SEA CLOUD CRUISES

Sea Cloud Cruises is a Kiel-based cruise company in Germany, managed by Daniel Schaefer (CEO). For over 40 years, SEA CLOUD CRUISES ships have sailed off the beaten tourist track treating other cultures with respect. As well as popular destinations, they find smaller, more individual harbours.

The beat of the wind and waves determines the rhythm and direction of life on board. Under arched sails, the values of classic seamanship are in the foreground.
