If you like wine and cruise ships, this may interest you. SeaDream Yacht Club has announced four niche wine voyages, including a special wine education voyage, taking place from Sept. 20 through Nov. 8. The company’s two mega-yachts already have a unique culinary and beverage program, which features a raw cuisine menu and delicacies from ports of call. SeaDream most recently introduced a new Scandinavian menu for the coming summer’s northern Europe trips that include reindeer, moose and fish caught daily by local fishermen.
SeaDream I and II will sail the Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts on three wine voyages, visiting harbors in Italy, Spain and Portugal’s wine countries. Each offers experiences for beginners and veteran wine lovers with itineraries developed by the company’s wine director, Erica Landin, a Swedish internationally recognized wine writer. The wine education voyage takes place during a 12-day transatlantic crossing from Lisbon to San Juan.
The other trips are two seven-day voyages, one from Rome to Athens and the other from Monte Carlo to Rome, and a 10-day trip from Barcelona to Lisbon. According to the company’s website, rates start at $3,000. For more information, visit www.seadream.com
