Dear Windjammer Friends, The storm has passed at last. Having circumnavigated the shoals, our entire crew is looking forward to crossing the high seas with you again. From the enforced stoppage in port, we have emerged relieved and empowered. On the one hand, we owe this to the support of our guests, many of whom have remained loyal to us for years. And on the other hand, the immediate experience has shown how up to date our concept of sustainable tourism, which we have cultivated for more than 40 years, is right now. Tried and tested for centuries, sailing is the relaxed way to discover new horizons. Traveling in a small circle of like-minded people leaves plenty of room for individuality while offering safety at the same time. Meeting the people in the visited regions with respect and thus enjoying their welcome is the basis for an extraordinary experience. Quite rightly, this may be called the best time of the year. Thanks to our new SEA CLOUD SPIRIT, the 2021/2022 season will give you even more opportunities for such unique moments. After all, an additional ship means that the world of SEA CLOUD CRUISES will expand already from next winter. Either you will find your perfect spot aboard the SEA CLOUD and SEA CLOUD II in their secret home territory, the Caribbean. Or you will get the chance to explore the warm European waters around the Canary Islands onboard the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT. While our new ship will take over the summer season in Northern Europe, the SEA CLOUD II will finally set course for Istanbul again, on the dreamlike sailing route along idyllic ports of the Aegean Sea. In winter 2022/2023 we will not only sail the Panama Canal for the first time with the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT, but also the Bahamas around Eleuthera and Exuma off the beaten track from/to Miami. There is so much new to discover. The following pages invite you to take a relaxed look at the many travel options. Whether you are a loyal sailing enthusiast or a newcomer to cruises on a tall ship – we welcome you on board to join us on an extraordinary journey of discovery. Managing Directors:

Hermann Ebel

Enjoy the best days of the year with a clear conscience and positve feeling. For more than 40 years, we have been pursuing the principle of sustainable tourism. Travelling with a small number of guests creates space for great things. Meeting people at eye-level in the countries you visit, experiencing cultures, appreciating regional values and creating added value for the region. This is pointing the way ahead because it is in keeping with the times.

Our contribution to a mindful and contemporary way of traveling.

Sailing is what you and we focus on. So it goes without saying that we use every opportunity to hoist the sails and glide along just with the wind. When we need to start the engines, we use low-sulphur Marine diesel on all three windjammers. This is standard for us – even the SEA CLOUD has been equipped with this propulsion technology right from the start.

Shaping a common future together with Futouris: Preserving the heritage of holiday destinations and developing a sustainable future for the travel industry – that is what Futouris stands for! Together the members are commited to the improvement of living conditions, the conservation of biological diversity and environment and to climate protection.

6


Avoid plastics; reduce water consumption; protect the environment. With this in mind we operate our ships and continuously develop environmentally sound alternatives. Small and fine – this also means calling at smaller ports off the busy cruise routes. With a maximum of 64 to 136 guests on board, we are always welcome there because we visit the people in the regions we travel to, rather than overtaxing them.

Buy regionally; work with local, medium-sized agencies; pay fair prices: We see ourselves as partners of our regional service providers, with whom we have built up a trusting cooperation over many years. Because we also want our sea voyages to be a benefit for the people in the regions we visit.

ships, but custom-built vessels. In 2001, the SEA CLOUD II was put into service and from the very first moment combined modern cruising experiences for highest demands with exclusive sailing adventures. The SEA CLOUD SPIRIT, which enters service this year, conveys the same spirit and offers even more amenities to the discerning traveler: Staterooms with private balconies, a wellness and spa area, ocean-view fitness, a spacious sundeck, and an alternate dining option on the lido deck. What began in 1931 with the dream of a millionaire couple and fascinated people then, continues today and will create unforgettable memories to many travelers.

15


Not a classic cruise Bigger, larger, farther – we happily leave that to others. The SEA CLOUDs follow a course of their own. Each of our cruises provides a unique holiday experience: For people like yourself, who value individuality and love the personal touch.

16


17


Setting the sails by hand On the three windjammers, the sails are still traditionally hoisted by hand – a tough job every time. Deftly, the sailors climb into the shrouds, release the heavy cloth, then vigorously tighten the ropes down on deck. There are no buttons that can simply be pressed: It takes almost a full hour until all sails catch the wind.

18


“Our ships never fail to inspire me, even after so many years on board. It is quite fascinating what great options these little yachts offer.”

Kathryn Whittaker, Captain SEA CLOUD II

19


In sync with nature Rather than fighting against it with engine power, we put the wind to good use – proving that great experiences and a positive environmental balance do not contradict each other. Whenever possible, the yachts run under sail. And if that means slight changes to the course due to weather conditions, the captain is happy to oblige.

20


The wind and the sea: Right up close to the elements The scent of salt in your nose, the sound of the waves in your head, and on your skin the touch of the wind that gets caught in the huge sailcloth above: On board a SEA CLOUD, you get right up close to the elements. Here, the sea is always almost within your reach – not a dozen decks away!

21


As intimate as a private yacht Less orchestration, more character: With paramount courteousness and consideration, the crew creates a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere and yet provides impeccable service. In the small group of at most 136 guests, you are bound to enjoy the true private-yacht atmosphere on board.

22


23


Arrive, unwind, savor: The perfect break from the daily grind From the tingling anticipation while filling your suitcase to the moment when you catch the first glimpse of your ship’s masts in the harbor – already the joyful anticipation this one-of-a-kind holiday is invaluable. Our windjammers are havens of tranquility in today’s hectic and stressful life. Leave all that behind – and enjoy utter deceleration on either of the SEA CLOUDs.

24


Just like visiting close friends Whether looking out over the railings at sunrise or watching the sun set at the bar – in no time at all, you are bound to get talking to like-minded sailing aficionados from all over the world. The mutual experiences on board unite: Within just days under sail, everyone feels part of the SEA CLOUD family.

“Here, everyone soon finds their favorite spot: At the bar; in one of the comfy deck chairs; in the blue lagoon with a view of the sea and the sails; or on the bridge with an early-morning coffee.” Vicente Roldan („Bebot“) Barkeeper on the SEA CLOUD

25


26


True seafaring passion Many of our crew members have been loyal to the SEA CLOUDs for 30 years and more. For these men and women, the windjammers are much more than just a place of work – they call them their home. And that you can sense: Also as a guest, you will feel instantly at home on board.

27


A well-attuned team For many crew members, working on “their” SEA CLOUD is like a dream come true. Whether in the engine room, on the bridge or in the restaurant – thanks to the passion for their job, they are completely in sync as a team. And as your proud hosts, they convey their enthusiasm in everything they do.

28


Personable and faceto-face. Every day begins with a smile: On our SEA CLOUDs an incomparably stylish, warm service and a family atmosphere awaits you.

29


Our pleasure: spoiling you With creativity and on the highest level, our chefs bring ever new, exclusive culinary delights to the table. And they like to complement their elaborate menus with local products or fresh fish. The wine selection reflects the routes and never fails to impress with fine wines from the various regions.

30


31


Culinary highlights for gourmets The cuisine on the SEA CLOUDs is innovative and varied, catering to your personal needs and combining classic, modern and maritime elements. At all times, our chefs complement this with regional specialties – whether in the elegant evening menus or the generous lunchtime buffets.

32


Many extras included A glass of champagne at embarkation, the SEA CLOUD chocolate on your pillow ... such little details turn your cruise into something truly special. Lots of extras are already included in the price: soft drinks, water and coffee specialties; during lunch and dinner also beer and selected wines chosen by the sommelier.

Relax and enjoy With the small number of guests on board, there is just a single sitting for every meal. Seating arrangements are not fixed. Our maître d’ will be happy to help you find your place in the restaurant. The dress code for the evening? Stylishly casual – for the Captain’s Dinner, you may opt for something a little more elegant.

“We enjoy our shopping excursions to small markets and selected retailers in search of local specialties – and then pampering the palate of our guests with these delicacies.” Ronny Schenk, Chef de Cuisine

33


Sailing programs with diversity How intensive you want your windjammer experience to be, much depends on individual taste. This is why we propose cruises with varying focus to you, from short breaks to themed cruises with exciting onshore excursions – and, of course, the ultimate sailing adventure: the Atlantic crossing.

34


35


36


Small ships, more possibilities Our cruises offer you a well-balanced mix of real sailing experience and exciting discoveries ashore. Our advantage as a “private yacht”: Besides well-known and -loved destinations, we mostly call at smaller, more individual ports, far off the commonly trodden path of tourists.

37


Special themes, exclusive events Some of our cruises have a particular focus; others propose exclusive events. During these sailing trips, you will gain unique insights – whether you attend a private concert at a museum, or while watching the Classic Yacht Regatta “Les Voiles de Saint Tropez” or the Bucket Regatta in St Barths. A truly special highlight is also the annual “Sailing Together” cruises that offer the amazing experience of seeing our windjammers sail side by side.

38


Get active on board Sailing theory, knot-tying lessons, a visit to the bridge or the engine room – there is plenty of opportunity for first-hand seafaring experiences. As a novelty, you can now also actively join in on deck, for example when sheeting in the lines, hauling the yards and setting sail. If the weather allows, we stop for a swim in the open sea or take the zodiacs out and right around the ship for a photo session. Also well-loved and appreciated: the inspiring talks by the lecturer.

you can hardly get more Caribbean vibes than at a sundowner.

45


Dive in and be active Whether you want to start your swim directly from the ship or explore the colorful world on the reef – water sports are even more fun at bathtub temperatures. Equipment is available for everyone: Snorkels, fins and stand-up paddles are waiting for you. If you are in the mood for even greater action, let yourself be pulled through the waters on a towable tube.

46


Jaunt to the beach When our yachts drop anchor in front of an impressive backdrop, the next dream beach is often just a zodiac ride away. Around the Lesser Antilles, the crystal-clear water beckons you to swim. The Caribbean is the perfect destination to drift through the day without a single thing to worry about.

47


The green side of the Antilles The nature here is as colorful and spirited as the local people and the Creole culture. Volcanic lakes, waterfalls and gardens with tropical plants: On the more southern islands of the Antilles and the Grenadines, the Caribbean shows a completely different aspect. You can discover the diversity of the individual islands on our shore excursions into the hinterland.

ÎLES DES SAINTES Best location in the sheltered bay with a view of the Fort Napoléon.

48


Every island a new treasure chest While on St Lucia, the green volcanic plugs of the two Pitons almost regally greet the approaching SEA CLOUDs from afar, the natural beauty of Dominica holds back a little, yet fascinates with its lush national parks – one of them a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site. And Grenada carries its name “Spice Island” for a good reason: Its air is heavy with the aromas of cloves, ginger and nutmeg.

49


CRUISE DATES ON PAGES 147

Cuba, an island with vibrant temperament Pure joie de vivre A journey to the Caribbean holds many emotional moments. Most moving is probably feeling the contagious joie de vivre of its people. Discover with us the Creole culture, the cradle of Son and Cuba as close as never before.

Whether in the hustle and bustle of Havana or in the colonial towns along the coast, Cuban life has a rhythm quite of its own. Beyond all the clichés of rum, revolution and cigars, the Caribbean island has retained its endearing charm and for many is still both a myth and a place of longing. It is virtually impossible not to succumb to Cuba’s fascination.

Jamaica – a natural beauty Jamaica seems to have invented deceleration: Between natural beaches, the turquoise sea and coconut palms, everything on the sunny Rastafarian island breathes relaxation. The reggae music that Bob Marley introduced to the world sets the pace. The most scenic corner is the area around the small town of Port Antonio with its caves, rivers and waterfalls. It is not for nothing that Ian Fleming chose the island again and again as location for his James Bond movies.

50

CUBA Imposing and colonial: the National Capitol Building of Havana.


Cuba and Jamaica Their hospitality, eventful history and lively music tradition make Cuba and Jamaica two dream destinations in the Caribbean. As different as the two islands are – here, culture, beach and nature go perfectly hand in hand.

51


COSTA RICA Impressive nature in the national parks. About a quarter of the state territory consists of protected jungle.

52


Central America, Costa Rica, Panama and the ABC Islands The contrasts could not be greater: In Central America, you will collect a colorful kaleidoscope of impressions in just a few days. It seems as if many treasures remained skillfully hidden from man over the years: Biodiversity in the Tortuguero National Park or the world’s second-largest coral reef in Belize.

CRUISE DATES ON PAGES 194-205

The colorful flair of the ABC Islands Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao flirt coquettishly with their colonial heritage. Besides the narrow houses with their Dutch gables, colorful divers’ paradises are also to be enjoyed here.

Florida and the Bahamas Between the cool lifestyle of Florida and the crystal-clear waters of the Bahamas, our tall ship sails a brand-new route. Where the big cruise ships pass by, we drop anchor and go on exclusive excursions – discovering hidden places such as the paradise islands of the Exumas.

BAHAMAS Situated just 80 miles off the coast of Florida, the Bahamas archipelago consists of 700 islands. Where the white powdered sugar beaches slope gently down to the sea, swimming and snorkeling fans really get their money’s worth.

Atlantic Coast and Northern Europe Leaning casually against the railings of an elegant tall ship, you can enjoy entirely new perspectives of Northern Europe and the sunny Atlantic Coast. Whether Pintxos, fjords or the gold of the tsars – there is a lot to be discovered between Portugal and the Baltic States.

ST PETERSBURG The Church of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, also called the “Church on the Spilled Blood”

60


CRUISE DATES ON PAGES 170-184

The varied Atlantic Coast From the authentic culinary culture in Portugal and Northern Spain to the art and delicacies of France; and on to traditional merchant towns like Antwerp, Amsterdam and Hamburg that are being rediscovered as modern lifestyle harbors – along the Atlantic Coast, Europe really shows its full diversity.

The splendor of the Baltic metropolises Red brick, white dunes and golden domes: along old trade routes, the journey goes to the most exciting cities of the Baltic. Magnificent merchants’ houses in Gdansk, Tallinn, Riga and Visby still bear witness to the wealth of the Hanseatic era. In St Petersburg, the City of the Tsars, historical splendor meets a young, lively culture. And friends of Scandinavian design can look forward to the cheerful Nordic lifestyle of Copenhagen and Stockholm.

61


Fascinating contrasts If you’re looking for variety, the Canary Islands are just the place for you. While black lava meets colorful art on Lanzarote, Fuerteventura beckons with miles of beaches. Gran Canaria and Tenerife are islands of contrast as well – with their golden dunes and green hinterland, small villages and the mighty peak of Mount Teide.

The Teide and Timanfaya National Parks Some landscapes appear to be out of this world: With the third highest volcano on earth and huge lava tongues, the Teide National Park on Tenerife is a World Natural Heritage Site. On Lanzarote, too, the power of nature created magnificence: the rusty-red fire mountains and ash valleys of Timanfaya.

62

CRUISE DATES ON PAGES 93-97, 110, 141-142, 156-168, 191


Canary Islands and Madeira Some 1000 kilometers/650 miles away from the European mainland, the flower island Madeira and the Canary Islands rise out of the sunny Atlantic Ocean. As volcanic islands, they not only feature highly diverse natural landscapes – they also captivate with their very own cultures and traditions.

GRAN CANARIA is the third largest of the Canary Islands after Tenerife and Fuerteventura. In the hinterland, you will find one of the most original places of the island: Teror.

63


True natural beauties Rippling rivers, dense cloud forest and small tranquil villages – La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma are the magical, quiet treasure chests of the Canaries. Here, great importance is attached to sustainable tourism in order to preserve the pristine nature for future generations.

64


The sea of flowers in the Atlantic Ocean: Madeira The island of eternal spring is a blooming garden with green mountains, lovely evergreen valleys, deep gorges, wild coasts and breathtaking views of the sea. Along the streets, lush hydrangeas form flowering hedges and in the capital Funchal, every balcony wears a colorful flower dress. For hiking enthusiasts and nature lovers there is hardly a more enjoyable winter destination.

LA GOMERA is the second smallest of the Canary Islands that belong to Spain. The island’s rugged volcanic mountain landscape is crisscrossed with hiking trails. Dense forests of ferns and moss-covered trees grow in the mists of the high-altitude Garajonay National Park.

65


Morocco and Cape Verde In some places, life shines with particular intensity. Sunny yellow spices, lush green mountain valleys and walls of red rammed earth – when the SEA CLOUDs set course for Morocco and the Cape Verde Islands, a journey into a world of color begins.

