Sea Cloud was built in 1931 by Wall Street businessman E. F. Hutton for his wife, Marjorie Merriweather Post. There is no ship afloat that can compare for grace, fine service and the sheer joy of sailing. Sails are raised by hand by a spirited crew. She carries 30 sails measuring a total of 32,000 square feet. Although the ship is enormously elegant, she is also friendly and informal, making for a relaxed time. Dress aboard ship is also relaxed and casual.
Public Areas: The covered Lido Bar is a superb place to congregate and enjoy the outdoors. The open-air “Blue Lagoon” is a wonderful place to relax. The sumptuous Lounge is the venue for talks and presentations by our expedition staff. Guests are welcome on the “Open Bridge” to learn how Sea Cloud is navigated and sailed.
Meals: Served in single seatings, meals focus on local and Continental cuisine. Wines are included at lunch and dinner. Refreshments are always available.
Cabins: Cabins have antique and period-style furniture. The Main Deck has the ship’s original cabins, including the Owner’s Suites originally occupied by E.F. Hutton and Marjorie Merriweather Post. Cabins on the Promenade and Captain’s Decks have exquisite furnishings.
