Star Clippers refreshed Star Flyer and Star Clipper, two of three tall ships in the fleet, undergoing refurbishments that revitalized the décor and furnishings in all cabins.
All bed linens have been replaced, and new bed covers and throw pillows introduce deep tones of gold and navy to the cabins. The yachtlike woodwork has been polished throughout cabins and en-suite bathrooms. New LED bedside reading lights designed to not disturb a sleeping cabin mate have been installed, and Category One cabins also received new side lamps. New flat-screen TVs are now in all cabins except Category Six.
In addition to the cabin décor enhancements, during the transatlantic crossing at the start of the Mediterranean season Star Clipper went through a complete facelift, with all cabins and public areas receiving a fresh coat of paint and varnish, as well as new upholstery in the dining room.
The revitalizations are part of Star Clippers' rolling refurbishment program -- Royal Clipper received the same treatment and more in 2013, with new carpeting throughout and all bathrooms rejuvenated, while the public areas on Star Flyer were refurbished in 2012.
The shipboard décor has a nautical theme throughout, with polished wood, brass, wall-mounted prints and original paintings of famous classic sailing vessels.
Royal Clipper, Star Clipper and Star Flyer are sailing the Mediterranean this summer, cruising the coasts of Italy, Spain, France, Montenegro and Croatia; the Balearics; the Aegean; and North Africa.
