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 to the Mediterranean and the Caribbean.

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 the charm, romance, and adventure of the historic 19th and 20th-century clippers.
