A wonderful experience! We just returned from a week aboard the Star Clipper which sailed to the three of the Greek Islands and two port in Turkey. We totally enjoyed are overall experience with a wonderful attentive staff, the ability to have easy on/easy off in each port and the option of water sports in many of the islands.
The ship was lovely and although the cabin was small in size, we were greatly surprised how well it was laid out and how every bit of space with well utilized. The shore excursions were extremely reasonable compared to any other cruise ship and we took advantage of two out of the 5 days. Both were well organized and offered the opportunity to experience and view what the port offered. We enjoyed the reasonable prices of wine and cocktails as well plus the option to purchase a bottle of wine and have it kept for you for the next evening.
I enjoy a wonderful massage by Marietta. Although there is no real "spa", the opportunity to have a massage in a covered area outside on the top deck, allows you to hear the sea water and feel the breeze. It actually enhanced the experience.
