How does your company compare to competitors? 1. Star Clippers is “Authentic Sailing” … unique, no-one else offers this experience. Perceived competitor, Windstar Cruises, is a cruise ship with some sails and does not deliver a true sailing experience. 2. Very strong loyalty factor – over 60% of guests repeat, 2/3rds within the first year, thus offering Star Clippers to your clients is like an annuity which pays dividends today and in the future. 3. An intimate, pampering, casual and relaxing environment that combines the magic and romance of sails with itineraries built on wind-charts for optimal sailing, transporting sophisticated travelers to marquis ports and off-the-beaten hidden gems around the world … that is the unique Star Clippers experience.