Morocco between trend and tradition Fairytale royal city or young metropolis? Colorful spice market or multicolored arts scene? Tea house or cocktail bar? Morocco combines the magic of 1001 nights with modern impacts to a truly exciting whole. Not without reason, Marrakech is considered the trend destination of North Africa.

The cultural diversity of Cape Verde Their location between Europe, Africa and America had a strong influence on the Cape Verde Islands: Their landscapes, music and culinary customs combine seeming contrasts in a fascinating way.

CRUISE DATES ON PAGES 92-93, 110, 141-142, 168, 189-191

Stylish, timeless, unique On the SEA CLOUD, each and every corner exudes an attitude to life of times long gone by. Where once the Post-Huttons enjoyed their glamorous family life, the atmosphere today is relaxed and personal. At most 64 guests will soon feel like a family on board: They dine on long tables in the oak-panelled dining room, get talking at the lido bar, or relax in the comfy “blue lagoon”.

Private yacht full of character With the careless confidence of an heiress to millions, Marjorie Merriweather Post generously furnished the SEA CLOUD 90 years ago, turning her into a stylish meeting place for the high society. Even today, the ease with which Marjorie combined luxury, elegance and extravagance accounts for the yacht’s incomparable charm.

SEA CLOUD – CRUISES

St Maarten


Enjoy the sunny side of the Lesser Antilles and the Grenadines with spectacular volcanic beauties and charming island hideaways. The British Virgin Islands – a sailor’s paradise

With more than 60 islands and reefs (of which just 16 are inhabited), the British Virgin Islands are a real dream destination. Fans of sailing from all around the world are drawn to their idyllic and tropically warm waters, and the quaint beach bars bring together everyone from luxury yacht owners to solo sailors. It is so easy to get used to the carefree lifestyle, and with your feet in the sand as you gaze out over green hills and the tranquil sea, you will soon forget about the stresses of everyday life back home. French style on the ÎIes des Saintes

The ÎIes des Saintes give such a welcoming first impression, though the historical Fort Napoléon that towers over the main island is a reminder of less peaceful times. This small town’s promenade is perfect for taking a stroll, and the savoir-vivre of life here unfolds against a backdrop of the glowing pastel colors of the Caribbean. A delight for all the senses: Grenada, the island of spice

There is a reason why nutmeg is immortalised on this country’s national flag. Since colonial times, nutmeg – along with cloves, cinnamon and ginger – has been one of the island’s most important export goods. If the aromatic fragrance of the tropics were to have a name, it would have to be “Grenada”.

Snorkelers’ paradise in the Tobago Cays

For many, life under water is a fascinating world – one that becomes even more magical the closer you get. The Tobago Cays’ Horseshoe Reef is such a place. This horseshoe-shaped coral reef encloses four small islands that glow in rich shades of green. The sea, in contrast, embraces turquoise, emerald and every shade of blue. Stunning islands: St Lucia and Dominica

Although St Lucia is not considered a saint by everyone, the island is certainly the true queen of this idyllic realm. Even from a distance, its twin volcanic peaks, the Pitons, proffer a regal greeting to the approaching SEA CLOUD. And once we have docked, the island welcomes us with its lush tropical scenery. Dominica, unofficially dubbed “Nature Island”, is proud of its unspoilt scenery. One of its national parks is even a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Relaxed luxury on St Barths

Ever since billionaire David Rockefeller discovered the island for himself in the 1960s, St Barthélemy has been a favorite destination for the international jetset. You spend some time on one of the glorious beaches, then stroll along the luxurious promenade, and bring the day to a relaxed close enjoying a sundowner while gazing at the impressive private yachts in Gustavia’s harbor.

The fact that St Barths can only be reached by small aircraft often attracts international celebrities who come to enjoy relaxing days on the tranquil beach or head to the capital of Gustavia. A highlight for sports fans is the Bucket Regatta, a remarkable sailing event which is held in March every year and sees 30 stylish superyachts compete against one another.

Taster Cruise A long weekend to discover Spain from the Gold Coast to the Balearic Islands: Valencia – Barcelona A little break from your daily routine

It is amazing how quickly a sailing cruise can remove you from the everyday hustle and bustle of life! Once the wind swells the sails and the SEA CLOUD sets off into the distant horizon, you step into a whole new, unique world. No matter whether you are keen to enjoy the authentic windjammer atmosphere on board or discover the charming cities onshore, hundreds of new impressions will turn your little break into a wonderful experience. Ibiza, entertaining island between culture and nature

Party spot, hippie retreat, nature’s paradise – it is hardly surprising that UNESCO has singled out Ibiza as “Mixed World Heritage Site”. The Balearic beauty does not fit into any one island category: From the little restaurants in its labyrinthine old quarter to the salt flats populated by flamingos, Ibiza sparkles merrily in a thousand colorful facets.

Menorca – the pristine Balearic island

From the northern rugged mountain region of Tramuntana with its steep coast to gentle rolling hills and vast sandy beaches in the South: Menorca’s natural beauty has many facets. If you prefer the romantic setting of ancient narrow lanes, you will find just what you are looking for in Ciutadella, the island’s former capital. Barcelona and its famous architect

When Antoni Gaudí died in 1926 after the collision with a tram, all of Barcelona grieved. Like no other public figure, the idiosyncratic architect shaped the city with his fairy-tale buildings full of organic shapes and extravagant ideas. Plans are to complete his masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia, by 2026, one hundred years after Gaudí’s death.

A tiny chapel on the rock, a picturesque fortified church and the mighty Château Royal are the first sights to greet you as you approach this small port from the sea. Collioure is a textbook example of a charming fishing village that has always attracted painters and poets thanks to its idyllic coastal location, colorful facades and fascinating light. Little Venice in Languedoc: Sète

To one side the blue of the lagoon, as smooth as glass, and the Mediterranean Sea opposite: Sète has found itself a comfortable spot by the water. With its colorful facades, canals and bridges, the little port is considered the “Venice of Languedoc”. Strolling through the lively “Vieux Port”, the old harbor, will whet your appetite for specialities like fresh oysters or Tielle, an octopus pie.

Portofino, de luxe fishing village

Here, you’d hardly be surprised if Sophia Loren and Grace Kelly strolled past. With its quaint lanes and brilliant houses that compete in shades of dusky pink, rusty red and ochre yellow, Portofino has been drawing the international jetset since the nineteen-fifties. The Piazzetta by the harbor offers the best views of white yachts, colorful fishing boats and elegant boutiques. Menton, sweet town of lemons

Where Nice and Cannes show off, Menton impresses with elegant restraint. The sweet little town on the Eastern Côte d’Azur is a lot less touristy than its flashy neighbors, enchanting visitors with Italian flair and pastelcolored facades in its old town. As the legendary town of lemons, Menton is living proof of how wonderfully sour “la dolce vita” can be.

Emerald-green coasts, elegant ports and Mediterranean flair between Corsica and the Amalfi Coast: Rome (Civitavecchia) – Naples The natural harbor of Bonifacio

Sailing into Bonifacio is quite simply a spectacular experience – a steep, shimmering white chalk cliff, a small town that appears to be floating magnificently on the plateau and a fjord-like bay which gives way to an elegant marina. Those who wish may explore the area’s medieval upper town or take a stroll along the promenade. The beautiful Costa Smeralda

The emerald coast certainly lives up to its name; its waters sparkle and shimmer like a jewel with tones of green, blue and turquoise, “framed” by snow-white rock faces and beaches. This coastal area first came to prominence through its development by Aga Khan, who has been protecting the coast from architectural eyesores since the 1960s whilst preserving the area’s natural beauty and creating stylish, picturesque holiday resorts. Insider tip for yacht lovers: Propriano

Where once only fishing boats bobbed about, today sleek yachts are also moored: Propriano has turned from a small coastal village into an insider’s tip for luxury yachtsmen. A pretty promenade runs along the harbor and attracts visitors with numerous cafés and fish restaurants. Not far away is the mysterious Sartène: With its fortress-like granite houses, the “most Corsican of all Corsican towns” exudes a medieval flair. The scenic Amalfi Coast

Violet bougainvillea in front of pastel pink facades; houses clinging to the cliffs like swallows’ nests; a grand open staircase looking out onto the glistening turquoise sea – Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi sometimes seem too good to be true. But the colorful, romantic fishing villages are real. In 1997, the UNESCO declared the Amalfi Coast a World Heritage Site.

In the sea of dreamlike islands, one stands out in particular: With its bright red beaches, brilliant white tufa, emerald green water and cheerful fishing boats, Milos is the island of colors. In 1820, the statue of Venus was discovered here; today it is on display in the Louvre. Insider tip in the Aegean Sea: Astypalea

Seen from above, Astypalea looks just like a butterfly that has landed on the blue Aegean waters. The little island jewel has kept its authentic charm to this day: Among innumerable beaches, the crystal clear water, bright white lanes and red windmill roofs, visitors will soon become one with the relaxed Greek island routine. Amorgos: the magic of the rock monastery

At 300 meters (984 ft) above the deep blue sea, the monks are truly close to heaven. The white monastery of Panagia Hozovitissa is so tall and narrow, it almost seems to grow out of the steep cliffs. A labyrinth of corridors connects its eight floors; and every now and then, through a rock window, you catch a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea.

Far away from mass tourism, a small, relaxed island idyll lies in the turquoise waters, with beautiful patrician houses and the stylish villas of shipowners. But not only the houses are worth a visit, here the streets are as well. They are car-free and surprise again and again with colorful floor mosaics. Many a visitor enjoys the fun of finding the most beautiful one. Butrint: a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Visible from the island of Corfu, the ruined city of Butrint lies protected on a peninsula. Butrint is a kaleidoscope of Mediterranean history; as one of the trade centres of the ancient world, the city attracted numerous conquerors and travelers throughout the millennia. Excavations have unearthed theaters, temples and baths from the Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman periods. Consequently in 1992 UNESCO declared Butrint a World Heritage Site. The Florence of the South: Lecce

Lecce, situated on the heel of the Italian boot in the ruggedly romantic Apulia region, is considered one of the most beautiful towns in southern Italy. Thanks to a special form of tuff stone, the town evolved into a splendid baroque city with its richly decorated facades gleaming in white and gold. In Otranto there is no better way to see out the day than with a stroll through the lively old town. A lecturer accompanies the trip

No other farewell is as romantic and melancholic as the route taken by the SEA CLOUD as it leaves the Floating City. Our tall ship slowly sails past all of Venice’s famous buildings and offers a panoramic view of the magnificent St Mark’s Square, the Campanile, the Bridge of Sighs and the Doge’s Palace. The Krka waterfalls

Mother Nature has carved out an extraordinary and wildly romantic water scene in the Krka National Park: Pools of foam emerge as the emerald green waters of the Krka River rush over the cliff edges of the park’s eight waterfalls. Paved hiking trails take you through this stunning wood and park landscape. Zadar: more than 2,000 years of history

With its modern promenade, which replaced the monotonous concrete harbor wall, Zadar has been given a new lease of life. The city’s pride and joy is the unique sea organ from which the waves coax deep soft sounds. On its steps, you can relax after strolling through the fortified old town with the monumental Church of St Donatus, the square of five wells and four medival gates. Ravenna – the city of mosaics

Ravenna is a real treasure chest, bursting with magnificent mosaics and well-preserved monuments, including eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Basilica of San Vitale is one such example.

Stroll under the old plane trees of the famous Cours Mirabeau for a taste of this Provençal capital’s history; its main boulevard is lined with small bistros and antique shops, elegant residences, fountains and boutiques. The small port town of Collioure

When Antoni Gaudí died in 1926 after the collision with a tram, all of Barcelona grieved. Like no other public figure, the idiosyncratic architect shaped the city with his fairy-tale buildings full of organic shapes and extravagant ideas. Plans are to complete his masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia, by 2026, one hundred years after Gaudí’s death. Menorca – the pristine Balearic island

From the northern rugged mountain region of Tramuntana with its steep coast to gentle rolling hills and vast sandy beaches in the South: Menorca’s natural beauty has many facets. If you prefer the romantic setting of ancient narrow lanes, you will find just what you are looking for in Ciutadella, the island’s former capital.

Many bygone eras have left their mark on Valencia, but this historical legacy is juxtaposed with an impressive mixture of magnificent modern buildings. It is this vast spectrum that gives the city its unique appeal. The offbeat design of the opera house appears futuristic, with the building situated in an expansive museum and park district that stretches from the city center all the way to the coast. A number of beautiful beaches are also located within the city. Málaga – city of culture

Much more than just “Costa” and “Sol”: As the second largest city in Andalusia, in recent years Málaga has evolved into a true destination of culture. Next to classic sites like the cathedral and the Moorish Alcazaba, Picasso’s birthplace entices with suprisingly varied museums that focus on topics from archaeology and modern art to automobile design, wine, and glass. The gentle pace of life in Cádiz

History comes alive in the city of Cádiz. One of Europe’s oldest cities, this charming harbor town boasts a beautiful cathedral and baroque buildings, a tranquil old town and defiant watch towers. The town center, with its delightful tapas bars, can be easily explored on foot from the harbor. And there is no shortage of good wine, as Jerez de la Frontera, with its sherry and wine cellars, is close by.

Marrakech, the magical metropolis

While the medina with its jugglers and snake charmers breathes oriental confusion, hip design hotels, clubs and a lively art scene create inspiring contrasts – in Marrakech, magic and modernity go hand in hand. This colorful cultural mix makes the old royal city an exciting trend metropolis. Lanzarote and its famous architect

With his vision of a harmonious link between mankind and nature, César Manrique transformed Lanzarote into a work of art. This surrealist painter, architect, sculptor, designer and conservationist created colorful wind chimes and wall mosaics, turned lava caves into homes and tirelessly fought to ensure the preservation of the natural and cultural identity of his island of birth.

Less time? Then you can also book the trip without the pre-cruise program in Marrakech, from Oct 30 to Nov 05, 2022 from Casablanca to Las Palmas (SC-2236).

SEA CLOUD – CRUISES

Casablanca Madeira


On a course to sun-drenched natural paradises, idyllic mountain villages and black lava landscapes. Lively variety on the Canary Islands

So close to the stars and the elements

Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Tenerife, El Hierro, La Palma, La Gomera and Gran Canaria – on this journey we will stop at all seven Canary Islands. Walking along the promenades or through narrow alleyways, you are sure to discover the multifaceted character of these islands: from cosmopolitan style in Las Palmas to quiet introspection in rustic San Sebastián.

On the Canary Islands you can marvel at the clearest starry sky in Europe. This is why the Canary Islands are home to two internationally renowned observatories: the "Roque de los Muchanos" in La Palma and the "Observatorio del Teide" on Tenerife. Sit back and discover the infinite expanse of space during an evening of stargazing with our officers.

Sailing with the trade winds around the Canary Islands

With his vision of a harmonious link between mankind and nature, César Manrique transformed Lanzarote into a work of art. This surrealist painter, architect, sculptor and conservationist created colorful wind chimes and wall mosaics, turned lava caves into homes and tirelessly fought to ensure the preservation of the natural and cultural identity of the island where he was born.

Beautiful days of sailing are guaranteed, when the Azores high sends steady north-easterly trade winds to the Canaries. At comfortable four to five Beaufort and agreeable temperatures of around 20°C/68°F, the windjammer explores two weeks long the sunny sides of the Canary island worlds. Paradise for whales and dolphins

Ideal conditions and mild temperatures make the Canary Islands not only an attractive residence for people, but also a special habitat for whales and dolphins. In spring, some 29 different species of marine mammals cavort off Tenerife and La Gomera. Go on an exciting whale watching tour, accompanied by local experts. Gran Canaria – the miniature continent

With its picturesque old town and one of the best city beaches in Europe, the island’s capital Las Palmas is a lively place to visit. In contrast, the south entices with a beautiful natural area of unique sand dune formations. For more than 150 years, the island has been offering new strength and vitality to those seeking relaxation. The center around the extinct volcano Pico de las Nieves surprises with a completely different atmosphere. Rising clouds, wafting mist, lush valleys, deep canyons and mountain villages still remind of its origins. 94

Lanzarote and its famous architect

Magic forest and moonscape: two famous national parks

These two UNESCO World Natural Heritage Sites could hardly be more different: While the evergreen cloud forest Garajonay at the heart of La Gomera offers fascinating scenery made up of rivers, waterfalls and dense moss, Tenerife’s Las Cañadas del Teide National Park is extremely dry. With tall lava tongues and bizarre rock formations, its volcanic landscape looks almost like the surface of the moon. El Hierro – the most pristine of the Canary Islands

Little El Hierro with its tranquil villages is the perfect island to unwind. Far from the bustle of the Canaries, walkers and hikers find here their perfect natural paradise. From steep cliffs to green highlands, from lava deserts to mystical cloud forests, this small volcanic island of just 278 square kilometers (107 square miles) features the most diverse natural landscapes and temperate zones.

