Coastal Gems of Croatia and Slovenia aboard Sea Cloud II
Under the billowing sails of a tall ship, voyage back in time to medieval walled cities like Hvar, a picturesque reminder of the great Venetian empire. Sail along idyllic archipelagos like the 80 forested islands of Kornati National Park, and from the ample decks of Sea Cloud II, take in the beauty of this storied coastline and the sparkling sapphire Adriatic Sea. Along Croatia’s scenic coast and in Slovenia’s lively capital Ljubljana, visit castles and monasteries, walk through the enchanting old towns of Korčula and Rovinj, and sample regional specialties such as peka (stew) and wine. Days will be balanced with guided explorations, time to relish our ship under sail, and free time to walk in charming seaside villages like Komiža.

Sea Cloud II
Sail in style aboard a unique vessel that’s a perfect combination of nostalgic elegance and modern comfort
Sea Cloud II is an alluring sailing vessel perfectly suited to travel the scenic shores of Italy and Croatia, exploring little-seen archipelagos and anchoring in small coves.

From marble bathrooms and elegant furnishings to televisions and climate controls, comfortable cabins have expected amenities.
