I'm a Futourist

Daniel Schäfer Managing Director SEA CLOUD CRUISES GmbH and Board of FEINE PRIVATHOTELS e.V.

because traveling in harmony with people and nature has been a common practice on our cruises for decades. Sailing as an environmentally friendly drive system, traveling away from the frequented routes, respect for people and nature in the regions visited - we have been successful with this for decades and are more contemporary than ever. And we prove that cruise tourism can also be environmentally friendly.


Since it was founded in 1979, SEA CLOUD CRUISES has set standards for sustainable sea voyages that are still unsurpassed today. Our almost 90-year-old four-masted barque SEA CLOUD and the SEA CLOUD II, which went into service in 2001, are the successful counter-model to mass tourism at sea. We consciously combine traditional seamanship with the luxurious charm of classically elegant private yachts. With our new SEA CLOUD SPIRIT we have remained true to the principle of “small and fine”. For our guests this means an extraordinary travel experience and the individual experience that sustainability can be a gain, not a sacrifice.
