Rediscover a Maritime Tradition

Imagine this: gentle waves lapping rhythmically against a wind-driven hull, the scent of the salty sea spray on the refreshing breeze, taut sails towering majestically overhead, a pod of young dolphins dancing in the bow wave of the azure waters – all against a backdrop of breathtaking coastline.

Nothing beats the romance of being at sea on a tall ship, so join us aboard the magnificent SPV Royal Clipper, where ultimate relaxation and true pampering await you. Within this evocative tall ship awaits a luxurious world for those who seek a genuine sailing experience and wish to rediscover a maritime tradition without sacrificing creature comforts.

Just as her predecessors did a century and a half ago, the Royal Clipper glides effortlessly through the waves; but nowadays, the sails are unfurled using the latest technology, the hammocks have been replaced by sumptuous cabins and ‘hard tack’ by exquisite cuisine.

The outstanding ship is proof that craftsmanship is very much alive: rich hardwoods, polished brass, wrought-iron fittings and marble are beautifully complemented by deep-pile carpets and sophisticated furnishings.

Far from being a typical cruise ship, the Royal Clipper is of a sufficiently intimate size, so we sail close to the shore and visit smaller, fascinating ports. Not only do we enjoy more stunning views, but we also have a wonderful seafaring

Deck Plan

The ship is constructed to the highest standards and is comprised of three accommodation decks: Commodore Deck, Clipper Deck and Main Deck. The ship is topped by an extensive sun deck.

In an imaginative design, a three-deck atrium allows natural light to penetrate into the elegantly furnished dining-room which tastefully reflects the first-class nautical heritage of yesteryear.

Leading into the atrium is the piano bar, again tastefully furnished with beautiful carpets and comfortable armchairs, wonderful to relax in after dinner with a digestif.

If you feel like pampering yourself you can visit the spa for a variety of treatments, or to keep in trim there is a gym too, featuring rather unusual under-sea portholes.

On the Sun Deck you can relax, catch up on some reading, take a dip in one of the three small pools or for the more adventurous, why not lie in the netting around the bowsprit and be mesmerised by the bow slicing though the waves below you.
