This journey is an alternative to your typical ocean cruise or resort vacation. See the beauty of the clear blue Caribbean Sea from a romantic sailing ship with cozy accommodations, a casual yet elegant atmosphere, and exquisite service and cuisine. Carrying just 170 passengers the Star Flyer is one of the very few ships that still offer this type of travel at this level of comfort. Start with a couple of nights in Havana to experience the authentic Cuba before embarking our ship. From Cienfuegos the winds take us east to Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, The British Virgin Islands, and finally the Dutch island of St. Maarten. This will be a small group, so space will be limited. Space on our previous Star Clippers cruises sold out within just a few weeks. We encourage you to call and book early to ensure you get your most preferred cabin.

Ports of Call

Star Flyer
Star Clippers

The Star Flyer is as fleet as the wind and as graceful as a swan. A true clipper ship reflecting proud heritage in every inch of her polished brass and gleaming bright work. Step aboard this unique vessel and discover a new age of sail, where the traditions of the past are happily married to the comforts and amenities of the present day. The Star Flyer is a modern cruise ship in every way, created for passengers who love the traditions and romance of the legendary era of sailing ships. She is 360 feet long and carries just 170 guests. Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like traveling on a private yacht. Expansive teak decks with ample space and not one, but two swimming pools are on offer. In fact, you’ll find that this ship offers more outdoor space per passenger than most conventional cruise ships. Staterooms range from 86 to 237 sq ft in size. The décor of the Star Flyer is reminiscent of the grand age of sail. Antique prints and paintings of famous sailing ships please the eye, while teak and gleaming mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers’ proud nautical heritage. All Star Clippers ships feature open-seating dining in an elegantly appointed dining room, the convivial indoor-outdoor Tropical Bar and Piano Bar, and an Edwardian style library where a Belle Époque fireplace glows with a warmth that reflects the friendliness and enthusiasm of Star Clippers’ hospitable officers and crew.
