star Clipper provides a unique opportunity to visit smaller islands that larger ships are unable to reach. As well as visiting remote islands and cultural landmarks, passengers onboard these cruises will be able to delve into Hindi culture and explore bustling streets and exotic markets. Following the tradition of Star Clippers itineraries, passengers will be able to try snorkelling, kayaking and canoeing off many of the breathtaking island beaches.
