SeaDream Yacht Club's 2011 Norwegian Fjord Debut

SeaDream I, SeaDream Yacht Club’s 112 guest mega-yacht will make her Baltic and Norwegian Fjord debut starting with an eleven-night voyage May 28th to June 8th, 2011 sailing from Hamburg, Germany to Bergen, Norway. On the itinerary; a transit of the Kiel Canal; the summer sailing villages of Faaborg, Denmark and Marstrand, Sweden and eight days discovering the world famous fjords and captivating wildlife of Norway. Leading travel publications worldwide, including National Geographic have rated the Norwegian fjords as a top travel destination.

SeaDream I will be the first cruise vessel to visit Faaborg on Denmark ’s island of Fyn (home of Hans Christian Andersen). Popular for sailing during the summer months, SeaDream guests will have the unique opportunity to race
historical sailing ships in Faaborg. From Denmark , SeaDream sails to the vibrant boating destination of Marstrand , Sweden . Founded under Norwegian rule in the thirteenth century, visitors adore Marstrand’s ornate wooden buildings and bustling harbor.

Additional highlights of this voyage include a call on Lillesand, Norway. Due to the small size of Lillesand, larger cruise vessels do not visit this quaint village. Known for its charming white-painted “Captain’s houses” and its maritime history, here SeaDream guests experience firsthand how Norwegians spend their summers. “Skjaergaarden”, the tiny islands near Lillesand show off incredible summer homes belonging to Norway ’s wealthiest.

During the voyage SeaDream will dock in the center of Oslo , Norway ’s capital. The city is a blend of the country’s old culture and traditions with today’s modern Norwegian lifestyle. Oslo has excellent museums, parks and even a royal Palace. Outdoor activities such as hiking, biking and fishing are popular during the long summer days here. In contrast Flam , Norway is surrounded by steep mountainsides and deep valleys. It is remote and peaceful. SeaDream’s ample outdoor deck space will allow guests to take in grand views of the surrounding majestic waterfalls. Excursion options will include a ride on the famous Flåm Railway up to the Vatnahalsen Hotel for tea and local delicacies.

This SeaDream voyage concludes in Bergen , Norway with a special beach barbeque on a nearby island. As the calendar approaches June 21st (the longest day of the year) the magnificent “midnight sun” bathes Norway with near 24 hours of light.

SeaDream’s Norwegian Captains and Officers look forward to sharing their country with guests. Space is available with rates starting as low as $7,099 per person plus fees. SeaDream Yacht Club’s inclusive pricing includes ocean view accommodations, gourmet meals, wine with lunch and dinner, open bar with selected premium brands, gratuities, use of mountain bikes and more.
