Star Flyer & sister Star Clipper

Setting Sail

On May 8, 2010, I set sail on Star Flyer, sister to Star Clipper. Both are 360 feet long, and each carries only 170 guests.

I’m not quite sure what to expect, but I’m told that accommodations are spacious, the teak decks are expansive and that nothing can be more relaxing that sailing under a light breeze in the Mediterranean.

  1. Hi, I have done 3 sailings on Star Clippers, one transatlantic, one Far East and 14 days in the Caribbean.
    Think you will be pleasantly surprised with accommodations and facilities on board, will be interested to hear your experiences.
    Have a great trip !

  2. Can you check to see if handicapped clients can travel with the Star?
    Also do they accomodate Vegan’s dietary needs?

    Thanks have a great time…………Dan and Nancy

  3. As a followup to previous questions regarding handicapped clients would someone with some mobility limitations such as walking up long flights of stairs or long distances without stopping considers cruising on the Star Flyer or Clipper

  4. To those who have asked about mobility, I would not recommend Star Flyer to someone with limited mobility. The tenders alone can be challenging as can the walk up the long gangway stairs. Maneuvering around the ship can also be challenging.

  5. About the Vegan meals, yes, Star Flyer accommodates. I had Vegan last night, an excellent dish of sauteed vegetables and rice. Also, I find the portions to be extremely reasonable – not too much as to leave you overly full and bloated!
