SeaDream Yacht Club has announced that it will begin sailing in Norway in June 2020, following a pause in its operation due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
The company is now accepting reservations for nine new Norwegian voyages between June and September, include hand-picked destinations by SeaDream’s Norwegian founder and owner, Atle Brynestad.
As the COVID-19 pandemic developed, SeaDream was able to avoid contamination thanks to stringent sanitation procedures and excellent medical infrastructure on board. However, the company decided to pause operations because of travel restrictions. The yachts were repositioned to Lisbon where the crew choosing to stay on board have been busy doing maintenance and upgrades. The chefs have spent the time coming up with new dishes, and the deck crew has painted, replaced the teak deck, and performed other maintenance tasks onboard. SeaDream continues to closely monitor the global health and travel restrictions with the agility to adapt our itineraries as needed.
“We believe that there is no better way to experience Norway this summer than onboard SeaDream,” said Andreas Brynestad, executive v.p. of SeaDream Yacht Club, in a press release statement. “We know our guests will enjoy the SeaDream experience of casual elegance and gourmet dining accompanied by the most beautiful backdrop in the world. Our yachts offer a naturally healthy, outdoor environment where space, fresh air, and healthy food have always been a central component. We are so excited to be back doing what we do best – bringing our signature SeaDream service to our loyal guests.”
The new voyages include two options: a 7-day voyage to Bergen and a 12-day voyage with 3 days in Lofoten, one of Norway’s premier destinations.
Bergen is the second-largest city in Norway, known to Norwegians as “the Heart of the Fjords.” Two 7-day voyages will embark in Bergen and disembark in Oslo, with a third voyage embarking in Oslo and disembarking in Bergen. Additionally, all six of the 12-day voyages will offer opportunities to explore Bergen’s houses on hillsides, cobblestone alleys, and world-renowned gastronomy. The Lofoten Islands are a long-beloved summer destination for Norwegians, far above the Arctic Circle. SeaDream guests onboard the 12-day voyages will enjoy 3 days in Lofoten filled with views of majestic mountains, breathtaking fjords, and surf-swept beaches. Additional new ports in the new itineraries include Olden, Alesund, Geiranger, Flam, Rosendal, Skagen, Rorvk, and Tromso.
These new Norwegian voyages will be enhanced by an expansive selection of Yachting Land Adventures to ensure guests have the opportunity to experience the best each port has to offer.
