Baltic Sea Cruises 2012: Star Clippers premiere
Star Clippers cruise company, known in the market for its cruises on sailing vessels, intends to present its new routes on the Baltic Sea for the coming summer season. Baltic cruises will be the first in the history of the Star Flyer sailing ship.
Star Clippers will offer 3-5 day cruises on its new tourist destination. It should be noted that in addition to the standard proposals the company will have several special programs. Among them are naval parades in the German ports of Hamburg, Rostock and Kiel. It is worth noting that the popularity of these directions was so great that all places for these cruises were sold in January 2012.
There are many capitals and such "pearls" as Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo and Southampton, which the Star Flyer is planning to visit in the upcoming summer season.
Currently Star Flyer serves winter cruises in the Central American region. Cruise tours on the Star Flyer are offered today near the coast of Costa Rica.
It should be noted that the coming summer 2012 the whole fleet of Star Clippers, which is presented by three ships, will serve cruises in the Eastern Hemisphere. While the Star Flyer will travel to the Baltic Sea ports, two other sailing ships - Royal Clipper and Star Clipper - will offer popular routes in the Mediterranean region.
Star Clippers is an operator, which offers sailing cruises in the respectable classic atmosphere of sea travel. Due to the small size Star Clippers sailboats may visit the ports, which large liners cannot enter. Among the company's latest developments are several prestigious World Travel Awards in the tourism industry. Star Clippers was named the "Best luxury sailing cruise company", the "Best environmental cruise line" and the "Best cruise company in a small vessel class".
