Anniversary ahead? Make it special with Romantic cruising

January 25th, 2023 by Ian Magley

Planning on a romantic trip? You might have a lot on your mind, but if you want to make it the most memorable, choose the best romantic cruises for couples. Wedding anniversary cruises are a wonderful opportunity to remember the years you’ve spent together and look forward to the future, whether you’re celebrating your first, 15, or 50th year together. There are as many different ways to celebrate an anniversary cruise as there are individuals: go all out, be the focus of attention, share peaceful times, invite loved ones, or celebrate alone.

Tips to make your romantic cruise perfect

You won’t have time to see, taste, and do everything that cruises have to offer by the time you get off the ship. Time management is the secret to a memorable and enjoyable anniversary celebration.

Even while a few days spent dozing on a ship’s deck could be enjoyable, travel brings fresh and thrilling experiences!

There are many ways to celebrate, whether your preference is shore excursions, fine food, or quiet serenity. The following suggestions will help make your anniversary cruise unforgettable:

  • Watch a Sunrise or Sunset Together

Nothing compares to the sunrises and sunsets you experience at sea. Set an alarm one morning and see the dawn before everyone else is up.
Don’t give up if you don’t get up early. Even better would be the sunsets! It’s special to be out on the wide sea as the sun sets! Have a drink of wine and a snack before dinner while conversing with one other.

  • Relax at The Spa

To indulge in some relaxation activity, go to The Spa services available on the SeaDream Cruise. By making an appointment for acupuncture or a couple’s massage, you can lessen your stress. Your stiff muscles can be relaxed and weariness eliminated by wrapping yourself in seaweed from head to toe. We are the only company offering only Thai-certified spa at Sea. A variety of spa favorites are offered by our highly qualified Thai-trained therapists, including aromatherapy, customized facials, traditional Thai massage for men, women, and couples, as well as detoxifying therapies.

On the deck or near the water, there are free yoga and tai chi classes every day. Including Sisley Paris, Thalgo, Harnn, Hermès, Essie, CND, and Moroccanoil, the SeaDream spa offers a broad range of services along with well-known brands for both services and shopping on board.

  • Renew Your Vows

There is no greater way to express that you would do it all over again than to do it. Most cruise lines offer vow renewal packages at an additional cost. If you want to rekindle your feeling, your captain can officiate the ceremony. In case you want to include your loved ones, you can invite the family and relatives by choosing a friend’s package otherwise a couple’s package will suffice. SeaDream was Voted #1 for ROMANCE by Cruise Critic year after year, this ship is perfect for couples celebrating significant occasions, such as honeymoons, marriages, anniversaries, and vow renewals, with its distinctive sunrise and sunset romance ceremonies.

  • Sunrise Ceremony

Meet the captain on deck at the bow of the yacht as the new day breaks, and welcome it by creating lifelong memories. A wonderfully cooked Champagne breakfast with a view of the sea should be enjoyed after the ceremony.

  • Sunset Ceremony

Join the Captain on deck as the sun sets in the horizon after a great day spent aboard your yacht.
Enjoy canapés and Champagne cocktails after the ceremony as you toast the new memories you are creating.

  • Stay Up for the Late Night Activities

On our cruise, enjoy a romantic evening with 24-hour room service. Or, add some unique touches to your shore vacation at Adults Only Retreat. Visit the wine bar and rum bar aboard the cruise.

Do you and your partner dance? If not, would you like to learn? Couples have so many chances to dance, and it’s very lovely to see!

You can take part in the free dance lessons provided on many cruises even if you aren’t a dancer by observing couples dance. Ever wished you could dance the salsa? Now is your opportunity! What fun it will be to attempt, even if you fail miserably!

  • Schedule a Photo Shoot

Our crew of experienced onboard photographers will be on hand to record your memorable moments throughout your trip. In the Photo Gallery, you can explore these images and pick your favorite ones to print and bring with you.
Consider having a couple’s photo session at The Studio to commemorate your important event. These expert images, which were taken in a quiet environment, are the ideal way to document your amazing anniversary cruise.

  • Share a Romantic Dinner

Consider planning a romantic meal for two on your special day if you’re on board with it. You can accomplish this in a few different ways. The simplest solution is to forego the main dining area and spend extra money at one of the more intimate, specialist eateries with a date-night atmosphere. Alternatively, call room service, and prepare a romantic lunch for two in your cabin with a set of battery-operated tea lights, a white tablecloth, and a picnic blanket (if your room has adequate floor space). The ultimate balcony dining experience from Princess, which includes a white tablecloth and waiter-served dinner service outside on your private balcony, is one of the most romantic options available.

  • Do Something Simple

Take your loved one and do something routine for an hour as part of your wonderful cruise line anniversary celebration. Play cards or watch a movie together, or do something else you both enjoy, and do it in a wonderful location.
Let spending your anniversary by the water serve as a constant reminder of how unique and precious your years have been and will continue to be.

  • Check Something From Your Couple’s Bucket List

An activity that you and your significant other have put on your couple’s bucket list is perhaps more appropriate now than ever. You will not only be creating new memories with each other, one item off your bucket list at a time, but it will also be a fantastic opportunity for you two to bond.

