Ship Facts: Royal Clipper Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Royal Clipper Deck Plans
The ship it what it's all about!
From the moment you first walk up the gangway and the Captain welcomes you aboard you know this cruise is going to be different. The ship is something else, surely no more ropes are left for the rest of the world as this ship must have used them all. For a vessel 12 years old it is kept in fantastic shape. The crew was great and having only 200 passengers was totally different from a regular cruise.

Now understand, it is a sailing ship, and you will lay in bed and feel it rocking. You will indeed sail on this ship. As soon as you push away from the dock they sales start going up (with great fanfare), even while you are still in the harbor. Also don't bring any small children as you would not feel comfortable. Lots of rope to step over and several "gaps" in the railing around the life boats where there is no railing (only a single rope). There are no elevators and some of the outside doorways you have to sort of squeeze through as they can become water tight doors.

Our cabin, although small, was the most beautiful, wood everywhere. Bathroom is nice but the shower size sucks (like stand up without moving you arms, heaven forbid you drop the soap).

Ports, mostly beach stops which were nice. The little out of the way towns were nothing much. Don't go to expecting any great port stops.

Would I go again, yes. Will I go again, yes. This ship is a "only one in the world" experience. Sitting on deck at night looking at the sails and the stars was worth every penny and moments we will remember forever.
