Boutique yacht company, SeaDream will be taking guests to some new destinations during its 2021 season.
Guests can choose between eight new voyages which highlight ports in the mysterious Black Sea. It’s the first time the line returns to the region with SeaDream II visiting Istanbul.
Some of the features include an overnight in Odessa, the city known as the “Pearl of the Black Sea”. Here, guests can climb the Potemkin Steps and step back in time to the Russian Orthodox period as they enter the Ukrainian city.
After a six-year absence, Turkey is back on SeaDream’s itinerary. The shore excursions in Istanbul include a visit to the vineyards and beaches of Bozcaada and the former capital of the Ottoman Empire, Mudanya.
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. It will be the first time ever Israel has been offered as part of a SeaDream itinerary.
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.