  • Sign Up For Fun Shore Excursions

Shore excursions make it simple to enjoy yourself while in port without having to deal with organizing or attempting to find your trustworthy tour operator. Couples of all types, from the adventurous and thrill-seeking to the culture vultures and those looking to unwind, can enjoy shore excursions.

Bottom line

So, while you are at it, SeaDream is here to fulfill your dream of getting the highest quality of the best romantic cruises for couples. We have different packages fulfilling your idea of a romantic date for the next anniversary. The opportunity for a romantic or luxury vacation doesn’t end here. We can’t emphasize enough how much fun you could have by selecting a yacht charter for your upcoming vacation.

Whether you and your significant other are celebrating a very special occasion or you simply want to spend some quality time together in a totally different setting, our leased boats are the perfect choice for a romantic adventure. Plan to reconnect while unwinding in paradise while being served by the crew of your rented boat, propose while sipping champagne while surrounded by blue waters, or celebrate an anniversary with your best friends. So, be it a cruise or yacht, we make every plan of your special and memorable. Reach out now for more information.

7 Reasons Why Yachting Journeys Lead to a Lifetime of Memories 

January 23rd, 2023 by Devin Coor
SeaDream Destination - Kotor

Traveling by yacht provides unforgettable experiences for its easygoing ambiance and rich destination engagement. 

It's Yachting, Not Cruising | Enjoy The Difference

As travelers look to expand their horizons in 2023, some still haven’t given up on mega-cruising’s larger-than-life deck plans designed so that you don’t need to interact with the people with whom you’re traveling. But an intimate sailing on a yacht—the ultimate small-ship sailing experience—is a difference others choose to fully embrace. The elegant informality and easygoing ambiance provide a delightful alternative to other forms of travel. How do you know if traveling by yacht is meant for you? Or rather, how can it not be? As you ponder, ask yourself to envision why bigger is not better, and why small truly is beautiful.   

SeaDream Watertoys
SeaDream Marina Toys

A yachting journey does not try to be all things to all people. Your sailing experience is authentic and true to the yachting culture; there is a casual freedom to your travel experience, and a focus on, in, or around the water. With SeaDream, you can enjoy our signature Marina Platform with all the water toys for a proper yachting vacation—even a 24-foot-long water slide. 

Yachting Journeys with SeaDream
Intimate Yachting Journey with SeaDream

The experience is personable and intimate. The term “yachting” is not only defined by the size of your vessel but by its onboard lifestyle. SeaDream’s twin 56-couple yachts are favored for their elegant informality and anticipatory award-winning service provided by a crew of 95. Look forward to more than a meet and greet; every crew member remembers your name and knows your favorite drink and culinary preferences. With SeaDream, it’s easy to build genuine relationships with the captain, officers, and entire crew. 

Yachts drop anchor along the coastline, taking you to off-the-beaten track locations. SeaDream yachts carry you to destinations that larger ships simply cannot reach—exclusive harbors, hidden islands, and secluded beaches in the British Virgin Islands, West Indies, Greek Isles, Dalmatian Coast, and French and Italian Rivieras, to name a few. And the nimbleness of your yacht allows for unexpected and delightful calls along the way—where you can engage in as little or as much local charm as you like.

With SeaDream, very special landings are probable. Unlike with large cruise ships, which leave the ports they call at in the evening, at just 344 feet long, SeaDream I and SeaDream II anchor in exclusive marinas and secluded bays until late in the evening or even overnight—with enough time to enjoy the nightlife in yachting playgrounds like St. Barths, St. Thomas, Monte Carlo, and St. Tropez. 

Exclusive experiences are at the ready. Whether it’s an impromptu dinner with the Captain, caviar and champagne served in the surf, or a day spent in the only Thai-certified spa at sea, be pampered and relaxed or active and adventurous while sailing the most incredible coastlines the Caribbean, Mediterranean, and Scandinavia have to offer. 

A yachting journey redefines al fresco. With SeaDream’s modernized twin yachts, you have the option to breathe in every detail of your day: gourmet dine, take a sunrise yoga and Thai chi class, get an afternoon massage, or sleep on deck—with all activities offered in the open air.  

No buffets, no lines. Just ample space, on/off ease, and highly anticipatory service, with your personal stateroom steward and available-anytime Concierge. So open, you may have parts of the yacht all to yourself. 

Make a lifetime of connections and friendships. With such a small number of guests sailing with you, look forward to connections happening organically, as those who choose to yacht are like-minded and tend to share similar backgrounds and interests. 

Are you ready to experience the secluded islands and playful yachting harbors of the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Scandinavia, and Northern Europe?

10 Best Yachting Destinations

November 9th, 2022 by Devin Coor

In Scandinavia & Northern Europe 

The Northern Europe sailing region stretches from the historic British Channel Islands through scenic Scandinavia, with a sailing season from early May through August. It’s then that you’ll experience long hours of daylight, verdant forests in full flower, and comfortable, summer temperatures ideal for discovering the best of the region. SeaDream’s Scandinavia and Northern Europe voyages offer a dramatic mix of mountains, seas, forests and fjords, quaint villages, graceful castles, and celebrated Old Town centers. Yachting Land Adventures visit classical museums, baroque palaces, Renaissance castles, and ancient cathedrals. 

