We are pleased to honor our guests’ holistic wellness lifestyles with the only raw and living food menu at sea and the only Thai-certified spa at sea, the SeaDream Spa.  


Embrace the spirit of travel by planning your next journey to the secluded islands and playful yachting harbors of the Caribbean.

  • Deshaies, Guadeloupe 

  • St. Barths, French West Indies 

  • Charlestown, Nevis 

  • Cruz Bay, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands 

  • Falmouth Bay, Antigua 

  • Prickly Pear, British Virgin Islands

Deshaies, Guadeloupe

Deshaies, GuadeloupeThis charming fishing village nestled in verdant hills is the most tranquil spot on Guadeloupe, itself an underexplored island crouched in the French Caribbean archipelago. Discover a paradise steep in its past and blessed with incredible diversity, including a rich seabed and rare natural species. Stroll otherworldly botanical gardens, lounge the day away on the golden sands of one of its six secluded beaches (may we recommend La Perle, Fort-Royal, or Anse Riflet?), and enjoy its authentically French seafood restaurants, which you may recognize as the backdrop of the British-French comedy crime drama Death in Paradise. We drop anchor right outside the village and tender ashore. 

St. Barths, French West Indies 

St. Barths, French West Indies St. Barths’ turquoise waters are the perfect playground to enjoy SeaDream’s signature Watersports Marina Platform—equipped with a new water slide and all the watersports equipment required for a proper yachting vacation. There’s plenty of time to explore St. Barths’ incredible beaches, outdoor cafés, and upscale boutiques, only steps away from the pier, accessed by your private tender. May we suggest Colombier Beach, by far the quietest secret spot of St. Barths? Two trails lead to the beach, where turquoise waters, forever white sand, and a densely green island backdrop welcome those seeking respite and relaxation. Many of our itineraries feature overnight stays in this marquee yachting playground, inviting our guests to explore the French-infused island’s flavorful nighttime ambiance. 

Charlestown, Nevis

Charlestown, NevisNevis is one of our favorite islands, and we encourage you to explore Nevis beyond the small town to make the most of your visit. We offer several excellent and varied options for you to do so and still leave you with plenty of time on your own for the beach. Less commercial and laidback than its neighbor St. Kitts, Nevis, at first glimpse, offers a stunning approach with dramatic views of the potentially active volcanic Nevis Peak (3,232 feet).  

Cruz Bay, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands 

Cruz Bay, St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands 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. This little-known beach is 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.  

Champagne and Caviar Splash™And on every SeaDream Caribbean itinerary, our signature Champagne and Caviar Splash™ bursts on secluded beaches nestled within breathtaking bays and paradisical coastlines. Enjoy champagne & caviar served in the surf, followed by an elegant beach barbecue. 

Falmouth Bay, Antigua

Falmouth Bay, AntiguaThis horseshoe-shaped bay and natural harbor on the far southern cost of Antigua is a peaceful paradise to behold. The harbor is lined with superyachts, boutiques, and restaurants, the historic Nelson’s Dockyard and idyllic Pigeon Beach, just a stroll away.   

Prickly Pear, British Virgin Islands 

Prickly Pear, British Virgin Islands Located on the north side of North Sound, opposite Virgin Gorda, this tiny uninhabited island has no permanent residents, only a beach bar and recreational water sports facility. With all the cares in the world relieved, Prickly Pear is all about letting go. Three reefs lying just offshore provide some of the best snorkeling the Caribbean has to offer. Pristine white sand calls out for a nap under the sun. A walk down the beach to the end of the island reveals the island’s rich bird life and aquatic world, boasting some of the most colorful coral and fish you can imagine.  

Saba, Northern Leeward Islands 

Saba, Northern Leeward Islands This Caribbean paradise of Saba is a special municipality of the Netherlands. It is also the location of the tallest, or highest point of the Netherlands, even though it is a few thousand miles away from its European homeland. With an estimated local population of just over 2,000, Saba is known for its many diving, hiking, and climbing opportunities.
