Star Clippers return to Asia
Star Clippers have announced that they will be operating a winter season in Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore from December 2016 to April 2017. This marks the line's return to the region for the first time since March 2010.
The 170-passenger Star Clipper will end its summer season in the Mediterranean and sail via the Suez Canal and Sri Lanka to its winter home port of Phuket, where it will operate seven-night round trip cruises on two different routes from 2nd December 2016, as well as some voyages to Singapore.
There are two itineraries, Northbound and Southbound, as well as seven departures that either begin or end in Singapore. Star Clipper will explore the many islands scattered off the coast of Phuket, accessible only by water, with some of the most beautiful beaches and dazzling marine life in the world. There will be numerous opportunities for sunbathing, snorkelling, other watersports and exploring on foot and taking photo safaris in the ship's Zodiacs.
