Sail Date: Apr 2019
Cabin:

Choose the cruise to get some sun after the European winter and because of a recommendation from cruising friends.

Star Clipper herself is becoming tired and in some areas is looking her age but you very quickly forget this as the experience gets better and better by the day. We boarded in Phuket and cruised the Thai islands and Penang. The crew generally were tireless in making things work. The food on board was good to excellent given the limited opportunities that they have to stock the galleys. Drinks prices were realistic particularly as a reasonable bottle of house wine was only €16.

The excursions were good particularly the Orang Utan island near Penang (but was there really nothing other than a charcoal factory to show us in Malaysia?). The trip to James Bond island is perhaps mistitled as the better parts were the local islands (similar to Ha Lang bay in Vietnam), the floating village and the mangrove areas.

Cabin Review

Cabin 2

Necessarily small but the bathroom was becoming tired. Comfortable for the small amount of time you want to spend there
