Star Clippers Americas : Royal Clipper
Inspired by the legendary Tall Ship, Preussen, the Royal Clipper has the proud distinction of being the largest and only five-masted full-rigged sailing ship built since her predecessor was launched at the beginning of the last century. With her complement of 42 sails, Royal Clipper is a splendid sight to behold. You might think she was an apparition from the grand age of sail, but Royal Clipper is as new as tomorrow, boasting state-of-the-art navigation systems and ever comfort and luxury one could wish for. For connoisseurs of sail cruising, the 439-foot Royal Clipper offers the ultimate sea-going experience, balancing the grandeur, adventure and tradition of sailing with the superb sevice, amenities and accommodations of the finest modern yacht. Royal Clipper carries just 227 guests in luxurious style. A full 19,000 square feet of open deck and three swimming pools create a wonderfully spacious and expansive outdoor environment.

The Star Clippers Experience
Help yourself to a continental breakfast with flaky croissants, toasted English muffins or sweet Danish pastries. Or savor a full breakfast of fresh, tropical fruits and crisp bacon, smoked salmon, and omelettes cooked to order. When evening comes, the elegantly appointed dining room becomes the setting for the chef's finest culinary presentations, designed to please both the eye and the palate. All complemented by equally fine wines, and friendly and gracious service.
Friends gather round the Piano Bar and join in singing a few favorites. In the Tropical Bar, the bartender shakes a pitcher full of some delicious cooling concoction. Is there anything more relaxing than this?
Clearly this is not a cruise ship in the ordinary sense. You will find that there are no rigid schedules aboard the Star Flyer. You are free to do as you wish with your days. Local performers are invited onboard to give passengers an authentic taste of the local music and arts.
