Star Clippers sailings appeal to cruisers with a sense of history. All you old-school sailors who long for the days of billowing masts can experience a little modern-day pampering with a casual feel on this cruise line’s four- and five-masted clipper ships. And with new sales on fall and winter Caribbean itineraries, the line’s current prices are throwbacks to yesteryear.
You can find savings of 50 percent off per person on the Star Clipper’s November 25, December 9, and December 16 Caribbean departures. Fares begin at $888 for seven-night sailings. The Star Clipper can carry 170 passengers and sails a Leeward Islands itinerary, as well as a “Treasure Islands” voyage that calls in Anguilla, Virgin Gorda, Norman Island, Jost van Dyke, St. Kitts, and St. Barts.
Or, you can save 45 percent on Royal Clipper cruises. Prices for seven-night Caribbean sailings start at $1,031 on the November 26 departure, $976 on December 10, and $839 on December 17. The 227-passenger ship sails Windward Islands and Grenadine Islands itineraries.
Even better, you can put the money you’ll save toward that vintage car or antique armoire you’ve always wanted.
