Star Clippers Caribbean sailings discounted


#expeditioncruising

Explore the Swashbuckling history of the Caribbean with 35% off Star Clippers Caribbean sailings



Star clippers is offering up to 35% off the regular price of each of the four different seven nights itineraries in the Caribbean until 30 July.

There are four different seven night itineraries that Star Clippers operate in the Caribbean - two out of Barbados - Windward and Grenadine Islands (on the flagship Royal Clipper) and two out of St Maarten - Treasure and Leeward Islands (aboard Star Clipper). They all are weekly departures from November 2014 until March 2015.

Take in destinations such as Anguilla, where you can wander up the beach to Johnno’s, a bar adorned with posters of Ella and Miles. Then there is the eerie beach boulder field called the Baths whose nearby island of Jost Van Dyke has one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean and by afternoon it becomes one of the most lively after the flow of rum from the Soggy Dollar Bar.

Discover Nevis, an island dotted with old sugar plantations, some of them now charming inns, many with interesting histories and where the diving is definitely out of this world. Dominated by the perilously steep cliffs of Mt. Scenery, this small Dutch island didn't even have a road around it until 1951. Guadeloupe looks like a butterfly from the air. Its giant wings are actually two islands, separated by the Rivière Salée, a natural salt water channel. Basse Terre, the southern or leeward part of Guadeloupe, is lush and rugged, dominated by La Soufrière. This 4,800-ft volcano has a stream of boiling water gushing from the top, reminding you that this is still very much alive.

These are just some of the places Star Clippers' graceful ships will take you to whilst the waves gently lap against a wind driven hull and the dolphins play in the curling bow wave. Come aboard for the romance of sailing aboard the largest true fully rigged sailing ship. Feel the elation of those mariners of long ago as thousands of square feet of sail unfurl above you.

Prices for the seven night Caribbean cruises start from $1845 per person twin share and include all meals, tea and coffee onboard, water sports, activities and port charges and gratuities. The 35% off discounted price is valid until 30th July 2014 with weekly departures from November 2014 until March 2015.
