SEADREAM Yacht Club has an unusual and extended sailing through the Greek Cyclades on September 13 2017 that will include a day and an overnight in legendary Mykonos, and by contrast offer days ashore in smaller boutique holiday ports that whilst exceptionally popular, are too small to be accessed by larger cruise ships.
Mega motor-cruiser SeaDream I will sail this 10-day Piraeus (Athens) return voyage with a maximum of just 112 guests, visiting Navplion with its postcard-perfect traditional-style houses and public buildings, and motor-car free Spetses where the super-rich tie-up in their mega-yachts and mingle with the locals who get around on foot, bicycle, horse-drawn carriages, or aboard mopeds and motor-cycles.
There’s also a day in Santorini for an optional quick lesson in Greek cooking or to visit local wineries, Patmos that was first mentioned in the Book of Revelations, and a full day and an overnight to embrace the beauty, historic treasures and cosmopolitan lifestyle and nightlife of Mykonos.
SeaDream will have a day too at Naxos famed for its breathtaking sunsets and the cave-home of Zeus of Greek mythological fame, and Paros with its whitewashed houses and neoclassical mansions overlooked by a well-preserved 13th century Venetian castle.
By contrast Sifnos offers picturesque villages with narrow streets running between traditional stone houses overlooking amazing beach and ocean views, and during a day in Hydra, SeaDream guests will enjoy its beauty and history on foot or by donkey or bicycle, as again there are no motorised vehicles on this picturesque island
Price of this 10-day adventure begins from US$7009pp twin-share including wines with lunches and dinners, premium drinks from the open bars, power and sail water sports, mountain bikes for shore expeditions, a free onboard golf simulator and fitness centre, and port charges and taxes.
