Have you climbed the crow’s nest on our ships? Do you know how high it is?
The first platform is between 20-23 meters (66-75 feet) from the water level and about 15 meters (49 feet) to the deck level. The second platform (not accessible for passengers) is 40 meters from the water level, which is about 130 feet.
Star Clippers will be sailing in Indonesian waters for the first time in 2017, offering a choice of 19 departures between May 6 and October 14, 2017 with sailings of 7, 10, 11 and 14 nights, from Bali and Singapore, including Bali round trips and itineraries from Bali to Singapore and reverse on the Star Clipper. These Indonesian itineraries offer complimentary water sports, including snorkeling, kayaking and canoeing off many of the beaches and islands in this exotic part of the world.
Some memorable highlights include:
· A stop in Wera, where guests will have the opportunity to see the `Pinisi’ traditional Indonesian sailing ships, with their long, elegant bow, towering twin masts, streamlined wooden hull and seven billowing sails.
· An excursion to Mount Bromo, an active volcano in East Java, 7.641 ft., set in the middle of a vast plain and protected nature reserve known as the “Sea of Sand.”
· A visit to the Borobudur Temple Compound, in the southern part of central Java, built in the 8th and 9th centuries, and one of the greatest Buddhist monuments in the world.
· A stop at the Pura Ulun Danu Bratan water temple on Bali, built in 1663. Resembling a vast, layered Christmas Tree the temple complex is on the shores of Lake Bratan, with its cold, tropical climate, and the temple complex is used for offerings ceremonies to the Balinese water, lake and river goddess, Dewi Danu.
Find your center and listen to your breath, with complimentary yoga on board select Star Clippers sailings on all three ships in 2016. The yoga classes will be open to all guests and all fitness levels, and are offered on a complimentary basis. The classes will be available in the mornings and afternoons, contingent on the port schedules. Yoga focuses on strength training and flexibility, and is an incredible benefit to your body, especially while traveling.
Traveling around the world with parents, siblings, kids, grandkids, and assorted family members can be an enriching assortment of shared experiences. What better way to experience the world then on a small luxury sailing ship?
On Star Clippers guests of all ages will find their happy place aboard. There are no rigid schedule and no overwhelming sense that there’s not enough time. Families can fill their day with activities or nothing at all. The Captain’s daily briefing on deck is wonderfully informative and a chance to hear some great story telling from our enthusiastic leaders. And there are events and activities for the whole family, such as knot tying, navigation classes, athletics, lounging on the net, and climbing the mast.
