Tall ship sailing cruise specialist Star Clippers has revealed its sailing itineraries for 2019/20 in a new Preview brochure. Borneo features as a new destination for the first time, as does a new Greek island itinerary on board Star Flyer which takes in the film locations of Mamma Mia. There are also additional Panama Canal sailings, with new ports of call, in addition to existing destinations and sailing itineraries in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and South East Asia.
Borneo is the world’s third largest island and an exciting new addition to Star Clippers’ South East Asia itineraries in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. Known for its beaches and ancient, biodiverse rainforest, it is home to many cultures, cuisines and exotic wildlife, including orangutan, clouded leopards and the Irrawaddy dolphin. Star Clipper makes the most of the new sailing itinerary, embarking in Borneo and cruising the Malay Archipelago to Singapore. The new 11 night sailings from Kota Kinabalu, Borneo, to Singapore on board Star Clipper depart during May and October 2019 and cost from £1963pp, including all meals on board and port charges and a 20% early booking discount for bookings made by 31st January 2019.
