SeaDream Yacht Club Highlights 2019 Cuba Sailings

SeaDream Yacht Club, known for showcasing the most picturesque ports and harbors, will visit the rich, cultural landscape of Cuba in 2019 from January through April. With itineraries departing directly from Havana and Cienfuegos, guests will experience the ideal vantage point of the striking and colorful island nation. With miles of beaches, charming ports of call and brilliant turquoise water, the scenic landscape of Cuba is brought to life with the casual luxury of a SeaDream yacht.

“We have already seen terrific results with our 2019 Cuba sailings with a response beyond our expectations,” shares SeaDream Yacht Club Vice President of Marketing Colby Goodman. “Many of our bookings so far have come from past guests eager to see Cuba for the very first time. We are thrilled to deliver unique, new itineraries that our guests desire.”

Whether exploring the Spanish elegance of the cultural treasure chest and capital city of Havana, experiencing the pristine beaches of Cayo Largo, an idyllic paradise off the northwest coast of the mainland or visiting multiple UNESCO World Heritage Sites, SeaDream opens the door to a world that few have experienced before. With a maximum of only 112 guests to a 95-person crew, those who travel with SeaDream are able to experience one of the best culinary programs at sea while receiving exceptional service within an intimate setting, truly embodying the phrase “It’s yachting, not cruising.”

After an initial on-sale period available only to past guests, the 2019 Cuba sailings are now on sale to the general public. Very limited availability remains. Fares for the 7-day Cuba voyages start at $5,399 per guest plus fees. The inclusive fare includes ocean view accommodations, gourmet meals, gratuities, wine with lunch and dinner, and so much more. Due to strong demand and the quick pace of bookings, a 9th sailing has been opened for general sale to the public, leaving from Cienfuegos on March 4, 2019 and disembarking in Havana on March 11, 2019.
