SEA CLOUD CRUISES

 
She is a beauty. Under full sail, the bow proudly pushing out of the waves, she pulls over and the viewer cannot escape the impression that the four-masted bark is fully aware of its effect. We are talking about the grand dame of cruise ships, the SEA CLOUD. This year she is celebrating her 85th birthday and if she could speak, she would probably tell a lot of her turbulent past.

That she was built as a luxurious private yacht of an American heiress. During the Second World War, all masts stripped for weather observation and submarine hunting in the Atlantic. Perhaps she would also recall episodes of her short career as a "party ship" with a Caribbean dictator or the sad memories of the long years of oblivion into which she fell thereafter. One thing she would have to say in any case: How she became once again what she once was - a proud diva of the seas.

And with star appeal, she is back on the waves again. Since the 80s this five-star tall ship has brought her max.64 passengers to the most beautiful places in the world, she is in many ways as imperative in the journey as the actual destination of a trip. Whether the "globetrotter" marvels at port cities of the Mediterranean Sea, visits charming bays in the Caribbean or crosses the Atlantic - hand-sailed up to 11 knots quickly, the SEA CLOUD lies in the wind and lets its guests feel the power of the elements. The atmosphere on board is stylish but casual: one travels among peers - among friends. The long-standing, 60-strong crew is an integral part of this community and is keen to take care of the passengers: service, ambience and cuisine - all at the highest level, but without stiff collars and exaggerated etiquette.

This holds true as well for the sister ship, the SEA CLOUD II. She will be 15 years old this year and can accommodate 94 guests.
On the occasion of the jubilee - together they celebrate a two-century SEA CLOUD - the two go together in the autumn from Malta. As always, under full sails, and probably in the awareness of how beautiful they are.


     DISCOVER STORIES
LANDSCAPE & ENVIRONMENT

In the summer, the far north and the Mediterranean attract, while dream destinations such as Panama, Costa Rica, Cuba and the Lesser Antilles are visited in winter. With the wind, the SEA CLOUD and SEA CLOUD II always go towards the sun. Anchored preferably in smaller ports that are a bit off the main stream of tourists, so every landing is an experience – at any time of the year.
ARCHITECTURE & INTERIOR

Timeless and elegant, the style of the two unique windjammer shows. Precious woods, beautiful brass details, and warm fabrics characterize the picture and immediately invite you to feel comfortable on board. While the original SEA CLOUD has been restored to the character of a private yacht, it still carries the hallmarks of the original owner. The SEA CLOUD II combines the comfort and spaciousness of a modern cruise ship with the classic charm of her sister.
PLEASURE & HOSPITALITY

It is the small, exquisite details that make a cruise an exceptional experience. From luxurious amenities to exquisite, creative cuisine and first-class service, exclusivity on board the SEA CLOUD and the SEA CLOUD II is taken very personally. The whole crew enjoys the pampering - and always surpassing the expectations of the guest.
