In 2014, after sailing the globe visiting small ports and harbors in Southeast Asia, Papua New Guinea, Northern Europe and the Mediterranean, both mega-yachts of SeaDream Yacht Club will conclude the year sailing the Caribbean. Offering a fully inclusive yachting experience, SeaDream I and SeaDream II will sail from departure ports in Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, Barbados beginning Nov. 6, 2014. Limited availability remains on end of year Caribbean voyages with fares starting at $2,999 per person, based on double occupancy.

"As large mega-ships enter the Caribbean, SeaDream continues to offer a true yacht experience visiting small ports and anchoring in secluded coves away from the crowds," shares President Bob Lepisto. "Our guests say they favor the smaller, intimate size of our mega-yachts for an off-the-beaten path island escape with personalized service."

During fall 2014, the SeaDream twins will visit secluded islands including Culebrita and Vieques off the coast of Puerto Rico as well as Guadeloupe, Saba and Grenada. The British Virgin Islands port of Jost Van Dyke and overnights in St. Barts are among itinerary highlights. The mega-yachts also call on an astounding five ports in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, including the smallest inhabited island in the chain, Mayreau, which stretches only 1.5 miles with a population of 300 residents.

Itineraries in the Caribbean emphasize relaxation and rejuvenation. Guests can take advantage of the SeaDream Spa, with the highest therapist-to-guest ratio at sea. They can splash in the surf with a bevy of water toys, including stand-up paddleboards and wave runners, available from the yacht's marina. They can also partake in the revelry of special beachside culinary experiences like the signature Champagne and Caviar Splash, in which bubbles and caviar are served in the sea aboard a white linen-sheathed surfboard.
