Cheers to the Crew!




The Star Clippers crew is considered to be among the friendliest at sea!



From the captain of each ship to the water sports crew and from the bartenders to the men and women raising the sails, this team is full of warm, welcoming and passionate individuals.



Below is an excerpt from a Cruise Critic review of the Star Clippers crew.











Ship: Star Clipper

Sail date: June, 2015

Destination: Greece

Embarkation Point: Athens (Piraeus)



The Captain of the ship was extremely passenger-attentive and allowed us deck access during sailing and, to some extent, during port entry and exit. We could help hoist sails if we wanted to and my, what a hard job that is even with 20 passengers pulling the sail lines. Land trips - all optional but with extra, reasonable cost - were very informative and led by good local guides. When steps or uneven ground could be a problem for those with walking or balance difficulties we were warned beforehand. Every member of the crew was absolutely accommodating and totally delightful to sail with. Other passengers are very collegial and many seemed like old friends by the end of the trip.

Nothing But Blue Skies in the Med

Thanks to journalist Steve MacNaull for sending in these fabulous shots from his Mediterranean cruise on Star Clipper.

Star Clippers ships are so beautiful, but it's hard to get a great perspective shot while onboard. That's why guests are offered the opportunity to hop in a zodiac or tender boat, cameras in tow, and take their best shot from the sea!



The crew hams it up on the bowsprit net and guests snap away. No matter what souvenirs you pick up along the way, a few photos can be the best keepsake of all to remember your Star Clippers journey.



It looks like Steve had some luck with the weather in the Med -- have you ever seen skies so blue? Look our for more of Steve's photos in coming posts.

Shades of Gray in Costa Rica

Enjoy this black & white snapshot of life at sea courtesy of Star Clippers Facebook fan Susan Pilcher. These shots were taken during Susan's weeklong journey on Star Flyer through Costa Rica. It's nice to see the beautiful photos of our hard-working crew looking out to the horizon and up to the sails. We're grateful for all they do.


















Thanks, Susan!
