Ship Facts: Royal Clipper Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Royal Clipper Deck Plans
Royal Clipper - Eastern Med

We recently sailed on the Royal Clipper on their Eastern Med cruise starting at Venice and finishing in Rome having visited Croatia, Montenegro, Sicily, Corfu and Capri, This was a truly wonderful experience and without a doubt the most unique experience I have had cruising.

It was a truly magical and our fellow passengers were the most interesting I have met on the 15 cruises I have been on before. The ports of call were excellent and the suite we had ( owners suite) was luxurious. The crew were friendly and most helpful and the food was excellent.

If you like to have others passengers who speak English then I would advise you to book through Riviera Travel as they charter several of the clippers ships throughout the year and sell them exclusively in the UK. Also if you book through Riviera they include quite a few of the excursions in the price so very good value and the couriers were excellent.

This cruise should not be compared with the huge gin palaces on the sea it is very much more select and stylish so don't expect children running around and flash cabarets. The Royal Clipper has a library and a small spa and a couple of bars and cabins have a DVD and BBC World. It also has three plunge pools on the deck and a marina at the back where you can swim from and do water sports. It was a great experience travelling under sail and we had no turbulence at all throughout the entire cruise. If there is no wind it travels under engine power.
