SeaDream Yacht Club has announced that, for the first time, they will deploy one of their twin mega-yachts, SeaDream II to Asia for the winter season 2013/14 after the completion of her advertised summer 2013 Mediterranean season.

The first of her Asia programme departures is “Passage to the Far East”, which will depart Athens, Greece on 12th 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; prices for this epic 15-night voyage start from £4,050 per person inc Govt, fees, handling & port tax. From Mumbai, she will sail onwards via Cochin, Sri Lanka and the Andaman Islands to Thailand before dropping down to Singapore; this 13-night trans-Indian Ocean sailing costs from £3,995 per person inc Govt. fees, handling & port tax.

Offering 18 unique sailings in total, each voyage in SeaDream II’s new Asia programme offers unique and exciting ports of call, each ranging from seven to fifteen nights duration; most may be combined to create longer back-to-back holidays.