The Norwegian Fjords  

Nowhere are there fjords to match the grandeur of those in Norway, where the clear water reflects the mountains like a mirror. Sail between soaring granite cliffs and spy mountainside farms, charming villages, and an array of wildlife along this stunning coastline.  

Lofoten Islands 

Lofoten

Norway’s celebrated archipelago is heralded for its dramatic scenery, with peaks like the Svolvaergeita pinnacle jutting up into the sky. This is where majestic mountains meet brilliantly white sandy beaches, fishing villages dot the coastlines, and hiking trails crisscross their way through some of the most breathtaking landscapes in Europe.  

Ålesund, Norway  

Ålesund, Norway - Best Yachting Destinations - SeaDream

Norvoy, Aspoy, and Hessa, three islands at the entrance to Storfjord (“big fjord”), join as the pleasant town of Ålesund. The city is home to klippfisk, the dried and salted cod used to make the famed dish bacalao. Jugendstil, or Art Nouveau, was very popular at the turn of the twentieth century when designers incorporated it into the city’s architecture. Ålesund’s Museum houses photos and a model of the 1898 town layout, offering a glimpse into the city’s past.  

Stockholm, Sweden  

Stockholm, Sweden - SeaDream Destinations

An enchanting municipality at the meeting point of Lake Mälaren and the Baltic Sea, the Swedish capital is one of the world’s great maritime cities. Stockholm’s maritime doorstep is a magnificent archipelago of more than 24,000 islands and islets–many just big enough to support a single cottage. As you yacht toward the 13th-century “city that floats on water,” landmarks such as Storkyrkan (Stockholm Cathedral) and Three Crowns Tower come into view. The medieval Gamla Stan district is the historic core of the original Stadsholmen Island settlement.  

Visby, Gotland, Sweden  

Visby, Gotland, Sweden  - Best Yachting Destinations - SeaDream

The Hanseatic walled trading town of Visby on the island of Gotland dates from the Viking Age, formed on a shore with a natural harbor, sheltered by steep cliff formations. This fairytale locale is a UNESCO World Heritage site, known for its well-preserved town wall and medieval fortification and towers. The town’s abundant churches include St. Mary’s Cathedral and the medieval ruins of St. Nicolai and St. Karin.  

Copenhagen, Denmark  

Copenhagen, Denmark

Reputed to be the happiest city in the world and home to fairytale author Hans Christian Andersen, Copenhagen is defined by its canals, waterside cafés, and beautiful Tivoli Gardens. Indre By, the city’s historic center, houses Frederiksstaden, an 18th-century rococo district, home to the royal family’s Amalienborg Palace. Nearby Renaissance-era Rosenborg Castle is a sight to behold, surrounded by gardens and home to the crown jewels.  

Helsinki, Finland  

Helsinki, Finland - SeaDream Destinations

Helsinki showcases both the traditional with the modern, in every sense. The city’s architecture features stunning Art Nouveau buildings and sleek modern structures including the Sibelius Monument, while you explore the country’s rich heritage at the Suomenlinna Fortress or the Seurasaari open-air museum.  

Tallinn, Estonia  

Tallinn, Estonia  - Best Yachting Destinations - SeaDream

Tallinn, Estonia’s capital on the Baltic Sea, is the country’s cultural hub. Its legendary Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe, boasts cozy corner cafés, hidden courtyards, and Kiek in de Kök, a 15th-century defensive tower. Lose yourself in the twisting streets of the capital’s historic center, complete with museums and art galleries. The city’s hallmark castle is described in countless fairytales.   

Bordeaux, France 

France’s Atlantic shore between Pointe de Grave (at the mouth of the Gironde River) and Biarritz (at the foot of the Pyrenées), is known as Côte d’Argent. Cooler than its Côte d’Azur cousin, its fine beaches are far less crowded. The river narrows near Bordeaux, center one of the world’s most celebrated wine producing regions. More than 10,000 vineyards dot the countryside providing most of the epicurean nation’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Sémillon, Savignon Blanc, and Muscadelle grapes. Visit one of the region’s legendary chateaux, such as: Margaux, Mouton-Rothschild or Haut-Brion. 

Dramatic Sailing Through the Kiel Canal 

Kiel Canal - SeaDream yachting destination

It’s just a short distance between Brunsbüttel and Kiel on a map, but the 98.7-kilometer Kiel Canal saves mariners a full day’s journey around the long Jutland Peninsula. The channel winds across Germanys’ pastoral Schleswig- Holstein Region–in places where the fields are so close, you can almost touch the cows. Friendly German residents with homes along the route wave to passing marine sailors and would clearly invite guests for fresh baked goods and tea if they would only stop for a visit.

5 Best Seaside Retreats in Italy and Malta 

July 20th, 2022 by Devin Coor

Little-known isles and off-the-beaten path enclaves  

From Tuscany to Corsica and beyond, these private destinations are not those that one simply decides to travel to. Rather, these are locales that define how one travels. Accessible to those who drop anchor off the coast, they provide otherworldly fascinations, natural preserves, and untouched beaches accented by the azure waters and sea breezes of the Mediterranean.

