Star Clipper Tall Sailing Ship is sailing to Tahiti!

June 4, 2008 · Print This Article

star clipper shipWhere romance was born, beauty amazes the senses and adventure beckons on every horizon. Tahiti and French Polynesia, the legendary siren of the South Pacific. The Islands of Tahiti are now the new home of Star Flyer - and the consummate mega-yacht sailing experience.

What a happy combination! Sailing has a very long tradition in French Polynesia, beginning with the original Polynesians, who navigated as far as New Zealand and Hawaii, perhaps even to South America, in quest of new lands to colonize.

In keeping with this revered sailing heritage, Star Flyer will be the first modern-day tall-ship to make its home year-round in French Polynesia, voyaging to the legendary Society Islands and the remote Tuomotus, the home of Polynesian cultural traditions. Star Flyer will offer intensely rewarding personal explorations of islands bearing magical names like Moorea, Bora Bora, Huahine and Rangiroa. Even more noteworthy, as she glides through these pristine archipelagos of unsurpassing loveliness, she will leave no sign of her passaging.

    Ia orana! My husband and I just completed this sailing - the Star Flyer in June 2008. This 4 masted sailing ship was a dream to be on. Cabins are small but amazingly well appointed and roomy - many hidey holes in the bathroom for all your goodies, many shelves in the closet - a place for everything & everything in its place as they say. =) Only port holes and no balconies, but neither were needed or missed. There are (2) pools plus that great big ocean of a pool to enjoy. The staff was international (from over 22 countries) and the guests were 50% USA and 50% international (Germany, France, Japan, Italy, Serbia, Switzerland, etc.) Was a very nice range of ages as well - from honeymooners to active boomers. Loved the casual atmosphere & the casual dining (tropical chic was all that was needed, though pants for men for dinner.) Food was very good (not excellent, but better than fair/good.) We skipped lunch more than once - just how much food does a body need? LOL Wines and spirits were surprisingly well priced (all in Euros.) Shore excursions were very popular and again, well priced. With a nightly choice of “disco on the deck” , watching the stars twinkle above you as the ship slowly makes it ways between islands (loved that there was no ‘roar” of engines) of snuggled up in your cabin watching the complimentary DVD’s - I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone that enjoys a more intimate (read: no casinos, no Broadway shows etc) casual getaway.

    Only on such kind of ship you will feel the real sea-life. So if you plan to book cruise, give some more money and order room in Tall-ship
