Ship Highlights

Dining
Royal Clipper's inspired chefs make dining aboard a delightful culinary adventure with an international menu of foods from the far corners of the earth. On Royal Clipper, you are free to dine when and with whomever you wish, including Royal Clipper's officers, who join guests in the dining room most nights. If the day includes a stop at one of the paradisaical islands Royal Clipper frequents, you might also be treated to a succulent outdoor barbecue on shore.

Activities
A windsurfer traces a zig-zag wake over dancing wave tops. A snorkeler floats over a garden blooming with purple and rose coral. A diver plays tag with a school of clown fish darting in and out of an underwater wreck. On Royal Clipper, the day proceeds at your own pace, whatever that may be. If it's a beach day, you can swim, windsurf, water-ski, sail a Sunfish, ride a banana boat or explore in a Zodiac. Royal Clipper's sports staff will be happy to offer assistance, should you require it.

Watersoprts Marina
On Royal Clipper, a unique marina platform lowers to sea level, giving you instant access to water sports activities. Royal Clipper will take you to remote reefs, underwater wrecks and blue lagoons where marine species are in abundance. You can be confident that your environmentally friendly sailing ship will leave the world's pristine places as clean and unpolluted as when it arrived. Whether you elect to glide among the emerald-clad jewels of the Caribbean, enjoy the incomparable adventure of an epic ocean crossing, be beguiled by the ancient, sun-warmed ports of the Mediterranean or be intrigued by the mysteries of the Far East and Central America, each and every voyage aboard Royal Clipper will be a little bit different from the one before and/or after.
