Review of Sea Cloud
The Sea Cloud is a tall sailing cruise ship of the Lindblad Expeditions line. The vessel was built in 1931 by Krupp Germaniawerft, Kiel, Germany (and rebuilt in 1979), initially as a private yacht. Sea Cloud was last refurbished in 2011 by MWB-Werft, Bremerhaven).
History - construction & ownership
The 2,532-ton, 64-passenger cruise ship Sea Cloud also served as a weather ship for US Coast Guard and US Navy during WWII. Following the war, the Sea Cloud sail ship served as a yacht for many people, including as Dominican Republic’s presidential yacht. Sea Cloud cruise ship is very much like a private shelter and boasts some of the most appealing cabins and public rooms at sea.
Cruise itinerary program
MV Sea Cloud has three passenger decks and only 32 cabins in 8 grades, all of which outside. Sea Cloud cabins vary considerably, and essentially there are two distinct accommodation types. Ten original cabins (among the most desired ever) are accessed by spiral staircase that leads from the library. All the rest are relatively small, though modern additions. Each of the cabins is individually decorated, as the original ones feature expansive baths, antique furniture, decorative fireplaces, walk-in closets.
Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks
Food and service are exceptional, and meals are often served on deck. Dinner is served in ship’s original dining room three times a week, from a fixed menu. Menus have European influence, though the cuisine is sometimes tempered by the nationality of guests onboard. The most exciting part of the day is an afternoon snack on the promenade deck of Sea Cloud ship. The baker prepares a new treat each day, including waffles with ice cream, an elaborate afternoon tea or crepes to order. Complimentary wine flows freely at meals.
Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport
The most remarkable feature of Sea Cloud is her four masts, twenty-nine sails and tangled web of lines which stretches 178 feet skyward to support rigging. Unlike the other modern, operated electronically cruise ships, all sail setting on Sea Cloud is done by hand. Eighteen crew members perform dazzling acrobatics, suspended over the ocean.
