Royal Clipper Cruise Review by standacre59

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2017
  • Destination: the Caribbean

Our Cruise was the Windward Islands. We had never been cruising before. It was a very different experience. We were some of the youngest passengers in our late 50s and early 60s and many of the passengers were over 80! The evening entertainment was limited and over most nights by 11, after that most went to bed. However, do not be put off the food and attention to detail will stay with us for ever. The cabins, ship, dining, ports and excursions were amazing. The majority of staff could not do enough to help you. Standards were very high. You may be seasick, where the Atlantic and Caribbean meet, it can be rocky. Please take your seasick tablets and bands. The first morning we could not wait to arrive at St Lucia, but after that most of the time we seemed to get "sea legs." Many people looked green around the gills! The unfurling of the sail as we left port will stay with me for ever. There is so much space. Do not forget she is an ocean going vessel and you can really feel her move.

Cabin Review

Cabin 3 257

The cabin was very good, we were mid range. Outside cable with marble bathrooms. The beds were doubles and it reminded me of a little nest, but very comfortable.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Snorkelling with Rays was really excellent on Antigua. Island Tour on St Kitts. River Boat Cruise on Dominica. The Ray experience was something I will never forget, gentle creatures .

River Cruise on Dominica saw film location for Pirates of the Caribbean. This particular Island is very poor.
