One of the biggest concerns we hear from meeting and event planners is “How do I top last year’s event?”
Here’s one venue that’s guaranteed to exceed all expectations: an all-inclusive, deluxe yacht. SeaDream Yacht Club’s twin mega yachts offer a balance of casual comfort and refined elegance. SeaDream’s yachting lifestyle offers a completely different experience from big-ship cruising. During leisure time, your group can be as active or relaxed as they choose.
Here’s a taste of the SeaDream yacht experience:
- Sail into intimate yachting harbors and ports
- Stay overnight in port to enjoy the nightlife
- Dine alfresco on deck or in the elegant Dining Salon
- Play with the water toys or swim from the yacht’s Marina
- Relax on the spacious pool deck or in the jacuzzi
- Stroll the moonlit deck and breath in the sea air
- Join a shoreside activity with the crew (even shopping with Chef!)
- Luxuriate at the SeaDream Spa
- Enjoy dancing and cocktails at “Top of the Yacht” bar with 360 ° views
- Sleep under the stars on a Signature SeaDream Balinese Dream Bed
- Watch Starlit Movies on deck
- Begin the day with complimentary Tai Chi or Yoga session out on deck
- Play golf while at sea with the SeaDream Golf Simulator, featuring 30 different courses
Whether dining alfresco on deck, or in the elegantly appointed Dining Salon, SeaDream’s world-class cuisine and impeccable service makes meals aboard a SeaDream yacht an unforgettable experience for your event attendees.
Your group will always enjoy “Cuisine A La Minute” with the freshest of ingredients aboard their SeaDream yacht, often selected by the chef locally. A fine wine is the perfect compliment to the artfully prepared menus, and a wide selection of wines is included with your meals. As an alternative to the dining room, a tiered outdoor restaurant is transformed from a casual breakfast and lunch spot into a stunning evening venue in the evenings – complete with candles and table linens.
Passionate About Service
With a maximum of 112 guests served by an award-winning crew of 95, your event participants are guaranteed to receive warm and personalized service. It’s all in the details and special touches – from the cold towels your attendees are handed as they return from a day in port, to the fruit kabobs they’re offered while relaxing on deck or lounging on one of SeaDream’s own Balinese beds overlooking the sea.
Yacht Accommodations that Rival Deluxe Hotels
SeaDream’s oceanview staterooms feature a sitting area; entertainment center with flat-screen TV, DVD and CD players; and iPod dock and data ports for Internet access (laptops available upon request). All rooms are luxuriously appointed with Bvlgari® bath amenities, plush Turkish towels, 100% Belgian cotton linens and mini-bars stocked with soft drinks, mineral water and beer.
What would yachting be without the proper toys? Both yachts have a retractable Water Sports Marina providing a variety of exciting water activities. Your group can enjoy complimentary water sports equipment, including:
- Wave Runners
- Laser Sailboats, Hobie Cat Catamarans
- Stand Upon Paddle Boards
- Banana Boat, wake boards and water skis
- Snorkeling Gear
- Zodiacs for water skiing and inflatables
- Floating Island
Champagne and Caviar Splash
If you’re looking for a group event during your program to top all others, this is it: SeaDream Yacht Club’s signature “Champagne and Caviar Splash”, offered when there is a beach available shoreside; or “Shaken, Not Stirred” party on deck. A special celebration hosted by SeaDream’s Officers & Crew!
One of the big advantages of small-ship sailing is the ability to visit off-the-beaten track ports and fabulous yachting harbors that aren’t accessible during a big-ship cruise. SeaDream yachts sail to the most enchanting destinations in the Caribbean, Costa Rica, Mediterranean, Northern Europe, and Asia.
New Asia Voyages
Asia, an exotic mix of cultures, languages and food, is a seafarer’s dream – and an amazing incentive or charter destination! From October 2013 through April 2014, SeaDream II will explore new ground as she visits Asia’s most striking locations. Your group can now experience the same awe and wonder as the early spice traders, as they explore some of the most beautiful places in the world. There will be a total of 18 unique voyages in Asia, including several 7-night itineraries. Imagine sailing:
Roundtrip Singapore, with visits to several exotic ports in Malaysia and Thailand
Singapore to Bangkok, combining a visit to Malaysia with the wonders of Thailand
Singapore to Bali, to discover the beauty of Indonesia (includes two full days at sea for meetings or relaxation)
Phuket to Singapore, including an overnight and several late night stays in exotic Thailand and Malaysia
Perfect for Yacht Charter
Nothing can compare to being part of an exclusive group on a privately chartered yacht sailing to dreamy destinations. It’s an experience that your attendees cannot duplicate on their own! When you charter a SeaDream “yacht of your own” for a meeting, incentive program, reunion or special interest group, you have complete privacy and the ultimate freedom to customize the entire program, including the itinerary.
When you compare your SeaDream Yacht program with a traditional five-star hotel or resort, the value component is unmistakable – and remarkable! Your voyage includes:
- Ocean view accommodations
- Gourmet meals
- Wine with lunch and dinner
- Open bar with select premium brands
- Use of water toys and mountain bikes
- Fitness Center and golf simulator
- SeaDream’s “Champagne and Caviar Splash” or “Shaken, Not Stirred” parties (as applicable)

Doesn’t your top talent deserve the best?
