Tradewind Voyages – Cruise Traveller

Circumnavigate Australia aboard the world’s largest square-rigged sailing vessel.

An Adventure Like No Other

Join Tradewind Voyages for an adventure like no other aboard the brand-new Golden Horizon, as she sets sail on her inaugural world voyage including circumnavigating Australia in 2021.

The World’s largest square-rigged sailing vessel, Golden Horizon is a near replica of the 1913-built ocean vessel, France II and retains the charm, adventure and romance of an historic ship.

Carrying just 272 guests with a crew of 159, the ambience on board is intimate, relaxed and casually elegant. Guests have the freedom to explore ashore or remain on board and use the ship as a wellbeing destination – taking advantage of the luxurious facilities and activities on offer. 

Committed to sustainability, the ship is powered by nature whenever possible and intends to sail, without using propulsion, for around 70% of the time, providing an authentic sailing experience.


A Grand Dining Experience

On-board dining offers something for all tastes and preferences, including healthy eating, sustainability and wellbeing. Alongside classic dishes, fresh, locally sourced produce is procured to create regionally inspired menus.

One of the highlights of the day is a full-service dinner served over two levels in the spectacular main dining room. A selection of wines and beers are complimentary during meal hours in the main dining room for lunch and dinner.

There’s also 24-hour complimentary room service*, so you can have a lazy breakfast in bed, or enjoy a private lunch or dinner in your ocean view cabin. If the sea breeze and sails are calling, head to the open-air Horizon Bar for lunch in the sunshine; with the chance to sneak a treat from the late afternoon ‘Deck Delights’ trolley service.

*Room service in selected cabin categories


Modern Luxury with a
Traditional Twist

All 140 cabins onboard Golden Horizon are outside facing, so guests can enjoy the breath-taking views. Beautifully appointed cabins and suites evoke the luxury and facilities expected of a boutique cruise ship, whilst retaining charm, adventure and romance of a truly historic sailing vessel.