Natural elemental force: Las Cañadas del Teide

It all began with a huge mountain of fire. 15 million years ago, the volcano pushed its way out of the Atlantic Ocean, spewing lava and ash and leaving an imposing sunken caldera in the heart of Tenerife. Today, the Cañadas del Teide are a national park crowned by Spain’s highest mountain, Pico del Teide. Under a usually cloudless sky, the steep crater walls and bizarre colored stone formations shine in an almost unearthly light.

An authentic sailing experience

SAILING

Crossing the Atlantic on a traditional tall ship is an experience that leaves a lasting impression. For 17 days your exact course is determined only by the elements. When the crew sets the sails at dizzying heights, the wind fills the canvas and the ropes stretch and creak; and you will experience a tangible sense of freedom. Following in Columbus’ footsteps

SAILING

What would have been going through Columbus’ mind as he set sail in 1492? It is virtually impossible to sail across the Atlantic in the discoverer’s footsteps without constantly considering his thoughts and ideas. Columbus had not yet discovered the trade winds, which provide ideal sailing conditions in the westerly direction during the winter months, but nowadays we know that they guarantee fantastic sailing for the SEA CLOUD on her way to the Caribbean.

SAILING

Relax and enjoy

SAILING

Great adventures do not always mean great effort. For 17 days we sail a westward course across the Atlantic, always heading towards a magnificent sunset. It will not be long before you sit back and relax; surrounded by vast horizons and looked after by an attentive crew, you will leave your every-day stress behind in no time at all. A lecturer accompanies the trip

Our lecturer will come thoroughly prepared for the two weeks at sea, ready to give you fascinating insights into his/her area of expertise as part of varied and entertaining talks.

Special Offer Goodbye winter – relaxed Holiday season on the sunny side of the Lesser Antilles: St Maarten – St Maarten French flair on the Îles des Saintes

Roughly 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) off Guadeloupe, the Îles des Saintes rise green from the sea. Columbus, who set foot on them on All Saints’ Day in 1493, gave the “holy islands” their name. Terre-de-Haut is the most charming of the eight isles: Beneath the historical Fort Napoléon, you can take a relaxed stroll through the little town and enjoy the French flair of its bars, cafés and boutiques. Dominica, the island of lush nature

With a gentle smile, the Sisserou Parrot on Dominica’s flag invites visitors to explore the island. It is well worth it: Like a green carpet, lush rainforests cover the second highest Antilles island and plunge picturesquely over red rocks into the sea in the north. Not far from the fishing village of Calibishie, you can literally let Dominica’s beauty melt in your mouth – during a visit to a chocolate factory. One island, two cultures: St Maarten

Cute gabled houses or charm à la Saint Tropez? Why not enjoy both! On Sint Maarten/Saint-Martin, the DutchFrench border runs right across the hilly green island, dividing it culturally into two halves. Where Marigot and Terres-Basses cultivate elegant savoir-vivre, Dutch serenity is the order of the day in the lively, colorful capital of Philipsburg.

St Maarten St Barthélemy


Following in the footsteps of Caribbean pirates to hidden coves, small harbor towns and magnificent nature above and below the sea. British Virgin Islands: Treasure islands in a sailor’s paradise

Sailing between the more than 60 white-sanded British Virgin Islands means following the routes of famous adventurers. Did pirates once bathe on the paradise beaches of Virgin Gorda and Norman Island, the “real” treasure island? In any case, Jost van Dyke, today known for its laid-back pubs with live music, was named after a privateer – just like the Sir Francis Drake Channel. French style on the ÎIes des Saintes

This small archipelago, which earned its place in history as the Gibraltar of the Caribbean, has been a great source of contention over the years. It finally became French territory in 1816. Nowadays, the only remnant of these troubled times is an old fort. Life here is peaceful and spiced with a touch of savoir-vivre. Take a stroll through the small town on the island of Terre-de-Haut with its shops and cafés. St Lucia: Tropical splendor beneath the twin volcanoes

For many miles, only blue water can be seen, when suddenly the green twin volcanoes rise out of the sea – the famous Pitons of St Lucia. The perfect anchorage is hidden at their feet: Soufrière with its Caribbean vibes, charming bays for snorkeling and swimming, and the lushly blooming botanical garden all are in close proximity. More than just spices: Grenada

A total of three mighty forts crowns the hills around St George’s, all watching over the picturesque colonial town. With its cannons pointing inland, Fort Frederick, the highest of the three, is considered Grenada’s most spectacular vantage point, together with the rainforest mountain of Morne Gazo. From here you have a panoramic view over the green spice island to the fine sandy Grand Anse Beach. 100

Snorkelers’ paradise in the Tobago Cays

For many, life under water is a fascinating world – one that becomes even more magical the closer you get. The Tobago Cays’ Horseshoe Reef is such a place. This horseshoe-shaped coral reef encloses four small islands that glow in rich shades of green. The sea, in contrast, embraces turquoise, emerald and every shade of blue. Hidden Caribbean paradise: Bequia

It might be better not to be too enthusiastic about Bequia, for it to remain such a charming insider’s tip. Unimpressed by trends and hustle and bustle, the Grenadine island has retained its natural Caribbean flair. Here, the mind immediately switches to barefoot mode: With cold beer and reggae, locals and sailors sit together in small beach bars and live easily into the day. The jetset island of St Barths

Although many like to call it “St Barths” for short, the island’s official name is St Barthélemy. Having seen numerous owners, the isle was finally bought by France in 1877 and is now firmly in the hands of the jetset. When banker David Rockefeller first bought property here in 1957, the island’s future was sealed.

En route to the Cape Verde Islands discovering their fascinating natureand culturescapes: Las Palmas – Santiago El Hierro – the most pristine of the Canary Islands

Little El Hierro with its tranquil villages is the perfect island to unwind. Far from the bustle of the Canaries, walkers and hikers find here their perfect natural paradise. From steep cliffs to green highlands, from lava deserts to mystical cloud forests, this small volcanic island of just 278 square kilometers (107 square miles) features the most diverse natural landscapes and temperate zones. The rich cultural mix of Cape Verde

Not just geographically, Cape Verde is situated between Africa, the Caribbean and Europe. The Portuguese colony was a hub of the slave trade and exile for the religiously persecuted. Since 1461, customs, musical traditions and genes have amalgamated to the entirely new Creole culture. In 1975, the República Cabo Verde proudly declared its independence. Santo Antão, the island of contrast

The second largest island of Cape Verde enchants with its spectacular natural diversity. While the volcanic craters in the barren south are reminiscent of moonscapes, rocky mountainous landscapes alternate with green and fertile valleys in the north. Besides pineapples, mango trees and coconut palms, sugar cane is also grown here – and distilled into the national schnaps Grogue.

Cape Verde on board a windjammer: Santiago – Barbados

What would have been going through Columbus’ mind as he set sail in 1492? It is virtually impossible to sail across the Atlantic in the discoverer’s footsteps without constantly considering his thoughts and ideas. Columbus had not yet discovered the trade winds, which provide ideal sailing conditions in the westerly direction during the winter months, but nowadays we know that they guarantee fantastic sailing for the SEA CLOUD II on its way to the Caribbean. Relax and enjoy

Great adventures do not always mean great effort. For 15 days we sail a westward course across the Atlantic, always heading towards a magnificent sunset. It will not be long before you sit back and relax; surrounded by vast horizons and looked after by an attentive crew, you will leave your everyday stress behind in no time at all. A lecturer accompanies the trip

Our lecturer will come thoroughly prepared for the Atlantic crossing, ready to give you fascinating insights into his/her area of expertise as part of varied and entertaining talks.

Crossing the Atlantic on a traditional tall ship is an experience that leaves a lasting impression. For 15 days your exact course is determined only by the elements. When the crew sets the sails at dizzying heights, the wind fills the canvas and the ropes stretch and creak, you will experience a tangible sense of freedom.

Grenada

Special Offer Enjoy a relaxing break before the festive season in the sunny dream sailing area of the Lesser Antilles and Grenadines: Barbados – Barbados A delight for all the senses: Grenada, the island of spice

There is a reason why nutmeg is immortalised on this country’s national flag. Since colonial times, nutmeg – along with cloves, cinnamon and ginger – has been one of the island’s most important export goods. If the aromatic fragrance of the tropics were to have a name, it would have to be “Grenada”. Snorkelers’ paradise in the Tobago Cays

For many, life under water is a fascinating world – one that becomes even more magical the closer you get. The Tobago Cays’ Horseshoe Reef is such a place. This horseshoe-shaped coral reef encloses four small islands that glow in rich shades of green. The sea, in contrast, embraces turquoise, emerald and every shade of blue. French flair on the Îles des Saintes

Roughly 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) off Guadeloupe, the Îles des Saintes rise green from the sea. Columbus, who set foot on them on All Saints’ Day in 1493, gave the “holy islands” their name. Terre-de-Haut is the most charming of the eight isles: Beneath the historical Fort Napoléon, you can take a relaxed stroll through the little town and enjoy the French flair of its bars, cafés and boutiques. The magnificent Pitons of St Lucia

Gros and Petit Piton, the two famous volcanic plugs that tower over St Lucia, could have come straight out of a tropical storybook. They are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offer a spectacular panorama as the SEA CLOUD II sails closely alongside their slopes.

Discover a new Caribbean island paradise each day with the SEA CLOUD II-Advent calendar: Barbados – Barbados Idyllic sailing along the trade winds

In winter and spring the Caribbean trade winds offer perfect speeds and consistency and deliver wonderful air and water temperatures. The many hours spent out at sea are a real joy for the tall ship and a pleasure for all those who want to experience the freedom under full sails – in a magnificent sailing area. Sailing together with SEA CLOUD

On December 17, all eyes will be on the horizon: when will the four masts of the legendary SEA CLOUD will emerge from the blue sea? Our two windjammers have arranged to sail together in the Caribbean Sea twice on this journey. When both ships drift side by side under full sail, it is an impressive and unforgettable experience – great photo opportunities included. Stunning islands: St Lucia and Dominica

Although St Lucia is not considered a saint by everyone, the island is certainly the true queen of this idyllic realm. Even from a distance, its twin volcanic peaks, the Pitons, proffer a regal greeting to the approaching SEA CLOUD II. And once we have docked, the island welcomes us with its lush tropical scenery. Dominica, unofficially dubbed “Nature Island”, is proud of its unspoilt scenery. One of its national parks is even a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A lecturer accompanies the trip

SEA CLOUD II – CRUISES

Îles des Saintes


Looking forward to the New Year with your feet in the sand and a cocktail in your hand in the most relaxed places in the world. More than just spices: Grenada

The jetset island of St Barths

A total of three mighty forts crowns the hills around St George’s, all watching over the picturesque colonial town. With its cannons pointing inland, Fort Frederick, the highest of the three, is considered Grenada’s most spectacular vantage point, together with the rainforest mountain of Morne Gazo. From here you have a panoramic view over the green spice island to the fine sandy Grand Anse Beach.

Although many like to call it “St Barths” for short, the island’s official name is St Barthélemy. Having seen numerous owners, the isle was finally bought by France in 1877 and is now firmly in the hands of the jetset. When banker David Rockefeller first bought property here in 1957, the island’s future was sealed. Elegant Gustavia entices with classy goods and glamour hidden away behind restored facades, and the harbor hosts luxury yachts of famous owners.

Colorful Caribbean underwater world

British Virgin Islands: Treasure islands in a sailor’s paradise

Eye to eye with parrotfishes, ocean turtles and damselfishes – the Tobago Cays and St Lucia are considered the best diving and snorkeling haunts in the Caribbean. The crystal-clear water with tropical temperatures offers metres deep views and invites to excursions through fascinating, colorful underwater worlds full of craggy coral riffs. Hidden Caribbean paradise: Bequia

It might be better not to be too enthusiastic about Bequia, for it to remain such a charming insider's tip. Unimpressed by trends and hustle and bustle, the Grenadine island has retained its natural Caribbean flair. Here, the mind immediately switches to barefoot mode: with cold beer and reggae, locals and sailors sit together in small beach bars and live easily into the day. Sailing together with SEA CLOUD

On December 27, all eyes will be on the horizon: when will the four masts of the legendary SEA CLOUD will emerge from the blue sea? Our two windjammers are cruising in Caribbean waters and have arranged to sail together again at the end of the year. This is always an impressive and unforgettable experience.

114

With more than 60 islands and reefs (of which only 16 are inhabited), the British Virgin Islands are a real dream destination. Fans of sailing from all around the world are drawn to their idyllic and tropically warm waters, and the quaint beach bars bring together everyone from luxury yacht owners to solo sailors. It is so easy to get used to the carefree lifestyle, and with your feet in the sand as you gaze out over green hills and the tranquil sea, you will soon forget about the stresses of everyday life back home French flair on the Îles des Saintes

Roughly 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) off Guadeloupe, the Îles des Saintes rise green from the sea. Columbus, who set foot on them on All Saints’ Day in 1493, gave the “holy islands” their name. Terre-de-Haut is the most charming of the eight isles: Beneath the historical Fort Napoléon, you can take a relaxed stroll through the little town and enjoy the French flair of its bars, cafés and boutiques.

Cute gabled houses or charm à la Saint Tropez? Why not enjoy both! On Sint Maarten/Saint-Martin, the DutchFrench border runs right across the hilly green island, dividing it culturally into two halves. Where Marigot and Terres-Basses cultivate elegant savoir-vivre, Dutch serenity is the order of the day in the lively, colorful capital of Philipsburg. Snorkelers’ paradise in the Tobago Cays

For many, life under water is a fascinating world – one that becomes even more magical the closer you get. The Tobago Cays’ Horseshoe Reef is such a place. This horseshoe-shaped coral reef encloses four small islands that glow in rich shades of green. The sea, in contrast, embraces turquoise, emerald and every shade of blue. Relaxed luxury on St Barths

Ever since billionaire David Rockefeller discovered the island for himself in the 1960s, St Barthélemy has been a favorite destination for the international jetset. You spend some time on one of the glorious beaches, then stroll along the luxurious promenade, and bring the day to a relaxed close enjoying a sundowner while gazing at the impressive private yachts in Gustavia’s harbor.

The perfect anchorage is hidden at their feet: Soufrière with its Caribbean vibes, charming bays for snorkeling and swimming, and the lushly blooming botanical garden all are in close proximity. “The Baths” – imposing granite formations

It is sometimes easy to think that this is one of nature’s fairy tales: Once upon a time, there was a giant who played with large stone marbles. His favorite playground was in Virgin Gorda, a place now called “The Baths” – a gigantic rock labyrinth made out of circular-shaped granite boulders. The magical Maravillas caves

The Spanish name for this natural structure – Cuevas de Maravillas – means “Cave of Wonders”, and for good reason: Visitors to this incredible underground world cannot help but be amazed. With stunning lighting and echoes of cathedral architecture, the ceilings are lined with huge stalactites, while stalagmites protrude from the ground like Gothic pinnacles, and pre-Columbian Taino Indian ritual murals adorn the walls.

It is sometimes easy to think that this is one of nature’s fairy tales: Once upon a time, there was a giant who played with large stone marbles. His favorite playground was in Virgin Gorda, a place now called “The Baths” – a gigantic rock labyrinth made out of circular-shaped granite boulders. French flair on the Îles des Saintes

This small archipelago, which earned its place in history as the Gibraltar of the Caribbean, has been a great source of contention over the years. It finally became French territory in 1816. Nowadays, the only remnant of these troubled times is an old fort. Life here is peaceful, as relaxed as the rest of the Caribbean, and spiced with a touch of savoirvivre. Take a stroll through the small town on the island of Terre-de-Haut and discover all its little shops, before taking a break in one of the splendid restaurants or cafés. Regatta on the jetset island of St Barths

The fact that St Barths can only be reached by small aircraft often attracts international celebrities who come to enjoy relaxing days on the tranquil beach or head to the capital of Gustavia. A highlight for sports fans is the Bucket Regatta, a remarkable sailing event which is held in March every year and sees 30 stylish superyachts compete against one another.

