first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterSeaDream Yacht Club has released 80 exciting new itinerary options in the Mediterranean and Caribbean in 2017, many with new ports not previously visited and too small for larger cruise ships to access.Company President, Bob Lepisto, says that by visiting these ports away from larger vessels, SeaDream’s guests can explore ashore without the thousands of others and avoid queues.“We’ll be visiting some of the most colourful and contrasting ports of Southern Europe as both mega motor-cruisers sail the waters of the Amalfi Coast, the Aegean and Greek Islands, the Balearic Islands, the Adriatic Sea and Croatian Coast, and the French and Italian Rivieras, Malta and Turkey,” Mr Lepisto said.“In Porto Cervo in Italy’s northern Sardinia, and other ports those larger vessels cannot go, it will be like holidaying on your own personal yacht, SeaDream I and II each carrying a maximum of just 112 guests served by 95 crew.”In the Caribbean, SeaDream’s 2017 itineraries will include such secluded treasure spots as Saba and Culebrita and Vieques in Puerto Rico, as well as St Barts, Barbados, the French West Indies, the Grenadines and the US Virgin Islands.“Our emphasis is on relaxation and rejuvenation with not only shore-side activities, that include our signature in-the-water Champagne and Caviar Splash served from a linen-sheathed surfboard, but our onboard spas that have the highest therapist-to-guest ratio at sea, and our popular water sports platforms with their range of power and sail watercraft.“And there are also our complimentary mountain bikes for personal shore-side exploration and excursions,” Mr Lepisto said.Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more
