Sea Cloud Spirit to Explore Caribbean, Central America, and Canary Islands Winter 2023-2024

Sea Cloud Cruises’ Sea Cloud Spirit will visit the Caribbean, Central America, and the Canary Islands from Winter 2023 through Spring 2024!

The 16-night transatlantic voyage will embark from Gran Canaria and dock at Saint Maarten on November 11, 2024! 

The ship will then voyage through the Caribbean, visiting lesser-known ports like Bequia, Union Island, and Iles des Saintes. The route includes transiting the Panama Canal and exploring the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico before returning to Europe and Gran Canaria. Sea Cloud Spirit will hoist its 28 sails by hand during the journey, dedicating one full sailing day to each itinerary.

Sea Cloud Spirit was meticulously designed to pay homage to the original Sea Cloud, celebrating an era of luxurious glamor in travel and with all the modern comforts today’s discerning travelers desire.” said Mirell Reyes, president of Sea Cloud Cruises. “We look forward to the Sea Cloud Spirit soon arriving in St. Maarten to welcome her guests for the winter sailing season, exploring these treasured regions with masterfully crafted itineraries following the trade winds and away from the busy cruise routes.”
