Royal Clipper Cruise Review by Shrimper49
- Sail Date: January 2019
- Destination: Caribbean
The Captain and his crew are all personable, approachable and happy to give their time to chat with passengers - we could not fault anyone.
The food throughout the day is first class - but we did not manage to stay up for the midnight offering! How they prepare food of such a high standard in a Galley for something like 110 crew and 220 passengers is a mystery.
Seating in the Tropical Bar was mainly on high bar stools which my wife could not manage with just a few chairs provided so we missed most of the entertainment but enjoyed our reasonably priced drinks in comfort in the Piano Lounge.
Most of the islands visited we have holidayed at or visited so did not take advantage of many of the tours on offer although we took the tender to some great beaches like Bequia, Mayreau. Only one island is not for us again.
Sail Away each evening with the music playing , sails being set (and lit up on later dark departures) is nightly emotional experience.
Another great holiday - we are already considering a Star Clipper Company Cruise to other islands in a year or two!

Plantation & Tropical GardensWe visited a Church on the way to the Tropical Gardens for more than double the 10 minutes the guide said making it too difficult to get round the whole of the gardens - missed out the bridge walkway which takes 15 minutes or more when people hang about taking photos delaying those waiting behind what we saw was beautiful.View All 19 Plantation & Tropical Gardens Reviews
