Win a spectacular holiday!

Adventure Romance and Grace.
Anyone who looks at a great sailing ship can’t help but think of words like this. The lure of sail is something that pulls at us

from the distant past, reminding us of what travel really used to be about. Not the destination, but the journey to get there.
Star Clipper Holidays part of the Ponders Cruise and Travel family  is passionate about the journey and we are proud and

pleased to bring a range of exclusive trips to the already phenomenal experience of sailing on one of the Star Clipper fleet of tall masted ships.
Here is your chance to win a holiday on- board the Star Clipper part of the fleet and experience what life on-board is truly

like and to have all your expectations met and exceeded.

We promise you it will be something that you will never forget.

Life aboard is blissfully relaxed, much like traveling on a private yacht. You’ll never feel confined on Star Clipper. The ship offer spacious accommodations and expansive teak decks with ample space and not one, but two swimming pools. In fact, you’ll find that Star Clipper 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 and paintings of famous sailing ships please the eye, while teak and gleaming mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers’ proud nautical heritage. On -board features such as 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 warmth that reflects the friendliness and enthusiasm of Star Clippers’ hospitable officers and crew.

Your journey will take you where white-washed churches point tilted Greek crosses heavenward in skies of brilliant blue, while sun worshippers bask on the beaches. Twisting cobblestone alleyways lead to tavernas where octopus salad and ouzo are in order.  Visit Ancient Minoan palaces and medieval fortresses. In hidden coves, finds harbours where pristine sands and warm crystal waters beckon you to explore underwater grottos while beachgoers laze away under sun –filled skies.

Stepping on board Star Clipper is like taking a trip into the past, yet without ever leaving behind the luxury of the modern world.
This 360 foot long ship can take 170 discerning travellers on a modern day adventure complete with all the luxury expected of a first class company. Their smaller size and unique handling also allow them to reach smaller or more rarely visited anchorages, giving the grand sense of exploration often missing from modern travel.

So enter today for the experience of a lifetime.
