SeaDream transatlantic speakers

Focuses on Health, Wellness, World Affairs, Current News and Aviation

SeaDream Yacht Club, operator of the twin, ultra-luxury, mega yacht cruisers SeaDream I and II, will offer guests on two transatlantic voyages this year a high- profile speakers� program as a bonus to the joys of blue water sailing.

The lecture programs will feature prominent speakers on Health and Wellness, World Affairs, Current News and Modern Aviation.
The transatlantic sailings are:

� SeaDream I, Voyage #1543, Seville, Spain to San Juan, Puerto Rico, 11 days, October 15-26. Cost is from $2,199.

� SeaDream II, Voyage #2545, Tenerife, Canary Islands to West Palm Beach, Florida, 12 days, October 22-November 3. Cost is from $2,299.

Less than $200 per person per day, these costs are based on double occupancy of a SeaDream Yacht Club stateroom. Modest port and handling charges $136 or $192 per person depending on the sailing are extra. There are no single supplement extra charges for solo travelers on these sailings.
If booked prior to June 1 SeaDream will provide a $200 credit per stateroom for use in its renowned, onboard Asian Spa.

The Transatlantic Speakers Program includes:

� Seville-San Juan, October 15---Ambassador Edward L. Peck former Chief of Mission in Iraq; Keith Appleton, Senior Flight Engineer with British Airways and Dr. Steven Karch, Assistant Medical Examiner for the city of San Francisco.

� Tenerife-West Palm Beach, October 22---Captain Mike Hollyer, Senior flight Engineer, British Airways; Dr. Karen Barefoot, Nutritional Spokesperson for the America Academy of Family Physicians and Alice Weiser, Internationally-known handwriting Analyst.
SeaDream is also offering various extensions to these transatlantic sailings to provide guests with more lengthy voyages that include a number of appealing ports-of-call.

For example, on SeaDream I, Seville to Puerto Rico, that 11-day sailing can be extended to 15 days by remaining onboard in San Juan and sailing on to the British Virgin Islands then back to San Juan for disembarkation on October 30. Ports of call on this extension will be Gustavia, St. Barts and Marigot, St. Martin in the French West Indies and Jost van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands. Cost for the extension is $1,499, bringing the entire voyage to $3,698 per person.

The 12-day SeaDream II sailing from Tenerife to West Palm Beach offers another appealing possibility; a pre-transatlantic sailing. Guests may choose to board in Seville on October 15 and sail to Tenerife where the transatlantic voyage commences on October 22. Ports of call on from Seville to Tenerife are Cadiz, Spain; Funchal, Madeira; and Lanzarote, Canary Islands. Cost for this addition is $3,499 per person bringing the entire voyage to $5,688 per person.
SeaDream does not regularly offer a lecture program on its yacht-like sailings. Its guests have ample opportunity to entertain themselves with the company�s noted water sports program, unique shore excursions at ports of call and other activities designed for well-traveled, active guests. It is offering its transatlantic travelers this series of compelling speakers as a diversion from those lazy days at sea that attract travelers to these �blue-water� sailings.
�We believe the combination of mental tranquility afforded by days at sea and the stimulation of interaction with speakers on topical subjects will provide our guests on these transatlantic sailings with the best of all possible worlds,� said Larry Pimentel, CTC, SeaDream�s President and CEO.

SeaDream fares include all meals, wine with lunch and dinner, open bar, use of the water toys and gratuities. Air transportation and ground transportation to and from the SeaDream yacht is not included. Fares are capacity controlled and are subject to change with out notice.

Those interested in these or other sailings are invited by SeaDream to contact their travel agent.
