The staff on this ship were excellent, great service and friendly / food was very good. The ship is fascinating to sail on especially when they raise the sails, truly a sight to watch. As it is not a large cruise ship you are not crowded with too many people. Our cabin was small but comfortable. The only downside, a serious safety concern is getting off/on the gangplank when getting into/out of the tenders. This platform is very unstable and rickety thus unsafe as it moves up and down and although the staff help you in/out during our time several people fell, luckily landing inside the tender; if you fell in between the tender and the platform you would be killed. Other ships are using a much more stable and secured platform which is much safer. When I brought this matter to the attention of one of the board members/owner whom was sailing with his family he appeared not to care stating "there is nothing we can do". I believe a simple modification to secure this platform would make tendering much safer for all passengers and crew. We did enjoy the cruise and may sail again with this company. Read Less

Do not go on Star Clippers if you need pampering or entertaining. It is all about the ship, which is beautiful in itself but when under sail transcends the ordinary. Siting on deck at night, under the stars with a drink and the "one you love" is worth every penny and all the effort of getting to our pick up point in Phuket. As has been said in other reviews, the food is excellent but the entertainment officer is painful and the state of much of the deck furniture is poor. The officers appear lack lustre and oblivious to guest comfort and in some cases safety. I had to report two of the young entertainment staff for cross tanking petrol for the speed boat on deck whilst a party was going on a few feet away. Shore excursions were average but interesting if you found your own way, which is easy in Thailand and Malay. Again the crew appear to wash their hands of passengers when ashore, quite unlike Windstar their competition. It is what it is, we have sailed on Royal Clipper which is even more awesome as a ship but the Teutonic disdain for the passengers is the same. Read Less

We never sailed on a star clipper. We wanted to end our Asia trip with the relaxing cruise. We boarded in Phuket Easley with no problem. We were shown to our cabin in the rear of the ship. We chose one of the cheapest rooms. This room however was very tiny and had one tiny closet for two . We decided not to unpack most of our stuff. Bathing suits a couple of coverups undergarments and some dress clothes. We asked to see the hotel manager because we thought the room was a joke he told us we could upgrade for around $200. we decided we to rough it! After a lengthy drill with the German cruise director, we went to dinner. The food was good. They’re only serving 125 people. There were many Germans and many English people on board. Maybe only six other Americans. Drinks at the bar were reasonable. Salo The food was good. They’re only serving 125 people. There were many Germans and many English people on board. Maybe only six other Americans. Drinks at the bar were reasonable. Sail always Beautiful. Sails were always used. Most of the stops were beaches. We did a lot of snorkeling. Nice barbecue on one of the beaches. Small ship was intimate. Enjoyed a small excursion that was free on the zodiac. I didn’t like the fact that the Germans and English grouped together Amongst themselves. The hotel manager on the first night asked that I not speak to him during dinner. Even went as far as saying I know what you are going to ask me next am I married how many kids do I have? Come on your in the service industry get a better attitude. Ports nice food good people clicky atmosphere of a tall sail ship. I have sailed WinStar and Club Med 2 both of which are more more luxurious but don’t that I’m on an adventure feel! Read Less
