Item Description

Authentic Sailing adventure on the Star Clipper.

Please click this link to see dates, stops, and details about the Caribbean Cruises out of St Maarten. (Dutch Antilles) 

A true clipper ship, the Star Clipper reflects her proud heritage in every inch of polished brass. The ship is intimate, with room for just 170 passengers, but spacious accommodations and expansive teak decks provide ample space for relaxation or recreation. Lounge at the indoor-outdoor Tropical Bar and Piano Bar or curl up in front of the fireplace in the Edwardian-style library. Antique prints and paintings of famous sailing ships please the eye, while teak and gleaming mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers' proud nautical heritage. All cabins have marble-lined bathrooms with showers and include double or twin beds that can be converted to queen-size beds. Also included are a television with in-house video, direct dial telephone and hair dryer.

St Maarten:  Flying two flags, this island is half-French and half-Dutch. Cruise ships more commonly call on the Dutch side of St. Maarten, known for its shop-lined, narrow lanes and daytime casinos. Island tours, cruising on an America's Cup yacht and snorkeling excursions are offered in Philipsburg. Golfers should check out Mullet Bay.
