This was our 4th Star Flyer cruise and for atmosphere on board was probably the best. Windy weather and fairly high seas meant a change of itinerary but that is part of the fun! We started from Monaco, St Tropez the next day. Then a sail across to Corsica, Menorca and finally Majorca. We were kept well informed of the changes and the reasons for them and were very happy with every port we visited. The captain was first class, a lovely friendly man who obviously enjoyed every moment of his job. The cruise director couldn't be faulted, so professional with a lovely warm personality. Food as usual top quality, cabin well equipped and spotlessly clean, all crew and staff greeting us with a big smile every day. Bill the musician on board was expert at getting the passengers singing, dancing - or just listening. If, like me, you have a birthday whilst on board you will be serenaded by the waiters at dinner and have a lovely birthday cake. Unlike many cruises this is provided as a gift from the Star Flyer - they get your date of birth from your passport. A lovely personal touch.
If you love the sea, maybe a little unpredictability due to sailing conditions, a relaxed and informal atmosphere, then this ship is for you! Real sailing, miles of ropes, 36,000 square feet of sails. We can't wait for next year when we will be on the Star Flyer again exploring some new places.
Quite small, as you would expect on a sailing ship. A huge amount of storage space/wardrobes, comfortable bed, well equipped shower room. Efficient air conditioning. Altogether very comfortable.
