USA Today just posted this: No Solo Supplement on a Clipper Ship!

Solo travelers won’t have to pay an arm and a leg to sail on Star Clippers this November and December.
The small-vessel line, which visits many small ports on sailing ships, is eliminating the extra charge for single travelers on select Caribbean and Central America sailings, and offering price-breaks of up to 66% off brochure rates, along with a one-category cabin upgrade.
The eligible dates include Royal Clipper’s Nov. 23 sailing from Barbados, and Star Clipper’s Dec. 14 and 21 trips from St. Marteen. Travelers can also get the savings on Star Flyer’s Nov. 24 sailing from Balboa, Panama, and its Dec. 15, 22 and 29 trips from Puerto Caldera, Costa Rica.
Fares start at $1,385 per person for a single in a double cabin, including the price savings. The offer is capacity controlled due to limited availability for singles.

Star Clipper's Star Flyer is a 170-passenger, four-masted barquentine that takes its inspiration from the famed clipper ships of the 19th Century.  Clipper ships were built for speed, often achieving 20 knots or more and sailed to the far ends of the earth before the age of steam.
