Star Clippers fleet is comprised of true sailing vessels that sail solely under wind power whenever possible. Children love watching the sails go up and down, while older kids and adults enjoy the onboard lectures and classes. Family members of all ages will love the adventurous and active experiences offered, like hiking, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving. At night, the whole family can gather for “sail away,” a truly photo-worthy experience.

 

Kids will be fascinated to learn Star Clippers operates three of the world’s largest and tallest sailing vessels, with the 227-guest Royal Clipper holding the Guinness World Record for being the largest and only five-masted, full-rigged sailing ship in service today.
