New sailing routes and port calls for summer 2021


Chalki, Symi and Kastellorizo, three lesser known islands in Greece’s Dodecanese, are new destinations for Star Clippers for summer 2021, as is the picture postcard port of Fethiye in Turkey, known for its azure waters, golden sands, sea-front bazaars and forested mountains.

The four new port calls have been revealed in Star Clippers’ new Summer 2021 Preview Brochure and are included in Royal Clipper’s roundtrip sailings from Athens on two sailings in July 2021.

For the remainder of the summer Royal Clipper will sail Italy’s islands and coastline, visiting Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro and Corsica, as well as beaches and harbours along the Cote d’Azur.

More Greek and Turkish itineraries can be booked for sailings on board Star Flyer, which will be located in the Eastern Mediterranean for the duration of summer 2021.

The third vessel in the fleet, Star Clipper, will remain in South East Asia, making a myriad of port calls in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia and Borneo, visiting isolated paradise beaches, calling into ports and harbours inaccessible by larger cruise ships and dropping anchor to allow guests to explore temples, markets, forests and idyllic islands.

Both Star Flyer and Royal Clipper will also make transatlantic crossings to relocate between the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, in April and October 2021, offering guests the opportunity to enjoy complete tranquillity mid-ocean, with spectacular unpolluted night skies, a variety of on board activities, lectures and presentations, and the invigorating experience of sailing on historically recreated, majestic tall ships.

The new sailing programme includes up to 20% saving off all bookings made by 31st January 2021, with prices starting from £742 pp (Croatia & Slovenia, 3 nights aboard Royal Clipper, 9th June 2021) and features sailings from 3 nights to 14 nights duration, with an additional 5% saving for back-to-back cruises and return guests.

Star Clipper’s three magnificent tall ships offer the exhilaration of sailing beneath billowing sails, never far from the water, in the company of around 200 like-minded guests. Relax on the scrubbed teak deck, beneath billowing sails. Lie in the bowsprit net as the bow slices through the waves. Climb the rigging up to 67’ (over 20 metres) for a magnificent birds eye view of the sun decks and pools, amid the sails and the rigging. Enjoy long, relaxing days at sea, and many more ashore, discovering far off and idyllic islands, beaches, small villages and lush, tropical forests, calling into small ports and harbours inaccessible by larger vessels.

Notes to editors:

Star Clippers operates three of the world’s largest and tallest fully-crewed sailing vessels, with a new ship currently under construction. 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 170 guests each, with a crew of 70, while Royal Clipper carries 227 with a crew of 106.
