Sail away on the world's largest square rigged sailing ship

by The Cruise Village 16 Oct 2020 04:00 PDT

Sail away on the world's largest square rigged sailing ship on her inaugural season from May 2021, with voyages from the UK.

The world's largest square-rigged sailing ship, Golden Horizon, will start offering ex-UK voyages from May to August 2021.

The philosophy is simple and unique; using the winds and the currents to follow the sun, offering guests a sustainable and luxurious way to visit magical beaches and port destinations.

The luxurious ship will carry up to 272 passengers and operate, under charter, to the new brand Tradewind Voyages. Golden Horizon is a near replica of the 1913-built ocean vessel France II and will retain its historic charm.

A highlight of the first season will be a British Maritime voyage, with the ship anchoring off Cowes for the traditional Regatta fireworks display.

In total, nine voyages will be offered from the UK with seven departures from Harwich and two from Glasgow. Northern European itineraries will feature Denmark, Iceland, the Norwegian Fjords and the Baltics.

In September 2021, Golden Horizon will sail to the other side of the world, taking guests on an adventure that will include some beautiful and rarely visited islands along with unique and iconic destinations.

Initially, she will travel east through the Suez Canal and follow the historic Maritime Silk Route to Jakarta, and on to Bali. Itineraries in late 2021 and into 2022 will feature Australia, the Indian Ocean, Japan, Alaska, the Americas and the Pacific Islands.

Golden Horizon will allow guests to explore the world and the oceans in a more sustainable way. Uniquely, all her voyages are planned on the basis of the prevailing winds and currents around the world, often following the traditional trading routes; a real maritime experience.

The ship will offer outstanding food and service and will appeal to active adults who want to travel the world in a new way. There will be a sophisticated enrichment and wellbeing programme and, for those who wish, the opportunity to take advantage of various complementary water sports available from its marina.

Pre-sale is open until 28 October - Book with Confidence (Flexible Covid Booking Conditions). Secure your place onboard and Call The Cruise Village on 0800 810 8265 or visit https://thecruisevillage.com/tradewind for more information, itineraries & fares.
