Sailing cruise ship Sea Cloud II in Öresund tonight

The sailing cruise ship Sea Cloud II was tonight on its way northwards in Öresund

Some information about the ship:

The Sea Cloud II is a large barque built as a cruise ship, and operated by Sea Cloud Cruises GmbH of Hamburg, Germany. A luxury vessel, she sails under the Maltese flag. The Roman suffix II indicates that she is the company's second ship. She is neither a sister to, nor the successor of, the Sea Cloud (ex Hussar II), but a separate vessel.

The Sea Cloud II is a square-rigger with fore-mastmain-mast and mizzen-mast. The top of her main-mast is 57 m (187 ft) above deck. Her 23 sails have a total area of approximately 3,000 m2 (32,000 sq ft). She is sailed traditionally by hand, as is common, for example, on sail training ships. (Wiki)
