Best of Star Clippers Cruise Chat Recap

Star Clippers sails into the sunset leaving behind a wake of good times

The biggest surprise for me was realizing that I really can’t wait to go sailing on Star Clippers‘ Royal Clipper. When I was selling cruises I did not know enough about Star Clippers. Now that I write about cruising, I am glad to have the chance to learn about this adventure cruise company.

Here is the photo of the day and the captions that the cruise crew tweeted.  Thanks everyone for stopping by #CruiseChat.
