Experience 7 Nights/8 Days on a very special cruise-yacht voyage for a fortunate few into the beautiful waters of the Caribbean onboard the utterly exclusive mega-yacht SeaDream I. With the highly convenient embarkation port of San Juan Puerto Rico and disembarkation port of St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, each offering excellent air service, SeaDream I will sail to some of the most delightful islands of the French West Indies plus the US and British Virgin Islands, including a full 24 hours in Gustavia on St Barts, considered the most chic and trendy destination in the entire Caribbean. Our golf schedule will incorporate three of the area’s finest courses; Four Seasons Nevis, Royal St. Kitts, and the Greg Norman designed Cuisinart Golf Club on Anguilla. The program includes greens fees and cart fees and will of course be fully managed by PerryGolf, from tee times to golf equipment handling and ground transportation all completely arranged.
Guests will also have plenty time to relax and enjoy all that the islands have to offer. Back on board you will be utterly spoiled. Carrying just over 100 guests, and with an award winning crew of 95, the yachts of SeaDream are consistently ranked as the finest in the small ship category by all the definitive cruise guides. Quality of service and outstanding dining are SeaDream hallmarks. The experience is entirely all-inclusive, with dining, boutique wines, open bar, and gratuities covered. If the golfing wasn't enough to lure you onboard, perhaps consider another major highlight of the week - the fabled SeaDream Champagne and Caviar Splash™ or luxuriating in the SeaDream's fabulous spa offering tempting treatments to pamper you into oblivion. This really is the perfect antidote to the winter blues.

DAY 2 - SUNDAY: CRUZ BAY, ST JOHN
St. John is a spectacular Virgin Island with exceptional beaches, great restaurants and breathtaking hikes. Cruz Bay Town in St. John is of great restaurants, shops, watersport outfitters, bars and waterfront shops, and other points of attraction. Coral Bay, once a secluded fishing village, is home to more great restaurants, bars and shops. St. John Island is idyllic, with its miles of white sandy beaches, crystal water and beautiful palm trees. The island is a favorite spot for snorkeling and scuba diving. (In port from 8:00AM - 9:30PM)
DAY 3 - MONDAY: SANDY GROUND, ANGUILLA
Anguilla is a British overseas territory. It is one of the most northerly of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles, lying east of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands and directly north of Saint Martin. (In port from 7:30AM - 3:00PM)
GOLF ROUND: CuisinArt Resort, Designed by Greg Norman this is the only course in Anguilla. From the very first hole a spectacular vista of St.Martin and the Caribbean Sea awaits. Dramatic elevation changes and challenging holes make a great Caribbean golf experience. Enjoy a late afternoon sail to the renowned island of St Barts where we will anchor off Gustavia and remain for 24 hours.
DAY 4 - TUESDAY: ST BARTS, FWI
First let's sort out this charming little island’s name. It's officially St. Barthélemy, as tagged by 17th century French settlers, plus there are nicknames including St. Barth’s and St. Barts. We’re going with St. Barts and it has a silent "s" at the end. Now you’re ready for the only overnight on our schedule. Large cruise ships are not permitted by law to dock which means you’ll find all the duty free shopping you can imagine without the lines. There are no high rise buildings either, two-stories is the refreshing limit. There are also no timeshare salesmen, no beach vendors and nary a traffic light on this eight square mile speck of paradise. What you will find is true tranquility, glitterati style. (In port until 10:00PM)
DAY 5 - WEDNESDAY: CHARLESTOWN, NEVIS
Nevis is only 7 miles long and 5 miles wide, with natural vegetation that is unparalleled. From the top of the 3,232-foot Nevis Peak to the depths of the clear waters offshore, there is a world of flora and fauna to be explored. Nevis is also the spot to explore the other half of your Caribbean getaway, under water. This place is perfect for the first time or casual scuba diver. Ample instruction is provided but no license is required. You’ll be under the close and constant supervision of an expert dive master who will guide you to amazing shallow water sites like "Hot Springs”, "Bug’s Hole" and "The Church Reef".
GOLF ROUND: Four Seasons Nevis, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. This course has wonderful views over to St Kitts and enjoys some dramatic changes in elevation. The palm lined fairways are imaginatively routed around the slopes of the dormant Mount Nevis volcano. (In port from 8:00AM - 11:00PM)
DAY 6 - THURSDAY: SOUTH FRIARS BAY, ST KITTS
Intoxicating natural beauty, sunny skies, warm waters, and white sandy beaches combine to make St. Kitts one of the most seductive spots in the Caribbean. Christopher Columbus first spotted St. Kitts in 1493, when it was populated with native tribes, but the Europeans didn't colonize until the British arrived in 1623. Its strategic location and valuable sugar trade led to an advanced and luxurious development that was among the best in the Colonial Caribbean
GOLF: Royal St. Kitts Golf Club is a spectacular Caribbean golf course. Reopened in 2004, the course is played over 125 irrigated acres of lush grass and allows golfers to play along both the Caribbean Sea and on the Atlantic Ocean. Water hazards are prominent on 10 holes, while 80 bunkers and a multitude of coconut palm trees make for a memorable Caribbean golf experience. (In port from 7:30AM - 6:00PM)
DAY 7 - FRIDAY: FISCHER’S COVE, VIRGIN GORDA, BVI
Virgin Gorda entices travelers with its yacht clubs, quiet coves, safe anchorages and luxury resorts and villas. It is the third-largest and second most populous of the British Virgin Islands.
SeaDream’s signature Champagne & Caviar Splash™ will put an exclamation point on your voyage. A shore side celebration of the yachting lifestyle, guests and crew reflect on good times shared and to meeting again with flowing champagne toasts and caviar. A gourmet barbecue served on a white sandy beach will follow. At the sound of the yacht’s horn…play the music, let the bubbles flow and enjoy a bite of caviar. Tomorrow can wait! (In port from 8:00AM - 10:00PM)
DAY 8 - SATURDAY: CHARLOTTE AMALIE, ST THOMAS, USVI
Disembark SeaDream I at 9:00AM. Transfer to the airport for your return flight home.
