Sea Cloud II

Barcelona to Nice Short Cruise

The Sea Cloud II combines the timeless elegance of windjammers of the past with the highest safety standards and the luxurious comfort of modern ships. She is the world's largest three-masted barque, the first newly constructed square rigger in decades. Since her launch in 2001 she has shared with her sister ship “the Sea Cloud” the honor of being the world's only cruise ship sailed by hand. The cabins and suites have the richest fabrics, woods and fine furniture. On board facilities include the exquisite restaurant, beautiful lounge, popular Lido bar on the sun deck, library and fitness centre.





Embark the ship in Barcelona.

Day 1: Barcelona

Today you will board the Sea Cloud II in Barcelona, where you will settle into your luxury cabins and enjoy your first dinner aboard the ship.

Day 2: Collioure

Arrive at the small port town of Collioure, France. Discover the tiny chapel on the rock, a picturesque fortified church and the mighty Château Royal. Collioure is a textbook example of a charming fishing village that has always attracted painters and poets thanks to its idyllic coastal location, colourful facades and fascinating light.

Day 3: Sète

Today you will visit Sète, known as the Little Venice of the Languedoc region due to its position by a lagoon and its colourful facades, the canals and bridges. You may join an optional city tour with oyster tasting.

Day 4: Antibes

Arrive at the popular chic seaside town of Antibes with its attractive old town and wide promenades along the seafront. From here you may join an optional excursion to Saint-Paul-de-Vence which is brimming with galleries, cafés and artists’ studios framed by vine-covered walls from the 13th century – Saint-Paul-deVence, a paradise for art lovers and romantics.

Day 5: Antibes

Your short voyage ends in Antibes where you will disembark the ship.


Disembark the ship in Nice.
