One of the results is the delicious chocolate specialties for which Modica is known.

Verdura is the culmination of Sir Rocco Forte’s dream of creating europe’s finest golf destination.

September 22: Valletta, Malta – Home

We bid farewell to Sea Cloud II and her crew as we disembark and transfer to the Valletta Airport for return flights home.

Sea Cloud II

Sea Cloud II

 The SEA CLOUD II can be recognised as the true sister ship of the legendary SEA CLOUD, but has its own, very unique character. It combines the high standards expected of a modern cruise ship with the unique atmosphere of a romantic tall ship.

A windjammer gives you that feeling of boundless freedom – a feeling that reaches its pinnacle as you sail the seas under open skies. But this is a feeling that pervades the SEA CLOUD II at all times, manifested in the on-board lifestyle and forged by the expansive space of the four decks, the relaxed social atmosphere and the space for private contemplation.
