A few facts and stories about the sailing ship we are enjoying for 7 days and nights. Sea Cloud II was launched in 2001. She has a main mast of 174' and a length of 384' – she is the world's largest 3 masted barque. She is one of only two cruise ships sailed “by hands” in the world. She has 24 sails with over 30,000 square feet of sail area. There are 47 cabins with capacity for only 94 people . . . . during this “crossing” there are only 68 on board. All bathrooms are have marble counter tops and shower or baths. There are 4 decks : Sun Deck, where the bridge is also located, Lido Deck (where the two owner's suites are located) where the Lido Bar, Lounge and Library are located, the Promenade Deck (most of the cabins including ours are on this deck) where the Restaurant, Purser, Reception and Boutique are located and Cabin Deck (where balance of cabins are located) and the sauna is located. Sea Cloud II is registed to Malta.
