Santiago, Chile

Athens, Greece
In the shadow of the Acropolis in the Agora, you can almost hear the voices of Plato, Socrates and Aristotle ...

 

Santiago, Chile

Mykonos, Greece
One of the most cosmopolitan of all the Greek Islands, Mykonos is a contrast of rocky hills and beautiful beaches. .

 

 

 

Santiago, Chile

Santorini, Greece
The island of Santorini is perhaps the most breathtaking of all the Greek Islands, formed by an ancient volcanoe.

 

 

 

Katakolon, Greece (Optional Tour Olympia)
Enjoy the beach at little Katákolon, go inland to Olympia, walk through the sacred Temples of Zeus and Hera, and visit the Hippodrome.

Santiago, Chile

Corfu, Greece
The lushest (and some say the loveliest) of all the Greek Islands, Corfu lies just a stone's throw from the Albanian coast.

 

Santiago, Chile

Kotor, Montenegro
Boka harbours one of the prettiest, unspoiled towns you'll ever see, the medieval city of Kotor. Founded by the Romans, fortified during the Byzantine era, then ruled by Venice for much of its history, Kotor has been naturally preserved by its isolation.

Santiago, Chile

Dubrovnik, Croatia
Crowned by the Minceta Tower, the 10th century city walls are the proud symbol of Dubrovnik's colourful history.

 

Santiago, Chile

Hvar, Croatia
A favorite getaway ever since the time of the Romans, the Byzantines, the Venetians and even Austro-Hungarian royalty.

Mali Losinj, Croatia
Cikat Bay, with its 30 kilometres long beach offers every watersport imaginable, or visit the fortified town of Veli Losinj.

Santiago, Chile

The perfect finale in Venice, Italy.

The city of Romance beckons. See San Marco, the Bridge of Sighs, Doge's Palace, La Fenice Opera House, the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore, the Grand Canal, and more.


Find out why more and more travelers are opting to 'Leave the Herd Behind' while discovering the many authentic experiences and heart of the Eastern Mediterranean on a Story Land & Sea® Cruise aboard the Star Clipper.


Ship: The Star Clipper

A true clipper ship reflecting its proud heritage in every inch of its 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. The Star Clipper is a modern cruise ship in every way, created for luxury-loving passengers who also love the traditions and romance of the legendary era of sailing ships. The Star Clipper is over 360 feet long and carries just 170 guests in pampered comfort, along with a staff of 70.

Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like traveling on a private yacht. You'll never feel confined on Star Clipper, as 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 this ships offers more outdoor space per passenger than most conventional cruise ships.

The décor of the Star Clipper is reminiscent of the grand age of sail. Antique prints and paintings of famous sailing ships please the eye, while teak and gleaming mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers' proud nautical heritage.

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