WHEN: Sunday, September 24, at 11PM PST.
Tune into The Smithsonian Channel this Sunday night for a special show on tall ships!
“Mighty Cruise Ships” is an on-going series on six remarkable cruise ships around the world. Whether their breaking glaciers in polar extremes, or exploring remote passages in the Caribbean, witness how different crews work around the clock for their guests.
Sunday’s episode will feature Star Clippers’ first ship, the Royal Clipper. Star Clippers is a unique sailing line with iconic winged sails. The show will look closely at this elegant tall ship and the ports it visits. With 42 sails, 439 feet in length, and 19,000 square feet of open deck, this is certainly one ship to pin to your bucket list.
A Sneak Peak:
The Royal Clipper is the largest and only five-masted full-rigged sailing ship built since 1902. At 227 passengers, its petite and elegant figure can reach a lot of the small ports that big cruise ships simply can’t handle! The interior is as equally stunning, with hidden balconies, three swimming pools, passenger crow’s nest, Captain Nemo Lounge, three-deck atrium, and three-level dining room.
Sail back into time to the ages of grandeur past with Star Clippers. Explore the tiny port of Hvar Island, a favorite getaway for Byzantines and Venetians. Marvel at the architectural jewel that is Dubrovnik. Coast along Montenegro to the unspoiled medieval city of Kotor, and farther south into the colorful harbor of Mykonos.
