SEADREAM Yacht Club is enjoying growing interest amongst Australians in its annual Caribbean seasons from November to April, believing much of it can be put down to new and speedier non-stop flights from Sydney to Dallas Fort Worth, and from there non-stop direct into San Juan, Puerto Rico.
SeaDream will have a-near 40 sailings ranging from four to ten days with its mega motor-cruisers SeaDream I and SeaDream II in the Caribbean this coming season, a third of these beginning or ending in San Juan.
Company President, Bob Lepisto says that SeaDream has always had a good core-interest amongst Australians in its Caribbean seasons, but these new air connections have seen a marked jump in new bookings and of repeat-sailings by past SeaDreamers.
“Australians are amongst our most adventurous guests, and take enthusiastically to our off-the-beaten-track treasures that get us away from the crowds where the larger vessels visit,” Mr Lepisto said.
“These places give our guests a truly unique look into just what the colourful smaller Caribbean islands have to offer – including dining in the local cafés and restaurants, popping into the local bars with their friendly ambiences, and the wonderfully laid-back atmosphere of their beachside communities.”
The world’s highest-rated mega motor-cruisers, SeaDream I and SeaDream II each carry just 112-guests served by 95-crew, with prices including all staterooms having ocean views, wines with gourmet-dining lunches and dinners, open bars with select premium drinks, power and sail water sports centres, mountain bikes for shore expeditions, onboard golf simulators, and a fitness centre on each vessel.
SeaDream Yacht Club’s 7-day Caribbean season sailings in 2016/2017 start from US$3191pp twin-share with all above inclusions. For details www.seadream.com
