Love on the High Seas: Get Romantic This Valentine’s Day with Star Clippers

Travel Agent News for Star Clippers 2019 Promotions

Book by February 14 to Receive Complimentary Massage, Champagne, Onboard Credit and Sweet Treats


Miami, FL (January 28th, 2019) – A sailing cruise on board one of the world’s largest clipper ships is the essence of romance—arriving at exotic ports of call under full sail, standing on deck as the nautical crew hoists and lowers the sails, is hard to beat. With sailings in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, and Southeast Asia, Star Clippers’ ships offer a dreamy setting for couples looking to explore some of the world’s most beautiful destinations while feeling as though they’re sailing aboard a private yacht (the largest vessel has only 227 passengers).


Opportunities for romance abound on a Star Clippers ship. The best spot for cozying up can be found in the bowsprit netting—a hammock-like area stretching 30 feet forward of the bow where guests can lay suspended over the ocean. In addition to affording one of the most unique and exciting settings on any cruise ship afloat, it’s also an ideal spot to spend some quiet time and maybe even pop the big question. More adventurous guests might opt to climb the mast to the Crow’s Nest for unbeatable views of the ocean, landscape and ship below. For those who like to make their romantic getaways more “official,” the crew of the Star Clipper can do a vow renewal ceremony onboard.


To sweeten the deal for couples seeking to book a romantic getaway this Valentine’s Day, all guests booking a voyage on any 2019 or 2020 Star Clippers sailing will receive a complimentary one-hour massage (per person/maximum 2 per cabin), $50 onboard credit, sweet treats upon arrival and a bottle of champagne. This special is valid for all new bookings made by February 14 using the promo code: VALENTINES19. Some restrictions apply.


Star Clippers is always expanding their sailing portfolio and adding new ports of call around the world. New in 2019, Star Clippers is offering a Greece itinerary celebrating the popular musical Mamma Mia, while in Indonesia a new sailing route takes guests to Brunei and ports along the island of Borneo. In 2020, the flagship Royal Clipper will visit several new ports in the Mediterranean, including Stintino in Sardinia, Propriano in Corsica, and Vis, Korcula and Zadar in Croatia. And in South East Asia, Star Clippers has created several brand new itineraries that will include a visit to Cambodia for the first time, and will vary port of calls on the Thai, Malay and Indonesian archipelagos.


For more than 25 years, Star Clippers has been introducing travelers to the thrill of modern tall ship sailing to remote ports in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore. The company operates three of the world’s largest and tallest sailing vessels: Star Clipper and Star Flyer are traditional clipper ships with modern amenities carrying 170 guests, while the 227-guest Royal Clipper holds the Guinness World Record for being the largest and only five-masted, full-rigged sailing ship in service today. All three ships have expansive teak decks, swimming pools, informal dining, convivial tropical bars on deck and piano lounges.  The brand’s newest vessel, Flying Clipper, will debut in the summer of 2019.
