Star Clippers Cruise Turkish Riviera

In the era of mega cruise liners, the 170-passenger luxury yacht Star Flyer will open up new horizons in July and August with visits to a string of tiny ports in the acclaimed  Turkish Riviera, often inaccessible to big ships.

A true clipper ship that blends the romance of sail with on-board pampering, the 110m Star Flyer will operate three 'Secret Turkey' seven-night round-trip fly-cruise/stay cruises from the Greek Island of Rhodes on July 17 and 31 and on August 14.

Prices start at $5599 from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth and include return flights to Athens with Emirates, one-night at the Plaka Hotel in Athens and an Olympic Airways flight from Athens to Rhodes.

Ports of call off the beaten track include five Turkish ports along the pristine 'turquoise coast'  -- Olympus, first settled in 200BC; the stunning cliff-top city of Antalya; Kemer; and the two most popular havens for yachtsmen, Kekova and Gocek.

Star Flyer also calls at the most easterly of the Greek Islands, Katellorizon.
