The highly revered Berlitz Cruising and Cruise Ships guidebook is world’s most authoritative and longest-running guide to cruising and cruise ships by Douglas Ward, the world’s foremost independent authority on cruising and cruise ships. Now in its thirty-fourth year of continuous printing, this seminal book also comes with a free app and eBook, and features the hugely-anticipated, highly-revered Berlitz Evaluations and Scores.
SeaDream I and II are both praised by Ward for “unabashed but discreet sophistication,” catering for guests seeking “a small ship with excellent food…and fine European-style service in surroundings that are elegant and refined while remaining informal.” Commenting on the high guest to crew ratio, the guide proclaims that sailing on SeaDream is “really like having your own private yacht, in which hospitality, anticipation and personal recognition are art forms practiced to a high level” with staff who are “delightful and accommodating.”
“We are honored to once again be recognized by one of the world’s leading authorities on cruising,” said Andreas Brynestad, SeaDream Yacht Club EVP of sales, marketing and operations. “We take great pride in providing a ‘yachting’ lifestyle aboard our vessels and will continue working toward surpassing our guests’ expectations on every voyage.”
SeaDream Yacht Club itineraries are designed to call upon the world’s most intimate ports. From May through October, both yachts sail the Mediterranean Sea. From November through April, they visit the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. The vessels are also available for private charters, providing customizable itineraries and a bespoke experience on the intimate boutique ships.
