Sea Cloud

Return to the golden age of sail aboard this hand-sailed, four-masted ship

Overview

Traveling aboard Sea Cloud, a historic four-masted barque, is an overall multisensory experience of the rarest kind—and this is true wherever you choose to explore. Sea Cloud in the Caribbean is idyllic because little competes with the sensual pleasure of the balmy air and the constant trade winds that invite everyone out on deck. And Sea Cloud in the Mediterranean is quintessential because it provides nonstop opportunities to set off from our anchorages or ports—where Sea Cloud is invariably the most beautiful ship—to explore the extraordinary beauty and charm of coastal towns and linger among antiquities and sites "sacred" to Western civilization.

The sheer opulence—antique furnishings, marble fireplaces, gold fixtures, exquisite accoutrements—of Sea Cloud is a testament to the efforts of the ship’s original owners, businesswoman and socialite heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and finance tycoon E.F. Hutton, who spared no expense in tasteful decoration. Supposedly they never asked the price of a single item while outfitting her.

Whether you’re passively watching the athletic young crew scrambling high in the rigging, lolling in what Marjorie Merriweather Post called the “Blue Lagoon,” or learning to capture the sun on the sails with your Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, life aboard Sea Cloud is either the point or the perfect interlude between explorations. And remember, another rarity we offer is Sea Cloud elegance, enjoyed with Lindblad Expeditions’ signature informality—pack your deck shoes and shorts, please!
