Sea Dream Yacht
September 21-28, 2024
In the early fall of 2024, we bring to you yet another fantastic cruise opportunity in the Western Mediterranean. This time, we are changing things up and sailing on a luxury yacht, The Sea Dream. This fantastic vessel provides for accommodations for only 112 guests maximum, making your CE adventure a luxurious trip to some of the prettiest Italian ports of call, including Portofino.
Our cruise departs from Rome on September 21, 2024, and heads north with stops in Elba, Portovenere (site of several of our previous CE in Italy & Europe meetings), Portofino, Corsica, and Santo Stefano, a jewel along the Tuscany Mediterranean coastline. September is still warm, but sailing north from Rome, we’ll avoid the heat and humidity of Italy in September, and we’ll avoid the crowds!
Sailing on the Sea Dream Luxury Yacht is quite an experience. With a limited passenger capacity of only 112 guests, there is about a 1:1 passenger to crew ratio, ensuring amazing service on this beautiful ship. The ship itself is beautifully appointed, with staterooms of various sizes, all with wonderful sea views, and comfortable furnishings. The cruise is highlighted by 5-star dining, and all of your meals, drinks and gratuities included in the price. With an on-board pool, Balinese dream beds, a fitness center, and a cozy bar, there is plenty to do on board. But with the fantastic ports of call on this itinerary, your time on land will be full of fantastic scenery, local fare, and of course the Italian and European flair associated with the Italian Riviera. Oh, and who can mention the Italian Riviera without mentioning a casino? There is a casino on board! Spa services? Got you covered! Luxury accommodations, luxury dining, luxury ports of call. You will love this venue that we’ve put together.
On this cruise venue, a total of 12 hours of COPE accredited CME will be offered. Of those 12 hours, the first 6 hours will be offered in Rome the day before the yacht sets sail so you will need to arrive in Rome a few days before our departure.
The land-based CE will be in the morning, leaving you time to explore The Eternal City.
call, giving you the opportunity to visit each location on the cruise.
All of our CME is COPE accredited, co-sponsored by the Illinois College of Optometry and approved for Florida re-licensure by CE Broker.
Since we finish back in Rome a week after departure, you also have the opportunity to stay in Italy and explore other areas of this magnificent country. That is one of the nicest things about our meetings: when you arrive and when you depart is entirely up to you. With this venue, although the sailing dates and ports of call are firm, your pre and post cruise itineraries are entirely up to you!
