Star Clipper ships


I read the June ’06 “Cruising World” column and totally agree with everything Lew Toulmin wrote about the Star Clipper ship. My husband, Tom, and I took the Royal Clipper on its relocation cruise from Barbados to Civitavecchia, Italy, April 16-May 7, ’06. It was a wonderful sailing experience. We couldn’t have asked for better accommodations, crew or meals.

We booked the trip with TravLtips (Flushing, NY; 800/872-8584) at a per-person cost of $3,042 plus $295 in port charges for a category 3 cabin. Airline tickets, transfers and land tours also could be purchased from TravLtips.

We are now planning a trip on Star Flyer in the Far East.
