SeaDream II Set for Feb. Launch

December 11, 2001
SeaDream Yacht Club, the “new” cruise line that purchased its first two ships -- Sea Goddess I and Sea Goddess II -- from Carnival Corp.’s Seabourn, is evolving. As we reported last summer, SeaDream, created by former Seabourn founder Atle Brynestad, officially took possession of the 116-passenger ships in September.

At this point, the cruise line, helmed by former Seabourn honcho Larry Pimentel, plans to emphasize ultra-upscale on an ultra-casual level and is aiming at a relatively younger, albeit free-spending, cruise passenger. Currently, SeaDream II is the first to undergo an extensive drydock -- which, in addition to general redecorating also includes addition of a new outdoor cafe, golf simulator-movie screen, expanded spa and a marina with kayaks and wave runners. SeaDream II is slated for a February launch.

SeaDream I, which will undergo a similar refurbishment, goes into drydock in April.

Itineraries are pretty straightforward: both ships will sail week-long voyages in Europe during the summer months and in the Caribbean in winter.
