SeaDream adds second ship in Norway

"Overwhelming demand" requires capacity and frequency boost

SeaDream Yacht Club‘s deployment of a ship to the Norwegian coastline this month has been so successful the luxury cruise line is adding a second vessel.

The recently-announced voyages, which commence on 20 June 2020, include a seven-day cruise to Bergen and a 12-day voyage with three days in Lofoten onboard SeaDream I. The new sailings were introduced to offer the Norwegian market an opportunity to sail from home.

“After announcing nine new Norwegian voyages to sail in June 2020, SeaDream has had to adapt to meet the overwhelmingly high demand. SeaDream was planning on sailing to Norway with only one ship, SeaDream I. After seeing the response in Norway, the company has decided to add sailings on SeaDream II to meet demand. There are now 21 scheduled voyages for SeaDream in Norway,” the cruise line said.

SeaDream I is scheduled to sail past the Arctic Circle to the coveted Lofoten Islands in 12-day voyages embarking and disembarking in Oslo and Tromsø. SeaDream II will sail seven-day voyages embarking and disembarking in Oslo and Bergen. Both voyages will include stops in Ålesund, Flåm and Olden. On 27 June, both ships will sail together from Oslo to Skagen, Denmark.

“We are very happy to see this high demand for our new Norwegian voyages. Our phones have been ringing off the hook from 8am to midnight with booking requests since the Norwegian voyages were announced,” said SeaDream’s Andreas Brynestad.

Due to current restrictions, non-Norwegian guests may be required to self-quarantine before boarding. SeaDream says it continues to closely monitor travel restrictions and anticipates serving guests worldwide as countries begin to open to travel again. Thanks to its small size, SeaDream has the agility to craft bespoke itineraries to cater to travel demand as the situation develops.
