Sea Cloud II is an alluring sailing vessel perfectly suited to travel the scenic shores of Italy and Croatia, exploring little-seen archipelagos and anchoring in small coves.

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