Star Clipper for Families

Editor Rating
Families
1.0
For all practical purposes this is one of the least kid-appropriate ships on the water. Star Clipper has neither staff nor facilities nor programs geared to youngsters -- though, to be fair, they will piece something together if there are enough children aboard for a particular sailing. The handful of kids onboard our sailing -- all of whom were veterans of the mainstream ships and lines -- were very displeased. Though it is hard to conceive of any kids through age 10 or 12 who would relate to the Star Clipper experience, there may be a handful of self-entertaining adolescents who have a passion for on-, under- or near-the-water sports (Scuba, snorkeling, small boat sailing, beach volleyball, waterskiing, etc.) who would find the cruise to their liking, but that's about it. There are no children's menus or special dining options. Pregnant guests may not sail in their third trimester.
