SeaDream Yacht Club outlined its summer 2015 Mediterranean season, which features visits to less-visited ports that are so small that only its 112-guest twin mega-yachts can enter.
Both yachts will kick off the season with departures from Malaga, Spain, on May 1. The SeaDream I will sail to Cartagena, Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca, Mahon, Alghero, and Bonifacio on a seven-day cruise before arriving in Citavecchia on May 8. SeaDream II will depart on an eight-day sailing to Cartagena, Valencia, Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca, Barcelona, Collioure and Sanary-sur-Mer before arriving in Monte Carlo on May 9.
“The SeaDream experience in the Mediterranean is truly a yachting experience with short distances to smaller ports,” SeaDream President Bob Lepisto said in an email. “This allows more time to explore intimate ports like Korcula and Hvar in Croatia or play on our water sports marina right off the stern.”
The two yachts will sail throughout the Mediterranean, to Italian ports such as Capri, Positano, Amalfi and Taormina, and Greek destinations including Kefalonia, Itea for Delphi, Santorini, Hydra and Athens. Other ports include Opatija, Rab, Sibenik and Split, Croatia, and Kotor, Montenegro.
Complimentary crew-led shore excursions will be available in numerous destinations, such as biking through the countryside outside Bonifacio, shopping with the chef in Sorrento or St. Tropez, and hiking in Hydra (known for its lack of cars) to the monastery at the top of the island.
Guests can use Waverunners, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and other watersports directly from the yacht’s marina. Fares begin at $4,599, based on double occupancy, and include wine, premium drinks and gratuities.
