Lindblad Expeditions has announced two brand-new itineraries aboard the 58-guest Sea Cloud, a luxurious 30-sail vessel that blends old-world traditions with modern-day comforts. On these new rarefied journeys, guests will discover the magic of sailing along the stunning coasts of Croatia and Slovenia or to ancient sites in the Western Mediterranean—and the thrill of life under sail on an historic ship.
A legend both of her time and today, Sea Cloud harkens back to the golden age of sailing. The four-masted barque, launched in 1931, is sumptuously appointed with the most opulent furnishings, specially chosen by her first owner, socialite Marjorie Merriweather Post. It is the perfect platform to travel among islands and along storied coasts, a bridge to history in a land bursting with it—alongside an expert expedition team. Video Tour.
