Sixteen sails billowing in the wind let all who come aboard know that they are about to embark on an adventure that is far from ordinary.
REDLANDS, CA., UNITED STATES, June 6, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — As the saying goes, “been there, done that”, today’s sophisticated travelers are seeking unique experiences, memorable trips of a lifetime and not typical cookie-cutter vacations. Marlys and George Aballi, owners of Connection to Cruise, get these types of requests often and as seasoned travel professionals, they work hard to stay fresh and up to date and work closely with travel industry suppliers to remain constantly in-the-know.
Topping their list of incredible experiences is Star Clippers, authentic sailing on a tall ship. Not a cruise, but an intimate, casual and relaxing private yacht-like experience aboard the Royal Clipper, the first five-mast, fully rigged sailing ship to be built since 1902, inspired by the historic “Preussen”. The turquoise waters of the Caribbean were an ideal backdrop for an exhilarating 7-night journey throughout the Grenadine Islands that captivated Marlys and George in mind, body and soul. This was the ultimate sea-going experience, balancing the splendor, adventure, and tradition of sailing with superb service, amenities and accommodations, up close and personal without lines or crowds. Idyllic in every way.
