THE SEADREAM ALTERNATIVE

Yes, jet travel and cruise travel are different in many ways. Yes, jet travel and cruise travel are different in many ways. But, throw Mother Nature into the equation with a mammoth cloud of volcanic ash and you have a different situation altogether. As Bob Lepisto, President of SeaDream Yacht Club—upscale operator of elegant but casual seagoing adventures— says “Jets are fine if you are in a hustling hurry but a leisurely, blue water sail is a delightful alternative not to be missed.” So, with a smile and an idea whose time has come, Bob calls attention to his twin, mega-yacht cruisers—SeaDream I and II— that will soon journey on lazy eastbound transatlantic voyages from the Caribbean to Europe—the old fashioned way. Here are the details: SeaDream II departs Bridgetown, Barbados April 25 for a 12-day transatlantic sailing to Malaga, Spain. Those lazy days at sea are interrupted at Funchal, Madeira for an overnight pleasure stop. SeaDream I departs San Juan, Puerto Rico April 30 for a similar 13-day voyage and a morning-evening stop at Funchal before she arrives at Malaga. And here’s the best part: Fares start at SeaDream’s special “Book Today and Save” rate which is only $2,299 per person. If more encouragement is needed, with SeaDream there’s time to read Moby Dick, or War and Peace, to snooze in the shade, to dine marvelously on award-winning gourmet cuisine, to exercise a bit and get to know some new seagoing friends who were smart enough to take The SeaDream Alternative. Bob Lepisto notes that SeaDream has already experienced an up-tick in bookings from travelers who have cited the volcanic ash cloud as a reason for sailing with SeaDream—as if a reason were needed.
