Despite Sea Cloud Spirit’s elegant, old-world features, the three-masted, fully rigged ship feels like a luxury yacht once you’re onboard. There are 69 cabins, including three Owner’s Suites, all traditionally outfitted with dark, lacquered wood, red-and-yellow furnishings, ample lounge space and plenty of natural light from oversized windows.
The ship has a spacious lounge and library; fine-dining restaurant with a 180-degree panoramic view of the ocean; bar and bistro; sun deck with loungers; boutique; spa with two treatment rooms, a Finnish sauna, steam bath, beauty parlor and salon; fitness room; swim platform with water sports; and four Zodiacs for day excursions. There is a crew of 85, so exceptional service is guaranteed. Both casual and fine-dining options are available, each with a strong focus on fresh and organic food from local suppliers. And though the ships are elegant enough to host black-tie affairs, there is, refreshingly, a casual dress code.
Sea Cloud Spirit prides itself on its eco-friendly offerings: When sailing isn’t possible, the ship relies on environmentally conscious diesel-electric drives, which use low-sulfur marine diesel in place of heavy oils. And because of its size, Sea Cloud Spirit can travel to smaller, less-frequented ports in Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, Costa Rica, Panama and throughout Europe. The inaugural sail this August will take you to the western Mediterranean for a 13-night voyage, and future trips will sail to the South of France, Spain, Morocco, the Canary Islands and the Caribbean.