Although St Lucia is not considered a saint by everyone, the island is certainly the true queen of this idyllic realm. Even from a distance, its twin volcanic peaks, the Pitons, proffer a regal greeting to the approaching SEA CLOUD II. And once we have docked, the island welcomes us with its lush tropical scenery. Dominica, unofficially dubbed “Nature Island”, is proud of its unspoilt scenery. One of its national parks is even a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Taster Cruise A long weekend to experience Spanish temperament and breathe in the scent of spring: Málaga – Valencia A little break from your daily routine

It is amazing how quickly a sailing cruise can remove you from the everyday hustle and bustle of life! Once the wind swells the sails and the SEA CLOUD II sets off into the distant horizon, you step into a whole new, unique world. No matter whether you are keen to enjoy the authentic windjammer atmosphere on board or prefer to discover the charming cities onshore, hundreds of new impressions will turn your little break into a wonderful experience. Ancient, modern and varied: Cartagena

The silver mines, where once 40,000 people worked, made Cartagena an important trading port thousands of years ago. Today, the sunny city shines with diversity: Here the rich architectural heritage with Roman, Moorish and Art Nouveau elements, there the quaint fishing village flair against a modern beach skyline. In the surrounding countryside, while listening to flamenco music on a finca with racy horses, you can feel the proximity to Andalusia.

A fascinating mix in Valencia

Many bygone eras have left their mark on Valencia, but this historical legacy is juxtaposed with an impressive mixture of magnificent modern buildings.

Noble racehorses, fascinating cultural cities and dramatic nature – spring days between Andalusia and the Côte d’Azur: Málaga – Nice A fascinating mix in Valencia

Many bygone eras have left their mark on Valencia, but this historical legacy is juxtaposed with an impressive mixture of magnificent modern buildings. It is this vast spectrum that gives the city its unique appeal. The offbeat design of the opera house appears futuristic, with the building situated in an expansive museum and park district that stretches from the city centre all the way to the coast. Barcelona and its famous architect

When Antoni Gaudí died in 1926 after the collision with a tram, all of Barcelona grieved. Like no other public figure, the idiosyncratic architect shaped the city with his fairytale buildings full of organic shapes and extravagant ideas. Plans are to complete his masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia, by 2026, one hundred years after Gaudí’s death. Living Provencal style in Aix

Its successful blend of baroque elegance and a lively student scene is one of the reasons why Aix-enProvence ranks amongst France’s top five of the most popular places to live. Stroll under the old plane trees of the famous Cours Mirabeau for a taste of this Provençal capital’s history; its main boulevard is lined with small bistros and antique shops, elegant residences, fountains and boutiques.

Spring awakening between Spanish heritage and French lifestyle: Valencia – Nice Tarragona: a walk into the ancient world

In Tarragona, not only the heart of history lovers beat faster: With its shady old town alleys, sunny squares and great sea views, the old port city immediately captivates its visitors. A stroll through the city takes you straight back to ancient times. Here, the Romans once built a provincial forum, circus and amphitheater (now a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and then treated themselves to one of Catalonia’s fine wines. Gaudeamus igitur! Barcelona and its famous architect

When Antoni Gaudí died in 1926 after the collision with a tram, all of Barcelona grieved. Like no other public figure, the idiosyncratic architect shaped the city with his fairy-tale buildings full of organic shapes and extravagant ideas. Plans are to complete his masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia, by 2026, one hundred years after Gaudí’s death. The fjords of Provence: the Calanques

Seen from above, the small boats almost seem to float between the steep rock faces – the turquoise sea is that clear. The magical nature of the Calanques National Park is best explored from the water. More than 20 fjord-like bays cut into the wildly romantic coastline between Marseille and Cassis here, forming small sandy beaches hidden between powder-white cliffs.

Elba, the varied island beauty

When the morning sun shines its warm light first on the fortifications and then on the harbor, Portoferraio springs to life. Elba’s picturesque principal town is the perfect starting point to explore the island off the Tuscan coast. Whether you follow in Napoleon’s footsteps, visit the vineyards or decide to hide away in idyllic coves – Elba offers quite an astonishing diversity. Portofino, de luxe fishing village

Here, you’d hardly be surprised if Sophia Loren and Grace Kelly strolled past. With its quaint lanes and brilliant houses that compete in shades of dusky pink, rusty red and ochre yellow, Portofino has been drawing the international jetset since the nineteen-fifties. The Piazzetta by the harbor offers the best views of white yachts, colorful fishing boats and elegant boutiques.

Ever since the German painter August Kopisch discovered the Blue Grotto 190 years ago, Capri has been the epitome of Italian nostalgia. When the red sun is swallowed by the sea in the evenings and the day-trippers have left, the island exudes its true sentimental charm. Now, the little lanes and boutiques are all yours, and you can end your evening with a Limoncello on the Piazzetta. UNESCO World Heritage Site Paestum

The mighty columns of Poseidon’s temple still soar into the blue Campanian sky much like they did 2,500 years ago. Together with the basilica and the Temple of Athena, they form the Doric heart of Paestum. Until its rediscovery in 1750, this Greek and later Roman colony had been hidden in the marsh and today is among the best preserved temple sites in Europe.

The Ionic Sea glistens below; Mount Etna greets on the horizon; and on the rock plateau of Monte Tauro, the tiers of the antique “Teatro Greco” from the 2nd century BC rise into the sky – at this spectacular view, even Goethe was at a loss for words. Taormina did not just enchant the German poet; other famous visitors like Oscar Wilde and Liz Taylor also fell for the unique charme of this tiny, labyrinthine mountain town in northeastern Sicily.

The largest of the Mediterranean islands is a fabulously diverse microcosm in its own right – with rich cultural history dating back 3,000 years, with different monuments marking each era, with Europe’s highest and most active volcano, Mount Etna, and with towns and villages featuring a character and flair all of their own. Melting pot of cultures: Palermo

Massive northern walls, graceful oriental pointed arches, curved baroque facades – Palermo is absolutely bursting with architectural splendor. More than a thousand years ago, the city was already a thriving cultural metropolis whose cosmopolitan rulers blended Norman, Arabic and Byzantine influences. The small volcanic island of Lipari

Lipari is part of the Aeolian Islands, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In some places, the island’s volcanic rock formations seem to resemble sculptures, and its cultural history stretches back 7,000 years. The tiny harbors are the place to come to if you want to absorb the infectious southern Italian lifestyle.

Syracuse: UNESCO World Heritage Site

Cicero once described Syracuse as “the greatest and most beautiful of the Greek cities”. Up to a million people – three times the population of mighty Athens – are claimed to have lived there in antiquity. This city on the small island of Ortigia was later conquered first by the Romans, then by Arabs, Byzantines and Normans. They have left behind a unique architectural heritage: UNESCO declared Syracuse a World Heritage Site in 2005 due to its archaeological importance.

Picturesque islands, quaint alleyways, mythical ruins – heading for the most beautiful places in the Aegean Sea: Athens (Piraeus) – Istanbul Pure Greece – the island world of the Aegean Sea

Rebetiko sounds drift out of a taverna; rugged cliffs line fine sandy bathing bays; chalky white chapels shine under a deep blue sky – does this picture-book Greece really exist? On a course through the fabulous Greek islands of the Aegean Sea, natural harbors with colorful fishing boats, narrow alleys and charming little squares are waiting to be discovered during the shore excursions. Spetses: exclusive, noble, traditional

Far away from mass tourism, a small, relaxed island idyll lies in the turquoise waters, with beautiful patrician houses and the stylish villas of shipowners. But not only the houses are worth a visit, here the streets are as well. They are car-free and surprise again and again with colorful floor mosaics. Many a visitor enjoys the fun of finding the most beautiful one. Ancient Mycenae

Mycenae is a town steeped in history and legend. When Heinrich Schliemann began excavating an acropolis site here in 1876, he discovered 13 kilos of golden treasure, including Agamemnon’s alleged death mask. The monumental Lion Gate, the Cyclopean masonry and the Treasury of Atreus are what make Mycenae one of the most important archaeological sites in modern-day Greece.

Sailing with the wind of history to cultural sites and idyllic ports of the Aegean Sea: Istanbul – Athens (Piraeus) Philippi: an ancient city

A walk through Philippi is a walk through the ages. Originally a Thracian settlement, the city was conquered around 355 BC by Philip of Macedon, the father of Alexander the Great, before it fell under Roman rule roughly 200 years later. It was here in around 50 AD that the Apostle Paul set up the first Christian congregation in Europe. The site’s well-maintained amphitheater still hosts plenty of performances and events. The charming capital of the Cyclades

Ermoupolis, capital of the island of Syros and the entire Cyclades, was built on two hills and is a unique architectural accomplishment. A great number of monumental neo-classical buildings create the impression of a sophisticated city. As you ascend, the opulence and vastness give way to a maze of narrow passages, creating a more medieval atmosphere. And no matter where you are in this city, the cafés and taverns are filled with Greeks alone, and tourists are nowhere to be seen. A lecturer accompanies the trip

From the Peloponnese to the Floating City – Greek myths and a Mediterranean cultural mix: Athens (Piraeus) – Venice Spetses: exclusive, noble, traditional

Far away from mass tourism, a small, relaxed island idyll lies in the turquoise waters, with beautiful patrician houses and the stylish villas of shipowners. But not only the houses are worth a visit, here the streets are as well. They are car-free and surprise again and again with colorful floor mosaics. Many visitors enjoy the fun of finding the most beautiful one. Butrint: a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Visible from the island of Corfu, the ruined city of Butrint lies protected on a peninsula. Butrint is a kaleidoscope of Mediterranean history; as one of the trade centers of the ancient world, the city attracted numerous conquerors and travelers throughout the millennia. Excavations have unearthed theaters, temples and baths from the Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman periods. Consequently in 1992 UNESCO declared Butrint a World Heritage Site. The Florence of the South: Lecce

Lecce, situated on the heel of the Italian boot in the ruggedly romantic Apulia region, is considered one of the most beautiful towns in southern Italy. Thanks to a special form of tuff stone, the town evolved into a splendid baroque city with its richly decorated facades gleaming in white and gold. In Otranto there is no better way to see out the day than with a stroll through the lively old town. A lecturer accompanies the trip

Follow the sea route of Venetian merchants and discover the magnificent cultural cities of the Adriatic Sea: Venice – Venice Ravenna – the city of mosaics

Ravenna is a real treasure chest, bursting with magnificent mosaics and well-preserved monuments, including eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Basilica of San Vitale is one such example. Although unremarkable from the outside, its mesmerising interior is covered from floor to ceiling in thousands of glistening tiles. Korcula, birthplace of Marco Polo

Just like his phantastic journey to China, Marco Polo’s roots are shrouded in legend. The people of Korcula, however, are convinced: The famous discoverer was born on this charming island. Wandering through the medieval old town, you will find Marco Polo’s birthplace next to the Cathedral of St Mark. Split – the Adriatic metropolis

Split was originally established as a retirement home for the Roman Emperor Diocletian. However, his palace, which took only ten years to build, soon encompassed two main roads, a number of villas, military and civilian constructions and several sacred buildings. This historical complex covers an area of roughly 30,000 square meters (323,000 square feet) and now stands at the center of the beautiful old town. It undoubtedly deserves its title as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. An ancient beauty: Pula

Wherever you look, you will find traces of the past in Pula’s picturesque alleys. Be it the temple of Augustus, the Euphrasius Basilica, the Golden Gate or what is considered the most beautiful amphitheater in the world. Legend has it that this was a gift from Emperor Augustus to his mistress who was born in Pula.

Even in ancient times, Istrian olives were famed for their special flavor. Nowadays, the region’s multi-award winning olive oil is prized by connoisseurs. Also much sought after among gourmets is the “white gold”, otherwise known as the white truffle. On a culinary excursion you will experience many of the region’s specialities. Zadar: more than 2,000 years of history

With its modern promenade, which replaced the monotonous concrete harbor wall, Zadar has been given a new lease of life. The city’s pride and joy is the unique sea organ from which the waves coax deep soft sounds. On its steps, you can relax after strolling through the fortified old town with the monumental Church of St Donatus, the square of five wells and four medival gates.

From the rich opera tradition of Italy to the great French chansons to the manifold melodies of Catalonia and Andalusia – between Genoa and Valencia, the SEA CLOUD II sails through the most diverse musical waters. Whether ashore or on board: Variety sets the tone on this voyage, and so music lovers can look forward to a virtuoso program. Three countries, eight ports, 1000 facets

A stroll through an exotic garden on Wednesday, a boat trip to striking rocky fjords on Friday, an oyster on the Canal Royal on Saturday, and on to admire Miró’s art and then go shopping on Monday – at home, you can only dream of a week like this. Along the Mediterranean coasts, a fascinating wealth of different landscapes and lifestyles awaits, which you can discover quite enjoyably at your own pace. Also on board: emerging young talents

Founded in 1950, the University of Music and Theater in Hamburg offers a variety of courses in and relating to the performing arts. In addition to the artisticscientific education, the exchange with different countries and cultures forms the lifeblood of the students and faculty from nearly fifty nations. Is there anything more exciting than to witness the beginning of an artist’s career? In a longstanding cooperation with SEA CLOUD CRUISES, the university is delighted to assign two of their highly talented young artists for a special engagement on your journey from Genoa to Valencia.

Two fascinating windjammers on a joint course between modernity and tradition: Valencia – Cádiz Windjammer rendezvous off the coast of Spain

When the SEA CLOUD II meets the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT in the Mediterranean Sea to sail together, there is a real sense of joy at the reunion of these two ships. One moment, the windjammers glide majestically side by side; then again they compete in a playful race under full sail from the Costa Blanca to the Costa del Sol. A fascinating mix in Valencia

Many bygone eras have left their mark on Valencia, but this historical legacy is juxtaposed with an impressive mixture of magnificent modern buildings. It is this vast spectrum that gives the city its unique appeal. The offbeat design of the opera house appears futuristic, with the building situated in an expansive museum and park district that stretches from the city center all the way to the coast. Málaga – city of culture

Much more than just “Costa” and “Sol”: As the second largest city in Andalusia, in recent years Málaga has evolved into a true destination of culture. Next to classic sites like the cathedral and the Moorish Alcazaba, Picasso’s birthplace entices with suprisingly varied museums. World cultural heritage all in white: Tétouan

It is quite obvious why the city bears the poetic epithet “white dove of the Mediterranean”. Tétouan’s whitewashed houses speckle the mountainsides like brilliant splashes of color – simply picturesque. Hidden behind the thick city wall is the lively Medina. With its backyards, narrow archways and Moorish-Andalusian mix of styles, it is considered one of the most authentic in Morocco. Mohammed VI likes to spend his summers in the green and white royal palace of Tétouan. 140

Joie de vivre on the Andalusian coast, mysterious Morocco and the diversity of the Canary Islands: Cádiz – Las Palmas Windjammer rendezvous off the Canaries

Few and far between are the occasions, on which one can experience two fascinating windjammers together and directly compare their manoeuvres. Sailing from Cádiz to Las Palmas, the two SEA CLOUD sisters follow the same course for several days. When both yachts glide along side by side under full sail, they offer a truly breathtaking spectacle. The magic of the royal cities

Jugglers and spices, mosques and mint tea – Morocco’s royal cities are a colorful world full of oriental magic. Casablanca is the starting point for excursions to Rabat or Marrakech, where the busy labyrinth of the souks and filigree sultans’ palaces can be admired. From Agadir, the next destination is Taroudant. The oasis town enchants with its fairy-tale Medina, built in the 18th century entirely of clay. Pure nature: stunning national parks

Magical trade mists, gnarled pine trees, babbling head streams – the Canary Islands’ national parks guarantee protection for some of their most outstanding ecosystems. Whilst Garajonay’s misty evergreen forest boasts over 1,000 animal species, Caldera de Taburiente, Timanfaya and Las Cañadas del Teide impress with their rugged volcanic craters and rock formations.

