SeaDream Yacht Club announces unique Caribbean itineraries
See the intimate, elegant, casual and active Caribbean on SeaDream’s mega-yachts
SeaDream Yacht Club is introducing its own unique Caribbean, an intriguing series of five-, seven- and nine-night sailings from November 2007 through April 2008 that includes 22 small, intimate yachting ports – a confident expansion of its previous presence in the region.
For the Caribbean’s winter season, the mega-yacht cruisers SeaDream I and II will sail more than 30 itineraries in the British Virgin Islands, US Virgin Islands, French West Indies, Netherlands Antilles and in the Windward and Leeward Islands.
Commenting on SeaDream Yacht Club’s Caribbean, Larry Pimentel, the company’s president and CEO said, “I feel it is important for me to point out that SeaDream is a tiny yacht operator in a big pond. We are small but we have a big presence in the Caribbean.
“Our Caribbean is not the Caribbean of the major cruise operators, many of which have tenders that hold more passengers than SeaDream I and II. Our Caribbean is intimate, elegant, casual and active. There is a difference.
“For example, each SeaDream yacht has an Asian Spa facility with eight highly trained masseuses. This is more spa therapists per guest than any passenger vessel operating today,” he stated.
GETTING ON AND OFF YOUR YACHT
The 55-stateroom SeaDream I and II will use San Juan (Puerto Rico), St Thomas (USVI) and Barbados as embarkation-debarkation ports.
Ports of call include Anguilla (Sandy Ground), British West Indies; Anegada, Jost van Dyke (White Bay), Peter Island, Tortola (Road Town) and Virgin Gorda (Spanish Town and North Sound), all in the British Virgin Islands; Martinique (Trois Ilets), St Barts (Gustavia) and St Martin (Marigot), all in the French West Indies; Nevis (Charlestown), Leeward Islands; Saba, Netherlands Antilles; Montserrat (Little Bay); Guadaloupe (Iles Des Saintes) and St Lucia (Soufriere), both in the Windward Islands; Bequia (Port Elizabeth), Canouan (Grand Bay), Carriacou (Hillsborough), Tobago Cays and Mayreau, all in the Grenadines; Culebrita Island (Dewey) and Vieques (Esperanza), both in Puerto Rico; and St John (Cruz Bay), US Virgin Islands.
SUN, FUN AND BLUE WATER
SeaDream’s Caribbean answers to stress and strain include strolling deserted powder-sand beaches, promenading through tiny villages, swimming at night in a bioluminescent bay, sampling fine wine at an outdoor French café, riding a submersible boat, shopping in luxury boutiques, enjoying watersports from the SeaDream yacht’s stern marina and playing 18-holes of golf on a championship course.
SeaDream’s Caribbean guests can be as active as they wish or just take it easy. Many SeaDream guests choose to take advantage of the company’s Land Adventure Program, a series of highly personalized opportunities. Others choose to just do their own thing.
There will also be time to enjoy champagne and caviar suddenly produced at water’s edge along a deserted beach.
The Caribbean always surprises guests with remarkably fine international restaurants and local hangouts that make an art form of creating West Indies specialties utilizing fresh locally caught seafood. Guests will also enjoy opportunities to hang out with locals, such as on Jost van Dyke, where SeaDream guests are invited to spend an evening at famed local hangout, Foxy’s.
