Star Clippers explore the West Mediterranean

What better way to explore the western Mediterranean than on a ship with sails that heralds back to the past, taking you on a journey similar to that of a historic explorer. The Royal Clipper is a steel-hulled five-masted fully rigged tall ship that spends summer in the Mediterranean. When the weather changes, it heads to the Caribbean for winter. Wherever these sailing ships are, they are cruise ships that take you to places that are the envy of other ships.

Take a look at our Mediterranean and the Black Sea menus of port guides, many of them filmed by us after stepping from a cruise ship. Start here, you will find the rest.

Looking at the locally offered attractions and tours is the first thing a movie location scout will do to research a place.

Always remember a ship tour offers the protection of waiting for the trip to return if it is running late.
