Enchanting scenery and charming harbour towns – the stunning islands of Sardinia, Corsica and Elba.

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 became
known in the 1960s through the Aga Khan, who protected the coast from architectural eye-sores whilst preserving the area’s natural beauty and creating stylish, picturesque holiday resorts.

The natural bay 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.

Alghero: Sardinia’s “Little Barcelona”
Following the Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, Saracen pirates and the Genoese, Alghero was conquered in
1354 by the Catalans. Many inhabitants still speak Catalan today and they lovingly refer to their city as
“Little Barcelona”. A gentle stroll along the walkway that crowns Alghero's impressive sea walls promises
majestic views of the picturesque harbour on one side and the Gothic old town on the other.

Charming Corsica: Saint Florent and Nebbio
Whilst the harbour town of Saint Florent with its luxury yachts reminds of some of the hallmarks of St Tropez, in the winding alleys of its rustic old town, you will encounter true Corsican charm. The delightful town of Saint Florent is the capital of the fertile Nebbio region, stunning views of which can be enjoyed from the black tower overlooking the small village of Nonza.
Guests arrive individually in Civitavecchia. Embarkation on the SEA CLOUD. All roads lead to Rome. The stunningly beautiful city on the Tiber is around 70 kilometres (44 miles) from the port of Civitavecchia. The highlights of the "Eternal City" are not limited to the seven hills of antiquity. The historic centre and the Vatican State in Rome are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In the city of Vespas and "la dolce vita", painters, sculptors and architects have left behind innumerable works of art over three millennia. Ancient sites, Renaissance palaces, Baroque squares and fountains create a splendid backdrop for enjoying life in between the daily routine and eternity.
In the 1960s, it was Prince Aga Khan who discovered the beauty of this wildly romantic landscape with the evocative name of Costa Smeralda. He preserved its natural beauty, saved it from overdevelopment and transformed it into an idyllic and elegant holiday resort. The sea glows in all shades green from turquoise to emerald and sandy bays nestle picturesquely. Together with idiosyncratic granite formations and rugged rocks, these still form the ravishingly beautiful natural backdrop. The elegant town of Porto Cervo, with numerous megayachts in its luxurious marina, has established itself as a centre for the international jet set and embodies the legend of the Costa Smeralda. Optional Excursion - Costa Smeralda and Porto Cervo.
The chalk cliffs are visible even from a long way away and fall away steeply into the sea like a wall - around 70 metres (230 foot) high. Hidden behind them is a fjord-like inlet, which provides the beautiful entrance into the natural harbour of Bonifacio. The elegant modern lower town is set around the harbour with a promenade that runs the length of the deep harbour bay and leads to the elegant marina. More than 187 stone steps, majestically named the "Staircase of the King of Aragon", lead you up to the medieval upper town which sits lofty and impregnable high up on the top of a steep chalk cliff.
A beach edged by dunes not far from the port, beautiful beachside promenades and, on a headland, the old town of Alghero which sits defiantly behind thick fortifications. Alghero is something very special. Many buildings and squares in the charming old town were built when it was ruled by the Catalans and some of the inhabitants still speak a dialect of Catalan today. That's why the town is also lovingly known as "Little Barcelona". Grand palaces, numerous churches and towers, winding lanes and lively squares with snug bars and restaurants transport you into the Middle Ages with a Catalan-Gothic character. Optional Excursion - Impressions of Sardinia.
Optional Excursion - Nebbio and the village of Nonza.
Although Elba is only a small Tuscan island, you will be surprised by how diverse it is. Imposing cliffs, white sandy beaches, avenues of cypresses, vineyards and olive groves, traditional villages and elegant beach resorts make the place of Napoleon's exile somewhere you would in fact like to be banished for longer. The beautiful old town of Portoferraio with its narrow streets of steps and medieval fortress is set high up on a rocky headland. In the enchanting town of Porto Azzurro, the palm-lined promenades, charming piazzas and small beach are at the centre of the town's activities. Optional Island tour.
Disembarkation. Guests return home individually.
Itinerary subject to change! Optional excursions are not included in the rate.

Sea Cloud

Vessel Type: Tall Ship (Sailing)

Length: 109 metres

Passenger Capacity: 64

Built / refurbished: 1931 / 2011

Sea Cloud is a ship with a soul, imbued by the original owners, Marjorie Merriweather Post and her husband E.F. Hutton in the 1930’s. The ship has played host to royalty, known service in wartime, and sailed the world over. She is a vessel of incomparable grace that harks back to the golden age of ship travel. Once you’ve been on Sea Cloud under full sail, you’ll begin your own love affair.

Welcome aboard a legend 
Sea Cloud accommodates 58 guests in 28 outside cabins including two original owner’s suites that still feature original marble baths and fireplaces. At 360 feet she is an expansive ship with extensive public spaces on the top deck, where we luxuriate in deck chairs and watch the crew of 18 go aloft in the web of riggings to hand-set her 30 sails. Her dining room is hung with marine oil paintings of the period and accommodates all guests at once for a single seating. We’ll gather in the lounge each evening for Recap. Life aboard is a uniquely pleasing mix of elegance and informality—a return to the golden age of sailing in shorts and deck shoes. You’ll find all shipboard services impeccable. 

Discover the romance of tall ship sailing
Experience something many people don’t know exists in the 21st century—the romance of life under square sails. Discover the thrill of standing on deck as Sea Cloud gently glides through the water, her crew aloft in the riggings, running out and reefing sails. Settle in to your favorite areas on the top deck and bask in the incomparable experience of traveling aboard the finest tall ship to ever sail the seas. Lose yourself in an adventure that, in this day and age, is almost unimaginable.

Please note deck and suite plans are indicative only and may vary slightly.
