Royal Clipper

Royal Clipper is the world’s largest fully-rigged sailing ship and is truly breath-taking. Catering to just a small number of guests, she has every comfort you could wish for, including fantastic dining with buffet breakfasts and lunches and a formal 6-course dinner service.

There are fewer traditional entertainment facilities than you’d find on other ocean ships, but the character of the ship more than makes up for it. Plus, if you’re feeling active, she carries water sport equipment to let you try scuba diving, snorkelling and more when she is anchored in port.

Dining aboard the Royal Clipper is an elegant experience, and one that goes hand-in-hand with the traditional sailing feel. Dining takes place in the ship’s magnificent atrium, and the chefs on board specialise in preparing fresh seafood, grilled meats and delicious salads. Breakfast and lunch take the form of self-serve buffets, while dinner offers more traditional table-service dining. The ship’s piano bar offers a continental breakfast option for early risers, and this is the place to go for tea and coffee 24 hours a day – and even special barbecue lunches on selected days during your voyage.


Royal Clipper´s staterooms and suites are elegant and spacious, with full-size marble-floored bathrooms and air conditioning for complete comfort during your cruise. Royal Clipper offers a choice of Inside, Outside, Veranda and Suite accommodations – with each boasting double or twin beds and private bathrooms. Suites and Verandah also include minibar, whirlpool bath, separate sitting areas and marble bathrooms.


Entertainment on board Royal Clipper comes in the form of talent shows and local guest performers. The Tropical Bar on the main deck is the place to go for cocktails in a lively setting, and it’s here that your nightly entertainment takes place. Alternatively, you could head to the ship’s Piano Bar, a great place to relax with some live music and meet others who share your passion for travel.


You’ll find three pools situated on the spacious sun deck of Royal Clipper, the perfect way to cool off during your time in the sun. For a good workout, you’ll find a fitness centre on board, as well as a great choice of complimentary water sports equipment. There’s also the opportunity to climb the mast and take a seat in the crow’s nest, for incredible views of the sea and your port destinations.

Royal Clipper cruises are designed to appeal to adults with a love for the traditional sailing experience. For this reason there aren’t any children’s programmes or facilities available on board, and so Royal Clipper cruises aren’t really geared towards young families.
