Tall-ship sailing brand Star Clippers adds Wi-Fi to fleet

Tall ship sailing specialists Star Clippers has announced they now offer high speed Starlink WiFi on all three of their ships, offering guests and crew a faster, more reliable internet connection while onboard.

Using SpaceX’s Low Earth Orbit satellite technology, the ships will now have connectivity in remote parts of the world that previously had inconsistent or compromised service.

“The rollout of Starlink onboard our ships is a pivotal move in recognizing the importance of dependable connectivity while at sea,” said Mikael Krafft, owner and president of Star Clippers. “With our authentic sailing ships often calling on remote ports and small islands, ensuring our guests and crew can remain in touch with loved ones back home—as well as enhancing our operational systems on board—is a top priority.”

Now available to purchase

Starlink will be available for purchase onboard Royal Clipper, Star Flyer and Star Clipper. Packages are available based on usage, with a 1GB plan valid for seven days going for €18, 3GB valid for 14 days for €50 and 5GB valid for 21 days for €80.

For more than 30 years, Star Clippers has been introducing travellers to the thrill of modern tall ship sailing to remote ports in the Caribbean, Mediterranean, and Central America. The company operates three of the world’s largest and tallest sailing vessels: Star Clipper and Star Flyer are traditional clipper ships with modern amenities carrying 166 guests, while the 227-guest Royal Clipper holds the Guinness World Record for being the largest and only five-masted, full-rigged sailing ship in service today.

All three ships have expansive teak decks, swimming pools, informal dining, convivial tropical bars on deck and piano lounges.
