Robert Stoeger (Running on Waves): “We want our passengers to feel that they are in a private yacht”

Robert Stoeger, Hotel Manager of the clipper Running on Waves talks to TravelDailyNews International about the unique concept of one of the most luxurious ships of its kind. Running on Waves started sailing in the Aegean Sea and the Ionian Sea this June 2022 cruising around the Greek islands.

Forget the crowds and buffets of massive cruise ships. This summer, set sail on a luxurious, intimate adventure aboard a clipper ship, exploring the hidden gems of Greece, Italy, and Croatia. In this interview, Robert Stoeger, Hotel Manager of the clipper Running on Waves, the hotel manager, shares the unique experience offered by his vessel.

Diverse Itineraries for a Customised Experience:

While primarily based in Greece, the clipper offers various itineraries throughout the summer. Charter the entire ship for a private gathering, or join fixed itineraries for individual cabin bookings. With only 18 cabins accommodating a maximum of 30 guests, you’ll experience an unparalleled level of personalization and flexibility.

Beyond the Ship: Immersing Yourself in Nature:

Unlike large cruise ships focused on onboard entertainment and revenue generation, this clipper prioritizes immersing you in the natural beauty of your surroundings. Anchor in small ports inaccessible to larger vessels, and indulge in water activities like kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding directly from the ship.

A Private Yacht Atmosphere:

Imagine the camaraderie and intimacy of a private yacht cruise. This is the essence of the clipper experience. Guests mingle, dine together, and explore ashore as a community. The informal and relaxed atmosphere ensures everyone feels welcome and cared for, truly making the ship their home away from home.

Luxury in Personalized Service:

With a maximum of 30 guests, the crew can provide attentive and personalized service, akin to that of a private yacht. Forget rigid schedules and formality; instead, enjoy a laid-back atmosphere where every need is anticipated and catered to.

Escape the Crowds, Embrace the Adventure:

If you seek an authentic and luxurious escape on the open seas, this clipper ship offers an unforgettable alternative. Explore breathtaking coastlines, soak up the sun and serenity, and forge lasting memories with fellow travelers. So, set sail on an adventure that goes beyond the ordinary and discover the magic of small-ship cruising.
