Repositioning cruises

Each spring or fall, like clockwork, cruise lines shift their ships from one part of the world to another. These seasonal relocations, called repositionings, offer terrific bargains, lots of languid days at sea, and, often, uncommon ports of call.
Star Clippers' fleet offers trans-Atlantic crossings on authentic sail ships. During these journeys, in spring and fall, passengers enjoy talks on sailing history by guest lecturers available only on trans-Atlantic routes. The captain and crew also offer hands-on navigation lessons and the chance to climb the mast and help raise and lower the billowing white sails. On March 25, the 170-passenger Star Flyer departs Phuket, Thailand, for Athens on a 37-night voyage that calls at Similian Islands, Thailand; Colombo, Sri Lanka; Cochin and Goa, India; Safaga, Sharm al-Sheikh, Port Said and Alexandria, Egypt; Rhodes and Mykonos, Greece. Fares start at $4,070.
