Additional details

Sail Date: Feb 2008

Summary: My wife and I have cruised before in the Pacific and through the Caribbean. Our trips were on typical vessels of Norwegian Cruise Line and Princess Cruises. Although entirely satisfied with those, we wished to do something special and we both enjoy sailing thus our choice of Star Clippers Line. SPV Royal Clipper was the ship that we selected to sail on. As we are 68 and 70 years old respectively, our holiday requirements were more sedate than years ago...

With the help of our travel agent we found what we wanted by flying to Barbados five days prior to the cruise, staying at the Coral Mist hotel then sailing two seven-day cruises back-to-back on Royal Clipper. We offer our commentaries below hoping that they may assist fellow travellers.

SPV Royal Clipper: We will not attempt to repeat all that has been said about Star Clippers and SPV Royal Clipper. We offer our comments relating to our specific experience under distinct headings below: Overview There are no superlatives that adequately describe what we experienced. A cruise on Royal Clipper is a romantic experience of a lifetime! If you are looking for a floating spa with disco, casino, and floorshows, you will be unhappy on Royal Clipper. If you enjoy sailing with a few friends in a romantic setting you will love it. (With good sea legs)
