In 1902, the largest, fastest sailing ship the world had ever seen was launched. The legendary Preussen dominated the seas, only to be gone in a few short years. Neither before nor since had the world seen such a magnificent sailing ship, until today...
The launch of the world's largest true sailing ship is inspired by the legendary Tall Ship, Preussen. The new Royal Clipper has the proud distinction of being the largest and only five-masted sailing ship built since her predecessor was launched at the beginning of the last century. With a complement of 42 sails, Royal Clipper is a splendid sight to behold. You might think she was an apparition from the grand age of sail, but Royal clipper is as new as tomorrow, boasting state of the art navigation systems and every comfort and luxury one could desire.
Dining on Royal Clipper is, like many voyages at sea - a focal part of the experience. Breakfast and lunch feature a buffet format, though the choice of options is surprisingly extensive for such a small ship. Dinner is a more formal waiter service affair - with 6 courses, a decent wine list and complimentary after dinner teas/coffees.
Entertainment on a Star Clippers voyage is somewhat lower key than you may find on a regular ocean cruise liner. Once a voyage the crew showcase a 'talent night' where you'll be treated to a selection of comedy, magic, dancing or musical acts - all of which are hugely entertaining, and really quite endearing. There's a piano bar onboard for those more refined romantic evenings. Most evenings are spent though swapping stories of the day with fellow guests. With fewer guests onboard, expect to make friends for life!

What our customers say
"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "
"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
