So, whether you set sail for the Caribbean, Mediterranean, or make the journey across the Atlantic, view our voyages today and book now for the vacation of a lifetime.
Casually Elegant – Always Luxurious
With a crew always ready to deliver that pampered feel, it’s no wonder they have been recognized time and time again for their extraordinary service. Stretching back to our founding in 2001, SeaDream has received numerous awards and commendations. In 2010, our crew was recognized in the Kreuzfahrt Guide of Germany as “Number One for Service,” which was the second year in a row receiving that distinction. In 2016, they again recognized SeaDream as “Best Cruise Ship of the Year for Service,” which speaks volumes about our crew performance.
Of course, SeaDream’s crew has been recognized over and over between these years. In 2011, Cruise Critic Cruisers’ Choice Awards ranked our SeaDream I yacht “Number One for Service” in the Small Ship category. In 2012, Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards placed SeaDream in an exclusive list for “World’s Best Service.” 2013, we were recognized by various media organizations, including the Chicago Tribute, who placed us among the “Ten Best Luxury Cruise Ships Afloat.”
Beyond these service-focused achievements, SeaDream has also received various awards that speak to the overall quality experience our guests enjoy. Bon Voyage Awards recognized SeaDream in 2014 as “Best for Couples.” In 2015, ForbesLife recognized us as “Best Small Luxury Cruise Ship of 2015.” In 2016, Dream Luxury Cruises Vencedor Awards: named us “World’s Best Small Cruise Ship.” Most recently, we were recognized by Berlitz Cruising & Cruise Ships as being in the top 5 “Best for Food” category and placing #1 and #2 in “Best Boutique Ship Categories.” For a complete listing of recognitions, you can check out our awards page.
Size Matters – Yachting on a Boutique Ship
While our crew is a big part of why we receive all these accolades, the size of our yachts makes a difference too. With 95 crew members and only 112 guests, our mega-yachts SeaDream I and SeaDream II both fall into the “boutique ship” category. Measuring much smaller than your average luxury cruise ship, we can travel through some of the most unique waterways on the ocean and gives us an advantage that the larger ships do not have. As you voyage through the sea and along picturesque coastlines, you’ll experience sights that you wouldn’t find on any other luxury cruise line.
More importantly, our guests are delighted to call at some of the most intimate ports in the world. Whereas large ships could never stop at these smaller ports, our mega-yachts are well-equipped to handle it. As you would expect, these ports offer that boutique feel and provide a more personalized experience upon arrival. No crowds, no waiting.
When you are ready to experience the difference of voyaging on a boutique ship, make sure to view voyages and book now. As a new guest aboard SeaDream, we’ll ensure all your needs and expectations of an upscale cruise line are not just met, but exceeded.

For many guests, the Top of Yacht Bar is a very popular spot. This is the prime place to enjoy a fabulous drink and breathtaking views, so make sure to stop by regularly.

Plenty of Included Entertainment
When you board your SeaDream yacht, you’ll have the opportunity to settle into your well-appointed stateroom. After you have settled in, it’s time to explore the yacht and locate the popular areas of the ship. For many guests, it’s the open teak decks and fresh sea air that makes traveling with SeaDream so special.
As you would expect while at sea on a luxury cruise line, you can enjoy a few laps in the pool and dry-off on the oversized pool deck, providing you a spot to soak up the sun or socialize with fellow guests. The freshwater whirlpool/hot tub also serves as a welcome respite for achy joints from a long day of sightseeing. After dinner, try your luck in the casino and enjoy the nearby musical entertainment from the Piano Bar.
If you are feeling really competitive, convince fellow golf enthusiast guests to join you in an impromptu tournament in the Golf Simulator. Alternatively, solo golfers are welcome to try out one of the 30 different golf courses available for fun or to work on their game.
Yachting with SeaDream is a social event, but sometimes you might prefer the solitude of your own stateroom. Grab a best seller from the library, or check-out a dvd movie from the concierge. Your stateroom is well equipped with a flat-screen television and a DVD player, so plenty of opportunities to catch-up on some award-winning films. If nothing else, these well-appointed suites are the perfect place to rest your head for a mid-afternoon nap or to retire for the night. This is your vacation, so be sure to relax and unwind after exciting and adventure-filled days at sea and in port.
Find Time to Relax
After enjoying the all the inclusive options available to you on your vacation, you might want to find some quality time to relax on your own. While your stateroom is always a comfortable retreat, make sure not to rule-out some on-deck and open air spots too. Our Signature Balinese Dream Beds provide the perfect spot to watch the world go by during the day, or to sleep under the stars at night. With the Top of the Yacht Bar so close, your favorite cocktail is not far away, and at night, we’ll even dress your Dream Bed with luxury linens for an extra-special touch. When you desire the ultimate in pampering, visit our unique Thai-Certified Spa.

Both yachts sail with a team of massage therapists, a hairdresser, and a Spa Manager, effectively ensuring all your needs are met.

Yacht Club Stateroom
Meet Your Captains
At SeaDream, we have four dedicated Captains who operate SeaDream I and SeaDream II. Each of these expert mariners brings his own unique experiences to the table and helps provide for a relaxing and luxurious voyage across the ocean.
A natural-born sailor, Captain Bjarne Smorawski is one of our most trusted navigators. Leaving his birth place in Esbjerg, Denmark as a young boy, he moved to Norway and spent most of his time outside of school at or near the sea. At the age of 16, he spent 3 months aboard a “school ship” and finishing his education would spend the next 10 years working on various cargo and reefer vessels. After this, he attended the Maritime School in Fredrikstad, Norway to advance his career and continued on his journey to become a Captain. Today, he serves as Master aboard our SeaDream I mega-yacht, demonstrating his fine ability as a seafarer.
Another man born into the seafaring life, Captain Holmsteinsson worked his early years aboard fishing vessels and trawlers before attending and graduating from the Reykjavík Maritime Academy. After graduation, he spent the next 20 years working on various trawlers until earning the rank of Captain. When SeaDream first started in 2001, he quickly joined on as a First Officer and since 2015 is now serving as Captain.
Born on the west coast of Norway, Captain Remi Eriksen recalls seeing large cruise ships when he was a young boy and the impression they made on him. Wanting to serve aboard one of these ships, he grew up and attended the Maritime University of Kristiansund. Only two weeks after graduation, he landed a job on Norwegian Cruise Line and worked his way up to the rank of Staff Captain. Looking for a new adventure, he served the next few years aboard various cruise lines and then moved on to private yachts. In 2013, he found a home here at SeaDream and has brought with him plenty of stories about his travels over the years.
Captain Torbjørn Lund was born in a Norwegian coastal town and started his seafaring days at the ripe age of 17. After working for years on a crude oil tanker, he received his first job with passengers and cargo in 1991. At that time, he realized that it was much more enjoyable meeting those passengers than just dealing with cargo. With this realization, he was able to work on a variety of cruise ships. Today, he serves as a Captain aboard your SeaDream yacht and is happy to tell you all about the interesting places he has travelled.
