4 Post-Dinner Spots On Board A Star Clippers Cruise

24th May 2019

Ahhhhhhh……the refreshing taste of an after-dinner drink, knowing you’ve just enjoyed a delicious meal and that another day of exploring awaits tomorrow. Whether it’s just a quick nightcap or one that turns into two which turns into more, the post-dinner drink is something that most cruisers love to savour. Enjoy those last few moments of a glorious day at sea, recounting the day’s events and toasting the adventures yet to come.

If this sounds like your idea of heaven, here are some great after-dinner spots in which to enjoy a drink or two.

Piano Bar

Piano Bar

Acting as a central hub for most of the activity on board, the Piano Bar is found within the atrium area and always has a great atmosphere in the evening. The comfortable booths and dark wood furniture are sure to help you feel at home and a gentle tinkling of the ivories will provide a pleasant background score to your conversations.

Observation Lounge

Observation Lounge

It may only be Royal Clipper that has an Observation Lounge but it’s still an ideal spot to settle in for a few drinks before heading off to bed. Located in the forward position of the main deck, the bright nights will reveal exactly where you are going and ensure you don’t miss any of the passing scenery. Whilst other areas may feature live music and entertainment, the lounge is a somewhere for quiet reflection or gentle conversation.

Tropical Bar

Tropical Bar

If it is live music and entertainment that you’re looking for, the Tropical Bar is the place to go. Your evening could be punctuated by local performers coming on board, the crew revealing their hidden skills in the talent show or resident musicians playing some well-known songs. All the time, you’ll have an extensive cocktail menu at your disposal – fantastic if the night is still young and you want the party to continue.

Your Cabin

Cabin Drinks

All of the above options involve you enjoying the company of your fellow cruisers. However, if you would rather spend some quality time with your family or loved one, your cabin is a great option when deciding where to enjoy a post-dinner tipple. Whether you take your favourite cocktail from the Tropical Bar with you or see what delights the mini-bar has on offer, these peaceful surroundings can provide special moments on a busy cruise. This is even more the case if you have your own private balcony. It means you can continue to enjoy the balmy evening and sip your drink of choice under the stars.
