Star Clippers launches no-fly Bordeaux vineyard and rail package for summer 2022
Specialist tall-ship sailing company Star Clippers has launched a Rail, Sip & Sail package alongside their 2022 French Riviera & Corsica sailings on board luxury sailing ship, Star Clipper.
Travelling from London by Eurostar, guests can experience a 2-night pre-cruise stay in Bordeaux – incorporating a wine tour in Médoc vineyards – followed by a night in Cannes prior to boarding the 166-capacity tall-ship for 7 nights. Highlights of the sailing itinerary include St Tropez, Corsica and Portofino.
Speaking of the new package, General Manager Fay McCormack says ‘we are thrilled to offer guests the opportunity to experience a Star Clippers sailing without having to step foot on a plane. This is a really exciting opportunity for sailing and travel enthusiasts’.
Star Clippers – represented in the UK by Fred Olsen Travel – are offering the 10-night package which departs the UK on 13th July 2022 from £3129pp. Alternative dates are available upon request.
Notes to editors:
Star Clippers operates three of the world’s largest and tallest fully-crewed sailing vessels. The ships can drop anchor in smaller harbours and visit ports often untouched by larger cruise ships and providing guests with the amenities and atmosphere of a private yacht.
High standards of service are provided by an attentive crew and all three ships have expansive teak decks, swimming pools, informal dining, a convivial Tropical Bar on deck and a comfortable piano bar and are large enough to offer first class accommodation and dining.
The two smaller ships, Star Flyer and Star Clipper take 166 guests each, with a crew of 74, while Royal Clipper carries 227 with a crew of 106.
