In line with the Star Clippers belief that cruises are more enjoyable without restrictions and formalities, we would not presume to dictate either your seating preferences or a dress code. On all of our ships, there are no set times at which you should dine and you are free to sit with whomever you like (including officers who are known to eat amongst the guests). Leave your black tie and ball gowns behind, relax, and make yourself at home within the casual elegance that is a Star Clippers cruise.
If you are searching for the perfect way to begin your lives together, a Star Clippers honeymoon offers an idyllic combination of adventure and romance in a setting that inspires romance.. For our honeymoon couples, there’s a complimentary bottle of champagne, plate of sweets, a special gift, and a certificate signed by the Captain for all honeymooners who have proof they married within three months of their sailing.
A Grand Voyage combines back-to-back itineraries to form one epic adventure. Set sail on an in-depth exploration to some of the most intimate and exclusive destinations spanning the Mediterranean. With extended itineraries ranging from 12 to 18 glorious nights and calls at an interesting collection of ports, guests are able to explore several countries in one sailing and become deeply immersed in the culture, beauty and history of the region. Imagine visiting seven countries on one sailing or embarking on a Grand Voyage with over a dozen ports in a single country.
All the three ships sail Grand Voyages in the spring, summer, and into the idyllic climes of fall.
