Voyage aboard a ship that stands out from the crowd. Golden Horizon is the world’s largest square-rigged sailing vessel, modelled on a traditional basque from the early 1900s. Its clipper-style sails immediately call to mind seafaring adventures of old, whilst its interior brims with the contemporary comforts one expects of a modern, luxury cruise ship.
Golden Horizon accommodates up to 272 passengers across its four guest decks. Each of the 140 cabins affords ocean views, whilst deluxe cabins and suites boast private balconies.
You will find ample on board to keep you active or relaxed. Polish your scuba skills in the deep-dive pool – one of three swimming pools – guided by the resident diving master. Participate in fitness and yoga sessions held up on the scenic Sun Deck, or work up a sweat in the gym. If it’s serenity you seek, sample from the spa’s menu of treatments, or find a good book in the library. There are even opportunities to learn the ropes on deck, should you wish, including setting the sails and tightening the rigging. The vessel’s marina platform allows you to make the most of the ocean throughout your cruise, with readily available water sports equipment.
Golden Horizon’s drinking and dining options are also first-class. Clink glasses in the three bars, and enjoy a daily full-service dinner served in the spectacular two-storey dining room.
Operated by Tradewind Voyages, Golden Horizon sweeps guests away to some of the most spectacular destinations reachable by sea. Itineraries include visits to the remote islands of the Indian Ocean, the ancient ports of southern Europe and North Africa, and – perhaps closer to home – the coastal idylls of the British Isles.