Discover the 5 top seaside retreats in Italy and Malta: 

Porto Ercole & Porto Santo Stefano, Tuscany 

Porto Ercole & Porto Santo Stefano, Italy
The beautiful waterfront in Tuscany

Porto Ercole (“Port Hercules”) sits pretty in the municipality of Monte Argentario, in the Province of Grosseto, Tuscany—one of two towns that form the township, along with Porto Santo Stefano located on the opposite side of this unique peninsula. Stroll their picturesque marinas with sidewalk boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. Travel to Montalcino for the tasting of fantastic Brunello in one of the most celebrated Italian wine regions. Hike to the few castellos (castles) located on top of the three hills surrounding the port, or take in a round of golf with one of the most picturesque backdrops in the Mediterranean. 

Gozo Island, Malta

Gozo Island, Malta
Gozo Island, Malta

Part of the Maltese three-island archipelago, at just 26 square miles Gozo basks in the Mediterranean off the coast of Sicily. Visit Mgarr Harbor, with its quiet marina and hilltop church.

Positano, Italy

 The celebrated writer John Steinbeck once said, “Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.” One of the most charming villages along the UNESCO-awarded Amalfi Coast in Campania, Italy, Positano is perched on the face of a hill and winds down toward the sea. Besides the incredibly romantic atmosphere, the seaside retreat offers excellent shopping, beautiful beaches, and secluded hiking trails. 

Bonifacio, Corsica

5 Top Adriatic Coastal Retreats

June 24th, 2022 by Andrea Musum

Croatia, Slovenia, and Albania boast an abundance of sheltered gems 

Lined with white stone and deep-green pine, the coastline of the Adriatic Sea is one of the most extraordinary in the Mediterranean. Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Albania, and Italy offer seafaring travelers stretches of waterways nestled with distinctive cities, alluring beaches, and commanding panoramic views. Beyond marquee destinations such as Venice, Dubrovnik, and Kotor the Adriatic offers curious travelers lesser-known slips of land that promise what the Dalmatians call fjaka, loosely translated as a laid-back mood of utter contentment. 

Discover the top 5 Adriatic coastal retreats: 

Sibenik, Croatia

Krka National Park

Along one of the most well-protected natural harbors on the Croatian coast sits the beautiful town of Sibenik. Few ships have the ability to navigate into the harbor through a channel that is, in parts, less than 500 feet wide. This perfectly appointed destination features notable ways to lose oneself: Marvel at St. James Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Stroll the old town’s narrow streets that lead to beautiful squares boasting modern shops backdropped by the stylish architecture of bygone centuries. Or, for an afternoon adventure, discover nearby Krka National Park, with its numerous waterfalls and cascades. 

Krk, Croatia

Krk, Croatia

Of the more than 1,000 islands along the Croatian coastline, dubbed “the Pearl of the Adriatic,” Krk stands out for its heady mix of walled monasteries, Romanesque churches, and tiny fishing villages. Taverns dish up local specialties such as Kvarner shrimp—the perfect indulgence after walking or cycling the abundant paths that follow the underground caverns of Biserujka Cave. 

Hvar and Vis, Croatia

Hvar, Croatia

Croatia’s best-guarded secret, Hvar wraps around a sheltered harbor defined by a paved piazza and breathtaking baroque cathedral. Stroll along the palm-lined waterfront promenade and up to the hilltop castle, then wander through cobblestone alleys lined with shabby chic seafood restaurants and boutiques displaying handmade trinkets and designer clothing. 

Rising from the glorious Adriatic, isolated Vis is visited mainly by yachters, who moor up in its small town to feast on fresh fish. The ancient Greeks settled Vis in the 4th century BC, attracted by the island’s fertile fields and sheltered bays. 

Piran, Slovenia

Piran, Slovenia

Perched on a tiny piece of land jutting into the sea, Piran may just be Slovenia’s most beautiful coastal town. Part of the Venetian Empire from the late 13th to 18th centuries, Piran is known for its vibrant main square, Venetian-style bell tower, medieval walls, and access to quiet beaches, roosted on the corner of a shallow peninsula jutting out toward the Adriatic. 

Sarande, Albania

Butrint National Park, UNESCO-awarded Roman archaeological site

A resort on the Albanian Riviera sandwiched between the Ionian Sea and sprawling olive groves, Sarande sits within a horseshoe-shaped bay, edged by beaches and a promenade. See the archaeological remains of a 5th-century synagogue, later an early Christian Basilica, where intricate floor mosaics can be spied. The 16th-century Lekuresi Castle rules the hilltop above the town, and Butrint National Park, a 500-acre UNESCO-awarded Roman archeological site, is well within reach.

7 Top Greek Island Retreats

May 12th, 2022 by Andrea Musum

Mythical islands where seclusion meets sophistication

Among the thousands of Greek islands that have graced the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas, only 250 of them are occupied. Tucked away in seaside harbors and secluded coastlines, these 7 top Greek island retreats deliver incredible food and wine, otherworldly beaches, white-washed and blue-domed architecture, and ruins of ancient civilizations. Although travelers have undoubtedly heard of—and perhaps visited—such marquee isles as Santorini and Mykonos, others are awakening to a new perspective of exploring the region. One where the nimbleness of yachting allows access to uncharted destinations, with time to dive deeper and linger longer.  

