    Clipper Cruise Line was founded in 1982 by St. Louis-businessman Barney Ebsworth. A subsidiary of INTRAV, the deluxe-tour operator, Clipper today offers a wide array of international and domestic voyages aboard its four small cruise ships. In September 1999, Clipper and its parent company, INTRAV, were purchased by Swiss-based Kuoni Travel Holding Ltd. Clipper remains a separate business entity in the marketplace. Anticipating growing demand for smaller cruise ships with minimal impact on the environment from the beginning, Clipper’s two U.S.-flaged cruise ships, the 100-passenger Nantucket Clipper, built in 1984, and the 138-passenger Yorktown Clipper, built in 1988, were designed with the shallow draft and easy maneuverability necessary to provide access to secluded areas beyond the reach of larger cruise ships and mainstream tourism. These ships sail a diverse selection of itineraries along the waterways of the Americas and in the Caribbean. To satisfy the demand for itineraries further afield, the 122-passenger expedition ship Clipper Adventurer, which sails from Europe to the High Arctic and to Antarctica, and the luxurious 128-passenger Clipper Odyssey, with itineraries in the Far East and Pacific, were added to the fleet, offering a wide array of new voyages to our passengers. All of Clipper's journeys feature onboard naturalists, historians or other experts, selected for the particular destination. These lecturers enhance the passengers' enjoyment of the places visited as these voyages focus on education and exploration, rather than entertainment. Clipper  known for its substantive itineraries - comfortably appointed small cruise ships, friendly and accommodating crews, and top-notch cuisine  has been named one of the top-ten cruise lines in the world for the past five years by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine.
