Star Clipper Returns to Mediterranean for 2022 Season – Book by October 31 to receive $600 savings per cabin

The Royal Clipper in VeniceStar Clippers has announced that its namesake tall sailing ship, Star Clipper, will return to ply the blue waters of the Mediterranean for the 2022 season. The vessel, which has been sailing around Southeast Asia, will complete the 2021/22 season in Thailand before making its way to the Med to join sister ships Royal Clipper and Star Flyer.

In fact, 2022 will mark the first time since 2016 that all three Star Clippers ships will sail together in the Mediterranean.

All told, Star Clipper will offer 29 sailings in summer 2020, ranging from five to 16 days with rates starting at $1,300 per person based on single occupancy. Guests who book their 2022 Star Clipper Med sailing by October 31, 2020 will receive $600 savings per cabin.

As part of the transition, Star Clipper will depart Safaga, Egypt in April 2022 and sail though the famous Suez Canal, offering guests the unique opportunity to pass through the artificial sea-level waterway which connects the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea on board an authentic tall sailing ship. Once back in Mediterranean waters, Star Clipper will offer a variety of itineraries including Yachtman’s Paradise – a seven-night sailing between Istanbul and Athens – as well as the perpetual favorite – round trips from Rome and Cannes from May through October.

“It’s hugely exciting to be welcoming Star Clipper back to the Mediterranean to join her sisters in summer 2022,” said Mikael Krafft, Owner of Star Clippers. “While we’re sad to be leaving Asia for now, we’ve seen a steady, growing demand for our popular Med sailings and we’re confident this is going to be welcome news for both trade partners and guests. Equally, with the last season of Asia sailings taking place during winter 2021/22, we are anticipating a huge demand for these sailings before Star Clipper departs.”

For guests looking to experience the magic Southeast Asia onboard a tall ship before the Star Clipper heads to Europe, a variety of sailings around Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore are now available for booking.

For more than 25 years, Star Clippers has been introducing travelers to the thrill of modern tall ship sailing to remote ports in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Indonesia and Far East. The company operates three of the world’s largest and tallest sailing vessels: Star Clipper and Star Flyer are traditional clipper ships with modern amenities carrying 170 guests, while the 227-guest Royal Clipper holds the Guinness World Record for being the largest and only five-masted, full-rigged sailing ship in service today. All three ships have expansive teak decks, swimming pools, informal dining, convivial tropical bars on deck and piano lounges.
