Shalom! Start studying up on Hebrew because SeaDream Yacht Club has expanded its Mediterranean voyages to include the controversial Middle Eastern state of Israel.

Come 2021 and SeaDream Yacht Club will make its first journey to the town of Ashdod, which many describe as a gateway to Israel’s cultural hubs such as Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

The Middle Eastern destination is one of six new ports included in the cruise line’s 2021 season and will be featured in SeaDream II‘s 11-night Mediterranean voyage departing from Piraeus, Greece and stopping by other ports in Cyprus and Turkey.


Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing & Operations for SeaDream Yacht Club, Andreas Brynestad, said the brand is looking forward to its first call to Israel, which will no doubt meet the line’s aim to provide guests with “unique” experiences and itineraries.

“We have a great season planned and are confident both new and returning guests will love exploring the Mediterranean with SeaDream I and SeaDream II.”

Other new destinations for the 2021 season include Ksamil, Albania; Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer, France; Otranto, Italy; Haifa, Israel; and Agios Nikolaus, Greece.

The cruise line has committed more time for SeaDream I and SeaDream II to cruise the Adriatic Sea, which is experiencing increased demand from cruisers. There’ll also be at least one overnight call in each itinerary, allowing travellers to experience Europe nightlife.

Bookings are now open on the new program, click here for more information.
