There are two Westbound transatlantic crossings to choose from, departing in November. Whichever you choose, a traditional voyage under sail from one continent to another is sure to be a memorable journey.

The magnificent 5-masted Royal Clipper leaves Lisbon for a 16-night journey to Bridgetown, taking in the lively city of Casablanca and fishing port of Safi in Morocco and the popular island of Tenerife, dominated by Mount Tiede.

Join Star Flyer on an 18-night voyage sailing from Las Palmas across the Atlantic to Barbados, calling at the volcanic Cape Verde islands off the coast of Africa.

The facilities and service on board the Star Clippers fleet ensures you an enjoyable Atlantic voyage. The furnishings are elegant and the easy-going atmosphere is helped by open-seat dining and no requirements for formal dress.
