For the first time ever, Travel + Leisure Magazine’s subscribers rated Star Clippers among the world’s “Top 10 Small-Ship Cruise Lines” in 2004. The World’s Best Awards are based on subscriber’s evaluations, rating cruise lines on six categories: cabins, food, service, itineraries/destinations, entertainment/activities, and value. “The most sophisticated and passionate travellers we know - Travel + Leisure readers - identified the cream of the crop around the globe,” according to the cover story in the August issue of Travel + Leisure Magazine. A select group of subscribers rated hotels, cities, islands, airlines, tour operators, and cruise lines to include in the World’s Best Awards listings. Star Clippers cruises received high marks in all six applicable categories for cruise lines.
Reflecting on the rating, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Jack Chatham noted, “Star Clippers is proud to receive such high marks for our cruise line. We are committed to providing an authentic sailing experience while maintaining the high standard of excellence that we set aboard all our ships.”
