The SeaDream Yacht Club is offering travelers an incredible, luxury cruise on its new mega yacht the SeaDream Innovation. One of club’s amazing itineraries features a three-month journey to Antarctica and the Arctic. The trip is expensive—a ticket for one costs US$61,520, including service fees—so start saving now if you want to go on the inaugural trip.
The “grand voyage” pole-to-pole expedition combines several itineraries and doesn’t stop at a single port more than once. During its inaugural season, the SeaDream Innovation will visit all seven continents, 49 countries, and over 200 ports.
The yacht accommodates 220 passengers, who can start traveling the world starting September 2021. The SeaDream Innovation features all suites ranging in size from 312 to 323 square feet. Many of them have balconies and soaking tubs. The largest suites are 1,000-square-feet large and have a separate master bedroom, sitting area, large balcony, and walk-in closet.
Three onboard marinas will accommodate Zodiacs, kayaks, sailboats, and wave runners. An in-ocean swimming pool will feature a floating dock, reports Afar.
What sets this 88-day cruise apart is that it will travel to both Antarctica and the Arctic. Most cruise lines typically visit one or the other.
The SeaDream Innovation departs Ushuaia, Argentina, on Feb. 8, 2022, and ends in Svalbard, Norway, on May 7, 2022. Passengers will visit Antarctica and Patagonia as well as Punta del Este, Uruguay, and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on the coast of South America. The yacht will then cross the Atlantic Ocean and visit Cape Verde in West Africa before stopping in Casablanca, Lisbon, Bordeaux, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and other ports. Finally, passengers will visit the Arctic Circle.
The SeaDream Innovation will offer other Antarctica and Arctic itineraries, as well as a 12-day Southeast Asia cruise from Hong Kong to Bangkok and a 15-day New Zealand and Australia tour that includes New Year’s Eve celebrations in Sydney Harbour.
