    Tall ships cruise

    Jane's verdict:

    It’s all aboard Star Clippers’ handsome vessels for a ship-shape honeymoon evoking the era of Captain Cook. Whether you want to laze on deck under fluttering white sails or help with the rigging, you’ll feel like you’re discovering new worlds as you stop at intimate ports of call which the big cruise liners simply can’t reach.

    Star Clippers says

    What could be more romantic than watching the sun set over the ocean together beneath thousands of feet of billowing sails? Then waking up in a beautiful wood-lined cabin to the sound of lapping waves?

    • Winter in Caribbean

    Star Clippers operates fully-crewed sailing voyages on board three magnificent tall ships, cruising the Mediterranean, Central America and the Caribbean.

    European cruise itineraries include the idyllic Greek islands, the turquoise waters off Turkey’s coastline, short breaks along the Riviera coast and cruises to Italy, Corsica, Sicily, Montenegro and Croatia. Our ships are able to drop anchor in some of Europe’s most picturesque bays and harbours, inaccessible to larger vessels.

    In the Caribbean, our head-turning fleet sails between palm-fringed beaches, cosmopolitan resorts and the bustling harbours of the region’s many tropical islands. If you want to, you can join beach barbecues, deck-top sundowners and watersports organised by the ship’s crew.

    For those with a taste of adventure, we sail from Puerto Caldera on the west coast of Costa Rica on two alternate itineraries to Nicaragua or Panama. Attractions include white-sand beaches, active volcanoes and unique cloud forest ecosystems, with the chance to spot some of the world’s most diverse wildlife.

    Cruises start from just £550 pp for a three-night short cruise and £1,160 pp for a week, full-board. Port taxes are extra.

    Special honeymoon packages include the option of an on-board blessing by the captain, flowers and champagne on arrival.
