Discover these alluring islands under sail

Set sail aboard the majestic four-masted Sea Cloud on a journey into the culture, history, and cuisine of Sicily and Malta. Step into the past among cities and temples left behind by the Romans, Greeks, Carthaginians, and prehistoric peoples—to name just a few. From Taormina to Gozo, wander through charming towns where modern-day life thrives amid glorious vestiges of ancient civilizations, and challenge your conceptions of Italian cuisine as you taste Sicily’s take on pizza, pastries, and wine. We’ll visit no fewer than four UNESCO World Heritage sites: Agrigento, Siracusa, the Aeolian Islands, Malta’s megalithic temples, and we’ll have views of a fifth—Mount Etna. Savor Sea Cloud’s elegant comfort during afternoons under billowing sails, and enjoy an incomparable Mediterranean adventure that harkens back to the golden age of ship travel.
