Looking for something different for your next cruise? Our latest Cruise Ship Tour, in the carousel above, offers a deck-by-deck look at one of the most unusual passenger vessels afloat: sailing line Star Clippers' Royal Clipper.
Measuring 439 feet long and 54 feet at the beam, the five-masted, fully rigged sailing ship is billed as the largest square-rigger at sea and, as can be seen in the tour, it's a sight to behold. With room for 227 passengers, the 5,000-ton vessel is based on the design for Preussen, a legendary German windjammer built in 1902.

Star Clippers' Royal Clipper is a beautiful ship. If you were looking for a different type of cruise ship for your next adventure, this maybe the ship for you. Although it looks like a sailing ship from the early days it has all the amenities of the best luxury cruise ships. I for one would love to sail on this amazing ship.
