Emilio Freeman is joining SeaDream Yacht Club as VP destinations & revenue management. In addition to itinerary development, he takes on responsibility for the Yachting Land Adventure program, the company’s shore excursion portfolio.

Andreas Brynestad, EVP sales, marketing and operations, noted Freeman's wealth of experience in the areas of management, itinerary development and marketing for other lines.

Freeman most recently was VP itinerary at The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. Before that, he directed itinerary planning at Hurtigruten. Earlier roles were director of brand operations and destination delivery, responsible for shore excursions for Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises. He spent many years with The World, ultimately as SVP operations.

Prior positions were with Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Viking Line and Royal Caribbean.

'I am excited about joining such an award-winning brand,' Freeman said. 'SeaDream is known for its highly desirable small port yachting itineraries, remarkably genuine service, and, of course, its world-class cuisine. What an incredible brand to work with,' he added.

Freeman will be based from SeaDream’s Miami office and work with the teams in Miami and Oslo.
