The eight new voyages are now open for reservationsSeaDream Yacht Club has added eight new voyages to its 2021 schedule for SeaDream II, which prominently highlight destinations in the Black Sea and Israel. After a six-year absence, the boutique luxury cruise line will be returning to Istanbul and the Black Sea. Additionally, due to the popularity of the recently announced 11-day voyage to Israel in May 2021, SeaDream has added a second Israel voyage in October of the same year. It will be the first time ever Israel has been offered as part of a SeaDream itinerary.
The Black Sea voyages feature many highlights, including an overnight in Odessa, often considered the “Pearl of the Black Sea,” where guests will be able to climb the Potemkin Steps and step back in time to the Russian Orthodox period as they enter the Ukrainian city. In Turkey, SeaDream guests can explore the always magnificent Istanbul as well as visit the vineyards and beaches of Bozcaada and the former capital of the Ottoman Empire, Mudanya. Other Black Sea ports of call include Varna and Burgas in Bulgaria, and Constanta in Romania.The new 11-day Israel voyage will feature Haifa, known for its striking Hanging Gardens, and Ashdod, which provides easy access to Israel’s most important cultural hubs, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. There will also be a stop in Limassol, Cyprus, another first for SeaDream. SeaDream’s two Israel voyages have been perfectly timed to take place in May and October, the best times of year to visit the region. “It is important for us at SeaDream to follow the sun and listen to our guests and where they want to go,” said Andreas Brynestad, Executive Vice President of SeaDream. “Ultimately, it’s their yacht. Our guests were asking for new destinations and places we have not been to in a while, and we were happy to oblige. We have included Israel, the Black Sea, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and other Mediterranean destinations and are confident our guests will welcome the new additions.” Other unique destinations for 2021 include Neum in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kavala in Greece, which is famous for its Roman aqueducts. Additionally, an overnight in Casablanca will provide for the perfect opportunity to experience the splendor of Marrakesh, and SeaDream will also be returning to Bordeaux, following a couple of popular voyages to the port this year which included exceptional Yachting Land Adventures. SeaDream’s 2021 Mediterranean voyages have at least one overnight in every voyage as well as no sea days. With every new destination comes a different and exciting adventure on SeaDream.
