Experience the classic Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train journey. Depart London mid-morning for your luxurious overnight journey to Venice, where you stay before stepping aboard the Star Flyer for a luxurious exploration of the stunning Dalmatian coastline, taking in Venice, Dubrovnik, Montenegro and Croatia.
Leave the modern age behind, as you enter an iconic and elegant world of travel. A world where impeccably dressed porters and crisp linens evoke a bygone era of romance and intrigue. Enjoy the start of your adventure as you sip a Bellini while rolling through glorious scenery in the gleaming carriages.
After lunch, sit back and relax while sipping on elegant drinks and gazing out on beautiful European countryside before retiring to partake in afternoon tea in your cabin. In the evening, a four-course evening meal will be served, as created by some truly innovative epicures, followed by a night of relaxation either in the bar, or back in your cabin. Each cabin has an original washbasin cabinet with hot and cold water, and at night-time becomes a comfortable bedroom, complete with soft towels and crisp linen. Cabins convert in moments from daytime seating to a luxurious bedroom, all performed by cabin stewards whilst you enjoy your gourmet dinner in the restaurant car.
If you’re taken by the spectacle and grandeur associated with the art of traditional sailing, but want to spend your holiday in the comfortable and luxurious confines offered by a conventional cruise, then a trip aboard Star Flyer is exactly what you are looking for. Her undeniably classical characteristics are a nod of appreciation to her predecessors, whilst her advanced navigation systems and refined finish prove she is by no means outdated.
With ample outdoor space for a full capacity of 170 guests and sizeable cabins, complete with all the mod-cons, you will never feel cramped aboard this excellent ship. In fact, because there are no rigid schedules or clothing and dining restrictions, you will feel as liberated as ever as the salty sea breeze rushes through your hair.
The general atmosphere is akin to that found on a private yacht, as everyone comes together to share their excitement for the adventures that await. Solitude can still be found however, either in the comfort of your personal stateroom or whilst immersed in a book from the onboard library.
The resplendent is appropriately finished with paintings of famous ships which again reflect the vintage nautical nature of this wonderful vessel. It’s easy to see the influence of Star Clippers™ heritage and the teak decks along with the warm mahogany rails complement everything perfectly.
