Royal Clipper is the largest, full-rigged sailing ship in the world, boasting state-of-art navigation systems, superb services, and the amenities and accommodations of the finest modern yacht. With her 42 sails, the Royal Clipper is a sight to behold. This is not a cruise ship in the ordinary sense, as you will find that there are no rigid schedules and you are free to do as you wish with your days and evenings.
Royal Clipper features 19,000 square feet of open deck and three swimming pools. The spacious outdoor environment has hidden balconies on either side of the bow, and passenger lookout crows-nests which you can climb to with a safety harness to enjoy panoramic views. A marina platform lowers from the stern for watersports.
Interior spaces include a three-deck atrium and three-level dining room. Enjoy deliciously prepared cuisine in an open-seating, no-tie dress code setting. You'll find the service to be friendly and gracious. The Captain Nemo Lounge is the site of the spa and health club with underwater glass portholes.
Enjoy the conviviality of fellow shipmates while local performers share authentic local music and arts. Hear great story-telling from the Captain or join in on knot tying and navigation classes that have evolved from the ship's sailing heritage.
