Clearly this is not a cruise ship in the ordinary sense. On Star Clippers, you will find that there are no rigid schedules. You are free to do as you wish with your days – and evenings. To entertain you, we bring local performers on board to give passengers an authentic taste of the local music and arts.
So rather than enduring another Broadway revue, you can enjoy the conviviality of fellow shipmates while a live band plays tropical tunes from a real paradise. The Captain and crew are superb improvisers of the kind of light-hearted fun you’ll only find on Star Clippers. The Captain’s daily briefing on deck is wonderfully informative and a chance to hear some great story-telling as well. And there are other events and activities, such as knot tying and navigation classes, that have evolved from Star Clippers’ sailing heritage. In fact, our passengers tell us that it’s the easy-going informality of Star Clippers that makes a cruise with us so enjoyable.
The expression “yachting” is not only a statement about size; it describes a lifestyle aboard the intimate vessels. Chic and stylish, SeaDream’s 56-stateroom twin yachts are favored for their elegant informality, personal award-winning service provided by a crew of 95, inclusive open bar and gratuities, ocean view accommodations, luxury Thai-Certified spa and world-class cuisine.
Discover the “It’s Yachting, Not Cruising” secret that travel experts, our loyal past guests and other cruise enthusiasts are raving about. It’s uniquely exceptional and a must do for those in search of a hidden, refined style of cruising. Enjoy an inclusive experience with premium select spirits, 5-star dining, gratuities and more on SeaDream and enjoy all that yachting has to offer, onboard and shoreside.

We had 10 couples that travel together a few times a year and Celebration Escapes helped us find the perfect Sailing Itinerary that took our breath away. We loved the small ship feel, the personal (almost one on one service), the food and wine. The best part was the small ports and the special surprises Pamala had waiting for us there. We really felt like we got to know the local people and see a more intimate side of these destinations.

This Milestone 20 year Anniversary journey was the most exciting and unique journey we have ever taken on the high seas. Celebration Escapes planned such lovely surprises and special elements for us and we will never forget their special treatment. We never plan a trip without them.

What a fantastic Multi-generational Family Reunion we had sailing on the high seas in style. We had a marvelous trip and Celebration Escapes incorporated special surprises and events that everyone loved. The small ports made it so easy to get into the local environment and we loved that. The ship was extraordinary and our every whim was taken care of. We have living memories now!
