Working the UK cruise market, the tall ships of Star Clippers have added new short break cruises in the Baltics for 2013, in addition to Mediterranean sailings during 2012, including a five-night mini-cruise from Athens to Malta this October.
“We find more and more guests who have perhaps already spent their main holiday on board one of our ships are treating themselves to a second mini-break with Star Clippers,” said Star Clippers’ UK general manager Fay McCormack in a Breaking Travel News article recently. “And for first-time cruisers, often people who have seen and admired the ships in port, these shorter voyages are the perfect way to test out life on a magnificent sailing ship before committing to a longer voyage.”
Departing Athens on October 20, the 170-passenger square rigger Star Clipper sails to Monemvasia and Pilos in Greece, followed by a day at sea then a day in historic Syracuse, Sicily, before arriving in Malta on October 25.