Green hills, black lava and a captivating mix of cultures – under sail from the Canary Islands to Cape Verde: Las Palmas – Santiago Magic forest and moonscape: two famous national parks

These two UNESCO World Natural Heritage Sites could hardly be more different: While the evergreen cloud forest Garajonay at the heart of La Gomera offers fascinating scenery made up of rivers, waterfalls and dense moss, Tenerife’s Las Cañadas del Teide National Park is extremely dry. With tall lava tongues and bizarre rock formations, its volcanic landscape looks almost like the surface of the moon. The rich cultural mix of Cape Verde

Not just geographically, Cape Verde is situated between Africa, the Caribbean and Europe. The Portuguese colony was a hub of the slave trade and exile for the religiously persecuted. Since 1461, customs, musical traditions and genes have amalgamated to the entirely new Creole culture. In 1975, the República Cabo Verde proudly declared its independence. Santo Antão, the island of contrast

The second largest island of Cape Verde enchants with its spectacular natural diversity. While the volcanic craters in the barren south are reminiscent of moonscapes, rocky mountainous landscapes alternate with green and fertile valleys in the north. Besides pineapples, mango trees and coconut palms, sugar cane is also grown here – and distilled into the national schnaps Grogue. São Vicente – native island of Cesária Évora

Violin sounds mingle with African drums, Fado meets Polka and creates musical styles like Morna, Batuque and Funaná: The Cape Verde Islands are a melting pot of world music. Special combination price advantage:

t the Atlantic from the Cape Verde Islands: Santiago – St Maarten

On board the SEA CLOUD II, our attentive crew welcomes you with only one goal in mind: To pamper you for 15 days. Sports, massage and cosmetics, lectures, classes in knot tying and astronomy, insights into traditional sailing, and culinary theme dinners provide plenty of diversity. Take advantage of this perfect time out and choose your personal well-being program. Best sailing conditions for beginners and enthusiasts alike

We adjust our course towards the Caribbean summer completely to the trade wind. Constant winds ensure that we can often even sail at night. A real spectacle is without any doubt the first setting of the sails on deck: The sailors climb into the shrouds, untie the heavy cloths and tighten the ropes of the 23 sails on board. Until they all proudly billow in the wind, it takes about one hour of traditional manual labor. This is just as exciting to watch for sailing novices as for old sea dogs.

Closing your eyes in the knowledge that several days of blue ocean between the deck under your feet and the nearest port lie ahead … an idea that fascinates most of us. But unlike the great explorers who set out for new worlds in uncertainty, today we know about the ideal sailing conditions under the trade winds that reliably take you to the Caribbean on the Columbus route. Thus the motto is: Farewell to everyday worries and full speed ahead!

Special Offer Pirate islands, sailors’ haunts and dream beaches – the perfect mix of Caribbean luxury and relaxed lifestyle: St Maarten – Santo Domingo Above the wind: sailing with the trade wind

Around the holidays, the trade wind blows with particular intensity: The so-called Christmas Winds then provide ideal sailing conditions in the Caribbean Sea. When the warm breeze fills the white sails and the beautiful SEA CLOUD II picks up speed, you experience pure windjammer feeling. No wonder that the BVIs and St Maarten are also known under the name “islands above the wind”. Luxury in a relaxed atmosphere on St Barths

Known for attracting a certain class of visitor, St Barthélemy has been a top holiday destination for the rich and famous from around the world ever since billionaire David Rockefeller discovered the island back in the 1960s. St Barths is all about quality not quantity, so you are more likely to brush shoulders with Hollywood stars than with tourists on its 22 white sandy beaches. In the capital Gustavia, houses with red roofs nestled into the green hills look just like rows of spectators in an amphitheater, transforming the idyllic port into an impressive stage.

SEA CLOUD II – CRUISES

Atlantic Ocean


Cuba up close between rum, rhythm and colorful colonial facades – experience the rousing temperament of the Caribbean island. The magical Maravillas caves

The Spanish name for this natural structure – Cuevas de Maravillas – means “Cave of Wonders”, and for good reason: Visitors to this incredible underground world cannot help but be amazed. With stunning lighting and echoes of cathedral architecture, the ceilings are lined with huge stalactites, while stalagmites protrude from the ground like Gothic pinnacles, and pre-Columbian Taino Indian ritual murals adorn the walls. Several relaxing days at sea

Besides crossing worlds and discovering new lands, we let relaxation take a front seat on our yacht for four whole days. Plenty of time to enjoy life under the white sails and be spoilt in every way. Port Antonio – natural beauty in Jamaica

Known for its reggae, Rastafarians and rum, Jamaica has many magical and serene natural settings to offer alongside its rousing rhythms. Port Antonio in the northeast is the spot on the island with the most beautiful scenery. With its perfect beaches, lush tropical vegetation and countless caves, rivers and waterfalls, the area surrounding this small colonial town has been a celebrity hotspot since the nineteen-forties, attracting famous visitors like Errol Flynn and providing the exotic backdrop for a number of movies. Santiago de Cuba, the Cradle of the Son

Thanks to copper, coffee and sugar cane, for a long time Santiago de Cuba was a prosperous trading city that protected itself from pirates with its “El Morro” fortress. The Casa Diego de Velazquez shows how comfortably its upper class lived at that time. Today, Santiago’s true wealth lies in its musical culture: Salsa and Son, as

146

played by Compay Segundo of the Buena Vista Social Club, are the lifeblood of the Santiagueros. The resting place of the musical legend can be found in the Santa Ifigenia Cemetery – a sea of white marble. Trinidad’s old town

Trinidad de Cuba is a small, friendly place with a long history as a center for sugar cane farming. Its charming coastal setting, lovingly restored facades and gentle pace of life can be experienced in any of the town’s beautiful squares and in the narrow, historic alleyways. This small town has a well-deserved place on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. Havana – exuding history and energy

The capital of Cuba offers a bright and colorful cocktail of colonial history, revolutionary heritage and a timeless joie de vivre. You can really feel the authenticity of this city’s charm in Old Havana, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a district defined by imposing fortresses and exuberant shopping streets, baroque churches and monasteries, palaces and wide squares, not to mention the American vintage cars that cruise through the streets. An evening walk along the Malecón seafront promenade is a particular highlight for anyone who wants to experience the real Havana: This is where the locals go when the sun sets – to play chess, make music, go fishing, or simply enjoy a glass or two of rum as they look out at the glistening bay. A lecturer accompanies the trip

Knowledge, entertainment and facts – our expert is on hand to give talks on a wide variety of specialist subjects. He/she will also be on board to answer any questions that you may have.

Unique nature parks & living biosphere reserves The diversity of the Canary Islands makes for lasting impressions: Barren lunar landscapes and lush forests alternate with long stretches of beach and dune landscapes. Explore the individual islands by jeep or on foot. Or, depending on your personal preference, be more adventurous and get around by trike, twizzy or quad bike. Paradise for whales and dolphins Ideal conditions and mild temperatures make the Canary Islands not only an attractive residence for people, but also a special habitat for whales and dolphins. In spring, some 29 different species of marine mammals cavort off Tenerife and La Gomera. Go on an exciting whale watching tour, accompanied by local experts. The Canaries’ unique cultural mix Deeply rooted, Canarian traditions and the culture of the indigenous people are closely related, and yet each island has its own heritage. The islanders still value and cultivate their traditions today. Get to know, among other things, the “Timple”, a typical string instrument on Lanzarote; or the whistling language “El Silbo”, which has been used on La Gomera for thousands of years and is unique in the world. The stars, nautical science & navigation The stars already guided the old seafarers to new shores. On the Canary Islands you can gaze into the clearest starry sky in Europe. That is why La Palma and Tenerife are home to two internationally renowned observatories. Whether during an evening “starry hour”, setting the sails by hand or explaining about knots on deck, our officers will be happy to share their nautical knowledge with you. Arranged exclusively for you: To offer you an even deeper insight into this versatile sailing area on this cruise, we invite you to four events ashore – all of them exclusive and very private.

Two evening events included From the diversity of the Canary Islands to mysterious Morocco and the coast of Andalusia: Las Palmas – Cádiz Lanzarote and its famous architect

With his vision of a harmonious link between mankind and nature, César Manrique transformed Lanzarote into a work of art. This surrealist painter, architect, sculptor, designer and conservationist created colorful wind chimes and wall mosaics, turned lava caves into homes and tirelessly fought to ensure the preservation of the natural and cultural identity of his island of birth. On the trail of the Moors

The Moors created a multitude of colorful mosaics, daring stucco and elaborate ornamentation of unique beauty. This art still decorates palaces and mosques today. In Rabat, especially the gate to the Kasbah of the Oudaia and the Hassan Tower are worth seeing. The tower, originally used for calls to prayer, belongs to an unfinished mosque and is a landmark of the city today.

Seafood & Wine Gourmet tour along the Mediterranean coast – delicious seafood and exquisite wines between Andalusia and the Côte d’Azur: Cádiz – Nice Pure indulgence in culinary delights

Between Cádiz and Nice, the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT sets course for the most varied gourmet regions of the Mediterranean coast. Spanish paella and delicious tapas, fresh French oysters, bouillabaisse from Marseille and the richly stocked fish platters of the Côte d’Azur – on this route, one culinary delight follows the other. Needless to say, our sommelier on board will once again provide excellent accompanying wines. Charming contrasts: Valencia

In addition to venerable historic buildings, Valencia boasts an impressive number of modern structures, such as the futuristic opera house – a mix that lends the city its special charm. Valencia also bridges the gap between past and present when it comes to culinary delights. The city is considered the home of paella: After the Arabs introduced rice cultivation here in the 8th century, the triumph of the delicious dish in its distinctive pan was unstoppable.

Greet the Iberian early summer and discover Lisbon, the City of the great Seafarers: Málaga – Porto (Leixões) Very British: Gibraltar

Europe lies on the starboard side, Africa glides by on the port side: At its narrowest point the strait is just 14 kilometers (8.7 miles) wide, making a passage through the Strait of Gibraltar a very special experience. The landmark of the British overseas territory is the striking Monkey Rock. While macaques are happily swinging around on top of the old defenses, rock engravings of the Neanderthals can be found in the caves below. Seville, the capital of Andalusia

Visiting Seville, you walk right into Spain’s eventful history – past the stony witnesses of its Moorish past and the glorious times as a maritime trade hub. Above the narrow lanes of the old town and the palm-fringed squares emerges the imposing Giralda: Originally built as a minaret of the main mosque, it was later incorporated into the cathedral as its bell tower. Two Days in the city of great explorers

Lisbon’s rich heritage as a seafarer city is obvious wherever you go: Many of its monuments, promenades and vantage points bear the names of Portuguese explorers. There is also plenty to discover beyond the famous sights. With its countless bars, pubs and unique shops, Bairro Alto for example invites visitors to a leisurely stroll. Unique panoramic view of the Tagus await as the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT pulls out of Lisbon, much is reminiscent of the Age of Discovery.

Porto, the baroque beauty

A place to fall in Iove with. Porto offers everything to make your heart beat faster: beautiful baroque buildings, an impressive cathedral, probably the most beautiful bookshop in the world and a charming Old Town nestling on the slopes above the Douro. Santiago de Compostela – a place of pilgrimage

Santiago de Compostela, one of the world’s most famous pilgrimage sites, is the final stop and climax of the Way of St James – a pilgrimage route that has been followed since the 11th century. During this time, the city’s magnificent cathedral was also established as one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Christianity. A historical gem: Oviedo

Oviedo has a heart for walkers: The historic center of the Asturian capital is car-free, so the picturesque cobble- stone streets with their market stalls, the impressive Cathedral of San Salvador and the pre-Romanesque stone churches are best explored on foot. Not far from the ancient town hall beats the heart of the Old Town. Here, small streets open up into pretty plazas lined by restaurants and the famous Sidrerías.

A long weekend with modern art and imposing nature on the coasts of Portugal and Galicia: Porto (Leixões) – Bilbao A little break from your daily routine

No matter whether you are keen to enjoy the authentic windjammer atmosphere on board or prefer to discover the charming cities onshore, hundreds of new impressions will turn your little break into a wonderful experience. The Islas Cíes Nature Reserve

According to Galician legend, the Cíes archipelago is the place where God rested on the seventh day after he created the world – and it is easy to see why. The site, now a nature reserve, encompasses a substantial area of sea and three islands which, with their steep coasts, sand dunes and small forests, are perfect for individual hikes.

SEA CLOUD SPIRIT – CRUISES

DENMARK


Following the routes of proud Hanseatic cogs to Baltic and Scandinavian ports steeped in tradition. A panoramic trip along the Elbe

Gdansk: a city with many stories to tell

The SEA CLOUD SPIRIT departs from Hamburg’s harbor and glides along the Elbe at a leisurely pace. Past the patrician mansions of the Elbchaussee, stair-lined Blankenese, the Airbus grounds and the picturesque banks of the Elbe with their green dykes.

Founded over one thousand years ago and renowned as a cosmopolitan, wealthy trade port, Gdansk is one of Poland’s most beautiful cities. The “Rechtstadt” in the heart of the city is a must, enchanting visitors with delightful small streets and a wealth of historical sights: St Mary’s Basilica, Arthur’s Court and the Golden Gate are all easily accessible on foot.

Seven countries in 15 days

From the distinctive architecture of Scandinavia to the fairytale romance of St Petersburg and its golden cupolas: The Baltic Sea offers a range of unique and vastly differing impressions. On its journey, our windjammer will call at ports in seven countries offering countless UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a fascinating insight into the scenic and cultural diversity of this region. Visby – Sweden’s beautiful hanseatic city

The medieval town of Visby is located on the island of Gotland, southeast of Stockholm. With more than fifty watchtowers, three city gates and numerous bridges, it is considered one of the best preserved hanseatic cities in the entire Baltic Sea region and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. Visitors stroll through the idyllic Old Town through dreamy alleys lined with hollyhocks. Climbing over narrow stairs and steps is like going on a journey back to the era of merchants and knights. And with its variety of small shops, art galleries and cafés, also today’s Visby has a lot to offer.

176

Stockholm and its archipelago

On mild summer evenings, Sweden’s capital city exudes a Mediterranean joie de vivre. Stockholm is creative and in tune with nature, welcoming and historical, a shopping paradise and home of the Royal Palace. Upon arrival and departure, you will be greeted by an idyllic view of the old town island before entering the enchanting world of the skerry landscape and its 30,000 islands. St Petersburg – former city of the Tsars

In 1703, Tsar Peter the Great commissioned the best architects of his time with the planning of a perfect, harmonious city and created one of the most brilliant metropolises of old Europe. Thanks to its wealth of unique buildings including the Church of the Resurrection of Christ, the Isaac’s Cathedral, the Hermitage or the Catherine Palace, the former capital of the Russian Empire is still considered as an architectural miracle today.

Visitors stroll through the idyllic Old Town through dreamy alleys lined with hollyhocks. Shifting sand dunes and wooden houses: the Curonian Spit

Even Thomas Mann could see the Curonian Spit’s potential as a tourist spot. Enormous shifting sand dunes tower over this small strip of land that separates the Baltic Sea from the Curonian Lagoon, earning this UNESCO World Heritage Site the epithet “The Sahara of East Prussia”. Klaipeda, situated on the northern end of the spit, is West Lithuania’s cultural center, enchanting visitors with quaint timber-framed houses and neo-Gothic architecture.

Young talents, exclusive piano concerts, and sunny days of sailing – the Steinway cruise for enthusiastic connoisseurs of music. At Steinway every piano is a masterpiece

For many the Steinway name is synonymous with the piano – and for good reason, as ever since Henry E. Steinway and his sons founded their company in New York in 1853, Steinway & Sons has produced firstclass pianos, every one of which is a masterpiece with character. Thanks to their passion for innovation and unfailing attention to detail, today Steinway is considered the founder of modern piano manufacturing. Promoting a new generation of pianists

Steinway & Sons is committed to promoting young pianists and supports them through the Steinway Prizewinner Concert Network. Although many young musicians have a great deal of talent and flair, they mostly remain unknown in the music world. This is where Steinway comes into play: Highly talented musicians are selected in first-class piano competitions and are given the opportunity to introduce themselves to a broad audience at international performances. Emerging talents

Is there anything more exciting than to witness the beginning of an artist’s career? No less than three young laureates chosen by Steinway will demonstrate their skills during this cruise with different concerts on board and on land. Look forward to exquisite musical pleasures!

