The World’s Most Romantic `Love Boats’…

15th February 2018

Star Clipper

The graceful tall ships in the Star Clippers’ fleet provide an exceptionally romantic setting for lovers, for a honeymoon, marriage blessing, anniversary or other romantic voyage. Sailing in and out of the world’s most beautiful destinations in an atmosphere of casual elegance, a cruise on one of the three Star Clippers ships is akin to having a fully staffed private yacht. Lay arm in arm on a deck-top sunbed, lie side by side in the bowsprit net with the waves skimming below, or spot dolphins together at dawn from the decks of a magnificent tall ship in full-sail. Make footprints on white sand beaches, snorkel the clear Caribbean waters and drop anchor in small bays and harbours.

Here are the top romantic moments on board a Star Clippers’ tall ship:-

Star-gazing on a sun-warmed deck

Every spring and autumn, Star Clippers’ three ships reposition between their summer and winter cruising areas on long, leisurely voyages across the Atlantic. There’s no better place for escaping the world, sailing across the ocean, lying together hand in hand on sun loungers or gazing up at the millions of stars scattered across an inky-black sky.

A 16 night Barbados to Lisbon crossing sailing aboard Royal Clipper, departing 7th April 2018 costs from £1590pp including all meals on board and port charges.

Make footprints on a Robinson Crusoe island

During summer 2018 the 4-masted Star Clipper will voyage under thousands of feet of billowing sails sailing between lush, culturally unique and exotic port calls and drop anchor close to coconut-white coves that typify Indonesia’s thousands of islands, mirroring a Robinson Crusoe adventure. Make footprints on virgin white sand beaches when the ship calls into tiny jungle-and-sand islands, haloed by crystal clear turquoise sea.

A 7 night eastbound Indonesia sailing on board Star Clipper, departing 19th May 2018, costs from £1495pp including all meals on board and port charges.

Desert island kisses

The deserted islands of the white sand-fringed Tobago Cays in the Grenadines are strictly off limits to larger ships but easily accessible for a graceful clipper. Coconut palms arch over white, sandy beaches, lapped by the turquoise sea, the ideal setting for gathering shells together, or slip away to an even more deserted beach to be alone on this idyllic desert island setting.

Grenadine Islands sailing aboard Royal Clipper on the 19th January 2019 cruise only including port charges from £1640pp

Loving it in Venice

The world’s most beautiful port to sail into or away from is Venice. Stand arm in arm on the decks as the ship glides slowly along the Giudecca Canal, lined with majestic old palaces and churches. Wander hand in hand along the silent canals of the old city, find a shady square for an al fresco lunch a deux, take a gondola ride to see the city from the water while being serenaded by a gondolier.

A 10 night Greece, Montenegro & Croatia sailing on board Star Flyer, departing 25th July 2018 costs from £2315pp including all meals on board and port charges.

Champagne and volcanic fireworks

Sip champagne on the upper decks of a magnificent tall ship while watching one of the world’s most spectacular natural phenomena, the frequent volcanic eruptions of Italy’s `Stromboli’, during a late evening sail-past. Stromboli sends a shower of fire and molten debris up into the air approximately every ten minutes and has been in continuous eruption for 2,000 years.

An 11 night Greece, Montenegro & Croatia sailing on board Star Flyer, departing 14th July 2018, costs from £2540pp including all meals on board and port charges.

Live La Dolce Vita

Wander through the narrow streets of Portofino, a former fishing village on Italy’s north west coast and now one of the most fashionable and romantic towns on the Italian Riviera. Cool down with a limoncello granita in a pretty café on the waterfront, or climb a wooded trail together to reach San Giorgio church overlooking the town for breath-taking views.

A 7-night Corsica & French Riviera sailing on board Star Flyer, departing 2nd June 2018 costs from £1620pp including all meals on board and port charges.

His & Hers massage in Thailand

Sail through the sparkling waters of Thailand and Malaysia, passing spectacular archipelagos, dropping anchor by pristine white sand beaches and exotic destinations such as Phuket, Penang and Singapore, where massages and relaxing pedicures / manicures are a way of life. Take a couples massage together, make footprints in the sand, cuddle up in the ship’s bowsprit net, or climb the rigging together for a hand-in-hand view of the deck and surrounding ocean.

A 7-night Southern Thailand sailing on board Star Clipper, departing 10th November 2018 costs from £1495pp including all meals on board and port charges.
