SeaDream ship ‘first to return to Black Sea’

SeaDream II has become the first cruise vessel to visit several Black Sea ports since the start of the pandemic.

The SeaDream Yacht Club vessel made calls into the Turkish island of Bozcaada, Burgas and Varna in Bulgaria, Constanta in Romania and Odessa in Ukraine.

Burgas has not seen a cruise ship dock in more than three years.

The ship is due into Istanbul on Saturday (October 2) as the first to use a $1.7 billion new Galataport in the city, which includes an underground terminal, claimed to be the first of its kind.

Since resuming voyages this summer, the company’s twin 112-passenger mega-yachts SeaDream I and SeaDream II have called on ports in Croatia, France, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, Slovenia and Spain.

Itineraries and destinations vice president Emilio Freeman said: “It’s exciting for our guests to experience new, unique destinations, and these regions are pleased to see tourism returning.”
