Where Star Clipper sails
Dining & décor
All Star Clippers ships feature open-seating for meals in an elegant dining room. Passengers can also enjoy the indoor/outdoor Tropical Bar as well as the Piano Bar and an Edwardian-style library, complete with a fireplace.
The décor of Star Clipper is reminiscent of the grand age of sail. Passengers will be surrounded by rich, deep colors and antique prints and paintings of famous sailing ships line the walls.
Some cabins on the Star Clipper open onto the deck, and most only vary slightly in size and layout. The biggest distinguishing factor between categories is location on the ship. The higher the cabin category, the higher or more central they might be located on board.
All accommodations feature a private bath and include a TV and DVD player, a phone, thermostat control, a private safe, hair dryer, 110-volt/American outlets and nightly turndown service.
