We choose this cruise because we were already going to Cuba for 5 days prior and 3 days following; but we wish that we hadn't! We boarded on January 7: We were picked up by Star Flyer bus at Iberostar. We were not on the passenger list. Fortunately, a Star Flyer person said he remembered our name and that we should board the bus! After almost an hour of driving we stopped because the Star Flyer ...

Star Flyer - Cuba 1st - 8th February 2015 29th January 2015: Havana: Left Gatwick to land in Cuba some 9½ hours later. Customs/Passport control faster than I feared and certainly better than Gatwick. Transfer to Hotel Saratoga by limo. Hotel rated 4 Cuban stars you'd give 2-3 here. Had to change room due to damp smell and noise from 24hr bar under us. Also cobwebs big enough that you could have ...

Have never sailed on a ship like this. Have been on much larger cruises and smaller sailing ships. The Royal Clipper was just fabulous. The cabins are very nice ( ours was grade 3 with a nice bathroom and shower, TV, good hairdryer and comfy bed) but we saw the luxury ones which had a private veranda and whirlpool bath which looked very nice indeed. It's got a nice gym and 3 small pools on the top ...

Sailed from Cienfuegos, 3 hours south of Havana, there is no such port of embarkation on the list above! Departed on 11 Jan 2015. All very smooth. Lovely weather, ship beautiful, Captain jolly, crew friendly and very efficient. Food excellent. Spent the first day at sea sailing up and down......there is nowhere else to go, and get the impression Cuban officials are very firm about where they go. ...

This was our sixth Star Clipper cruise but the first that included our grown kids, their spouses and our grandchildren. Every minute of every day was wonderful. The kids had a great time. The crew went to great lengths to make sure the grandchildren had fun, even though there were no official activities for children. On how many cruise ship would the captain (Sergie) know all their names and let ...

This was my first cruise on a Star Clipper, and this was an adventure! We were on the 2nd cruise from Cuba, and there were many many teething problems. The transfers from Havana had been arranged by the land agents of Star Clipper, and many arrived 2 hrs prior to boarding - but very limited facilities. Happily arrangements were made to board passengers 1 hr early The itinerary had not been ...

We too were on the second cruise from Cienfuegos Cuba to the Cayman islands and back, as was the previous reviewer. However, we rate the cruise more positively than he did. There were indeed teething problems, but nowhere near as bad as the previous (first) week, when the ship ran aground due to incorrect sea charts. A problem for some with these cruises is the departure port on the south side of ...

NOT A PARTY SHIP

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Royal Clipper was the perfect choice for our age (58/60) we could enjoy life on-deck, sunbathing, reading or just looking at the sea and surrounding islands. When the ship laid anchor off the island on the cruise itinerary we could manage the steps down to the small craft ferrying us to and from the beach. On-shore as with most places in the world today, it was up to you to use common sense whilst ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Perhaps I should start by stating what this ship is not and who it's not for. It's not glitzy and full of neon, It does not have a casino or show lounge , no resident comedian or dancing girls,It's not Las vegas on the ocean in other words. It's not suitable for the weight or physically challenged, and perhaps not for those easily prone to seasickness This is a small classy sailing vessel, which ...
