Star Clippers adds new glamourous fly-rail-sail departure


Star Clippers UK has added a new 7 night cruise & stay holiday, taking in the glamour of the Mediterranean and including three nights in the Italian town of Positano followed by a four night sailing on board the head-turning, five-masted tall ship Royal Clipper.

The holiday starts with a three night half board stay at the Hotel Conc d’Or, right in the centre of Positano, with sea-facing terraces and a small jacuzzi pool. The town itself has long been a haunt of celebrities, writers and artists and rises from the deep blue of the Mediterranean in a vertical riot of colour.

Rail transfers from Naples to Rome continue the week with a sailing from Rome Civitavecchia on board Star Clippers’ elegant and glamorous flag-ship, Royal Clipper. After sailing from Rome, the ship calls into Corsica, making two stops at Bonifacio and Calvi, before dropping anchor in the Bay of Monaco and finally Cannes.

Bookings made before 31st January 2020 have an early booking saving of 10% bringing the price down to £2,219pp, including return flights from Gatwick, land and rail transfers between airports, hotel, rail stations and ship, 3 nights half board hotel accommodation and 4 nights on board Royal Clipper, with all meals. Flights from Leeds Bradford and Birmingham are also available, at a supplement.

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.
