Star Clippers’ Flagship, the Royal Clipper
The Royal Clipper is an awesome sight to behold. Inspired by the legendary ship of the early 1900s, the Preussen, the Royal Clipper boasts 42 sails and is the only five-masted and full-rigged sailing ship to follow. As with all of Star Clippers’ vessels, the Royal Clipper combines comfort and modern day luxury with traditional elegance from the grand age of sailing. A classic example of this is the modernisation of the three crow-nests. Not only can guests climb the mast to visit these, but once they arrive at the crow-nests they will discover that elegant settees have thoughtfully been placed there. Other fabulous features of the Royal Clipper include an atrium spanning three decks which lets in gleaming rays of sunshine from its glass ceiling. The spa and health club is also a real draw due to its impressive underwater portholes – beat that for a workout with a difference! This impressive flagship accommodates a maximum of 227 guests and therefore has a friendly, intimate atmosphere.
