Journalist Wallace Immen recently sailed on Star Flyer, and here is one of his articles.

If you’ve ever spent any time on sailboats, you’ve learned there are often compromises to be made for the sake of the sails and the limited space below deck. You bunk in narrow cabins, the day is spent fussing with the sails and the best thing you can make from the tiny galley on board is reservations ashore.

That’s why I find a cruise on Star Clippers’ ships a revelation. They’re true sailing ships but built for the comfort of passengers who like to admire sails with having to hoist them and have plenty of space for chilling out. And the chefs on board turn out remarkably diverse gourmet breakfasts, lunches and dinners.

I’d been on the Star Flyer before but in my week on board off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica and Nicaragua it was even better than I’d experienced in the past.

Here’s a virtual tour above and below decks.
