An amazing adventure.


Our cruise on Panorama II, December 2019, from Penang to Phuket was fantastic. What an amazing adventure and opportunity to make new friends. The low number of passengers meant the cruise was really personal, both ...

My third Fred Olsen cruise - another excellent itinerary (Indonesia)

I choose Fred Olsen because of the itineraries and because I don't like huge ships (I actually prefer those with around 300 passengers, so Fred Olsen ships are still bigger than I like, ideally). Boudicca is ...

A Good Cruise

The staff on this ship were excellent, great service and friendly / food was very good. The ship is fascinating to sail on especially when they raise the sails, truly a sight to watch. As it is not a large cruise ...

A Wonderful Cruise

Choose the cruise to get some sun after the European winter and because of a recommendation from cruising friends. Star Clipper herself is becoming tired and in some areas is looking her age but you very quickly ...

Less than magical

A trip on Star Clippers was on our bucket list but this just did not meet our expectations. Sailing on a clipper ship requires compromises. This is not a 90,000 ton behemoth and you have to accept the space ...

Itinerary changes made this much less an expedition but SS treated us fairly

We were expecting an amazing expedition cruise to many new locations for us and Silversea in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Unfortunately the local governments would not allow us to use the Zodiaks in many places ...

Bad from the start

We chose this expedition cruise because of the unique itinerary and promise of an active experience. We have gone on 15 cruises on various lines. Silversea let us down repeatedly. ITINERARY: Upon arrival, our ...

First cruise on tall ship

I've been on many (30+) cruises over the years including small ships like Wind Star and even chartered catamarans. But never on a tall ship or a cruise in Asia. My main concerns were boredom, ship to shore ...

Having travelled with Silversea before, I decided to try an expedition ship - I was a little daunted before I travelled but after talking in depth with my cruise advisor, I was a little more relaxed. I was so ...

It is all about the Ship

Do not go on Star Clippers if you need pampering or entertaining. It is all about the ship, which is beautiful in itself but when under sail transcends the ordinary. Siting on deck at night, under the stars with a ...

Expections were higher for Silversea

We always choose our ship by ports. This cruise went to the Philippines, Borneo and Brunei were we had not been. Windstar went at a similar route for more ports for less money, but we prefer a veranda. I was ...

Not for everyone

Some will love this unique sailing ship experience. For us it was interesting and had its good moments with some great scenery in the Andaman Sea, but was spoiled by a very noisy cabin (due to the ship's generator ...
