SeaDream doubles Norway sailings amid ‘unprecedented’ demand

SeaDream Yacht Club

SeaDream Yacht Club has more than doubled the number of sailings it will offer in Norway in 2026 after 2025 voyages to the destination sold out at a “record-breaking” pace more than two years in advance.

“The demand for 2025 surpassed our wildest imaginations,” said SeaDream founder, owner and chair Atle Brynestad. “We are thrilled to return in 2026 with even more ways to experience the unparalleled beauty of Norway.”

The series of voyages, ranging from seven- to 11-nights, will include encounters with nature, fjord sailings,  late-night departures, overnight stays in Ålesund or Lofoten Islands and visits to small communities.

“We have carefully hand-picked some of the most breath-taking, inspiring and unique destinations in the Northern Hemisphere and curated them to capture the essence of Norway,” Brynestad added.

“This is a perfect destination for small-ship experiences and there is simply no better way to enjoy the true beauty of Norway than by yachting.”

Demand ‘surpassed our wildest imaginations’, says SeaDream boss

As with the sold-out 2025 voyages, the 2026 season will be operated by the newly upgraded SeaDream II, which will offer a Trollfjord & Lofoten Islands itinerary and a Yachting The Norwegian Fjords trip.

Before heading to Norway, SeaDream II starts its 2026 European season with the eight-day Portugal, Spain and France Discovery itinerary from Lisbon to Bordeaux which includes an overnight in Vigo, Bilbao, San Sebastian and Saint-Jean-de-Luz.

It comes after Mark Schmitt rejoined the cruise line as sales director for UK and Ireland.
