On Dec. 23, 2013, Star Clipper and Royal Clipper will meet in the Caribbean and sail side by side to Cabrits, Dominica. We often share photos of the two sailing together, so this will provide another exciting photo opportunity.
Once the two part ways Star Clipper will continue on to spend Christmas Eve at Terre-de-Haut, the largest and most populous island in the idyllic Iles des Saintes archipelago. When describing Iles des Saintes one guest said,
“Imagine if Disney were asked to create a French/Caribbean island with a fort at the top — that’s what Iles de Saintes is like!”
Ships provide the main entry to Iles des Saintes, which creates a feeling of exclusivity and true adventure! You won’t find a large commercial port here, but rather quaint restaurants and shops, and the preserved beauty of the islands. Read the rest of this entry »
