SeaDream Yacht Club has announced the expansion of the UK sales team adding two seasoned sales professionals, who will be working with Senior Director, Ian Buckeridge.

** Jenny Wright joins SeaDream from a premium travel and cruise background, having previously worked for Citalia Holidays and more recently for Holland America Line.

** Kelly Langrick joins SeaDream having previously held industry appointments with Costa Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line.

Both have been engaged as Business Development Directors to augment SeaDream’s presence in the British and Irish markets. Commenting, Morten Leite, SeaDream’s Vice President of Sales for Europe and Asia said: “Supplementing our sales team at this time reflects both the support we are giving to and the importance we place on the UK and Irish markets especially with the forthcoming visit of SeaDream I to the UK in May next year, ahead of her inaugural Northern Europe season.”

The SeaDream Difference:

In the nine years since the company came into business, innovative SeaDream Yacht Club has brought a refreshing sea change to the world of ultra-luxury holidays at sea – with the intention of being completely different from any and every other cruise product.

The expression ‘Yacht Club’ is not a sentiment about size, it is a statement about lifestyle aboard the small, ultra-deluxe ships. Chic and stylish, the 56-bedroom mega yachts SeaDream I and II are the ultimate hybrid of deluxe private yacht and luxury boutique spa. The elegant informality of the yachts sits comfortably with state-of-the art facilities, discreet, personal service and world class cuisine

Yachting is about enjoying an unstructured lifestyle – dropping anchor offshore rather than tie up along side, staying in port until well after midnight and taking a voyage to locations where large traditional cruise ships just cannot sail.

The Berlitz 2011 ratings have been released and SeaDream I & II have been rated World’s Best once again in the small ship category (under 200 guests) according to the 2011 Berlitz Cruise Guide published
October 4, 2010.

The new Berlitz Guide, researched and written by Douglas Ward – the world’s top authority on cruising and cruise ships – enforces that when it comes to ocean travel “small is beautiful”. Having reviewed 285 cruise ships, Ward has named the highest-rated ships for 2011, the top 10 being officially ‘small’ or ‘boutique’.
