Due to unrest in Tunisia, SeaDream Yacht Club has revised its itinerary for SeaDream II voyage number 21120, which will sail May 18 to May 28, 2011, from Rome, Italy. The port of La Goulette, Tunisia has been replaced with Xlendi, Gozo Island, Malta.
"Based upon the tension in Tunisia, we feel the safety and security there remains uncertain. For that reason, we have elected not to call on the port of La Goulette, Tunisia," said Bob Lepisto, president of SeaDream. "Instead, we’ve chosen to call on the peaceful island of Gozo. It has some of the Mediterranean’s best dive sites and I think our guests will find this port highly enjoyable."
Gozo, Malta's sister island, is situated in the heart of the Mediterranean just 60 nautical miles south of Sicily. Greener and smaller than Malta; life on Gozo moves at a leisurely pace. In summer, the island is awash with oleander, bougainvillea and geranium. In addition to calling on Gozo Island, the 10-night voyage also features destinations including Bonifacio, Corsica; Sardinia, Italy; Sicily, Italy and Amalfi & Capri, Italy. Rates start at $5,999 per person.
Itineraries for SeaDream I & II include the Eastern Caribbean, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and the Amazon.
