At SeaDream, he will focus on sales growth in both inbound and outbound sales. Prieto will report directly to Christopher Gamble, SeaDream’s senior vice president of sales, Americas.
Prior to joining SeaDream, Prieto worked at Oceania Cruises for 15 years, most recently as the senior director of sales operations. Prior to that position, he was the vice president of field sales.

SeaDream Yacht Club currently operates two mega-yachts, the SeaDream I and SeaDream II, both of which carry a maximum of 56 couples and 95 crew. Its ships visit small ports and harbors worldwide on seven- to 15-day itineraries, with many services, activities, water toys, dining, wine, premium drinks and gratuities included in the fare. The line is reportedly looking to expand its fleet, and it hopes to announce a new ship next year. The SeaDream I and SeaDream II are also slated for a full suite refurbishment, also starting next year.
