Star Clippers to offer debut French Open package in 2023.

The specialist cruise line has confirmed details of a French Riviera sailing paired with highly sought-after French Open hospitality tickets, taking place in Paris in June 2023. This is the first time Star Clippers has offered an overseas tennis tournament experience alongside their unique sailing experiences.

The 10-night package, which departs on 31st May 2023 and starts at £4,759pp, offers a 3-night pre-cruise stay at Paris’ Plaza Tour Eiffel Hotel, followed by a 7-night Cannes roundtrip on board Star Clipper. Daytime session tickets for Philippe-Chatrier Court on 1st June 2023 are included, as well as Pavilion Grandstand Hospitality, access to the private rooftop terrace, a Rolland-Garros gift and refreshments throughout the day. Ports of call on board Star Clipper, which departs from Cannes on 3rd June 2023, include Portoferraio (Elba), Alghero (Sardinia), Ajaccio (Corsico) and Monaco (France).

The partnership comes after the phenomenal response to a Rome Ryder Cup package which took place in September 2022 and saw guests experience the thrill of an Amalfi Coast sailing combined with the world-renowned golf tournament, which is now being repeated for 2023.

Star Clippers operates three of the world’s largest and tallest fully-crewed sailing vessels. The ships can drop anchor in smaller harbours and visit ports often untouched by larger cruise ships and providing guests with the amenities and atmosphere of a private yacht.

High standards of service are provided by an attentive crew and all three ships have expansive teak decks, swimming pools, informal dining, a convivial Tropical Bar on deck and a comfortable piano bar and are large enough to offer first class accommodation and dining.

The two smaller ships, Star Flyer and Star Clipper take 166 guests each, with a crew of 74, while Royal Clipper carries 227 with a crew of 106.
