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. A third sailing vessel, the three-masted Sea Cloud Spirit, will join the fleet in August, 2020.

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.)
