Top Tips

Most of team, friends and family have experienced a Star Clipper sailing perhaps some more than once so we thought it might be nice to share with you some of their “top tips” on what they thought you might find useful.

  • Flat shoes! (Best for on ship, especially when sailing or drinking)
  • Don’t miss afternoon tea on the ship (It’s great)
  • Make sure your on deck when you set off (amazing atmosphere, music and sights)
  • Take closed toe shoes if you want to climb the crows nest
  • The river tubing excursion in Dominica is so much fun, a relaxing meander down the river with a spectacular green backdrop, typical of the Caribbean – a shore excursion worth forking out for
  • Pack some pirate essentials if travelling to the Caribbean – ‘Pirate Night’ on board is a great opportunity to dress up, even an eye patch will do

We hope to update this list for you frequently so check back and see what else is new.