180

Also on board: Ulrich Gerhartz

Born in Hamburg, Ulrich Gerhartz learned the profession of piano maker in the factory of Steinway & Sons, completing his education with the title of Master Piano Maker. During this time, he came to value the philosphy and mission of Steinway & Sons and its founder Heinrich Engelhard Steinweg: to build the best possible piano. His first two years he spent in London in the Restoration Centre of the Steinway Hall where he learned to refurbish old Steinway & Sons pianos. In 1992, he transferred to the “Concert” department and was promoted to Director of the Concert & Artists’ Service two years later. He keeps close working relations with the world’s best pianists and worked, for instance, with Alfred Brendel right up to Brendel’s last concert in Vienna. In addition to his work in Great Britain, Ulrich Gerhartz regularly visits the Hamburg factory to choose new pianos and meet with the production departments. Time and again, he also supports pianists during their concerts in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Israel and various European countries, and looks after some of the pianos in concert halls all over the world. On board, he will give several entertaining talks on the history and construction of the piano. Depending upon the circumstances, it is possible that another expert will join this cruise instead.

Oviedo has a heart for walkers: The historic center of the Asturian capital is car-free, so the picturesque cobblestone streets with their market stalls, the impressive Cathedral of San Salvador and the pre-Romanesque stone churches are best explored on foot. Not far from the ancient town hall beats the heart of the Old Town. Here, small streets open up into pretty plazas lined by restaurants and the famous Sidrerías. Santiago de Compostela – a place of pilgrimage

Santiago de Compostela, one of the world’s most famous pilgrimage sites, is the final stop and climax of the Way of St James – a pilgrimage route that has been followed since the 11th century. During this time, the city’s magnificent cathedral was also established as one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Christianity, alongside Rome and Jerusalem. This building, together with the Old Town, is protected by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The Islas Cíes Nature Reserve

According to Galician legend, the Cíes archipelago is the place where God rested on the seventh day after he created the world – and it is easy to see why. The site, now a nature reserve, encompasses a substantial area of sea and three islands which, with their steep coasts, sand dunes and small forests, are perfect for individual hikes.

Taster Cruise Elegantly extend the summer between Catalonia’s creative metropolis and the glamorous Côte d’Azur: Barcelona – Nice A short break from the daily routine

According to the calendar, autumn already begins at the end of September – a fact that can be ignored quite excellently in the south of France. If you don’t feel like autumn blues yet, you can sail away from everyday life for a few days towards the Côte d’Azur. On board our windjammer it’s easy to relax in the fresh sea air and sunshine. Living Provençal style in Aix

Its successful blend of baroque elegance and a lively student scene is one of the reasons why Aix-enProvence ranks amongst France’s top five of the most popular places to live. Stroll under the old plane trees of the famous Cours Mirabeau for a taste of this Provençal capital’s history; its main boulevard is lined with small bistros and antique shops, elegant residences, fountains and boutiques.

The fjords of Provence: the Calanques

Seen from above, the small boats almost seem to float between the steep rock faces – the turquoise sea is that clear. The magical nature of the Calanques National Park is best explored from the water. More than 20 fjordlike bays cut into the wildly romantic coastline between Marseille and Cassis here, forming small sandy beaches hidden between powder-white cliffs. Glamorous: St Tropez and the Côte d’Azur

Sun, sea and the scent of mimosas: In the 19th century, wealthy Englishmen and Russians fell in love with the Côte d’Azur: Escaping from winter, they enjoyed the serene savoir-vivre in sophisticated hotels and on palmlined promenades. St Tropez is still the most glamorous stomping ground of the rich and beautiful. Here, chic meets charm: Promenading along the marina and through the enchanting lanes, you stroll right into the world of the jetset.

Sicily to starboard – once around the multifaceted island and across 3,000 years of cultural history: Malta – Malta Sicily’s many facets

The largest of the Mediterranean islands is a fabulously diverse microcosm in its own right – with rich cultural history dating back 3,000 years, with different monuments marking each era, with Europe’s highest and most active volcano, Mount Etna, and with towns and villages featuring a character and flair all of their own. Melting pot of cultures: Palermo

Massive northern walls, graceful oriental pointed arches, curved baroque facades – Palermo is absolutely bursting with architectural splendor. More than a thousand years ago, the city was already a thriving cultural metropolis whose cosmopolitan rulers blended Norman, Arabic and Byzantine influences. This serene mix of styles and cultures still accounts for Palermo’s unique charm today. Syracuse: UNESCO World Heritage Site

Cicero once described Syracuse as “the greatest and most beautiful of the Greek cities”. Up to a million people – three times the population of mighty Athens – are claimed to have lived there in antiquity. This city on the small island of Ortigia was later conquered first by the Romans, then by Arabs, Byzantines and Normans. They have left behind a unique architectural heritage: The UNESCO declared Syracuse a World Heritage Site in 2005 due to its archaeological importance. A lecturer accompanies the trip

Erice – an antique town with a spectacular view

Like a mighty eagle’s nest, the little mountain town sits atop Mount Erice. Passing through one of the three old town gates, you are entering a medieval world of tiny crooked streets and well-worn paving stones. A highlight in every sense is the Norman Castello di Venere. A stunning town with volcanic views: Taormina

Its list of admirers includes Goethe, Oscar Wilde and Liz Taylor. It seems the unique charm of Taormina in the north east of Sicily has always attracted famous summer visitors. One site that is particularly worth seeing is the town’s Roman amphitheater built in the 2nd century BC: From the “Teatro Greco” you can enjoy a heavenly panoramic view of Mount Etna and the Giardini Naxos Bay. Menorca – the pristine Balearic island

From the northern rugged mountain region of Tramuntana with its steep coast to gentle rolling hills and vast sandy beaches in the South: Menorca’s natural beauty has many facets. If you prefer the romantic setting of ancient narrow lanes, you will find just what you are looking for in Ciutadella, the island’s former capital. Cruise-only rates per person Category

A short break full of Mediterranean ease between old town strolls and the sunny nature of the Balearic Islands: Palma de Mallorca – Valencia Recharge your batteries before winter

Just before the golden October turns into a grey November is the best time to refuel once more on that warm vacation feeling. On board our windjammer, you can extend the summer particularly stylishly: Sailing on a course to the Balearic Islands and the sunny “Costa de Valencia”, you will soon clear your head of the autumn routine at home. Ibiza, multifaceted island between culture and nature

Party island, hippie retreat, natural paradise – the fact that UNESCO designated Ibiza a “mixed world heritage site” is significant. The Balearic beauty simply offers an incredible number of facets to fall in love with: While in Ibiza’s Old Town the flair of the small cobblestone streets enchants, the surrounding countryside impresses with imposing rocky coasts and fragrant pine forests. One place where Ibiza’s natural energy can be experienced in a particularly luxurious setting is the exclusive Atzaró Retreat – a spectacular country hotel in the heart of the island. Here, yoga and wellness amidst extensive orange groves bring the senses, body and mind into harmony. A fascinating mix in Valencia

Many bygone eras have left their mark on Valencia, but this historical legacy is juxtaposed with an impressive mixture of magnificent modern buildings. It is this vast spectrum that gives the city its unique appeal. The offbeat design of the opera house appears futuristic, with the building situated in an expansive museum and park district that stretches from the city center all the way to the coast.

Where the SEA CLOUD II and SEA CLOUD SPIRIT meet to sail side by side between Spain and Morocco: Valencia – Casablanca Málaga – city of culture

Much more than just “Costa” and “Sol”: As the second largest city in Andalusia, in recent years Málaga has evolved into a true destination of culture. Next to classic sites like the cathedral and the Moorish Alcazaba, Picasso’s birthplace entices with suprisingly varied museums that focus on topics from archaeology and modern art to automobile design, wine and glass. World cultural heritage all in white: Tétouan

It is quite obvious why the city bears the poetic epithet “white dove of the Mediterranean”. Tétouan’s whitewashed houses speckle the mountainsides like brilliant splashes of color – simply picturesque. Hidden behind the thick city wall is the lively Medina. With its backyards, narrow archways and Moorish-Andalusian mix of styles, it is considered one of the most authentic in Morocco. Mohammed VI likes to spend his summers in the green and white royal palace of Tétouan. Seville, the capital of Andalusia

Visiting Seville, you walk right into Spain’s eventful history – past the stony witnesses of its Moorish past and the glorious times as a maritime trade hub. Above the narrow lanes of the old town and the palm-fringed squares emerges the imposing Giralda: Originally built as a minaret of the main mosque, it was later incorporated into the cathedral as its bell tower.

Mysterious Morocco and five contrasting island sisters: Casablanca – Las Palmas Windjammer rendezvous off the Canaries

Few and far between are the occasions, on which one can experience two fascinating windjammers together and directly compare their maneuvers. Sailing from Casablanca to Tenerife, the two SEA CLOUD sisters follow the same course for several days. When both yachts glide along side by side under full sail, they offer a truly breathtaking spectacle. Fertile oasis: the Berber town of Taroudant

Halfway between the sunny coast and the snow-capped peaks of the High Atlas, Taroudant lies in the middle of the fertile Sous Valley. For centuries, caravans passed through the old Berber town, which is still entered through one of the oriental town gates today. Hidden behind the mighty rammed-earth city wall is the fairy-tale Medina with its bustling souks, where handicrafts, spices and the famous Argan oil are sold. The diversity of the Canary Islands

Lanzarote, Tenerife, La Gomera, El Hierro and Gran Canaria – on this cruise you will visit five of the seven Canary Islands and can get to know their different characters. The mix of urban experience and magnificent nature is particularly exciting: Whereas in cosmopolitan Las Palmas you may stroll along endless beach promenades, in tranquil San Sebastián you can wander through quaint narrow lanes and marvel at magical cloud forests and craggy volcanic cauldrons in the islands’ national parks. On Lanzarote, César Manrique incorporated nature into his surrealist art: The painter, architect and sculptor created colorful wind chimes and wall mosaics and creatively redesigned lava caves into living spaces.

SAILING

When the trade winds billow the 4,100 m2 (44,100 sq ft) sailcloth of the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT, not only the hearts of sailing enthusiasts beat faster. Driven by the constant forces of the wind, the traditional tall ship follows the course of ancient routes of discovery. Where modern comfort turns the passage into a wellness trip, manual work and tradition are still very important when setting the sails: Follow the well-rehearsed procedures of the sailors from up close and learn everything worth knowing about the freedom of crossing the Atlantic. To the Caribbean in the tracks of Columbus

SAILING

It is almost impossible to sail across the Atlantic on the Columbus route without constantly being drawn into his world of thought. Unlike the famous explorer, however, we know what lies beyond the seemingly endless horizon at the end of the blue ocean: The island paradises of the Caribbean are waiting to greet you with summer temperatures after fantastic days of sailing. And so during the next 16 days: sit back and enjoy, because the journey is the destination. Destination: Relaxation

Great adventures do not always have to involve great exertion: the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT offers an ideal mix combining the romantic atmosphere of a windjammer with the superior comfort of a cruise ship. Enjoy magnificent sunsets from your private balcony or while working out with modern cardio equipment in the fitness area. Feel the salty Atlantic breeze blow away your last everyday thoughts in the deck chair during the day.

A colorful Caribbean break between the US and British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico: St Maarten – St Maarten Sailor’s paradise: the British and US Virgin Islands

With their more than 100 islets and riffs, most of which are uninhabited, the British and US Virgin Islands are a real dream destination. Sailing enthusiasts from all over the world are drawn to this tropic sailing paradise; and in the rustic beach bars, everyone is welcomed by the crowd – whether luxury yacht owner or single-handed sailor. With your feet in the sand as you gaze out over green hills and the tranquil sea, you will soon forget about your everyday routine back home. San Juan: vivacity in the Old Town

Where the streets narrow, colorful houses are crowding, and the cobblestones shimmer with a blueish tinge, the Old Town of San Juan still exists in all its colonial splendor. From the anchorage of the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT, the historic quarter with its Caribbean joie de vivre, its countless bars, restaurants and shops, can easily be explored on foot. Culebrita, uninhabited beach island

The ruin of an old lighthouse is the only building on Culebrita as the little coral island is uninhabited – by humans at least. Birds, tortoises and other sea dwellers feel all the more at home here, because the hidden isle with its six dream beaches is entirely protected by an environmental conservation order.

Sailor’s paradise: the British and US Virgin Islands

With their more than 100 islets and riffs, most of which are uninhabited, the British and US Virgin Islands are a real dream destination. Sailing enthusiasts from all over the world are drawn to this tropic sailing paradise; and in the rustic beach bars, everyone is welcomed by the crowd – whether luxury yacht owner or single-handed sailor. Relaxed luxury on St Barths

Ever since billionaire David Rockefeller discovered the island for himself in the 1960s, St Barthélemy has been a favorite destination for the international jetset. You spend some time on one of the glorious beaches, then stroll along the luxurious promenade, and bring the day to a relaxed close enjoying a sundowner while gazing at the impressive private yachts in Gustavia’s harbor. The natural beauty of Bonaire

Bonaire is a true paradise for nature lovers. While the breathtaking view on land features craggy coastlines, extraordinary cactus deserts, winding mangrove forests, shocking pink flamingoes and gorgeous beaches, underwater quite another magical world unfolds.

Caribbean summer wind, pastel-colored Dutch island flair, and relaxed joie de vivre: St. Maarten – Curaçao The magnificent Pitons of St Lucia

Gros and Petit Piton, the two famous volcanic plugs that tower over St Lucia, could have come straight out of a tropical storybook. They are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and offer a spectacular panorama as the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT sails closely alongside their slopes. Hidden Caribbean paradise: Bequia

It might be better not to be too enthusiastic about Bequia, for it to remain such a charming insider’s tip. Unimpressed by trends and hustle and bustle, the Grenadine island has retained its natural Caribbean flair. Here, the mind immediately switches to barefoot mode: With cold beer and reggae, locals and sailors sit together in small beach bars and live easily into the day. Grenada – the island of spice

Although Grenada has been blessed with around 45 picture-perfect beaches, the country’s real treasure remains its lush, green island interior. Deep volcanic lakes, dense rainforests, waterfalls and small river courses form the primordial backdrop for the island’s sugar cane fields and spice plantations. Not surprising that the scent of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg hangs in the air.

Special Offer Simply letting go and taking it easy – sail with the tall ship under the trade winds from the ABC Islands to Panama: Curaçao – Panama City (Colón) The colorful diversity of the ABC islands

As practical as it is to subsume them as the ABC islands – the three Antilles beauties cannot be pigeonholed. On this trip, you will get to know two of the islands: While aloe plants and giant cacti dot the barren hills in Aruba's Arikok National Park, Curaçao contrasts with candy-colored colonial architecture. Cartagena’s colonial center

When in the old days, the Spanish fleet entered the port twice a year to sell weapons and horses and load gold, silver and gems, all of Cartagena was out and about. Founded in 1533, the historic town exudes the flair of colonial times until today. With its colorful houses, Andalusian palaces and numerous churches, the historical center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The green channels of Tortuguero National Park

The park measures 20,000 hectares and is located directly on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Traveling through the park by boat, one immediately notices its extensive system of canals and lagoons. This forms the optimal habitat for countless animal species, among them parrots, toucans, sloths, caimans, monkeys, and also turtles.

SEA CLOUD SPIRIT – CRUISES

Caribbean Sea


Colonial heritage in Nicaragua, fascinating flora and fauna in Costa Rica and the Panama Canal experience. Fascinating Panama Canal

Léon – liberal and spiritual centre

This masterpiece of engineering art has been connecting the Pacific with the Atlantic for more than 100 years. In 2016, its extension was opened: Within nine years, 40,000 workers had used 192,000 tons of steel in order to enable the passage of giant freighters carrying up to 14,000 containers. Passing through the mighty locks during the day is a rather special experience.

In a competition to find the most exciting city in all of Nicaragua, Léon would come out on top. The city breathes history. The revolution seems omnipresent in the hearts of its inhabitants and on the walls of their homes. From here come heroes, but also the writers and thinkers of the country. Architecturally, Léon also has much to offer: Surrounded by charming cafés and colonial houses, the “Basilica Catedral de La Asuncion” forms the center of the city. It is the largest cathedral of Central America and, in 2011, was included by UNESCO in the World Heritage List.

