Star Clippers refreshes cabins on two ships and dining room on one

Star Clipper cabin - new soft goods, flat-screen television, LED bedside reading lamps
Star Flyer and Star Clipper, two of three tall ships in the Star Clippers fleet, underwent refurbishments that revitalized the décor and furnishings in all cabins, while Star Clipper also got fresh paint and varnish in public areas and dining room enhancements.

All bed linens were replaced, and new bed covers and throw pillows introduced deep gold and navy tones. The woodwork was brightly polished throughout cabins and en-suite bathrooms.

New LED bedside reading lights designed to not disturb a sleeping cabin mate were installed, and Category One cabins also received new side lamps. New flat-screen televisions were added to all cabins except Category Six.

In addition to the cabin décor enhancements, during the trans-Atlantic crossing at the start of the Mediterranean season Star Clipper had 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 to Italy, Spain, France, Montenegro, Croatia, the Balearics, the Aegean and North Africa.
