Golden Horizon

The world’s largest square-rigged sailing ship, Golden Horizon, is a new vessel in service for cruise operator, Tradewind Voyages. The 5-masted Golden Horizon offers cruises in Europe, Australasia, the Indian Ocean and a full navigation of the Maritime Silk Route.

A near-replica of the 1913-built France II, Golden Horizon offers capacity for no more than 272 guests. It combines the onboard luxuries of a small cruise ship with charm, romance and adventure of the historic 19th and 20th-century clippers.

Golden Horizon Cabins & Accommodation

The accommodation aboard Golden Horizon combines Tradewind Voyages’ traditional maritime leanings with the highest standards of contemporary luxury. The dark wood furnishings contrast nicely with the white bed linen, while the spacious bathrooms benefit from large mirrors and gold fixings.

Golden Horizon also offers accommodation with a wide single bed for solo travellers.

Golden Horizon Dining & Restaurants

There are two dining venues on Golden Horizon; the spectacular main dining room and the more informal Horizon Bar. The main dining room offers outstanding cuisine in a grand setting, complete with maritime art, wrought-iron balconies and an eye-catching ceiling skylight. Here, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch (both buffet-style) and a full-service dinner served with complimentary beers and wines.

The Horizon Bar is open during lunch for light-bites and again in the afternoon for a ‘Deck Delights’ trolley service. 24-hour room service is also available in selected cabin categories for those who wish to dine in private

Golden Horizon Entertainment & Facilities

During the day, you are free to join Golden Horizon’s other guests on a packed activity programme which includes wine-tasting, cooking, games and quizzes. You can also enjoy talks from the ship’s resident guest speaker or head to the water-sports marina to use the ship’s kayaks, dinghies, water skis and waterboards.

The evening entertainment onboard Golden Horizon is relatively low key, with performances from local artists and the ship’s musical duo designed to complement the onboard ambience. There are two outside bars available should you wish to enjoy a drink on the deck, while Debeljak’s is a premium beverage bar serving the finest whiskey and gins.

Other facilities on Golden Horizon include:

  • Two swimming pools and one 'deep dive' pool
  • Spa with a sauna, snow room and jacuzzi
  • Beauty salon offering manicures, blow-dries and other treatments
  • Fitness classes on the Sun Deck
