is SeaDream Business Incentives ?
Club is the innovative new yachting venture
by Norwegian entrepreneur Atle Brynestad who
founded the highly acclaimed Seabourn Cruise
Line and Larry Pimentel, who was President
of Seabourn under Brynestad and later President
and CEO of the merged companies Cunard-Seabourn.
Pimentel is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
of SeaDream Yacht Club and a co-owner. Brynestad
and Pimentel have brought into SeaDream a
small group of colleagues with vast industry
experience. The company now operates the two
ultra-luxury mega yachts, SeaDream I and SeaDream
II. They were originally introduced as the
Sea Goddess twins and were the prototypes
of the luxury, intimate yachting experience.
2. Why is SeaDream called a
features an open and unstructured
ambience and provides guests the ability
to fulfill their own dreams at their
own pace. No clocks, no crowds, no
lines, no stress, no business deadlines.
The key word for the SeaDream yachting
experience is "unstructured."
It's all about personal choice. Think
of it as a free-form holiday. Corporate
charter yacht SeaDream is a yacht
company, not a cruise line.
3. What are some of the highlights
of the SeaDream yachting experience?
Flexible Schedules and Travel Itineraries
- Although the SeaDream yachts depart
their first port and arrive at their
last port as scheduled, arrivals and
departures at intermediate ports are
not necessarily cast in stone. Captains
have the authority to adjust the travel
itinerary for local opportunities
such as making an unscheduled call
at a small port to visit a local fish
market or to remain longer in a secluded
bay so guests can enjoy a few more
hours of water sports.
in Key Ports - Cruise ships usually
arrive at ports of call in the early morning
and depart in the evening the same day.
Corporate charter yacht SeaDream overnights
at such ports as Monte Carlo and St. Tropez
in the Mediterranean because the action
in those ports dont get started until late
in the evening.
the Pantry - SeaDream guests dine in
an indoor Dining Salon, in an outdoor Topside
Restaurant or from Room Service. They can
also raid the pantry 24-hours a day for
cookies and milk or make themselves their
own customized sandwich---just as they can
and Staff Lead Guests on personal off-ship
Experiences - Officers and staff frequently
lead guests to favorite sites since they
know these sailing regions intimately.
No Tux for
Guys, No Gala Gowns for Gals - the SeaDream
yachting experience is a casual affair.
There is no formal dress code.
