Europe Mediterranean Cruise

Isles of Antiquity: Malta, Sardinia & the Balearic Sea Aboard Sea Cloud

Board the elegant Sea Cloud for a western Mediterranean cruise along storied coasts and islands. Discover seven vibrant Mediterranean islands the way they were meant to be seen—aboard a spectacular tall-masted sailing ship.

As the ship plies the turquoise waters, take time to enjoy life at full sail, wake up in a new picturesque port every day, stroll through lively harbors and charming old towns, and climb the bastions of hilltop castles for sweeping Mediterranean views. This region is rich in ancient history—from Sicily’s Valley of the Temples to Gozo’s ancient temples of Ġgantija—and your onboard experts will contextualize the prehistoric structures which provide insight into the ways of life of the Romans, Carthaginians, Byzantines and other populations that have seen their civilizations rise and fall here.

Discover the romance of tall ship sailing aboard the legendary 58-guest Sea Cloud, a vessel of unmatched elegance and grace and a direct descendant of the opulent 30’s. Enjoy her golden age ambiance informally—in casual clothes and in the company of expert historians and naturalists. Sea Cloud’s polished brass capstans and portholes gleam, teak decks glow and interiors shine with Italian marble and carved oak paneling.
