Seadream Makes Maiden Visit To Bangkok

March 7, 2014 Cruise No Comments Email Email

SeaDream Yacht Club, with its twin, ultra-luxury mega yacht SeaDream II, continued its Asia your with a stop-off in Bangkok, one of South East Asia’s largest cities.

During its first trip to Asian shores the award-winning vessel has visited shores all across the region, from new frontiers in Myanmar and Papua New Guinea, to popular tourist destinations like Phuket and Bali. SeaDream II has been recognized year after year as the best boutique ship in the Berlitz Cruise Guide, with its sister ship, SeaDream I typically taking second spot in the standings.


“Our first trip to Asia has been a great success. One of the key features of SeaDream is our ability to go visit places where larger vessels can’t venture, and this has enabled to visit the untouched beauty of places like Myanmar’s Mergui Archipelago and the waters around Trang and Satun in southern Thailand. Additionally, our golf cruises have been hugely popular with Asian customers and this is an product we will develop for future cruises,” said Richard Jones, Asia Director of Business Development, SeaDream Yacht Club.

“Our ‘Yachting, not Cruising’ philosophy is central to our business and although we are a niche product we have found Asian who are well-travelled like the outstanding service on board, and the intimacy they find when travelling on SeaDream II,” continued Richard.

With only a maximum of 112 guests pampered by an award-winning crew of 95 SeaDream guests receive the very best service. The award-winning 5-star service is second to none and from the moment guests are welcomed aboard by the Captain it feels as if you are being welcomed onto your own private luxury yacht. All SeaDream voyages have ocean view accommodations, gourmet meals, gratuities, wine with lunch and dinner included in the fare, as well as a range of water toys for the more adventurous.

Highlights during SeaDream’s Asia tour have included:

•           Overnight, 2-day stay in Yangon, Myanmar (Burma), site of The Shwedagon Pagoda. Optional full day excursions by air to Mandalay and Bagan; a valley covered with 2,000 pagodas and temples.
