A journey aboard the Sea Cloud, which carries only 64 passengers, is an intimate experience on one of the most elegant and luxurious vessels afloat. Her snow-white hull, warm teak superstructure, and gleaming brass fittings define her rich tradition and heritage. Although she is equipped with auxiliary diesel engines, sails are the essence of this cruise experience and they are unfurled as often as possible. Built during a time when the greatest attention was paid to detail and fine craftsmanship, the Sea Cloud is decorated with original oil paintings, antique furniture, rich wood paneling, and brass and bronze fixtures. On the main deck, original staterooms are beautifully appointed in their individual styles, some with fireplaces (Staterooms 1–8), and each with a private marble bath with a tub and/or shower. Lunch and dinner include fine wine and beer; there is one seating at dinner. The ship’s technical equipment includes the latest in radar, satellite navigational aids, and satellite communications; there is also an onboard doctor.
