Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin:

This was my 4th Star Clipper cruise and I knew the drill and what to expect. Had inside cabin 218 which is bunk bed and basically a closet but for one person I used the upper bunk as storage. Be aware that here is not a whole lot of open deck space and may have trouble finding a chair especially in the shade. I always enjoy the food on Star Clipper and this was no exception. They do a good job of seating you with others and they were all very welcoming to me. We had a mix of UK, Germany, Scotland, and US which was a nice group of people and were told we had 130 on our cruise. Had more wind, choppy seas and showers on this than all 3 of my past trips combined but luckily this did not affect our shore time. Sadly it seems that time on shore gets less and less. Guess that is on effect of using sails but other times we stopped in the morning to let excursion go out and by the time we got to afternoon stop only had a very short time to visit. I still have issue that they do not have any island beer as Carib on board which seems strange to be in the Caribbean and offer Bud Light and a German Draft beer.

When I got home I discovered I did not receive the $75 OBC I was supposed to receive. I had my travel agent call and he was offered was I should book another cruise to receive the $75. I called and the lady agreed it was on my documents and she would send it to Mark and he would call me back that day and I have never heard from him at all. This treatment causes me concern for a repeat customer and I am not sure if I will give them my business in the future. If you have never been and want to experience a ship under sails you should try it but if you are promised anything be sure to check your documents before you leave the ship.

Cabin Review

Cabin was upper and lower inside which had no tv and like a closet. Hope for good weather as being cooped up during a storm with no place to sit would be difficult. Cabin steward kept things great and luckily I was only in room to sleep and shower.
