Royal Clipper Cruise Review by Smilingvillager

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2020
  • Destination: the Caribbean

We chose this cruise on the recommendation of friends. With only 200+ passengers, it was an exceptionally friendly/personal cruise among the passengers. Since there’s no elevators, there was no worry about being hit by electric wheelchairs or walkers.

The food is outstanding and served 5 times each day

Service by the waiters, cabin stewards, etc., was of highest quality

The ports visited often required anchorage due to visiting less frequented places that offered excellent water sports, beaches and shopping opportunities in areas of shallow waters.

It is a square rigged sailing ship with the majority of its passengers returning from previous experiences on the same Royal Clipper.

The staff is available, personable, and very professional.

The cabins are well decorated with mahogany and brass with more than adequate storage. The beds are comfortable and well dressed. The dress code is relaxed and only in the evening is “business casual” the standard.

Snorkeling, scuba, kayaking, swimming are offered from a sports platform with equipment supplied ate no cost.

Evening entertainment often provided by local performers, no faux broadway type.

Selecting this cruise is reserved for able bodied adventurous passengers.
