Ericka and Jason's
Anniversary Cruise

Our Anniversary cruise was great and relaxing. The onboard staff was nice, most especially our Cabin Attendant who made sure we were taken care of each day. The Suite is the way to go. The suite was perfect to watch the variety of ships leaving and coming in from different locations. Also having Priority Boarding as part of our Suite amenity is an extra plus. We really enjoyed the comedy shows and the various onboard lounges. Thank you Chynell for everything. We will be planning our next trip very soon.

Happy Anniversary Ericka and Jason
Traveling in Japan


I was fortunate enough to fulfill a lifelong dream of traveling to Japan. I created my itinerary as many first-time travelers would do and planned to visit Tokyo, Kyoto and Hakone over the course of 10 days.
Tourists traveling in Japan can purchase a Rail Pass for 7, 14 or 21 days which can be used on the Yamanote line that runs in a circle around Tokyo as well as the Shinkansen (Bullet Train) for long distance travel. This rail pass must be purchased prior to travel. The Japan National Tourist Office can provide a list of companies that sell the pass in your area The starting price for the JR Rail Pass is approximately $250.
We also purchased a Suica card which came in handy when we were traveling around Kyoto. The Suica card is equivalent to a metro card in the USA that you can load money onto. Because the trains systems in Kyoto are privately owned, you cannot use the JR Rail Pass within the city.

This hilarious musical parody set to classic tunes from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s will have you cheering and dancing in the aisles! See what millions of women worldwide have been
laughing about for

1776: A MUSICAL REVOLUTION

This musical is based on the events surrounding the drafting and the signing of the Declaration of Independence…if only our founding fathers can agree to do it!

OUR TRAVEL PARTNERS
Scandinavia is a region in Northern Europe, characterized by common ethnocultural North Germanic heritage and mutually intelligible North Germanic languages. The term Scandinavia in local usage covers the three kingdoms of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, but in English usage, it also sometimes refers to the Scandinavian Peninsula or to the broader region which includes Finland and Iceland. This broader region is usually known locally as the
Nordic countries.
 
T urks & Caicos
A manyara ('peaceful place') is situated in the Turks & Caicos, embraces pristine, white sand beaches and turquoise waters ideal for water sports and diving enthusiasts. Comprised of contemporary Pavilions and suites, plus fully serviced, private Villas ranging from three to six bedrooms, Amanyara provides the utmost privacy and tranquility. The Restaurant, Beach Club and Bar serve Asian and island inspired cuisine with ocean views or pool-side lounging Salas for sunset watching. 


Feel the wind fill the sails. Climb high in the rigging to the first crow's nest. Relax in the bowsprit net. Life aboard a sailing ship appeals to adventurous travelers who are eager to explore unspoiled parts of the world in relative comfort. Leave conventional cruise formalities, such as dressing up for dinner or rigid timetables, to conventional cruise ships. Star Clippers' fleet of three (soon to be four) vessels -- the flagship Royal Clipper, Star Clipper and Star Flyer -- does just that, and with great panache, aboard some of the fastest and largest clipper ships
ever built.
