Sailing as part of the Tradewind Voyages’ fleet, Golden Horizon is the largest square-rigged sailing ship in the world, bringing together the elegance and charm of a traditional vessel with the modern flair which attracts guests to ocean travel. On voyages everywhere from Northern Europe to the Indian Ocean and even Australia, guests will be treated to fine dining using fresh, local ingredients, immersive shore excursions and relaxing hours onboard learning more about the regions or unwinding in the spa. What's more, with each cabin facing outside, guests will be able to enjoy the exceptional views throughout their cruise.
With a main dining room to match the elegant interior of the rest of the ship, breakfast, lunch and dinner are always a special occasion onboard Golden Horizon. Focusing on wellness and sustainability, the team of experienced chefs will use fresh ingredients to serve both classic and local dishes, treating guests to a taste of the destinations they visit.
If you'd like to enjoy a more relaxed meal, 24-hour room service means you can enjoy breakfast in bed as you soak up the sea views. Alternatively, delicious lunches and afternoon treats can be found at the al fresco Horizon Bar.
Once the sun sets, guests onboard Golden Horizon can expect sophisticated evening entertainment. For live music, the resident pianist in the piano bar will delight with a repertoire of jazz, classical and contemporary pieces, while local performers will be invited onboard, including dancers and singers.
When it comes to finding a spot to unwind and enjoy a drink, the two outside bars are guaranteed to please, or, for those with a nose for fine whiskeys and gins, Debeljak serves some of the finest in the world.
Small ship sailing is the perfect holiday for unwinding and relaxing, and thanks to Golden Horizon's onboard spa, you'll be able to do just this. Boasting treatment rooms, a sauna and snow room, as well as a beauty salon, be sure to book a visit and enjoy being pampered.
As well as a spa, guests will also be able to enjoy working out at the ship's gym. Fitness classes and yoga sessions will also be held on the sun deck, ideal for those looking to breathe in the fresh air as they exercise. For something a little more adventurous, the ship's marina will get you out into the ocean, although a more relaxed dip can be enjoyed in one of the pools on deck.
On days where guests spend more time at sea, the attentive crew will host a variety of activities, ranging from fun games on deck to wine tasting and demonstrations. For those wanting to get stuck into life on a sailing ship, guests are also encouraged to help set the sails, learn how to navigate and even try their hand at steering. There will even be destination experts onboard ready to impart their knowledge on each region, or learn more yourself by spending an afternoon in the library.
