Star Clipper Cruise Expert

Star Flyer under full sail in St Kitts.
Star Flyer under full sail in St Kitts.

We've been on many mega oceanliners , so we decided  to try a short three day trip on Star Clipper's Star Flyer, sailing out of St Martin.  We are boaters, cruisers though, so a cruise on a true sailboat was an exciting prospect.  But we were a bit anxious too.

The Star Flyer was built in 1991 but it is terrific condition.  The wood is beautifully maintained.  The cabins were a bit small, but that is to be expected on most criuselines, but especially sailboats.  

The food quality was very good with plenty of selections. On many cruise lines, the prices of wine, beer and liquor tend to be a bit on the high side.  Not true with Star Clipper.  Everything was very reasonably priced.

We sailed during the night.  I think this is the only negative for me.  I personally would have enjoyed the sailing experience during the day.  As it was I found that the front/back and side to side motion on the ship interfered with my sleep.  This might not be the case for you.

This type of sailing experience is pretty low key, but because of the size of the ships you are able to visit ports not normally accessed by the mainstream cruise lines.  On this cruise we departed from  St Martin, visiting St Kitts and St Barts.  Star Clippers does offer some optional tours but they are limited.

Everyone should use a travel agent

Beth has always been very responsive to any inquires I have had for vacations. She runs through various options and includes some suggestions I hadn't thought of including getting us on chartered flights, something you don't get booking yourself.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Beth Baran responded:
Thank you Carrie. Let me know when you need help in the future. Beth

Reviewed By Danny O - Beavercreek, OH | Traveled to Negril ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Beth has simplified our travel decision making and consistently identified vacation options that we would have missed through our own internet searches. We like working with Beth because she delivers personal insight that provides more confidence than online reviews from popular travel sights. Beth has planned memorable vacations for us to: Montego Bay, Punta Cana, Playa del Carmen, The Bahamas, and Negril. Jamaica.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
