Enjoy The Ultimate Sailing Experience: A Transatlantic Crossing With Star Clippers – Las Palmas To St Maarten £1,391 pp (November 2020) and St Maarten to Malaga £1,437 pp (March 2021)

 

As featured in an article in last weekend’s Telegraph Cruise Supplement by Jeannine Williamson, Star Clippers provides tall ship sailings that glide across the waves allowing guests to immerse in activities, amenities and an atmosphere similar to those of a private yacht.
.

Guests are invited to relax and enjoy sailing across the Atlantic Ocean. The Star Clippers eam will lead lectures, and hands-on sessions so guests can learn more about sailing – from the art of knot tying, navigation or climbing up the mast to the crow’s nest for a birds-eye view.

Later in the day enjoy a cocktail in the Tropical Bar, revel in a book while curled up in the corner of the library, savour a rejuvenating spa treatment or simply socialise on the top deck with the wind in your hair.

Call The Cruise People Ltd in London on 020 7723 2450 or email PassageEnquiry@outlook.com for more details.

Salerno To Baltimore, Transatlantic In Grimaldi Lines’ Twelve-Passenger Grande Congo

The Grande Congo and her sister ships can carry up to 12 passengers each

As well as Fiats, Italian-built Jeep Renegades and containers, each ship in Grimaldi Lines’ Salerno-to-Baltimore service is fitted to carry up to twelve passengers. Rachel Slade crossed the Atlantic with her two stepsons on the Grande Congo in July 2017. Here is what she wrote to us on her return to the US:

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you and Miri for a memorable journey and tremendous service.

We took a Grimaldi ro/con ship from Civitavecchia [vessels now sail from Salerno] to Baltimore in July 2017. I cannot overstate how polite the master (Captain Francesco Rago) and crew were, and how welcome we felt during our 12-day cruise across the Atlantic. The food was delicious, and the espresso on the bridge every evening was unforgettable. The master taught my stepsons how to use a sextant and identify steering stars, and we learned a lot about Italian food and politics. We look forward to traveling with Grimaldi again someday.

But getting underway was a journey unto itself, and the whole ordeal gave me a chance to see how hard The Cruise People work to make sure their customers have a positive experience in the very unpredictable world of commercial shipping.

I first booked a ship through The Cruise People from Lisbon to Jacksonville for June. Within weeks, that entire shipping route was cancelled, forcing Miri to scramble to find me room for three passengers on another ship crossing the Atlantic during the high season. She finally found a Grimaldi ship, scheduled to leave Italy on June 21. We booked our flights from Boston, and waited in anticipation.

One day before we left the States, Kevin contacted us to let us know the ship would be delayed a couple of days, with a June 24 departure. Not a problem–we booked an AirBnB in Civitavecchia.

Then things got worse. When we got to Rome, I contacted the port agent who informed us that the ship had been rerouted to Turkey and wouldn’t leave Italy until July 1.

Kevin spent considerable time working with the shipping company to get the details, and helped us get a deduction on the cost of our passage, which was truly appreciated, considering the fact that we had to spend 10 extra days in Italy. It was a heroic effort, and made me feel that even in this era, some companies truly care about their clients’ experience.

When we finally got on the ship and headed out to sea, we were thrilled and relieved. Suffice it to say that we had terrific weather–sunny, warm–including a few days when the temperamental Atlantic Ocean was as flat as a sheet of glass. We truly appreciated the chance to unplug from the world for a week!

Thank you again for everything.
