Sea Cloud

Sea Cloud was originally commissioned by the tycoon E.F.Hutton for his wife, the heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, in the late 1920’s. At the time, and even today, she is one of the finest and most opulent sailing ships in the world. The Huttons set out to create an incomparably luxurious vessel and succeeded beyond imagination. Accustomed to the very finest things in life, Marjorie Merriweather Post undertook the interior design of the ship with a relish that resulted in the most sumptuous of fittings with interiors panelled in carved oak, fitted with Italian marble and elegantly furnished with antiques. To this day Sea Cloud still exudes the same timeless elegance, combining extravagance with a friendly charm and the thrill of an authentic windjammer experience. With carefully restored original cabins, golden taps and magnificent marble fireplaces, this yacht simply is, and remains, the most beautiful, legendary windjammer of all time. You will sail with just 60 fellow guests and once under way, Sea Cloud provides an experience no conventional cruise ship can possibly emulate.

  • Your Cabin / Suite

    All the cabins onboard Sea Cloud have their own, unique charm. If you want a stylishly elegant, cosy and modern cabin, then your best option would be one of the 18 outer cabins on the lido or promenade decks; these modern cabins have been seamlessly integrated into the ship. Perhaps the most maritime cabins are the four former officers’ cabins, which have been carefully restored. These cabins feature a pair of bunks and a door which leads straight out onto the covered section of the promenade deck. On the main deck you will find the remarkable original cabins. Among these are the two famous suites which were once occupied by the ship’s owners. 

  • Your Space

    Selected picture books, high-quality literature, popular board games and a writing desk with a laptop can all be found in the cosy lounge on the promenade deck. Next door is the oak-panelled restaurant, used as a salon by the first owner’s of the vessel. Just like on a private yacht, you can sit down to dine at the beautiful long tables and, of course, you can choose any place to sit.

    If the weather is fine, you might like to sit on the lido deck at lunch time. The tasty snacks served at the buffet in the open air will both whet and satisfy your appetite. At certain times, the onboard pianist will provide pleasant background music to your conversations. The lido bar is a cosy place to wind down the evening. Quite befitting for any traditional sailing ship, the atmosphere can also get rather vibrant when the Crew Shanty Choir makes an appearance.

    Not only is the promenade deck a quick route from one end of the ship to the other; in good weather, you will also find some very tasty refreshments there. The coffee, tea and light snacks are ideal for those who rise early, but also to provide sustenance in the afternoon between meals. Just imagine a freshly made waffle with ice cream under the white sails of a ship - that really is pure paradise!

    Excellent views of the sea and the 30 majestic sails can of course be enjoyed from the bridge, where a range of historic nautical instruments almost conceal the modern technology. Operational circumstances permitting, the officers on the bridge will also be happy to answer questions about “their” sailing ship.

    GANGWAYS & SAFETY

    Sea Cloud will ensure that the gangways are safe and that the crew and team are on hand to assist you. Please be especially careful onboard the ship as by the nature of its design there are many things to trip on and surfaces can be slippery. Please watch the ledges in doorways and the projecting bulkheads on the private decks and take extra care when moving around. 

    ITINERARY

    You will already have a rough itinerary listing the main stops of your voyage. However, much depends on sea conditions and other local factors; details of the daily schedule will be provided during the previous evening’s briefing. Guests are asked to remain patient and flexible. We do our best to devise as interesting and exciting programmes as possible but, being in the nature of a sea cruise, it is not always possible to follow itineraries to the letter. Please keep an eye on the Daily Schedule in the reception area.

    Daily Briefing

    This will be held in the Lounge most evenings. This is an opportunity to discuss events, places visited and the cruise’s progress.

    The onboard hospital is staffed by a ship’s doctor, whom can be reached at all times in case of emergency.

    MONEY MATTERS

    The onboard currency is the Euro. Throughout your cruise, you will sign for all purchases and will then be presented with your final bill at the end of the cruise.

Please note that although the ship’s staff may be happy to post letters and postcards on your behalf, they may not be able to do so straightaway or indeed at the port of call at which you make such a request.

    Please also note that some postal services are unreliable and that any letters or postcards that you ask to be delivered on your behalf may be delayed or even lost en-route. Under no circumstances can we be held liable for such occurrences and we would recommend that you post your own letters or postcards to be more certain of their prompt delivery.

    There is no smoking permitted anywhere inside the ship. Smoking is permitted in the designated outside areas only. Please do not throw your cigarette/cigar butts overboard.