Discover the top 7 Greek Island Retreats:

Patmos

South Aegean Islands, Patmos - SeaDream destination
Patmos

Tucked away in the South Aegean Islands, Patmos was named by Forbes as “Europe’s most idyllic place to live.” Its Cave of the Apocalypse is where John of Patmos (St. John) is said to have written the Book of Revelation. A fortress-like, 11th-century monastery dedicated to the saint overlooks the whitewashed houses of the hilltop capital, Chora, itself notable for its more than two dozen ancient churches and stone pathways only accessible by foot. 

Naxos

Naxos

Nestled in the South Aegean, Naxos boasts a fertile landscape that hosts a mix of serene towns, ancient ruins, family-run tavernas featuring locally produced delicacies, and long stretches of beach. Agia Anna Beach, located on the island’s west coast, is perfect for a swim; or, for the more adventurous, explore the sea caves that line its turquoise waters. The island’s most historic site, the Portara, was constructed in 530 BC as a giant doorway to the never-completed Temple of Apollo.

Ikaria

SeaDream Destinations - Greek Island, Ikaria
Ikaria

This remote island is best known as one of the world’s five “Blue Zones,” regions where locals enjoy good health and live longer than the average person. Learn the secrets to longevity from the Ikarians’ culture and lifestyle, which they say is the result of consuming strong red wine, late-night domino games, and a relaxed lifestyle. Often recognized as the best Greek island for nature lovers, Ikaria features a stunning coastline with pristine beaches and abundant nature. There are over 200 villages scattered throughout Ikaria, giving the island its authentic character. 

Syros

SeaDream Destinations - Greek Island, Syros
Syros

The small island of Syros offers the quintessential Greek island getaway. With sparkling blue waters, Syros’s breathtaking beaches—including Kini, Vari, Azolimnos, and Yalissás—are among its most coveted options to bask in the sun. Beyond the sand and sun, Syros is part of the Cyclades, an island group in the Aegean Sea, filled with culture and history and recognized for its Aegean cuisine spotlighting local specialties. 

Milos

SeaDream Destinations - Greek Island, Milos
Milos

Perhaps providing the most diverse and dramatic coastline of all the Greek islands, sheltered, horseshoe-shaped Milos boasts more than 70 beaches and is heralded as the location where Venus de Milo was discovered. While discovering your favorite sand upon which to relax, don’t overlook Sarakiniko’s volcanic white cliffs and Papafragas’s emerald-green swimming holes and caves—shaped by the island’s unique minerals, including obsidian, barite, and sulphur, which happily bubble up in abundant hot springs. 

Crete

SeaDream Destinations - Crete
Crete

Located in the southern part of the Aegean Sea, Crete features abundant natural beauty, intricate architecture, and archaeological sites worthy of exploration. In the old port, visit Castello a Mare, a Venetian fortress, and the Palace of Knossos, one of the largest and most significant Bronze Age finds the region has to offer. Immerse yourself in the rich history and culture of its capital, Heraklion, by spending an afternoon in one of its many museums and sidewalk cafés.  

The Corinth Canal

SeaDream Destinations - Corinth Canal
SeaDream passing through the Corinth Canal

Envisioned several thousand years ago and embraced by various emperors who worked to convert the engineering dream into reality, today, the Corinth Canal connects the Gulf of Corinth in the Ionian Sea with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, arguably making the peninsula an island.

Island Hopping in the Caribbean

March 17th, 2022 by Andrea Musum

Banish the winter blues with 7 top-secret beaches and rarely explored hot spots

The best time of the year to enjoy a getaway to the Caribbean is during the months of November through April, when coastlines are the ideal temperature and island days offer long stretches of sunshine. From white-sand beaches to pristine beauty awash with otherworldly flora and fauna, each island boasts its unique dose of Caribbean charm. We’ve highlighted those must-see spots that enjoy the added benefit of being off the beaten track and only accessible via foot, ferry, or yacht. 

Canouan Island, The Grenadines 

A small, crescent-shaped island in the Caribbean archipelago nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Canouan heralds the calm waters and pink-sand beach of South Glossy Bay, with views of the southern Grenadines, and the beach at Windward Bay dotted with volcanic rocks. Although Canouan only measures five square miles across, it is bursting with 1,700 lush acres welcoming hikers and bikers of all levels and is home to a large coral reef, a resort golf course, and a wide variety of marine life, including leatherback sea turtles. The remote island destination of Punaise—imagine a sandbar in the middle of the ocean accessible by catamaran—offers swimming and snorkeling for those lucky enough to get to it. 

Marigot Beach, St. Barts

This narrow stretch of U-shaped beach in St. Barts (officially named Saint-Barthelemy and nicknamed “St. Barths” by the French) is mostly known to locals. Its waters are part of a marine sanctuary, which makes it perfect for spotting the abundant sea turtles, conches, and marine life that call this region home. While conveniently located near hotels and villas in the Pointe Milou and Grand Cul de Sac areas, there are no restaurants, bars, or shops on Marigot Beach—making it truly off the tourist path. If you dare, see St. Barths from a different perspective, via a four-wheel ATV jaunt around island peaks, for unobstructed views. 

