Navigating Southern Italy and Coastal Croatia aboard Sea Cloud II
The transcendent beauty of the Amalfi Coast, Sicily’s storied shores, and Croatia’s lost-in-time walled old towns seduce like the sirens that entranced Odysseus on his voyages in this region. Wind god Aeolus will fill the many square sails of our magnificent barque as we explore the volcanic Aeolian Islands and journey around the foot of Italy’s boot. As the Tyrrhenian Sea flows into the Ionian and then the Adriatic, discover castles and walled cities, picturesque waterfronts and intricately ornamented churches. There will be ample time at leisure to enjoy the amenities of Sea Cloud II and to stroll along the cobblestone streets of UNESCO-designated old towns.

Sea Cloud II
Sail in style aboard a unique vessel that’s a perfect combination of nostalgic elegance and modern comfort
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. A romantic tall ship with every modern comfort, Sea Cloud II combines the spaciousness and welcome amenities of a contemporary vessel with the grace and elegance of a square rigger. Inspired by the legendary 1930s yacht Sea Cloud, Sea Cloud II embodies the Golden Age of Sail; yet, it is modernly built, reflecting today’s standards of luxury. From marble bathrooms and elegant furnishings to televisions and climate controls, comfortable cabins have expected amenities.
