Young pianists, exclusive concerts and relaxation beneath the sails – the Steinway cruise for music lovers.  

 

At Steinway every piano is a masterpiece 

For many the Steinway name is synonymous with the piano – and for good reason, as ever since Henry E. Steinway and his sons founded their company in New York in 1853, Steinway & Sons has produced first-class pianos, every one of which is a masterpiece with character.  Attention to detail and passion for innovation mean that Steinway is today considered to be the founder of modern piano manufacturing. 

 

Promoting a new generation of pianists 

Steinway & Sons is committed to promoting young pianists and supports them through the Steinway Prizewinner Concert Network. Although many young musicians have a great deal of talent and flair, they mostly remain unknown in the music world. This is where Steinway comes into play: Highly talented musicians are selected in first-class piano competitions and are given the opportunity to introduce themselves to a broad audience at international performances. 

 

Emerging talents 

What could be more exciting than witnessing the career of a great artist from the outset? Two young prize winners selected by Steinway will accompany the Sea Cloud ii cruise from Hamburg to Bilbao and treat guests to a diverse musical program on board. However, top-class musical performances are not just waiting for you at sea: In Hamburg/Germany and in Pauillac/France, guests can enjoy two exclusive piano concerts from exceptional musicians in a stylish ambience. 

 

The panoramic trip along the Elbe 

The Sea Cloud ii departs from Hamburg’s harbor and glides along the Elbe at a leisurely pace. On the way, you will pass the Elbchaussee’s patrician villas, the stair-lined district of Blankenese, the Airbus territory and all the picturesque banks of the Elbe with their green dykes. 

 

Bruges: UNESCO World Heritage Site 

Be it English cloth merchants, Hamburg’s moneybags or traders from Castile, trade has been at the heart of life in this Hanseatic city for centuries. Even today there are still great shopping opportunities in the charming medieval old town of Bruges. As you stroll past ramparts, windmills and romantic canals, you will discover all sorts of artistic and culinary delights in the small boutique shops. 

 

A jewel in the Atlantic: Belle-Île-en-Mer 

It is easy to imagine that this island was the birthplace of summer; as soon as the sun rises over this Breton isle, the cafés and squares are instantly filled with the friendly chatter of locals, accordion players and women selling their wares at the market. With its serene atmosphere, the port of Le Palais is the perfect place to be discovered individually.
