Owner’s Suite aboard the 64-passenger four-masted barque Sea Cloud.
SEA CLOUD was built in 1931 as the Hussar by E.F. Hutton for his wealthy socialite wife, Marjorie Merriweather Post. Her personal suite is the museum-like 410-square-foot No. 1, with Louis XIV-style furniture and a white Carrera marble bathroom with gold-plated faucets. Suite No. 2 was Hutton’s, and it’s 366 square feet with wood paneling, antique nightstands and similar opulent bathroom.
If you decide to occupy the owners’ suites, it will cost you $1,190 per day to hang your clothes in Marjorie’s armoire or read the latest stock market reports while lounging by E. F. Hutton’s working fireplace. At the other end of the scale, a really small though excellently well appointed cabin (category 6) for two will cost you $486 per day. Air, land accommodations and land excursions are not included. It is worth noting that Sea Cloud does not dock in U.S. ports because her hardwood decks and the exotic woods used in her interior furnishings do not meet stringent U.S. fire standards, so you will have to fly to Antigua, British Virgin Islands to catch up with her. An idiotic prohibition when you consider this is probably the most luxurious cruise ship operating today. A yacht for 64 lucky and fortunate souls willing to pay for the best!
LUXURY CLASS – the top cruise lines for those that want the best…
Regent Seven Seas - our top rated cruise line overall is something similar to the great liners of the past. Regent is a newcomer to the luxury cruise market segment but they have brought three stunning new ships into the market that have surpassed the old leader, Crystal. Regent is owned by the same Scandinavian company that owns the moderate priced Regent Hotel chain, but do not be misled by their hotel target market.
