Experience the sea closer than ever on Sea Cloud Cruises. Step back in time when sailing was a way of life, and the only real way to see the world. The windjammers SEA CLOUD and SEA CLOUD II have been chartering their own course for years, and in 2020, the new SEA CLOUD SPIRIT will join the fleet – offering guests three extraordinary sailing vessels to experience. Watch our deckhands hoist and unfurl the sails by hand, and experience true seafaring on board our yachts. Here the sea is always within reach, not a dozen decks away. Every sailing cruise becomes a special travel experience, for people who yearn for something unique and different.
These three sailing ships have to be seen to be believed. Featuring some of the tallest masts in the world, they sail using computer technology (where conditions permit) to some of the smaller out of the way destinations that others simply can’t get to. Unlike the behemoth ships of other lines, these are real sailing vessels, and as a result the accommodation is quite small. This isn’t a bad thing, it’s just representative of their type of vessel. Their size means that you’ll get to know everyone on board quickly and make new friends. You’ll never think of this as a cruise holiday!
