About the Sea Cloud II
A modern three-mast sailing ship, Sea Cloud II was built by devoted sailors who love the romance of sailing. The hand-sailed square-rigger was constructed in traditional style but with fine amenities, and modern navigation and safety features. With more than 30,000 square feet of billowing sail propelling the ship along, Sea Cloud II slices silently through the waters when the engines are turned off. When there’s not enough wind to sustain sufficient speed, up to two diesel engines can kick in. Sea Cloud II features spacious deck areas, elegant public rooms and fine accommodations.
All meals are served in one main dining room, but with an early-risers breakfast also offered on the Lido Deck. Single-seating meals are at unassigned tables, so that passengers may meet and mingle. The menu features Nouvelle Cuisine, enhanced by regional specialties depending on where the ship is sailing. Complimentary fine wines and beers are served with lunch and diner. Sunset cocktail hours are held nightly at the Lido Bar.
Four categories of cabins are available. The two Owner’s Suites on Lido Deck feature separate living and sleeping rooms, panoramic windows, king-sized canopy bed (using two side-by-side mattresses), decorative fireplace, and tub and separate shower. The remaining categories feature queen-sized beds (all use two mattresses). Sixteen junior suites are distinguished by panoramic windows and larger living spaces than the remaining cabins, which feature portholes. All cabins feature mini-bar, television with VCR, bath with gold-plated fixtures and marble sink.
Cabins range from 215 square feet to 323 square feet.
In the Know
With crewmembers constantly engaged, clambering aloft to unfurl sails and adjust trim, Sea Cloud II also offers passengers opportunities to learn navigational and nautical skills — from knot-tying to the use of a sextant. After a day on the decks, return to lavishly furnished cabins or relax in the sun-filled lounge overlooking the ship’s forepeak.
The Sea Cloud II is also equipped with:
- Guest e-mail station
- Laundry service
- Small water sports platform
