In Jan. 2012, Sea Cloud Cruises' Sea Cloud II, the last windjammer ever built on which guests can experience the sails being set and all the sailing maneuvers performed by hand without computer interference, will sail the Panama Canal for the first time to the Pacific.

The voyage with the Sea Cloud II includes a variety of shore visits leading to the National Parks of Costa Rica. Biologists, local guides and lecturers on board the Sea Cloud II provide insight into Costa Rica's countryside to guests while they enjoy the five-star cruise ship.
