Silversea CruisesOctober 04 - 2012 : SeaDream Yacht Club Set to Sail in Asia

Much to the excitement of the line’s fans SeaDream Yacht Club has announced a series of voyages in Asia and Northern Australia beginning in late 2013.

The “Passage to the Far East” will depart Athens, Greece in October 2013 and includes a transit of the Suez Canal, excursions to Egypt’s fascinating archeological sites (accompanied by Egyptologist) and visits some intriguing ports before arriving in Mumbai, India. The yacht then sets sail for Singapore via Colombo and Phuket offering 18 unique voyages in the region: 7-15 days in duration with opportunities to combine voyages for a longer holiday.  
Scheduled to stay in Asia until April 2014, itineraries are varied and include ports in Sri Lanka, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Myanmar (Burma), East Timor, Northern Australia, Indonesia, New Guinea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Hong Kong and China.
