The magnificent Royal Clipper is the world's largest fully-rigged five-mast sailing ship to have been built since the beginning of this century. The 439ft SV Royal Clipper offers the ultimate sea-going experience, combining the grandeur and tradition of cruising under sail with all the creature comforts and the finest modern ship - yet with no formality. The opulence of the interior as would be evident on any luxury cruise ship contradicted the fact that this is a casual sailing experience with no formality. With a ratio of 2 passengers to crew member you will no doubt be treated like royalty!!

Royal Clipper accommodates just 228 guests with a crew of 106 and boasts 54,360 square ft of sail area! Choose from two itineraries - the Windward Islands or the Grenadines in the Caribbean. This type of holiday is suited to independent travellers not looking for a large group of single people. Each evening there is a communal table for single travellers, so you will meet people from all over the world.

There are 3 pools, complimentary waters-ports including windsurfing, water-skiing and snorkelling gear, a PADI dive centre (diving payable on board) and a marina platform allowing for easy access into the water. Other facilities include an elegant dining room (no jacket or tie required at any time), the Piano Bar, Tropical Bar and deck, a library and the Captain Nemo Health Club and Spa with portholes offering spectacular underwater views of marine life.

This is a working sailing ship, with guests encouraged to help. The captains often hold lectures each week on sailing methods, map reading and other sea going skills.
