SeaDream I To Make Baltic, Norweigan Fjord DebutJanuary 3, 2011 By: Staff
SeaDream I, SeaDream Yacht Club’s 112-guest mega-yacht will make its Baltic and Norwegian Fjord debut starting with an 11-night voyage from May 28 to June 8, sailing from Hamburg, Germany to Bergen, Norway.
On the itinerary is 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. Rates start at $7,099 per person plus fees.
SeaDream I will be the first cruise vessel to visit Faaborg on Denmark’s island of Fyn. 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.
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 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.
