Star Clippers puts all its ships in the Mediterranean for summer 2010

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On March - 2 - 2009

Star Clippers announced that it will place all three of its tall ships in the Mediterranean for the 2010 summer season. It will be the first time since 2007 that the full fleet has sailed the Med at the same time.

In the spring Royal Clipper, Star Clipper and Star Flyer will reposition from their winter homes in the Caribbean, Far East and Tahiti, to begin their Mediterranean deployment.

Star Clipper will continue round-trip Athens routes, while Royal Clipper will maintain itineraries round-trip Civitavecchia (Rome) and between Civitavecchia and Venice.
Star Flyer is scheduled to sail seven-day round-trip Monaco itineraries, as well as Eastern Mediterranean and Turkey cruises from Rhodes.

Mikael Krafft, owner and president of Star Clippers, said since the economy is in “challenging” times it was best to bring all three ships closer to where the line’s guests reside and have them sail itineraries with proven success. Additionally, Krafft stated that redeploying Star Flyer to the Mediterranean with the other two ships ultimately will make taking a Star Clippers vacation more affordable for guests.

Star Flyer will continue its Tahiti itineraries until February 21, 2010, after which it will make a ‘Grand Pacific Crossing’ from Papeete to Panama City. The ship will then sail a Panama Canal cruise that ends in St. Maarten, followed by an Atlantic crossing to Lisbon.

Details of the Mediterranean itineraries and the schedule for the remainder of 2010 will be available in the coming weeks.
