Mediterranean aboard Sea Cloud, New and Noteworthy

Isles of Antiquity: Malta, Sardinia, and the Balearic Sea

Sail through antiquity on a seven-island Mediterranean adventure

Discover seven vibrant Mediterranean islands the way they were meant to be seen—aboard a spectacular tall-masted sailing ship. As we ply the turquoise waters, taking time to enjoy life at full sail, wake up in a new picturesque port every day, stroll through lively harbors and charming old towns, and climb the bastions of hilltop castles for sweeping Mediterranean views. This region is rich in ancient history—from Sicily’s Valley of the Temples to Gozo’s ancient temples of Ġgantija—and our experts will contextualize the prehistoric structures which provide insight into the ways of life of the Romans, Carthaginians, Byzantines, and other populations that have seen their civilizations rise and fall here.

  • Sail aboard the historic Sea Cloud and discover the romance of tall ship sailing as you effortlessly visit major islands of the Mediterranean like Sicily, Malta, and Corsica

  • Encounter multiple UNESCO World Heritage sites—including Sardinia’s Su Nuraxi di Barumini and the city of Valletta—brought to life by expert historians and archaeologists

  • Explore Menorca’s Bronze Age village of Torralba d’en Salord and see the characteristic T-shaped stone monuments left by the Talayotic peoples

  • Savor celebrated culinary specialties on visits to markets and vineyards
