Star Clippers To Cruise Baltic Sea In 2012

Star Clippers has announced it is to cruise the Baltic Sea in 2012. The sailing ship line has unveiled plans to send its 170-passenger Star Flyer to the region in May for a series of voyages from Germany and Sweden. The 4-masted sail ship will also operate out of Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Kiel, Oslo and Southampton on voyages tracing the ancient Viking routes.


Ranging between 3 and 11 nights, the itineraries from May to August 2012 take cruisers on visits to 37 Northern European ports. They include several destinations not visited by larger ships, such as Arendal, Borkum, Esbjerg, Hanko, Karlshamn, Klaipeda, Simrishamn and Sylt, offering a different perspective together with the unique tall ship atmosphere onboard for travellers.


On selected cruises, guests also have the opportunity to participate in celebratory sailing parades when Star Flyer joins other tall ships in the German ports of Hamburg, Kiel and Rostock (Warnemünde). In conjunction with the sailings, Star Clippers will also offer pre- and post-cruise tours of London and Stockholm.


Founded in 1991, Sweden-based Star Clippers operates 3 of the largest barquentine and full-rigged sailing ships in the world (Star Clipper, Star Flyer and Royal Clipper). Authentic recreations of the classic sailing ships that plied the seas during the 19th century, each vessel offers the amenities, activities and atmosphere of a private yacht.
