Star Clippers has revealed a series of themed cruises throughout 2020 to help its passengers master a skill while relaxing on voyages to the Mediterranean, South East Asia and the Caribbean.

Yoga with Star Clippers

Groups can take part in yoga sessions on a themed Star Clippers sailing.

The cruises will take place on board its three striking tall ships, Royal Clipper, Star Clipper and Star Flyer, with activities and sessions including yoga, photography, chef masterclasses and even a life coach to help improve mental wellbeing.

Fay McCormack, general manager for Star Clippers UK said: “There is always something of interest happening on board Star Clippers’ tall ships, from climbing the rigging to learning navigational skills, taking part in complimentary water sports, to morning gym.

“Having the speakers, fitness and yoga practitioners on board enhances the experience of a tall ship sailing even more, offering guests the opportunity to relax, improve mind and body or hone up skills.”

Depending on the sailing and availability, Star Clippers is usually able to offer groups of 15 and above special rates. 

This includes one free berth for every 15 passengers booked, as well as on board extras such as a complimentary one-hour cocktail party (usually with house wines). The operator is also able to offer pre-purchased group drink packages as an optional extra.

Royal Clipper

Royal Clipper is the largest of the three ships.

All three ships have teak decks, swimming pools, informal dining, an on-deck tropical bar and a piano bar.
