The company provides casual, active cruises aboard nineteenth-century clipper replicas sailing ships to unusual destinations in the Caribbean, South Asia and Mediterranean. Among the sailing ships cruise lines, Star Clippers is intended to fit between budget priced Windjammer Barefoot Cruises and pricey Windstar Cruises. Typical passengers are half from the Americas (U.S., Canada, Latin America) and the other half from Europe. They are active travelers, seeking adventure and off-the-beaten-track itineraries, not interested with casinos and night clubs. The man at the helm of Star Clippers is Mikael Krafft, a Swedish entrepreneur who, at the age of 6, landed his first job at a shipyard near his home in the Stockholm archipelago. As a child, Krafft listened to the stories the old seamen told, and his love of sailing was born. When he was 12, he sailed his own 18-foot boat over 20 miles of open seas. Later, he practiced maritime law in Sweden and France. In 1986, Krafft relocated to Brussels where he founded the White Star Group, involved with real estate development. White Star Group is the parent company of White Star Clippers, which commissioned Star Flyer and Star Clipper. Krafft launched the Star Flyer and Star Clipper in 1991 and 1992 in Belgium. They were the first clipper ships since 1911 to be granted the certificate of highest quality by Lloyd's Register of Shipping. The even more ambitions Royal Clipper was launched in 2000, the largest clipper ship built in a century. 

On the employment side, these ships offer limited number of positions. Casino and entertainment departments staff should be looking for jobs with other cruise lines. On the other hand, working on a sailing ship will be a blast for the right people.