Honeymoon Beach, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands

On the north shore of St. John sits Honeymoon Beach, tucked along the lush green hillsides of the island, shaded by large sea grape and coconut trees. Perfect for lounging, snorkeling, paddleboarding, or any number of watersports, the beach features panoramic views of the islands of Grass Cay, Mingo Cay, and Lovango Cay. A one-mile hike through the Virgin Islands National Park takes you from the quaint village of Cruz Bay to Honeymoon Beach, where you can bathe in crystal-clear turquoise waters. 

Norman Island, British Virgin Islands

A breathtaking spot on the southern tip of the British Virgin Islands archipelago, Norman Island is said to be a source of inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s pirate novel Treasure Island. You won’t find any pirates here today—only the island’s cliffside wild goats and uninhabited stretches of beach, with hidden bays and water-level caves, perfect for snorkeling and perhaps a little treasure hunting.  

Le Marin, Martinique

There are several quiet beaches worth noting off Le Marin, including Petite Anse, Plage des Salines, and Anse Dufour—each more paradisical than the next. Forever sand, palm trees, and the French flavor of Martinque, complete with its plantation homes, rum distilleries, and pottery village, make each beach ideal for snorkeling, swimming, walking, or a lazy afternoon spent taking in the island culture and cuisine. 

Little Bay, Montserrat

Montserrat’s lush, verdant green fauna has earned it the nickname, “Emerald Isle of the Caribbean.” Little Bay is the isle’s crown jewel, inviting kayakers and snorkelers to its hidden black-sand beaches, coves, and caves, where chirping indigenous bats greet visitors. Little Bay’s proximity to the Soufriere Hills volcano, botanical gardens, and natural springs of Montserrat makes it an especially engaging getaway. 

South Friar’s Bay, St. Kitts

This long, golden-sand beach along the tranquil Leeward Islands coastline is dotted with sea grape and palm trees, perfect for loungers, swimmers, and snorkelers. This slice of paradise is home to several upscale restaurants and beach bars, most notably the Carambola Beach Club. The view of Friars Bay from the top of Sir Timothy’s Hill is breathtaking—and well worth the hike.

By far the quietest secret spot of St. Barts. Two trails lead to the beach, where turquoise waters, forever white sand, and a densely green island backdrop welcome those seeking respite and relaxation. Sail the Leeward Coast, and once anchored at Colombier Beach, swim ashore. 

Jost van Dyke, British Virgin Islands

Home to our signature Caviar and Champagne Splash, Jost van Dyke’s White Bay is the epitome of a barefoot island, where palm-lined white-sand beaches greet curious travelers. We offer guests the opportunity to hike and snorkel this secret paradise or simply stroll a few meters down the beach to engage with locals at the nearby Soggy Dollar Bar. 

Îles des Saintes, Guadeloupe

Not just one, but many. Also known as Les Saintes, this small archipelago of eight incredible islands off the southern coast of Guadeloupe is home to seriously secluded beaches and coral-rich reefs brimming with marine life—best explored by small boat. Its mountainous backdrop provides the perfect opportunity to explore, hike, or bike. 

Rodney Bay, St. Lucia

Tucked away in St. Lucia’s northwest coast, this horseshoe-shaped bay is defined by its endless stretches of white-sand beaches and lagoons. We offer guests an opportunity to hike to nearby Pigeon Island, once frequented by pirates, and explore 18th-century military ruins, including Fort Rodney, which affords panoramic views of the bay. All with sufficient downtime to explore the area’s upmarket restaurants and cocktail bars. 

Shoal Bay, Anguilla

This slice of paradise in the Caribbean boasts the softest sand, clearest waters, and most private restaurants of any beach in Anguilla. Its iridescent white shore gets its distinctive sheen from tiny pieces of pure white shell. Appreciated mostly by snorkelers and divers, only those who know of this secret spot enjoy the privilege of exploring it.  

Tobago Cays, St. Vincent and the Grenadines

This marine reserve, protected by Horseshoe Reef, boasts five uninhabited islands. Only private yachts and a handful of boats anchor here for those eager to explore exceptional sand and sea, where parrotfish, trunkfish, hawksbill turtles, and black-bellied whistling ducks abound. Petit Tabac’s isolated shores are the ideal spot for a picnic lunch, and the hiking trails off Petit Rameau offer panoramic views of the Grenadines, complete with otherworldly flora and fauna, including hawksbill and leatherback sea turtles, geckos, bronze anoles, and emerald-green iguanas. 

Culebrita Island, Puerto Rican Virgin Islands

Accessible only by private boat from the main island of Culebra, this deserted isle is, quite simply, the Puerto Rico Archipelago’s crown jewel. Part of the Culebra National Wildlife Refuge, there are only six beaches on this island, each home to a distinct species of wildlife, from the green sea turtle to the brown pelican. Two shallow lagoons bordered by mangrove fringe serve as an important wetland habitat for local wildlife.

