- Luxury Expedition Ship
The Sea Cloud is a glorious and gracious luxury sailing yacht, a four-masted bark, custom built in 1931 by the business magnate E.F. Hutton for his wife the heiress, Marjorie Merriweather Post.
Her sleek, snow-white hull elegantly curves from stem to stern and her masts stretch high into the sky. The ship’s decks offer the grandeur of rich mahogany, teak and gleaming brass and the magnificent golden eagle figurehead seems poised to fly across the waters. There is no ship afloat that can compare for grace, fine service and the sheer joy of sailing.
Sails are raised by hand by a spirited crew. She carries 30 sails measuring a total of 32,000 square feet. Although the ship is enormously elegant, she is also friendly and informal, making for a relaxed time. Dress aboard ship is also relaxed and casual.
The elegance continues in the public areas. The covered Lido Bar is a superb place to congregate and enjoy the outdoors. The open-air “Blue Lagoon” is a wonderful place to relax. The sumptuous Lounge is the venue for talks and presentations by the expedition staff. Guests are welcome on the “Open Bridge” to learn how Sea Cloud is navigated and sailed.
Meals are served in single seatings, and meals focus on local and Continental cuisine. Wines are included at lunch and dinner. Refreshments are always available. Dress is relaxed and casual.
