Star Clipper Cruise Review by sailorjeff

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2013
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean

We and another couple of our sailing friends embarqed on a weeks cruise in paradise. As sailors, we were not interested in the usual cruise ship with thousands of passengers, but to be under sail with a small group going to ports that the mega cruise ships can't access. We found the Star Clipper to be well found, maintained, and a very pleasant stay for out weeks trip.

The class 3 cabin was compact, but very functional. The food offerings were well done, with sufficient choices. The bar offerings were reasonable in price, as were the wine offerings for dinner. The crew performed well, and the watersports team were over the top great! We found the dining room service efficient, but not very engaging. The passengers represented 14 nations, so the announcements got somewhat tedious in 3 languages. The european contigent pretty much ignored the non smoking rules, and smoked wherever they pleased. We also discovered that they don't feel much like being at the back of any lines, and will cut to the front unless confronted. We had hoped to be under full sail like in all the brochures, but our best day had 9 of the 14 sails out, and usually it was 4 or 5, but we were sailing. It seemed like they were more concerned with keeping the ship level, and passengers comfortable as opposed to really cranking under sail which we were of course hoping for. The music playing and sails unfurling was a very nice touch that everyone appreciated whenever we got underway.