SeaDream Releases 2022 Mediterranean Voyages

December 7th, 2020 by Tatiana Reyes

SeaDream Yacht Club is launching its new 2022 Mediterranean season featuring two Black Sea voyages and an Eastern Mediterranean voyage with a return to Israel. SeaDream will also recreate in 2022 some of the Mediterranean voyages that were cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19. The announcement comes as SeaDream opens for reservations 47 new 2022 Mediterranean voyages. The newly unveiled season, kicking off April 2022 through November of the same year, is brimming with exciting destinations. The luxury twin mega-yachts will sail to exclusive hotspots like the picturesque island of Santorini, the historic city of Istanbul, and the paradise playground of St. Tropez. 


“We will be offering a number of voyages in 2022 which were canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19,” said SeaDream’s Andreas Brynestad. “We wanted to make sure our guests will be able to enjoy the trips they have been looking forward to. We have also added two Black Sea voyages, a voyage in Israel and an Eastern Mediterranean voyage. We know people are eager to travel again and look forward to a brighter future.” 
 
The newly announced voyages include two voyages in the Black Sea, one in June and another in August. The Eastern Mediterranean voyage, with a stop in the city of Haifa, is scheduled for May.  SeaDream’s Mediterranean voyages are unlike any other luxury travel experience. With an onboard lifestyle that exemplifies casual yachting, SeaDream sails to some of the region’s smallest ports and harbors, affording guests the opportunity to feel as if they are on their own private escape. 
 
2022 Mediterranean highlights include: 

Santorini, Greece

A picturesque island southeast of Greece, Santorini is a well-frequented stop while aboard SeaDream yachts. Recognized for its archaeological significance, Club Members can enjoy exploring the island and partake in some of the world-famous cuisine. 

Haifa, Israel

SeaDream returns to ebullient Haifa, where guests can be dazzled by one of the most meticulously maintained parks in the world, the terraced Bahá’í Gardens. For exceptional views of the city and the shimmering sea, ascend further up the holy mountain aboard a cable car, alighting at an ideal lookout near the Carmelite Monastery of Stella Maris.

Istanbul, Turkey

 Istanbul was selected as a European Capital of Culture for 2010. Historic areas of the city were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985. Istanbul is a transcontinental city, straddling the Bosporus, one of the world’s busiest waterways in northwestern Turkey. 

      
The new destinations will be accompanied by an expansive selection of new and exciting Yachting Land Adventures to ensure guests have the opportunity to experience the best each port has to offer with one-of-a-kind adventures. 

SeaDream’s Safety Measures

October 22nd, 2020 by Tatiana Reyes

Sailing Safely Without Sacrificing Luxury

As the first luxury line to resume sailing, SeaDream has been able to provide a safe and healthy environment without sacrificing the signature SeaDream experience our guests love. We learned many lessons after completing a successful summer season in Norway, thanks to our stringent sanitation procedures, the professionalism of our crew, and the cooperation of our guests.

As we prepare to visit Barbados this winter season, we are taking these measures a step further, strengthening our existing protocols to protect our crew, guests, and the communities we visit. 

SeaDream’s luxury superyachts were already positioned to offer a safe and healthy experience. With a small ship size, ultra-personalized service, emphasis on cleanliness, and access to more intimate, less-traveled ports, SeaDream had a reduced risk built into its operations. We have now invested in equipment, education, and methods that will help further ensure everyone’s safety. 

Our Commitment to You

SeaDream is committed to protecting your health and safety. These are some of the things we are doing to ensure safe sailing:

  • Embarkation will be staggered with time slots between Noon to 6 PM or later if you have a late flight.
  • Upon embarkation, you will be greeted by our Doctor who will take your sample and run the test using Abbott ID Now machine which will give the negative result within 15 minutes.
  • Using a Thermal Scanner, we will record your temperature for a daily temperature log. This Scanner will also be used while re-embarking the Yacht after any shoreside visits. This takes just a second.
  • While entering the Yacht, you will notice special floor mats which are there to clean and sanitize your shoes.
  • Your stateroom will be pre-sanitized using Altapure AP-4 which is an advanced ultrasonic fogger used for high-level disinfection in hospitals, burn units, and clean rooms.
  • Our hospital onboard is well stocked with all necessary medications and PPE. Each Yacht has an experienced doctor onboard at your service.
  • We will use UV lamps, in addition, to sanitize the staterooms on a daily basis.
  • Our crew members also undergo frequent health checks to ensure safety on board.
  • All our crew members are certified for the WHO’s Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) for novel coronavirus course and CoVid-19 Contact tracing course from Johns Hopkins University.
  • Our crew members will serve you and carefully place your buffet selections onto your plate as you request.
  • Onshore excursions will be limited to predesignated places in an organized fashion.

What You Can Do

We are counting on you to help us ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone on board. As we sail during these unprecedented times, we appreciate your patience, cooperation, and flexibility as we try to adapt to changing circumstances. If you would like to join us on an unforgettable trip to Barbados this winter, this is what we ask of you: 

Travel Healthy Make sure you are healthy before you travel. You should get a Covid RT-PCR test done 48-72 hrs prior to flying to Barbados. You can expect another test at the Airport on arrival.   

Wash Hands Make sure to wash your hands frequently and maintain good hygiene. We will provide alcohol-based hand sanitizer and soap.   

