Royal Clipper

Dining on Royal Clipper is, like many voyages at sea, a focal point when it comes to the cruising experience. Breakfast and lunch feature a buffet, with an extensive variety of dishes to choose from. Dinner is a more formal waiter service affair, featuring 6 courses, an impressive wine list and complimentary after dinner teas and coffees.

Once a sailing, there is also a special gala deck lunch, where local themed dishes can be enjoyed in the main bar deck area, presenting guests with a great opportunity to relax with fellow passengers over speciality dishes from the regions visited.

Entertainment on a Star Clippers voyage is lower key than you may find on a regular ocean cruise liner, but there are still plenty of ways to have fun once the sun goes down. 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. There's a piano bar onboard for those more refined romantic evenings. However, most evenings are spent swapping stories of the day with fellow guests and with fewer people onboard, expect to make friends for life!

Spa and fitness

Although the ship may be small in size, there are plenty of facilities to help guests feel refreshed and rejuvenated:

  • Health Club & Spa
  • Sauna
  • Gym
  • 3 Outdoor Swimming Pools

Recreation

With complimentary watersports (facilities are carried on the ship), fans of scuba diving, snorkelling, and canoeing- to name just a few- will be well looked after. For a more unique activity, the nature of the sailing experience means the crew will happily welcome any keen passengers to join their crew as they hoist the sails ready for the off. Climbing the rigging is also on the cards for anyone with a head for heights - we gather the views are stunning!

Customer reviews for Royal Clipper

Quality of the ship was good, albeit we felt mealtimes were too crowded. Crew were helpful and generally very good. Cabin crew in particular did a very thorough job. If the weather had been better the deck space would most likely also be crowded, ie pressure to get a sunbed. The experience of sailing under sail was excellent.

Everything I hoped for and more - the ship was beautiful to look at, particularly with sails up, the cabins were good and as expected on this type of ship. The staff were exceptionally efficient, caring, informative and friendly. The choice at breakfast was quite delightful, lunches and evening dinner also very good, Quantity and quality excellent, (ate far too much and now on bread and water). If I were to go on a cruise I would choose this boat again but to a different location. Thankyou for advertising this superb cruise.

Ship was beautiful. Crew fantastic. Food excellent. Great wines reasonably priced. Cabin was ok but one side of the bed was against the bulkhead and the bathroom was tiny. Really wonderful experience.
