Star Clippers expands Caribbean reach with new Grenada homeport

Grenada has been selected as a new home port in the Caribbean for Star Clippers.

The tall ship cruise line will run selected itineraries in winter 2025-26 from the island’s port of St Geroge’s.

The new sailings will be of longer duration and showcase multiple new ports of call.

The extended itineraries have been introduced to meet increased demand from passengers for longer sailings in the Caribbean.

The 10 and 11-night sailings include visits to the new destinations of Charlottesville and Castara Bay, Tobago; Paradise Beach, Carriacou; Charlestown Bay, Canouan; Saint-Pierre, Martinique and Saline Bay, Mayreau. 

Cruise-only rates for the new sailings start at £2,548 per person, including a 10% early booking discount valid until April 30, 2025.

Star Clippers will still operate Costa Rica and Panama Canal itineraries by Star Clipper between November 2025 and January 2026.

A 14-night Panama Canal sailing, departing from Balboa in Panama on January 3, 2026, sails to Montego Bay in Jamaica for the first time, with the new sailings continuing onwards.

President and chief executive Mikael Krafft said: “Although our ships have been visiting Grenada on our many Caribbean itineraries for some years, when we saw the opportunity to homeport one of our clipper ships there, we immediately set to work with the Grenada Tourism Authority to make it a reality.

“The Caribbean is an ideal region for us as the famous Caribbean winds are always there to power our clipper ships, and to be able to offer our guests more opportunities to experience the beauty and culture of Grenada, opening a host of new possibilities.”

 Grenada Tourism Authority chief executive Petra Roach added: “The Pure Grenada and Star Clippers brands are aligned in prioritising authentic experiences for our customers, designed to nourish and feed the soul. 

“Nature treks, beautiful bird-song, delicious cuisine, local traditions and heritage all cascade into an enriching experience second to none. 

“And with convenient direct airlift from the UK, and our starring role as the newest home port for Star Clipper, there’s never been a better time to visit our beautiful tri-island state.”