Social Distancing Please keep a polite distance from other guests. Our spacious yachts offer plenty of open spaces and opportunities to relax while observing social distancing.   

Work With Us We ask that you collaborate with our crew to create a safe environment on board for everyone. If the advice from health authorities changes and we need to quickly adapt our protocols, we appreciate your flexibility and understanding.

Norway season coming to an end – the road ahead

August 24th, 2020 by andreas
SeaDream 1 and SeaDream 2 together in Norway this summer.

We have been operating in Norway since June when we started sailing as one of the first luxury lines in the world. While the itineraries were put together on a short notice – and while we did encounter a few issues with last minute regulations – we have had a great summer in Norway. Most voyages were sold out very quickly.

We feel like this summer has been a success, partly because of our health protocols, but also because we were able to provide the luxury SeaDream experience that you are used to with your familiar crew and the SeaDream level of service and cuisine. We have also been very fortunate to be able to operate in a region of the world that has been blessed with very little COVID – and strict rules. Our guests and crew have collaborated and made this summer unforgettable and safe.

From an operational perspective, we have been able to practice and improve our COVID protocols. This experience is invaluable and will become even more important when we leave Norway. Our close collaboration with the Norwegian health authorities has been extremely positive.

This video shows some of the measures taken this summer as a result of Covid. Our health protocols always comply with the various requirements of the local governments and may be different from what is outlined in this video.

Of course, operating this summer has not been without challenges. Some of you may have read about a non-CLIA cruise line who did not follow the rules and that caused the government to create new laws and regulations – while we were sailing. We were actually punished for mistakes made by others, but we adapted and kept on sailing.

The experience that we perhaps learned the most from this summer was when we had a guest who disembarked and later tested positive for COVID. It turned out it was a false positive (the guest did not have COVID in the first place), but our health protocols kicked in as they should and we were able to verify that they worked the way they were designed to. We notified the government within minutes of learning about the test from the guest and had a very good experience working with the local health authorities. We had to pause for about a day to test all our guests and crew. Thankfully, everyone tested negative and we continued the sailing.

All in all, we are very happy about this summer and most thankful for the amazing crew and guests who have been adapting to quickly changing conditions. The product we have delivered has been the exceptional SeaDream experience you have become accustomed to, with a different backdrop of Norwegian mountains and fjords instead of our typical Mediterranean scenery. Operating in the Mediterranean would not have been possible, so the decision to come to Norway was a good one.

The Norwegian fjords had an amazing backdrop for outside dining this summer.

So what does the world look like ahead? The truth is that we do not know exactly. What we do know is that the health and safety of our guests and crew come before anything else. And while we have tried to perfect our COVID protocols this summer, we now feel like it is the right decision to pause the sailings scheduled to take place in the Mediterranean in September as well as the trans-Atlantic voyages. The COVID situation further south in Europe is not as good as it has been in Norway and we want to take a small time-out to make sure we are ready for the winter season. Guests who are affected by this and our travel partners are now being notified and we are issuing most refunds in a matter of days.

If there are major changes to our Caribbean season, we hope to make those decisions by the end of next month. We fully understand that it can be frustrating to be a traveller these days and thank you all for your understanding. Our Ultimate Booking Assurance should hopefully make it easier to book with us by reducing your financial risk. And once the time is right for you to travel, we look forward to seeing you onboard again. For some of you that is later this year, and for others it may take a bit longer. But even with a pause in our operations staring next month, we are here for you when the time is right.

Ultimate Booking Assurance

July 22nd, 2020 by andreas

**IMPORTANT NOTE: This policy was updated and replaced with our SeaDream with Confidence program. Please visit the new page by clicking here.**

Today we are announcing our new program to allow our guests to book without being concerned about travel restrictions. We think it is wrong that our guests should take the risk and we are now taking that obstacle away:

  • For all new bookings only made after July 22, 2020, on voyages that sail prior to June 30, 2021 that are affected by travel restrictions due to Covid-19, we will issue you a full cash refund – or you can get 120% of the amount credited towards a future voyage. You decide.
  • But to take it further: if there are no travel restrictions and you don’t want to travel anyway, you can do so and we will move your funds to a future date.

And best of all, you do not have to decide until the day of departure.

The fine print? It is not valid for charters, it is for new bookings only, we don’t refund hotel/air charges, and we may withdraw this guarantee at any point in time (for future bookings).

How is it really going at SeaDream?

We have been busy the past few months, no question about it. Our crew has been studying (taking World Health Organization courses), preparing the yachts, and we have been sailing with both yachts – fully sold out – for about a month now. We were amongst the first to start operating again, following all government requirements – and more – and the feedback has been really good. If you want to see some pictures from the past few weeks of our ships you can head over to our photo library:

We are sailing again!

July 7th, 2020 by andreas

After a few months of waiting, we now have guests onboard again. The demand from guests to come back has been overwhelming (we are sold out for most of the season already!).

We are ready to welcome. you back onboard!

We have 7 and 12 days sailings starting in Oslo, Bergen or Tromsø. Here are some recent photos taken by guests and crew:

On the first voyages we have mostly people from Norway sailing. As the season progresses and more countries are opening up for travel, we expect to see more nationalities joining.
