12-night stay and tall ship sailing adventure from Bali around the Gili Islands. Holiday starts on 17 June 2019.

Introducing Star Clipper:
ROMANCE THE WIND ABOARD A TALL SHIP.

They are the stars of the sea. Star Clipper is as fleet as the wind and as graceful as a swan.

These are true clipper ships reflecting their proud heritage in every inch of their polished brass and gleaming brightwork. Step aboard this unique vessel and discover a new age of sail, where the traditions of the past are happily married to the comforts and amenities of the present day. Star Clipper is a modern cruise ships in every way, created for luxury-loving passengers who also love the traditions and romance of the legendary era of sailing ships. Star Clipper is 360 feet long and carries just 170 guests in pampered comfort.

Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like traveling on a private yacht. You’ll never feel confined on Star Clipper. The ship offers spacious accommodations and expansive teak decks with ample space and not one, but two swimming pools. In fact, you’ll find that the ship offers more outdoor space per passenger than most conventional cruise ships.

The décor of Star Clipper is reminiscent of the grand age of sail. Antique prints, teak decking and gleaming mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers’ proud nautical heritage.

All Star Clippers ships feature open-seating dining in an elegantly appointed dining room, a convivial indoor-outdoor Tropical Bar and Piano Bar, and an Edwardian style library where a Belle Époque fireplace glows with warmth that reflects the friendliness and enthusiasm of Star Clippers’ hospitable officers and crew.

Throughout the cruise, the captain gives at least one informal talk on maritime themes, and, at least once a day, the cruise director speaks about the upcoming ports and shipboard events. Within reason, passengers can lend a hand with deck duties, observe the mechanics of navigation, climb the masts (at designated times and with a safety harness), and have a token try at handling the wheel when circumstances and calm weather permit. The ship maintains an open-bridge policy, allowing passengers to wander up to the humble-looking navigation centre at any hour of the day or night.

Other activities may include a brief engine-room tour, morning exercise classes on deck, excursions via tender to photograph the ship under sail, in-cabin movies and hanging out by one of the pools. Of course, sunbathing is a sport in itself. Best spot for it? In the bowsprit netting, hanging out over the water. It's sunny, it's a thrill in itself, and it's the perfect place from which to spot dolphins in the sea just feet below you, dancing in the bow's wake.

Cruise Itinerary:

Trips to temples, palaces markets and a bat cave are some of the many things also on offer.

Sunday 23 June 2019   Gili Kondo - Lombok, Indonesia
Gili Kondo is an uninhabited island which is part of thirty three small islands in Eastern Lombok. The word Gili simply means “small island” in the Sasak language. Enjoy snorkelling directly from the beach, the waters are very calm and there are plenty of multi-coloured fish. Afterwards you can relax on the white sand and soak up some rays, or take a long beachcombing stroll.

Monday 24 June 2019   At sea
Each Star Clippers ship offers a traditional and elegant way to see the world. Feel the wind fill the sails and gently carry you from one gorgeous destination to the next. During your time on board, you can choose to relax on a sun lounger or cool off in one of the pools on the top deck, while more adventurous passengers may enjoy the opportunity to climb the rigging or even have a go at steering the ship. Alternatively, you can wander the interior areas of the ship and discover relaxing lounges, a revitalising spa (Royal Clipper only) and a peaceful library.

Tuesday 25 June 2019   Komodo National Park - Komodo, Indonesia
The park was founded in 1980 with the aim of preserving the unique Komodo dragon and its habitat. Komodo Island is the bleak and desolate domain of this highly aggressive reptile that looks like a relic from the age when dinosaurs walked the earth. The species is notoriously fierce and the “dragon” moniker is well deserved. The Komodo dragon which belongs to a once widespread order of monitor lizards now survives only on a handful of islands. This giant lizard can grow up to 3 metres in length and weigh as much as 150 kg. Like other monitor lizards they have tapered heads, visible ear-openings, a long slender neck, round pupils and eyelids and above all very powerful jaws.

Tuesday 25 June 2019   Pink Beach - Komodo, Indonesia
Pink beach, or Pantai Merah, is one of only seven such beaches on the whole planet. The amazing colour comes from microscopic animals called Foraminifera which leave a red pigment on the coral reefs and the name Pantai Merah literally means red beach. Pink beach is bounded by turquoise blue sea and offers spectacular views of the surrounding area, including small islands, hills and mountains. It is said to be the best spot for snorkelling in Komodo National Park.

Wednesday 26 June 2019   Satonda Island, Indonesia
Satonda is a tiny uninhabited island formed millions of years ago by an eruption which rocked the sea bed at 1000m and projected volcanic rock upwards to a height of 289 metres above sea level. The local people believe that the island is sacred and you can see offerings in the form of bits of coral hanging in the trees; these have been put there by pilgrims who visit the island in the hope of having their wishes granted. Satonda is surrounded by beautiful coral reefs with a large variety of tropical fish; to protect this unique underwater paradise the island was declared to be a Marine Nature Park in 1999.

Thursday 27 June 2019   Gili Meno & Gili Trawangan - Lombok, Indonesia
Gili Trawangan, universally known as “Gili T”, is the most cosmopolitan and popular island.

These activities are offered by local companies directly at the disembarkation pontoon.

Friday 28 June 2019   Gili Nanggu - Lombok, Indonesia
Gili Nanggu is on the southwest coast of Lombok and is still relatively undeveloped, offering a pristine natural region for travelers to explore. The only noise that breaks the serene silence is the singing and twittering of the birds. The beaches are powder white sand and the water crystal clear and teaming with thousands of tropical fish making it an ideal destination for snorkeling If you're lucky you may even spot some sea turtles.

Saturday 29 June 2019   Benoa - Bali, Indonesia
