Maiden voyage of Sea Cloud Spirit scheduled for April 2021
On April 22, 2021, the new Sea Cloud Cruises sailing vessel will be cruising with guests from Palma de Mallorca for the first time.
The 452.7-feett (138-meter) full-rigged three-mast ship will also be called in advance in Palma and then put into service.
She blends an exclusive private yacht environment with conventional sailing skills to create an extraordinary travel experience, much like her sister ships, the Sea Cloud and Sea Cloud II.
The ship, which holds a maximum of 136 guests, is a modern version of a legend that started in 1931 with the Sea Cloud, according to a press release.
Balcony cabins, which were previously only available for much larger motor vessels, are one highlight of the new building. Maiden voyage guests will be the first to experience the new concept, which includes not only the spacious balcony cabins, but also a separate spa and relaxation area and a sea-view fitness center.
The maiden voyage is planned to be a "Tour of Spain." for ten days. The Sea Cloud Spirit will start from Palma and head to destinations like Barcelona, Tarragona and Valencia. The path will then sail back to Palma via the Balearic Islands.
The Sea Cloud Spirit is currently being completed at the Metalships & Docks shipyard in Vigo, Spain. The 28 sails have already been attached, with a total area of 44,100 square feet (4,100 square meters).
The shipyard team and specialists from Germany and all over Europe are now working on the luxury sailing ship's interior finishing. The ship will be handed over to the shipping company in the first quarter of 2021, following lengthy sea trials, and will be christened shortly before its maiden voyage to the port of Palma de Mallorca.
