Star Clippers has added 40 new port calls to its 2010 sailing roster including maiden visits to Costa Rica, the Far East and the Mediterranean.
The line operates three of the world’s largest and tallest sailing vessels — Star Clipper, Star Flyer and Royal Clipper. The line often visits ports untouched by larger cruise ships plus offers passengers the activities, amenities and atmosphere of a private yacht.
Celebrity Solstice has been wowing cruise passengers from bow to stern since her recent debut.
The vessel sports a much-heralded half-acre-sized Lawn Club on the top deck, complete with real grass. Between games of bocce ball and croquet, even putting competitions, couples have also been enjoying picnics — sans shoes of course — as bare feet meets turf for the first time at sea.
