From the moment you step on-board the Golden Horizon, your experience will certainly befit its grandeur, with the highest standards of accommodation, dining and entertainment.

All 140 cabins are outside facing, so guests can enjoy the breath-taking views. Cabins evoke the luxury and facilities expected of a boutique cruise ship, whilst retaining charm, adventure and romance of a truly historic sailing vessel. Cabins on the Gallery and Marina decks have two portholes, accommodating up to two people, whilst on the Main deck the Deluxe cabins have a balcony and are spacious enough to accommodate two adults and two children.

Discerning guests may also opt for our Upper deck Suite accommodation, with balcony, living room and dining area, as well as the added luxuries of a walk-in wardrobe, complimentary mini-bar, concierge service and bathroom with shower and tub.

Traditional features and furnishings are a tribute to the nautical heritage of a tall ship and beautiful spaces include the majestic dining room, with its wrought iron balconies and central skylight. Here the dining caters for all tastes and preferences, offering outstanding food and service. Alongside classic dishes our dedicated team seek to use fresh local produce and create menus relevant to our regional ports of call.

The ambience is elegant yet casual, without any unnecessary formality – relax around the pools on our Upper deck, enjoy a cool drink at one of the four bars or rejuvenate with a treatment at the spa or salon. Our marina platform at the stern of the ship provides access to water sports – why not go for a snorkel in the clear waters or borrow a pico sailing dinghy to discover closer some of the quiet coves.

Throughout any voyage, the on-board cruise team offer a programme of activities, which may include wine tasting, cooking demonstrations, as well as resident and visiting speakers giving an insight into local history and environments. In addition to our pianist and musical duo, with a repertoire ranging from jazz to contemporary themes, local shows, dancers and singers also join during the itinerary to immerse our guests into their culture.

From the UK to Australia, the journey you choose is just one part of your unique experience… With grace and beauty, the Golden Horizon is a sailing ship first and foremost, combining historical influences with contemporary style. Speak to our team at Black Opal, who will find the perfect itinerary for you to enjoy this superb vessel.
