When most of us picture the Caribbean, we envision a row of mega-liners docked side-by-side in ports of call like St. Thomas or Philipsburg. To believe a few of the mainstream cruise lines, you’d think the average person is terrified of the ocean and is incapable of entertaining themselves. New ships are designed to limit interaction with the sea as much as possible, distracting guests with a never-ending cavalcade of manufactured fun.

Star Clippers doesn’t see the Caribbean that way – and this December, we’re going to have the opportunity to show their Caribbean to you first-hand, as we sail aboard the massive and elegant Royal Clipper – the largest square-rigged tall ship in the world.

Royal Clipper is a traditional sailing ship in every sense, a blend of classic oceangoing vessel and modern cruise ship. Photo courtesy of Star Clippers.

Launched in 2000, the 439-foot long Royal Clipper is minute compared to some of the gargantuan megaships that ply the Caribbean – but she’s a giant in the sailing world.
