About this trip

Sail through the Treasure Islands with Alt Esc on the magnificent Star Flyer sailing yacht

This 7 day, round-trip St. Maarten, cruise will allow you to see the Caribbean as you never have before! These are not your usual cattle-call, super ship Caribbean ports where you unload for the day with thousands of other passengers. No Way! This is a small (400 ft.), intimate ship (166 passengers) taking you to beaches and islands beyond your wildest dreams! All the while being pampered, spoiled, dining on delicious gourmet food and relaxing on the uncrowded deck of your Sailing Yacht!

So many of these stops are the excursions in themselves - you've never seen on any other itineraries. Historical, literary and natural sites that will WOW you! Sail in and out of natural harbors and   through routes only smaller ships can access. 

Soak in the sun, hike the trails, romp in the waves, explore the tide pools, meander on a beach walk, sit still with a good book or get  lost watching the waves come in... this is the 'Far form the Norm' get-a-way you have been looking for!

Ship Information

THE TWIN SISTER SHIPS

Sisterships Star Clipper and Star Flyer are true Clipper Ships reflecting their proud heritage in every inch of their polished brass and gleaming charm. Star Clipper and Star Flyer are modern small ships in every way, created for adventure-loving passengers looking for the tradition and romance of the legendary era of sailing ships but with the comforts and amenities of the present day. As identical twins, they are both 379 feet long and each carries 166 guests in pampered comfort, over 36,000 square feet of sails. Sixteen sails billowing in the wind. 

NAUTICAL HERITAGE

Each ship offers spacious accommodation and expansive teak decks with ample space for walking and relaxation. In fact, you'll find that these ships offer more outdoor space per passenger than most conventional cruise ships.  The décor of Star Clipper and Star Flyer is reminiscent of the grand age of sailing with a modern touch. Antique prints and paintings of famous sailing ships appeal to the eye, while polished decks and gleaming mahogany rails are richly reminiscent of Star Clippers’ proud nautical heritage. 

MODERN AMENITIES

Both ships feature open-seating dining in an elegantly appointed dining room, delightful indoor and outdoor Tropical and Piano bars, and an Edwardian-style library where a Belle Époque fireplace glows with a warmth that reflects the friendliness and enthusiasm of Star Clippers' hospitable officers and crew. 

CLEAN ENERGY

Star Clipper and Star Flyer use very pure, high quality low Sulphur gas oil for which the company was awarded the International Air Pollution Prevention Certificate. Star Flyer was the first ship in the world to receive this accolade.

Fourteen feisty females head to the Swiss and French Alps for hiking and fondue… From each hotel we had a balcony facing one of Europe’s highest peaks & the other views weren’t to shabby either. Each boutique hotel has a incredibly helpful staff. Whether hiking with the group or on your own you have many options. The fondue, chocolate, wine, even the hotdogs were spectacular. Highly recommend.

WOW! What an incredible trip to the French and Swiss Alps! The hikes, people, food, and especially the scenery was top-notch. Tricia did a wonderful job to make our vacation go smoothly with all her behind-the-scenes planning. The hotels were great, and the train rides were fun, but the friendships that developed made this trip spectacular. I can’t wait for my next trip! Thank you Tricia for a memorable vacation.
By Maureen O for French & Swiss Alps by Scenic Train on 26 Jul, 2022
Had a fabulous time! Wonderful people, delicious food and comfortable accommodations with breathtaking views! I had flight delays that caused me to miss the group transport to Chamonix. Before I even landed in Geneva Tricia sent me all the available transportation options and even met me at the bus stop in Chamonix! Tricia is an excellent planner taking great detail to ensure the trip meets with your expectations! I can’t wait for my next Alt Esc trip! Thank you Tricia for this fantastic experience!

Long awaited trip did not disappoint. Each hotel had a wonderful balcony with stunning mountain views. Tricia worked tirelessly to make sure everyone got what they wanted out of the trip. Can't wait for my next Alt-Esc adventure.

Just got back from Iceland with Tricia. Great trip, Tricia was very organized and made the trip extra special. This was my 3rd trip with Alt-Esc and Tricia. Love the small groups.
