Setting sail from Willemstad

The gabled houses of Willemstad lend an undeniably Dutch feel to the capital of little Curaçao, with a splash of Caribbean colour thrown in. The island itself is not your typical lush tropical paradise - the landscape is characterised instead by thorny shrubs and cacti - but there are some fantastic beaches and quaint little villages.

Arriving in Colón

Situated at the Atlantic entrance to the Panama Canal, Colón takes its name from Christopher Columbus, known in Spanish as Cristóbal Colón, although it's hard to imagine the famous explorer would find much reason to linger here nowadays. Once a thriving port, the city is now in a state of seemingly terminal decline, its colonial architecture crumbling and the modern city beset by social problems. It's not somewhere you will want to hang around for long, and serves merely as a gateway to the Canal, which will carry you to much nicer places.

Our tip

The wildlife in the region is amazing, particularly the birds, so if you have the slightest interest then extend your stay in Panama.

The Ship

Your home form home

Introduced to accompany Sea Cloud I, this three-masted barque tall ship enjoys the amenities of a modern cruise ship whilst remaining a quintessential windjammer.

What we love

A true sailing ship, Sea Cloud II has all of the tradition of the ship that inspired her, the original Sea Cloud. Suites and cabins have the feel of a traditional country home and on deck you can relax and watch the crew set sail, a wonderful spectacle that is much more than just a show.