Megacity in the jungle: Panama City

As an international trade center, gate to the Panama Canal and starting point for excursions to spectacular national parks, Panama City has evolved into a lively trend metropolis. Away from the sparkling skyline, time still moves at a different pace in the old quarter of the Casco Viejo: Strolling along grand old boulevards lined with bougainvillea is like walking right back into colonial times. Costa Rica’s national parks – a green paradise

As more than a quarter of Costa Rica’s land is protected in the form of nature reserves, it provides a safe home for a truly unbelievable variety of flora and fauna. There seems to be no end to the natural highlights that await you in this peaceful little country, which has had no armed forces since 1948. The numerous national parks boast majestic volcanic craters and mysterious cloud forests alongside picturesque beaches and evergreen rainforests.

Granada – a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Situated picturesquely at the foot of a volcano and on the shore of a lake, the Nicaraguan town of Granada never ceases to conjure up stunning views of the natural and the man-made. Founded by the Spanish in 1524, it was one of the most influential towns in Central America for around 200 years. It is still considered an insider tip among the region’s colonial pearls. The significance of its historical legacy has earned it a very special seal of approval: a place on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List. A lecturer accompanies the trip

You are bound to have some questions about all the fascinating flora and fauna found in the national parks we visit on our trip. For that reason, a scientist, who knows all there is to know about the region’s varying ecosystems, will be on board to provide you with the answers. He/she will be joining us for the entire journey, giving talks and accompanying us on excursions.

As small as Panama and Costa Rica appear on the map, they are home to more species of plants and animals than can be found in all of Northern America and Europe combined. Both countries have placed more than a quarter of their total area under protection and offer the impressive number of more than 200 national parks, forest reserves and game sanctuaries. During this trip, a multitude of different landscapes presents itself – from rain forests and tropical flower paradises to mystical mangrove woods and beautiful beaches. Fascinating Panama Canal

San Blas: Guna culture under palm trees

Time seems to stand still in the San Blas Archipelago. Here, the Guna people still live as their ancestors did: Hammocks sway in bamboo huts; and in front of them women sew molas, brightly colored works of fabric art. The fascinating culture of the islands can be discovered at leisure: Because the Guna want to preserve their customs, they do not allow mass tourism in their paradise.

Founded by the Spanish in 1524, it was one of the most influential towns in Central America for around 200 years. It is still considered an insider tip among the region’s colonial pearls. The significance of its historical legacy has earned it a very special seal of approval: a place on the UNESCO World Heritage Site List.

The magic of Central America: legendary Mayan sites, breathtaking underwater world, natural wonders and Miami’s multicultural smile. Megacity in the jungle: Panama City

Famous Mayan sites in Belize and Mexico

As an international trade center, gate to the Panama Canal and starting point for excursions to spectacular national parks, Panama City has evolved into a lively trend metropolis. Away from the sparkling skyline, time still moves at a different pace in the old quarter of the Casco Viejo: Strolling along grand old boulevards lined with bougainvillea is like walking right back into colonial times.

The ancient Mayan civilization in Central America, which began about 5,000 years ago and reached its final phase at the time of the Spanish conquest, is still a mystery today. Their ceremonies appear bloodthirsty, their step pyramids are imposing and their stone reliefs exceedingly artistic. Five mysterious Mayan strongholds can be visited on this trip: Altun Ha and Lamanai are located in Belize. On the Yucatán Peninsula, Uxmal impresses with its enormous pyramids. Tulum is the only Mayan site directly on the sea, and Chichén Itzá is one of the most impressive Mayan sites. In 2007, the archaeological site was included in the list of the “Seven Wonders of the Modern World”.

The green channels of Tortuguero National Park

The park measures 20,000 hectares and is located directly on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Traveling through the park by boat, one immediately notices its extensive system of canals and lagoons. This forms the optimal habitat for countless animal species, among them parrots, toucans, sloths, caimans, monkeys, and also turtles.

The world’s second largest coral reef

The Belize Barrier Reef is a 256-kilometer-long (159 miles) reef system which contains countless small coral islands. The Lighthouse Reef Atoll features a particularly special natural wonder: the Great Blue Hole. This circular submarine sinkhole, with a diameter of over 300 meters (0.19 miles), was formed during the last ice age and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Donning your snorkel and getting an underwater view is obviously another great way to discover the impressive beauty of the reef. A lecturer accompanies the trip

Knowledge, entertainment and facts – our expert is on hand to give talks on a wide variety of specialist subjects. He/she will also be on board to answer any questions that you may have.

“White Night” on the Exumas included Insider tip for sailing aficionados – on a new route to the most exclusive islands of the Bahamas and their lush underwater world: Miami – Miami Stranded in paradise: Bahamas exclusive

Coral reefs teeming with life and crystal-clear, shallow waters – what turns the Bahamas’ into such a beautiful paradise is also their most effective protection against too much tourist hustle and bustle: The waters around the Exumas are simply not deep enough for large cruise ships. On this new, exclusive route, you can enjoy the perfect combination of a casual beach and snorkeling vacation and a real sailing experience. Insider tip Exumas

No nosy neighbors, no paparazzi, but plenty of powdered sugar beaches – it’s hardly surprising that many celebrities have chosen the Exumas as their ultra-luxurious retreat. Big Major Cay promises a truly memorable encounter. Here, the famous swimming pigs paddle in the turquoise waters. The colorful coral gardens of the Bahamas

Seen from above, the Bahamas look like a watercolor painted with bold brushstrokes of white, blue and green. But just a few centimeters below the water’s surface, a world of even more dazzling colors opens up. Colorful surgeonfish, elegant rays gliding through the water with gentle wing beats, delicate sea anemones and corals in the most bizarre shapes – in the silence of the magical underwater gardens, you can just drift for hours. Hemingway’s fun-loving Key West

Key West is a world quite of its own: both Caribbean and American, lively and relaxed, historic and a little crazy. A thick buoy marks the southernmost point of the US mainland – from here, it is only 90 miles to Cuba. The historic Old Town of Key West is small but well worth a visit. Wooden houses gleam in pastel shades, an old lighthouse proudly soars into the sky, and Hemingway’s house is hidden behind green palm leaves – a museum that is home to some 50 cats.

Dress code: During the day, you won’t go wrong with smart leisurewear or a summery, casual-chic style. For the evening, we recommend a smart-casual outfit. We kindly request that guests refrain 216

from wearing shorts at evening meals. The Captain’s Dinner (an event which normally takes place twice on each trip – once on short cruises) is a time when our guests tend to opt for a more elegant look. We recommend a suit or ensemble for the gentleman and appropriate dress/outfit for the lady. Please also make sure to take some non-slip shoes with you.

Electric voltage: The voltage on board is 220 V. Each bathroom is equipped with a razor socket.

Entry and vaccination requirements: Information regarding the actual requirements for entry and vaccination you will receive with the detailed offer following your enquiry for a specific cruise.

Internet: Each of our windjammers is equipped with a satellite receiver. On all three ships you have WI-FI access in the public areas; on the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT also in the cabins. You can use your own laptop to access the Internet with an access code (WI-FI), which can be obtained from the reception or the purser at a charge. Continuous reception cannot be guaranteed; in certain sailing areas or due to the set course, interruptions to network coverage might be experienced. The WI-FI connection on a ship is not comparable to the usual connections on land.

Insurance: For your own security, we recommend taking out travel cancellation, luggage, accident, health and curtailment holiday insurance with our partner, Hanse Merkur. Our cruise consultancy will be happy to assist you. Together with Germany’s market-leading travel insurance provider for cruises, we have put together a range of insurance policies for you so that you can enjoy your perfect holiday without any worry or hassle. The German consumer organisation “Stiftung Warentest” is amongst those impressed by HanseMerkur’s range of products, awarding high scores to the company’s insurance policies time and time again. The SEA CLOUD CRUISES Premium Coverage offers you the best protection against any potential risk and the consequences thereof, both before and during your holiday. Cover includes health insurance and return travel expenses. The travel cancellation insurance – solo – offers protection against cancellation costs, and the curtailment holiday insurance policy even offers to reimburse you the cost of the trip in its entirety should you have to cancel your holiday during the first half of the trip. Insurance must be taken out within 30 days of booking. More information on insurance policies and full insurance conditions can be found at www.seacloud.com/travel-insurance


Languages on board:

Restaurant:

The languages used on board are English and German. Daily programs, menus and announcements will be available in both languages. Depending on the group, we always endeavor to organize English-speaking tour guides for our shore excursions.

On our yachts, you will eat in one sitting with a free choice of table seating. Meal times are printed on the daily on-board program. In addition, the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT provides a bistro on the lido deck.

Smoking: Laundry: Our washing and ironing service is provided at an additional charge and carried out overnight. For guests staying in cat. A-C cabins (SEA CLOUD) or cat. A+B cabins (SEA CLOUD II and SEA CLOUD SPIRIT), this service is provided free of charge.

Smoking is permitted only on the outer decks outside of meal times. We kindly request that smokers take the comfort of other passengers into consideration. Smoking is prohibited on the blue lagoon deck and covered areas of the spanker and lido deck as well as on the sun deck and balconies (SEA CLOUD SPIRIT) at all times.

Medical advice:

Tipping:

All three yachts have on-board hospitals managed by the ship’s doctor, who is available at any time in the event of an emergency. SEA CLOUD and SEA CLOUD II are not equipped with lifts/elevators so that guests have to use the stairs. The SEA CLOUD SPIRIT features an elevator. Embarkation and debarkation is via the on-board gangway and is not always level; depending on the tide, access might be steep. Disembarking with the on-board tenders or zodiacs is also via the gangway. Before embarking on one of our voyages, you should therefore be positive that you are in good physical health. If you are unsure whether you will be able to manage the conditions on board, please contact us. Specific care must be agreed upon in advance.

Tips are already included in the price of the trip.

On-board program: Of course, sailing maneuvers and seafaring skills take center stage on board a true windjammer. As of late, you can join in yourself when the sails are hoisted, for example work the clew lines and buntlines when striking the sails or coil the rope ends when clearing the deck. On selected cruises, experts on special topics are on board. Also artists, such as young talents from the Steinway Prizewinner Concert Network, complement the on-board program on selected journeys. At the lido bar, a pianist entertains during the early-evening cocktail hour and also accompanies the after-dinner drinks.

Watersports equipment: On board, you will have access to snorkeling equipment – enough for all guests and available in various sizes. The gangway (SEA CLOUD) or the swim platform (SEA CLOUD II and SEA CLOUD SPIRIT) offer guests direct access to the sea. The ship’s management team will decide where and when swimming stops will take place; subject to weather conditions and approval from the appropriate authorities. Furthermore, we offer stand-up paddle boards when going ashore on a beach, as well as a towable tube from the gangway.

Wellness and spa: For your own personal comfort, we provide a range of spa services on board the SEA CLOUD II; the SEA CLOUD SPIRIT even features a generous spa and wellness area. All treatments are available at an extra charge.

All prices (see insert) for services offered in this catalogue are current as of June 2021. Prices are subject to change.

Pregnancy and children on board: For safety reasons and due to the limited medical care on board, it is not possible for expectant mothers from their 24th week of pregnancy onward as well as for children under 12 months of age to travel on one of the SEA CLOUDs. Children between the ages of 1 and 18 travel free of charge in their parents’ cabin. Accommodation in a separate cabin is only possible in agreement with the shipping company. In this case, children pay 65% of the advertised travel price.

EU regulation: In accordance with the European regulation concerning the liability of carriers of passengers by sea in the event of accidents, we are under obligation to notify passengers of their rights in the event of an accident at sea. A summary of the provisions can be found at www.seacloud.com/eu-regulation

Terms and Conditions of Travel of the Company SEA CLOUD CRUISES GmbH in its capacity as Tour Organizer for SY SEA CLOUD, SY SEA CLOUD II and SY SEA CLOUD SPIRIT Dear Guest, We hope that you have found the appropriate vacation trip in our program, and we welcome you to the exclusive circle of SEA CLOUD CRUISES GmbH (SCC) guests. Please read the following Information and Conditions carefully so that you will know exactly what you can expect from us. The information and conditions regulate the contractual relationship between you and us, and you shall recognize them with your reservation. We are striving to relieve you of troubles and worries in as far as humanly possible. The delineation of our responsibility is designed to provide clarity regarding what you may expect and our liability. 1. Application and Travel Confirmation 1.1. Via your tour application, you are offering SCC, in a binding manner, the opportunity to close a travel agreement. Your tour registration may transpire in writing. The travel agreement will only become binding from the time that we confirm the reservation and the price to you or your travel agent in writing. 1.2. The applicant is liable for all contractual obligations of other tour participants that he/she registers provided that he/she has expressly confirmed to do so. 1.3. You shall receive a travel confirmation upon conclusion of the contract or without delay thereafter. The confirmation shall contain all essential information regarding travel performances you have reserved, provided that said information does not already follow from the travel brochure. 1.4. All personal data, which you submit to us for handling your trip, is subject to the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act. Data will be protected against improper use. 1.5. If the subject-matter of the confirmation of the holiday deviates from the subject-matter of the booking, then a new offer by SCC is in existence to which it is bound for the duration of 10 days. The contract comes into existence on the basis of this new offer if the traveler declares his/her acceptance to SCC in writing or by payment within the commitment period. 2. Payment 2.1. For voyages with start of the cruise until Dec. 31, 2021 you are required to make a down-payment of 10% per person, for voyages with start of the cruise from Jan. 01, 2022 you are required to make a downpayment of 20% per person within one week following receipt of the travel confirmation and the invoice. The remaining balance shall be due for payment four weeks prior to commencement of travel and before receipt of travel documents (tickets, etc.). The total amount is due for payment as soon as the travel confirmation, invoice and insurance certificate have been received in the event of bookings made when there are four weeks or less remaining before commencement of travel. 2.2. If the traveler is in default with a payment to SCC, SCC can cancel the contract after having issued a reminder with a deadline. In this case SCC can claim cancellation fees in accordance with paragraph 5.3. 2.3. The travel contract will be cancelled automatically if payment is not received by the beginning of travel despite another demand for payment by a certain date having been issued. In this instance, SCC will be entitled to demand corresponding cancellation charges as compensation for damages according to paragraph 5.3. 2.4. The customer is required to bear the cost of ancillary performances, such as acquiring a visa, etc., as well as the costs for reservations or inquiries made by telegraph or telephone. 2.5. All payments must be made directly to the operator specified on the invoice. The travel agency is not authorized to receive payments. Payments to the intermediary travel agency will be made at the traveler’s own risk and will have no debt-discharging effect with respect to the relevant operator should the travel agency fail to forward the payments to the operator specified on the invoice. 3. Performances and Prices 3.1. The scope of contractual performances arises from the services as specified in the offer and in the booking confirmation combined with the catalog valid at the time and the trip description together with all explanations and guidelines contained therein.

