CLUB MED 2
With her striking design, Club Med 2 turns heads wherever she sails. Built in France in 1992, her traditional diesel-electric power plant is supplemented by seven computer-operated sails. With a length of 194m, she is one of the largest sailing ships in the world.

Built at Chantiers de L'Atlantique in 1999, Grand Mistral was originally named Mistral, and was the first new ship for Festival Cruises. With a gross tonnage of 48,200 she can accommodate 1700 passengers served by a crew of 670. Following the collapse of Festival Cruises in 2004, she was bought by Iberojet (now Iberocruises) and in 2007 took the name Grand Mistral.
