Star Clippers is a family company. The Krafft family owns and operates the fleet of record-holding tall ships, and encourages families to take to the sea, sharing their love of travel and sailing between generations.
One guest recently sailed Star Clippers with their children and grandchildren, and had a delightful time, saying,
"A wonderful family experience! This was our sixth Star Clipper cruise but the first that included our grown kids, their spouses and our grandchildren. Every minute of every day was wonderful. The kids had a great time. The crew went to great lengths to make sure the grandchildren had fun ... My eight-year-old granddaughter had the run of the ship; she reminded us of Eloise at the Plaza."
As the only modern-day tall ship fleet, Star Clippers offers an extraordinary vacation for the whole family. Parents and grandparents appreciate visiting the beautiful, cultural and historical ports of the Caribbean and Mediterranean, and children can let their imaginations run wild while cruising on an authentic sailing ship that looks like it’s from the pages of a bedtime story or the latest blockbuster film.
Onboard the ships, kids (and adults) can climb the mast in the safety of a harness for a panoramic view, plunge into a pool with portholes that peek into the dining room and participate in talent shows and pirate-themed parties. Kids and parents alike can kick back in the bowsprit netting and watch the sails billow overhead while looking out for a pod of porpoises. On shore, complimentary watersports like snorkeling and kayaking, and fun active tours keep everyone engaged.
While a Star Clippers sailing is relaxing, there are plenty of educational opportunities, including sailing lessons and historical tours where the whole family can learn about a port or region.