3.2. Flights SCC informs the customer about the identity of the airline/s performing flight services during the voyage. In cases where the booking is made at a time when the airline is not known, SCC will tell the customer which airline/s is/are most likely to perform the flight services. As soon as SCC knows for certain which airline/s will be performing the flight services, SCC will inform the customer about the identity of the airline/s. At the very latest, this will be when the detailed travel information is sent. In case the airline changes SCC will inform the customer immediately after the change is known. A list of airlines with an operating ban within the EU can be found here: https://ec.europa.eu/transport/modes/air/safety/air-ban_en. The conditions of carriage of the airlines for whose flights we act as intermediary are binding. We shall be pleased to provide these to you on request. Carriage is booked in the Tourist Class; also in the Business or First Class at extra tariff cost in as far as they are available. Flights on days other than the travel days booked e.g. as a result of pre- or postprograms can lead to extra costs. The airlines always only accept seat reservations as non-binding wishes. 3.3. Luggage conveyance Airlines have different regulations for luggage transport depending on the route and fare. You will receive information on free luggage allowance with the specific flight offer. Excess luggage can in principle be carried at extra cost. Children under the age of two have no claim to luggage conveyance. Please report damage or delays in delivery promptly on the spot to the relevant airline via a Property Irregularity Report (P.I.R.). The report is a prerequisite for any liability. 3.4. Services not used by traveler SCC shall endeavour to obtain reimbursement of saved costs from the service provider if the traveler fails to utilize travel services due to premature return journey and in other significant cases. This shall not apply if services are fully irrelevant or if a refund is opposed by legal or official regulations. SCC is entitled to retain 20% of the refundable amount as compensation for additional effort and expenses. 4. Modification of Services and Prices 4.1. A change of airline company, of aircraft or of the departure and arrival airport may become necessary should an airline cancel a flight and e.g. in the event of failure of the airline to comply with the flight schedule. Right is retained to effect such kind of change or modification in such or similar instances. Only costs, equivalent to a second class railroad journey, will be refunded in the event of substitute transportation. 4.2. Changes in the trip’s itinerary are possible for ship voyages, e.g. in case of floodings or low water level, inclement weather conditions, governmental regulations, travel warning of the German Foreign Office (“Auswärtiges Amt”) if the vessel could not adhere to its schedule at the time that travel commences because of an unforeseen technical defect that causes postponement of the trip itinerary, if the vessel’s management alters the vessel’s course in the interest of passengers’ safety or any other special reason related to the ship travel. In any such cases SCC has the right to make use of other means of transportation such as but not limited to coaches and buses for some routes. 4.3. Any such and comparable divergences from and modifications to individual travel performances contained in the travel agreement, which become necessary after the agreement is closed, and which are not induced by SCC contrary to the principles of good faith and trust, are solely permissible, if they are not substantial and if they do not impede the overall tailored style of the reserved trip. The modified performance shall supersede the performance due under contract. Contingent claims under warranty shall remain unaffected, in as far as substitute performance is flawed. In the event that the overall tailored style of the reserved trip is unreasonably modified due to said substitute performances, then we shall grant you the option to change your reservations, free of charge, or to cancel the travel agreement without paying any fees. SCC shall undertake to immediately inform you of any such divergences or modifications, in as far as possible. 4.4. SCC reserves the right to alter the indicated prices, which have been confirmed on booking, in the case of an increase of transportation costs or of fees for particular services, such as port or airport charges, bunker surcharges, insurance fees or in the case of an alteration of the exchange rates applicable to the holiday in question, to the extent to which this increase has an effect on the price of the holiday per person or per seat, provided more than four months lie between the conclusion of the contract and the stipulated date of the holiday.

219


In the case of a subsequent amendment to the price or of an amendment to an essential travel service, SCC must inform the traveler accordingly without delay. Price increases less than 21 days prior to the start of the voyage are not permitted. In the case of price increases of more than 5% or in the case of a considerable amendment to an essential travel service, the traveler is entitled to withdraw from the tourist travel contract free of charge or to demand participation in a voyage of at least the same value, if SCC is in a position to offer such a voyage from its range of services without additional cost to the traveler. The traveler must assert these rights vis-à-vis SCC within the time frame defined by SCC as part of the notification regarding the price increase or amendment to the travel service. If the traveler does not respond to SCC within the defined time frame or at all, the amendment about which they have been notified will be deemed to have been accepted. The traveler is to be made aware of this within a declaration by SCC via a permanent data medium in a clear, comprehensible and highlighted manner. 5. Changing Reservations, Cancellation, Substitute Persons 5.1. We will endeavor to modify the travel registration (change reservations) subject to availability, at your request, up to 75 days prior to commencementof travel. Any change of reservations made as of the 74th day prior to commencementof travel will require you to serve notice that you are cancelling the reservedtrip, and it will require subsequent re-registration. This shall not apply for re-quested changes of reservations that solely cause substantiated, minor expenses. Modification of the travel date, the travel destination, accommodations or the means of transportation shall apply as a change of reservations. In general, regardless of the year of travel and the booking period, all trips can be REBOOKED FREE OF CHARGE up to 75 days prior to the start of the trip. 5.2. You may cancel your trip in writing at any time prior to commencement of travel. Your cancellation notice shall become effective on the date we receive it. If we receive your notice out of office hours (Monday to Friday 9-17h CET), your notice shall become effective on the next working day (except Saturday). 5.3. If one of the parties cancels the contract or if you do not start the journey, SCC may demand reasonable compensation for arrangements it has made in conjunction with the trip and for its expenses, even if SCC has not yet confirmed the trip or if you fail to begin the journey. Our flat rate claim to reimbursement exists in case of cancellation of a reserved trip as follows: For trips with start of the cruise until December 31, 2021 25 EUR per person

Costs that the service provider charges to SCC, e.g., empty bed fee charged by a hotel for cancellation at short notice or special fees for cruises, shall be additionally invoiced in the event that individual or group trips are annulled. The traveler is free to prove to SCC that SCC has no loss or that the loss is less than the aforementioned flat rate. In this case the lower proven loss will be applied in place of the flat. SCC reserves the right to charge reimbursement fees beyond the flat rates mentioned above. In this case SCC has to verify and prove the loss, taking any expenses that have been saved and/or any other potential uses for the travel services into consideration. 5.4. You may appoint a substitute person for yourself up to commencement of travel. In such case you are required to inform the tour organizer thereof. The tour organizer may object to any such substitute person on the basis of good cause, (e.g., special requirements linked to the trip, statutory bans, refusal by airlines or by hotel operators, etc.). If a third party enters into the contract, then he or she and the registrant are jointly and severally liable in respect of SCC for the price of the holiday and for additional costs incurred through the entry of the third party. SCC may only demand that additional costs be refunded if they are actually and reasonably incurred. SCC must provide the traveler with evidence of the amount of additional costs incurred through the entry of the third party. 5.5. Cancellation fees and fees for changing reservations are due for immediate payment. 6. Cancellation and Rescission of Agreement by the Tour Organizer 6.1. SCC may rescind the travel agreement after commencement of travel, without complying with a term of notice, if travelers persistently disturb execution of the trip despite an appropriate warning issued by the tour organizer. The same shall apply if anyone should behave in a manner which is gravely in breach of contract and justifies the immediate cancellation. In addition SCC has the right to cancel the travel contract without notice if in the captain’s opinion the traveler is unfit for travel due to illness, physical disability or for any other reason or if the traveler requires special assistance but is travelling without this assistance or if the trip has been booked based on incorrect information. SCC shall, however, after cancellation retain its claim to the tour price. Furthermore, SCC may withdraw from the contract without notice prior to the commencement of travel or terminate the travel contract after the commencement of travel if the traveler is in the 24th or a later week of pregnancy at the time of commencement of travel or reaches the 24th week of pregnancy during travel. In this case, transportation on board the SY SEA CLOUD, SY SEA CLOUD ii and SY SEA CLOUD SPIRIT is excluded for safety reasons and due to the limited medical care on board. If the pregnancy was not known at the time of travel booking, SCC will reimburse the travel price already paid if SCC is informed of the pregnancy immediately after it becomes known. Otherwise, SCC reserves the right to claim the travel price after termination or withdrawal from the contract. Pregnant women who are less than 24 weeks pregnant at the commencement of travel must present a certificate of fitness to travel issued by a medical specialist, confirming the travel area. For safety reasons, children may only travel on board the ships if they are at least one year old; in the event that the traveler is traveling with a child who is under one year old at the time of departure, SCC may withdraw from the contract prior to departure without notice or terminate the travel contract after departure; the claim for payment of the travel price remains valid. The person causing the disturbance is liable for any possible extra cost for return transportation. However, SCC is required to allow credit for the value of saved costs as well as for advantages which may be obtained


from another application of services not used, including possible reimbursements from service providers. 6.2. SCC may withdraw from the cruise up to 30 days prior to the start of the cruise if a minimum number of participants is not reached, provided that (a) SCC has informed the customer of the required minimum number of participants and the later withdrawal deadline prior to the conclusion of the respective travel contract and (b) the minimum number of participants and the latest withdrawal deadline are clearly stated in the travel confirmation. The time of withdrawal depends on the receipt of the withdrawal declaration by the customer. In case the cruise cannot be realized or can only be realized with a smaller numbers of passenger due to governmental regulations or due to other unavoidable, extraordinary circumstances, SCC can withdraw from the cruise before the start of the cruise and has to declare the withdrawal to the customer immediately after becoming aware of the reason for withdrawal. Your paid tour price will be immediately, latest after 14 days, refunded. 7. Rescission of the Contract due to unavoidable, exceptional Circumstances SCC or the traveler may both rescind the travel agreement if the trip or the carriage to the destination is rendered considerably difficult, endangered or impeded due to un-avoidable, exceptional circumstances such as but not limited to an Act of Providence, (e.g., war, internal unrest, natural catastrophes that endanger safe travels to the destination) or in case of material risks for the health because of the outbreak of serious diseases at the destination. SCC shall immediately refund the paid tour price in such instance, latest after 14 days. 8. Liability 8.1. We shall bear liability within the scope of the due diligence of a prudent businessman: 8.1.1. for conscientious preparation of the trip; 8.1.2. for careful selection and monitoring of service providers, (e.g., transportation corporations, hotel operators, etc.); 8.1.3. for due and proper rendering of contractually covenanted tour performances, under consideration of applicable legal provisions of the respective country and place of destination. 8.2. However, we are not liable for information contained in hotel and local site brochures. We have no influence on their origin. We also bear no liability if national political conditions and contingent entry regulations change at the point of destination, after this brochure is printed, that encumber entry into the affected country or point of destination or which render the same infeasible. We shall inform you at short notice of any such essential, subsequent changes, in as far as possible. 8.3. We are liable for the fault of a person entrusted with rendering a service, unless otherwise stipulated under these Terms and Conditions of Travel or stipulated by prevailing conditions, and provided that the person entrusted to render service had caused an instance of damage not only upon the occasion of performing contract. The measure of indebted diligence shall be determined by conditions at the site of service rendered. Your tour will primarily take you to foreign countries, where foreign living conditions and where laws and local safety standards, that are partially foreign to us, prevail. 8.4. Warranty 8.4.1. The traveler may demand relief if the tour is not performed in compliance with contract. SCC may refuse relief if it necessitates disproportionate expense. 8.4.2. After returning from the tour, the traveler may demand reduction of the tour price, commensurate with reduced performance, in the event that the demand for relief was unsuccessful and the trip was not performed in compliance with contract. This shall not affect contingent, more extensive claims for subsequent reduction of the tour price. 8.4.3. The traveler may rescind the travel agreement if the tour organizer failed to perform relief, within a reasonable term, or if the tour organizer formally states that relief cannot be performed, and if the trip will be considerably impaired due to performance of services under noncompliance with contract. If the agreement is rescinded in this manner, then SCC is obligated to take appropriate measures, and especially to provide return transportation for travelers, if required. 8.5. The traveler may demand compensation for damages, and more precisely for vacation time spent to no avail, provided that the tour organizer is liable for a circumstance that caused a flaw in the tour. 8.6. Restriction of liability 8.6.1. The tour operator’s contractual liability is limited to three times the tour price, provided that damages sustained by the traveler are not caused by intent or gross negligence. The same applies in as far as the tour organizer is responsible for damages incurred by a traveler solely through the fault of a service provider. 8.6.2. The tour organizer is not liable for defective performances that arise in conjunction with services mediated as third party performances

(e.g., sporting events, attendance at theaters, exhibitions, etc.), provided these services are expressly identified as third party performances in the brochure and the booking confirmation by giving the name and the address of the third parties. It must be clearly recognizable for the customer that these third party performances are not part of the package tour by SCC. 8.6.3. A claim to damage against SCC as tour organizer is restricted or excluded, if – under legal provisions applicable to required, rendered performances of a service provider – a claim for damage against a service provider may solely be asserted under certain conditions or limitations or if such claim is excluded under certain conditions. 8.6.4. If SCC assumes a position equivalent to a freight carrier, then his liability shall be regulated by the provisions of the Air Transportation Act in conjunction with conventions covenanted in Warsaw, The Hague, Guadalajara and the Montreal Agreement (solely for flights to Canada and the USA). As a rule, the Warsaw Convention limits the freight carrier’s liability for death or physical injury and for loss and damage of luggage. If the tour organizer constitutes a service provider, in other instances, then he shall bear liability in accordance with provisions that apply for a service provider. 8.6.5. If SCC assumes a position equivalent to a carrier, within the scope of sea voyages, then his liability shall be regulated in compliance with provisions of the Commercial Code and the Inland Waterways Transportation Act. 8.7. Duty to cooperate, complaints 8.7.1. In the event of defective performance, each traveler is required to undertake whatever may be reasonably expected of him/her to contribute to alleviate the defect and to keep any potential damages to a minimum. 8.7.2. If you should have reason for complaints, contrary to our expectations, then immediately inform our tour management on site. If a respective local tour manager or tour agent is not available or cannot be reached, or if they cannot alleviate a defective performance, then please turn to the service provider (transfer company, hotel operator) and/or the tour organizer or to his contact address in the area of destination. A traveler is not entitled to claims if he/she culpably fails to perform the above obligations. The only time this does not apply is if reporting a complaint is clearly futile or unreasonable for other reasons. The customer will, however, be informed about the availability of the tour manager or SCC in the service description – at the latest when they receive the travel documents. 8.7.3. Tour guides are not authorized to formally recognize any claims whatsoever. 9. Exclusion of Claims and Statute of Limitation 9.1. If the baggage is damaged, lost or delayed during the travel by air, the passenger must write and complain to the relevant air carrier in loco as soon as possible with undue delay. The airlines and SCC may refuse to grant a refund due to international conventions if the claims notification therefor is not completed in time. The claims need to be asserted within seven days in case of loss of luggage and within 21 days after receipt of luggage in case of delay. 9.2. The traveler must assert claims under §§ 651 c to f BGB (German Civil Code) within a month after the contractual date of return. 9.3. All claims arising from the travel agreement as well as claims based on injury to life, limb or health due to intentional or negligent breach of duty of SCC shall lapse two years following the contractually covenanted date of return. 9.4. The statue of limitations is suspended if SCC initially states to you that complaints and claims are being examined. The suspension is lifted when the tour organizer informs the customer of the results of his examination with regard to the customer’s claims. 10. Insurance Coverage 10.1. You are insured against transportation risk during flights, within the scope of lawful provisions. 10.2. For your own safety, we recommend that you take out a travel insurance policy that includes cancellation, interruption, health, luggage, accident and liability coverage. 11. Passport, Visa, Customs, Foreign Exchange and Health Regulations 11.1. You will receive essential information on the formalities required for your trip along with the travel offer. This information will be conveyed along with travel documents and through the travel description contained in the catalog. Please heed this information, as each traveler is himself/herself responsible for compliance with these regulations. You shall bear all costs and the negative impact of failure to comply with said information. 11.2. You have to ensure that your passport, which you will require for your trip, is still valid, for a period of six months beyond the planned

221


travel date. Children require a children’s passport which is appropriate to the respective destination. This information applies for German citizens. Foreign nationals and holders of foreign passports are requested to turn to their relevant consulate or embassy for appropriate information. 11.3. You are liable to SCC for all consequences and damages, especially penalties, fees and expenses, that must be paid or deposited as a result of your failure to follow applicable regulations for entry into, exit out of or transit through a country, or if in case you have not provided the necessary documents or not provided them in the prescribed manner. You are obliged to immediately reimburse any funds that SCC must pay or deposit. 11.4. SCC is not liable for the necessary visas being granted or provided in time by the relevant diplomatic body with the exception of instances when SCC has been instructed to arrange them unless SCC has culpably failed to fulfil its own obligations. 12. General Remarks 12.1. Major printing errors and computational errors in the brochure or on the travel confirmation shall entitle SCC to avoid the validity of the travel agreement. In such instance, SCC is required to compensate the traveler for the proven loss incurred by relying on a declaration. 12.2. All information in our tour description corresponds to the current status of information at the time of printing. 12.3. Invalidity of individual provisions of the travel agreement shall not result in inva-lidity of the entire travel agreement. The same shall apply for these same Terms and Conditions of Travel. 12.4. Oral agreements are only valid if we have confirmed them in writing. 12.5. The conditions of the respective shipowner or transportation corporation shall apply in the event of travel by ship, combined air and ship travel, combined train and ship travel and for bus trips. We will provide you with a copy of their conditions upon request. 12.6. German law is solely applicable to the contractual relationship between the traveler and SCC. 12.7. The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is deemed venue for courts of law for all registered businessmen, and for persons who do not have a domestic place of jurisdiction, as well as for persons who moved their place of residence or usual abode to a foreign country, after closing the travel agreement, or whose place of residence or usual abode is not known at the time that a suit is filed, and for litigation as a defendant. 12.8. SCC does not participate in the voluntary procedure for alternative dispute resolution for customer disputes in accordance with the Customer Dispute Resolution Law (Verbraucherstreitbeilegungsgesetz) and is not obliged to do so. 12.9.
