Setting sail from Valletta

Malta's tiny capital, established by the Knights of St John, packs in an awful lot of history considering its diminutive size. The atmospheric old streets, bathed in Mediterranean sunshine, are full of attractive honey-golden buildings, along with an impressive selection of bars and restaurants.

Arriving in Málaga

Málaga has at times had its reputation dragged down by association with the overdevelopment and high rise horrors of the Costa del Sol, which is a great shame, as there is plenty to satisfy the discerning traveller. The labyrinthine historic centre is right next to the cruise port, and has been given something of a makeover in recent years. Nowadays there are plenty of chic restaurants and bars where you can ease into the rhythms of life in southern Spain, before exploring sights including the intriguing, unfinished Gothic cathedral, and a museum devoted to Málaga's most famous son, Pablo Picasso.

Our tip

Málaga closes for siesta so plan your visit to ensure you have scheduled a long relaxing lunch. Plan for an extensive tapas tasting, or great seafood a little way down the coast at El Palo.

The Ship

Star Clipper at sea
Cabin on board Star Clipper
Tropical bar, Star Clipper

True clipper ships, these beautiful 4 mast vessels reflect a proud seafaring heritage in their elegant sails, warm woods and polished brass.

What we love

Star Clipper and her sister ship Star Flyer certainly stand out from the crowd. In full sail she is an awe-inspiring sight, reminiscent on a bygone age, yet she combines this tradition with the comfort of a modern cruise line, ideal for those who wish to experience a tall ship cruise. Climb the mast or relax by the small pool, you can be as involved as you wish on this easy-going and friendly ship.
