Treasures of the Caribbean
DURATION:8 Days/ 7 NightsREGION:North AmericaSHIP:Sea Cloud
The many treasures of the Grenadines - majestic volcanoes, colourful reefs and the scent of nutmeg and vanilla are highlights of this classic Caribbean windjammer expedition. Starting and finishing in Barbados, this eight day itinerary includes a visit to the famed resort town of St. Georges, along with plenty of time to soak up outstanding scenery, explore pristine white sand beaches and interact with the laid back locals of the Caribbean.
The historic tall ship Sea Cloud brings together the best of two worlds. This elegant three-masted ship offers all the amenities of a modern cruise ship whilst remaining a quintessential windjammer. With its three expansive decks, fine dining and a generous range of facilities on offer in its guest cabins, Sea Cloud delivers five-star luxury which is sure to impress even the most seasoned small ship cruisers and gourmands.
Operated by: Sea Cloud Cruises
This grandest of tall ships was built in 1931 by American businessman E. F. Hutton for his wife, Marjorie Merriweather Post. Sea Cloud embodies true elegance and there is no ship afloat that can compare for grace, fine service and the sheer joy of sailing. She carries 30 sails (all raised by hand) measuring a total of 3,000 square metres, and a main mast towering some 54 metres above the deck.
Only a classic windjammer can give you that feeling of boundless freedom - a feeling that reaches its pinnacle as you sail the seas under open skies. This is a feeling that pervades the Sea Cloud at all times, manifested in the onboard lifestyle and forged by the expansive space of the three decks, the relaxed social atmosphere and the space for private contemplation. Accommodating just 64 guests, served by a crew of 60, you will always be able to find a quiet spot for relaxation or contemplation aboard this exquisite ship.
The lounge, oak-panelled restaurant, lido deck dining area and the cabins are all imbued with stylish comfort. Every area has its own way of enticing visitors, so you will still discover new favourite places even after days. The decks of Sea Cloud are therefore an ideal place to transform any journey into a very special experience.
