Star Clippers Announces New Deployments in Europe and Asia

Royal Clipper

Star Clippers announced new destinations for their fleet of tall ships in the Mediterranean and Southeast Asia with departures beginning in April 2020, all of which are available for booking now.

In the Mediterranean, new port calls for the 227-passenger Royal Clipper include Stintino in Sardinia, Propriano in Corsica, and Vis, Korcula and Zadar in Croatia. In Southeast Asia, Star Clippers has created several brand new itineraries that will include a visit to Cambodia for the first time, and will vary port of calls on the Thai, Malay and Indonesian archipelagos.

The Star Clipper will begin calling on Cambodia during a newly launched 11-night round trip itinerary out of Ko Samui, Thailand.

Cambodian ports of call include the island of Koh Rong and Sihanoukville. An optional overnight excursion will be available for passengers wishing to visit the temple complex of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap. Many other new port calls in Southeast Asia will have the ship dropping anchor in Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia. 

The Royal Clipper will again be sailing in the Western Mediterranean during summer 2020, with itineraries departing from Venice, Rome (Civitavecchia) and Cannes, calling on many new ports.

“Due to our ships’ relatively shallow drafts, we are able to drop anchor in ports and harbors inaccessible to large cruise ships, enabling us to continually vary our itineraries,” said Mikeal Krafft, Star Clippers Owner and President. “Summer 2020 looks to be another exciting sailing season for us, we’re already taking bookings and the new destinations are likely to sell out first.”

The brand’s newest vessel, Flying Clipper, will debut in 2019, the company said.
