Spanish and French Rivieras: Barcelona to Nice aboard Sea Cloud II
About the Journey
Explore the treasures of the Spanish and French Rivieras, from the romantic Roman ruins at Arles to the art nouveau architecture of Gaudí’s Barcelona and the landscapes that inspired Picasso and Cézanne. Begin with three nights at Barcelona’s five-star El Palace Hotel, then enjoy the unparalleled experience of cruising aboard one of the world’s finest sailing vessels, the Sea Cloud II, with an itinerary carefully designed to maximize your time under sail. Call at Figueres, Arles, and Marseille before disembarking in Nice.

Hotel El Palace Barcelona, Spain
Since opening its doors in 1919 as the former Ritz of Barcelona, El Palace has played host to monarchs, aristocrats, artists, musicians, and more. Located in a historic building in the center of Barcelona, this five-star hotel offers five restaurants and bars, a spa, and one of the largest and most exclusive rooftop gardens in the city.
Sea Cloud II
The iconic Sea Cloud II is perhaps the most luxurious three-masted sailing yacht on the seas today. Like Marjorie Merriweather Post’s legendary Sea Cloud, she combines the seafaring elegance of a bygone era with the highest modern standards of luxury. In the grand tradition of the world’s finest sailing vessels, guests can experience this marvelous ship under sail as the skilled crew hand-sets over 30,000 square feet of canvas. The Sea Cloud II offers an intimate setting of just 47 beautifully appointed cabins, gracious common areas, world-class service, and five-star dining.
