Sea Cloud Cruises will be taking firm bookings for the new Sea Cloud Spirit. Following careful inspection of the current status of the new build, the cruise company is convinced that “the Sea Cloud Spirit will be delivered on time,” announced CEO Daniel Schäfer. On August 29, 2020 the 452.7 feet (138 meter) long new ship will start its maiden voyage from Lisbon to Rome/Civitavecchia (Italy). Sea Cloud Cruises has extended the deadline until January 31, 2020 for the early booking discount for all voyages on the Sea Cloud Spirit.

Building upscale yachts today can be compared to building modern airplanes. “This was the case with building our new windjammer the Sea Cloud Spirit, where the highest standards applied in both comfort and sustainability,” noted Schäfer. The three-masted yacht will hold 136 guests, and is the first new built for the line since the Sea Cloud II in 2001. In the building process there is always the risk of delays. “In the interest of our guests, we wanted to be sure she would be delivered on time before starting official bookings,” mentioned Schäfer.

Early Booking Discount Extended until January 31

Since 1979, Sea Cloud Cruises has been one of the world’s top names in cruises. The Sea Cloud, celebrates her 90th birthday in 2021, and its younger sister Sea Cloud II, regularly appear with five stars each in the Berlitz Cruise Guide’s list and ranks under the best five cruise ships in the world.
