Review for a Transatlantic Cruise on Royal Clipper

We have always fancied travelling on this ship and were very excited when we managed to book a balcony cabin for the eastbound transatlantic sailing. The ship and cabin was everything we expected apart from our cabin being at the end of the line for air conditioning. This meant it was subject to outside temperature, sea temperature and demand from other cabins. The cabin itself was a lovely layout ...

Though I am not sure I could withstand more - my wife and sister in law and local friends were all set on going and my knee was shot. And the ship had stairs (ladders in nuatical terms) but no elevators. And I use a cane. Not good. Hoofed it to a colleague who shot me up with enough cortisone and marcaine to make me think I was 21 again and away we went. I knew I would pay for it but the other ...

We sailed on Royal Clipper in 2014 and loved it. We couldn't wait to go back, so much so, we booked two cruises back-to-back. This time was a VERY DIFFERENT experience. - Blistering paint and rust on ceiling, banged up woodwork, bad stains on carpet, chipped up paint on walls - Malfunctioning toilet (twice). We didn't have a working toilet for 16 hours. We had to use the toilet in ...

This is MY REVIEW Flight were scheduled by Star Clippers travel. My 12:30AM departure flight was cancelled when I arrived at the airport 2 hours early so I was without sleep for over 24 hours! Why didn't they send me day before and do overnight and fly next day to Barbados?? There was no way to speak to the person who does the booking. When I finally arrived around 10PM at night (the ...

Reviews of this ship are accurate but the excursion manager was impossible to deal with

Choose this cruise because I really like small ships and I was very interested in the sailing etc. As others have described the “raising of the sails” is very dramatic and fun to watch for the first 2 or 3 times. Crew is obviously focused on the care and maintenance of the sails etc. but as far as I could tell except for the day when we sailed with a sister ship the sails were just ...

This was my first time on a Star Clippers cruise. I had been on three big cruise lines but never on a tall ship. The experience far exceeded my expectations and I have already booked my next one. It was absolutely incredible. In fact, when the sails went up for the “sail away” experience on the first night – I would say it was one of the most amazing moments in years of travel. Every sail away was ...

We chose this cruise because of the opportunity to travel in a sailing ship. It more than fulfilled our expectations, with the ship travelling under sail for much of the journey. The ship itself is beautifully furnished with wood panelling and brass fittings. The weather was fine throughout so we spent a lot of time on deck, but the public rooms were lovely and very relaxing. The ...

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 ...

The cruise was nice, ship was in great condition , staff was accommodating but the management has some strange ideas about customer service. 3 major problems occurred on our recent cruise which would prevent me from cruising with Star Clippers again. First, there policy of confiscating passengers passports for the duration of the cruise is incredible in this day and age. It makes life easy for ...
