MEDITERRANEAN YOGA CRUISE
Join Spirit Journeys aboard Starclipper tall sailing ship the Star Flyer for our exclusive Sailing & Yoga cruise which offers an experience that is like no other. If you are looking for an adventure on the waves which includes the atmosphere and character of traditional sailing but still with the comfort and luxury found on most modern cruises; you have come to the right place. Our exclusive yoga cruise will provide the opportunity to meet new people, see new places and, most of all, create the holiday experience of a lifetime. Welcome to our sailing & yoga cruise.
Feel the wind in your hair and the salty breeze in your face as you sail aboard this magnificent tall ship. This sailing ship provides a much more intimate experience than you may expect to find on board a contemporary cruise liner, and whilst the surroundings you find yourself in hark back to the ships of the nineteenth century, the superb, personable service will be on hand to make you feel right at home.
