On the new voyages, tourists will discover the Adriatic Sea's stunning coasts (Croatia and Slovenia) and the Western Mediterranean's ancient sites.
The 30-sail boat (4-masted barque) Sea Cloud was launched back in 1931. She is sumptuously appointed with opulent furnishings chosen by her first owner, socialite Marjorie Merriweather Post. Sea Cloud is the best platform to sail along storied coasts and among islands.
Both itineraries are studded with landmarks, with sites both seldom seen and legendary.
