Royal Clipper with full sails

You do realise that the only thing between us and the jaws of a great white shark is a piece of string?” observed my fellow passenger. Until then I had been happy lounging on the safety net below the bowsprit of Royal Clipper, photographing the dolphins riding the bow wave beneath us. I put my camera away sharpish and clambered back on deck.

I had boarded Royal Clipper the day before, in Grenada, for a five-day tour of the Grenadines. The 227-passenger Royal Clipper is the world’s largest five-masted ship, its small passenger count meaning you get to know fellow travellers: the two minutes it takes to walk around the ship – along elegant corridors and up and down Edwardian-style staircases – means you can’t fail to meet and talk to everyone else.
