Swedish owner of tall-ship cruises sails to Baltic

The 170-passenger square-rigger Star Flyer begins Baltic sailings in 2012

Sailing fans around the world will warm to the news that Star Clippers, a line of sailing ships created by the Swede Mikael Krafft, has announced that in summer 2012 the vessel Star Flyer will be relocated to the Baltic Sea, where it will sail a variety of itineraries ranging from three-night samplers to 11-night explorations.
There will be departures out of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, England, Germany and the Netherlands. Guests are promised an in-depth experience of the Baltic Sea region as they visit ports such as Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, Kristiansand, Helsinki, St Petersburg, Hamburg and Amsterdam as well as lesser-known ports like Gdansk, Ventspils, Tallinn and Klaipeda. As many as nine ports in Sweden are on the itineraries. Bookings are now being taken and a discount of 5% to 10% applies to all bookings for the 170-passenger square-rigger before January 31, 2012.
“It has always been my dream to bring one of our square-riggers back to my own personal roots in Sweden and to offer our guests the opportunity to sail in a region that has such a magnificent heritage of tall-ship sailing,” Mikael Krafft said. “As well as the Baltic’s capital cities, we have included several small, very beautiful ports of call in our summer 2012 program, to show our guests the incredible diversity of this stunning region, not to mention some of the finest sailing conditions in the world.”
