5 Extras You’ll Enjoy When You Upgrade Your Cabin

11th January 2019

When you step on board a Star Clippers ship, you will sail in the lap of luxury and want for very little during your holiday. However, there are ways that you can enhance your experience with us to make it even more luxurious – one of which is to upgrade your cabin to a Category 1, Deluxe Suite or even one of our sumptuous Owner’s Suites.

When you do this, you’ll have access to some great extra benefits that will add something special to your cruise. Here are some extravagant examples.

Sitting Area

Star Clippers Sitting Area

You may think that a sitting room in your cabin is something that you wouldn’t get much use out of, but it’s always nice to have some extra private space to yourself. You may want to relax first thing in the morning or sit down for a while before dinner and, whilst this can obviously be done on the bed, you’ll be a lot more comfortable on a plush sofa. With an added sitting area, you’ll also notice the extra room you have to move around and to store your belongings if you need it.

Whirlpool Bath

Whirlpool Bath

Imagine returning from a long day of exploring ashore and immediately soothing your aching limbs in your own private whirlpool bath. All Star Clippers cabins offer a beautifully appointed marble bathroom, but upgrading to a Category 1 or higher means you’ll have instant bubbles at the touch of a button. There are few things more relaxing than a long soak and it’s great preparation for when you’re getting glammed up in the evening.


In-room drinks

You’ll never be short of somewhere to grab a drink when you sail with us, the Tropical Bar being one of the most popular spots in which to sip a cocktail and catch up with new friends. However, sometimes it’s nice to spend some quality time with your loved ones by enjoying a drink in your cabin or suite. Your personal minibar will be re-stocked daily with some of your favourite tipples, meaning you can enjoy a pre-dinner aperitif or after dark nightcap without leaving your accommodation.

Private Veranda

A balcony/veranda is one of the best upgrades you can add to any cruise, giving you extra space to relax and allowing you to make the most of the views that glide past your window. Enjoying breakfast on the balcony before a busy day, while gazing out to sea or at your latest port of call, is one of the most satisfying moments of a cruise holiday and one which should not be overlooked.

Room Service

Star Clippers Food

24-hour room service is available when you choose to stay in one of the Owner’s Suites or Deluxe Suites on Royal Clipper. With this option, you don’t have to be governed by the serving times in the main dining room as you can have whatever menu item your stomach is craving ordered to your door at whatever time you choose. Room service means that you can enjoy a romantic meal on your veranda and also satisfy any hunger pangs that occur late at night.
