SeaDream Yacht Club to debut in Asia in 2013/14

For the first time, SeaDream Yacht Club is to deploy one of its yachts, SeaDream II, to Asia for the winter season after the completion of her summer 2013 Mediterranean season.

The first Asia programme departure is “Passage to the Far East”, which will depart Athens on 12 October 2013 and include a transit of the Suez Canal, excursions to Egypt’s fascinating archeological sites (accompanied by Egyptologist) en route to Mumbai, India.

From Mumbai she will sail onwards via Cochin, Sri Lanka and the Andaman Islands to Thailand before dropping down to Singapore.
