SEA CLOUD in Venice

ABOVE: Sea Cloud (sans sails) in Venice, Italy.

Sea Cloud Cruises is an ultra-luxury line with two sailing vessels: the Sea Cloud, a four-masted barque that was built in 1931 for financier E.F. Hutton and his wife, the cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post; and the Sea Cloud II, a modern square-rigger in the classic windjammer tradition. Both vessels are true sailing ships with manually set rigging.

The company is based in Hamburg, Germany and has an office in the United States, where it has attracted a following among wealthy sailing enthusiasts. (A majority of the company's passengers are American, and service staff are fluent in English.)
