Ship Facilities

All meals onboard Star Clipper are served in the elegant and beautifully decorated main dining room. Despite the small size of the ship, the breakfast buffet is as extensive as any you would find on a larger vessel. Serving everything from a cooked breakfast to fresh fruit, cereal and porridge, there’s no better way to fuel up for the day than with a hearty meal here.

At lunch, guests can also expect a buffet, serving soup, breads, meats and everything in between, as well as occasional themed lunches with cuisine from Italy or Asia, expertly prepared to tantalise the taste buds.

However, dinner time is the star of the show. Featuring attentive waiter service and various courses of delicious cuisine, an evening in the main dining room is one to remember.

Entertainment on Star Clipper is just as sophisticated as you would expect from such an elegant ship. The two main bars onboard are the Tropical Bar and the Piano Bar. If you’re looking to have a drink in the open-air while you enjoy watching the world go by, choose the Tropical Bar. Alternatively, the cosy Piano Bar is perfect for a post-dinner drink with friends with live piano music playing gently in the background.

The most popular activity onboard Star Clipper is relaxing and with gorgeous teak decks and two saltwater pools, there’s plenty of space to lay back and soak up the peaceful atmosphere. However, if you’d like to use your cruise to learn some new skills, the crew also holds classes on knot-tying, towel folding and napkin-folding classes.

In addition, Star Clipper carries lots of equipment so that guests can make the most out of the water. With everything from kayaks and sailing dinghies to snorkelling and scuba-diving gear, there are plenty of ways to get up close and personal with the marine life.

Customer reviews for Star Clipper

Wonderful - all of it, the crew were so friendly and helpful; the atmosphere on board was very relaxed and everyone was easy to talk to - including the captain and officers; the food was delicious; the the excursions and guides were excellent and the information and history available in the form of talks by various members of the crew and tour guides was very informative and interesting and made the cruise so much more appreciated. And the Shil was majestic and immaculate.

The ship is lovely like wise the crew and food. The only concern I have is the boarding ladder up the side of the ship was unstable and daunting for some people. I did expect better. They used local boats to get to some islands (wet landings) I thought this process was down right dangerous. The sea was choppy and the locals do not have any sense of health and safety. Although some people turned back I went on a speed boat to an island but found it very difficult to get on and off. I did expect landings would be carried out by the crew not locals. More care needs to be taken. Larger cruise ships would not let you go ashore under the same conditions. I do realise Clipper ships are different but the fact still remains that the sea is very powerful and unpredictable and more care should betaken especially with guests who are fit but getting on in years. Hope this is useful Enid G

We had a great time despite sometimes disappointing weather (10 - 17 November out of Phuket) The crewe were amazing in very department. Nothing too much trouble and always smiley and helpful. The food was excellent and very varied. I think the water sports were probably the highlight of the cruise, but even though I did not participate I was well entertained and enjoyed the trip very much. Just two observations. I would have preferred to have two days in Penang as there is so much to see and do there. Also I felt that the organised trip to the charcoals burners was not up to the standard of the rest of the trip. These are very small matters. In all I give this cruise 5/5 Being undersail for much of the voage was a great thrill. The captain was approachable and friendly and very much in charge which gave one confidence. Peter in charge of all the entertainments and shore excursions was always very friendly and a fount of knowledge on everything! He gave talks up on deck each day, sometimes twice and it was clear that he just loved his subject and sharing his knowedge with others. I felt it was a privilige to be aboard such a beautiful ship and will definitely look forward to taking another cruise with Star Clippers
