5-star windjammer SEA CLOUD II to visit Costa Rica for the first time

In January 2012 the SEA CLOUD II, the last windjammer ever built on which guests can experience the sails being set and all the sailing maneuvers performed by hand without any buttons being pushed, will transit the Panama Canal for the first time to discover the sailing waters of the Pacific for itself.

A special travel destination is Costa Rica, the "Switzerland of Central America" right on the doorstep of the USA. The voyage with the SEA CLOUD II combines the experience of sailing along the Pacific coast with a variety of shore visits leading to the most beautiful National Parks of Costa Rica. Biologists, local guides and lecturers on board the SEA CLOUD II divulge the secrets of Costa Rica's countryside to guests while they enjoy the highest level of comfort that a 5-star cruise ship has to offer.

Dates: Puerto Caldera (San José) - Puerto Caldera, January 16-23, 2012 or January 23-30, 2012, 8 days/7 nights from USD 3,995 p.p. in a guaranteed 2-bed outside cabin incl. shore trips.


The SEA CLOUD II was put into service in 2001, the younger sister of the legendary SEA CLOUD, which was built 80 years ago for the American entrepreneurial married couple Edward Hutton and Marjorie Merriweather Post. On the main deck of the SEA CLOUD the eight original cabins are still preserved in the luxurious style of the 1930's. Up to 64 sailing enthusiasts and recreation seekers can sail to the most beautiful destinations in Europe, Central America and the Caribbean in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. The 47 cabins on the SEA CLOUD II are furnished in a similar style; on board there is also a sauna and fitness area for guests who enjoy sporting activity as well as massage treatments for relaxation. The fleet of SEA CLOUD CRUISES is rounded off by an elegant river yacht, the RIVER CLOUD II with 44 cabins, which traverses the most beautiful rivers in Europe between April and October.
