SeaDream Yacht Club will sail to the Mediterranean’s most secluded destinations, visiting ports and harbours so small that only the 112-guest twin mega-yachts, SeaDream I and SeaDream II can enter. Both yachts will depart from Malaga (Spain) on May 1 while SeaDream I will transport guests to the beautiful ports of Cartagena, Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca, Mahon, Alghero, and Bonifacio on a 7-day sailing before arriving in Citavecchia on May 8. SeaDream II will embark on an 8-day sailing to Cartagena, Valencia, Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca, Barcelona, Collioure and Sanary-sur-Mer before arriving in Monte Carlo on May 9.
Bob Lepisto, president of SeaDream Yacht Club commented “The SeaDream experience in the Mediterranean is truly a yachting experience with short distances to smaller ports a strong appeal. This allows more time to explore intimate ports like Korcula and Hvar in Croatia or expereince our water sports marina right off the stern of the ship.”
