Larry Gelwix Reviews Star Clipper Group Cruise 2023

by Larry Gelwix

Cathy, my wife, and I just returned from our “Greek Isles and Turkey” group adventure cruise with the Star Clipper cruise line sailing on the Star Flyer ship.  

Star Clippers is perfect for mobile, active lifestyle guests of all ages…those with “adventure in their hearts”, regardless of age. 

Yes, this is a “tall ship” with sails but is also a modern ship with propeller motors and all the amenities for smooth sailing, and don’t get me started on how good the food is.

We visited familiar ports of Athens, Kuşadasi for Ephesus, and Mykonos, then continued to quaint out-of-the-way islands including Amorgos and Spetses…think “Mama Mia” type islands, places the large cruise ships cannot go.  

Our group enjoyed spending time onboard the ship in a true sailing experience, wind in our hair as we watched the blue waters float by.  We played on the front net connected to the bow, climbed to the top of the center mass, and even got to steer the ship!  Does it sound like I'm making a brochure statement?  If so it’s because it really does deliver a true sailors experience.  And in the dining room, Star Clippers does it right. 

I love the relaxed atmosphere of a tall ship experience.  I’m looking forward to traveling with them again and I hope you will join me or one of our other groups on our next Star Clippers adventure!
