Set sail this Easter for a carousel of Caribbean delights onboard the legendary windjammer Sea Cloud

October 14, 2014 Cruise No Comments Email Email

The Caribbean, and its idyllic islands,is one of small luxury cruise specialist Sea Cloud’s most popular itineraries. From 26 March to 6 April 2015, Sea Cloud, the self-assured grande dame of the seas, sets out under full sail from Barbados for an 11- night cruise around some of the Caribbean’s most celebrated locations.

While the Caribbean offers perfect sailing conditions for windjammers, this cruise has the added attraction of offering something special for every passenger: the chance to view some of world’s most stunning natural harbours, an opportunity to explore historic villages showcasing the region’s colonial heritage and trips to glamorous beaches and celebrity hideaways.  For those who love cooking, there is even an option to take a Creole cooking course.

Setting sail from the historic city of Bridgetown, Sea Cloud sails with just 64 passengers to the tiny island of Bequia before heading onto Dominica, an island well-known for its unspoiled scenery and its UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Sailing through Sir Frances Drake Channel to the tiny volcanic island of Jost van Dyke, Sea Cloud cruises to St Barthelemy, a popular holiday retreat for the jet set.

The trade winds then take Sea Cloud to the volcanic French-ruled archipelago of Illes des Saintes which is a delightful haven littered with small cafes and shops. The final port before returning to Bridgetown is the beautiful  island of St Lucia, famous for its two volcanic peaks, The Pitons.

Cruise only fares for a double-cabin start from EUR 6,465 per person including all gourmet meals with wines and beers as well as excursions.

Sea Cloud made her debut in 1931 and was widely regarded as the most magnificent sailing yacht in the world. A recent refit polished up the original brass, varnished timber paneling and teak decks of the four-masted windjammer, preserving the luxurious 1930’s style of the cabins, dining room and public areas, to create a unique and impressive backdrop for this voyage.
