Exploring World-Renowned Destinations
If you are traveling aboard one of our luxury cruise ships, you expect to visit destinations that will really stand out as exceptional. Yachting to some of the most intimate ports at sea, we choose these less-traveled routes because it allows our guests to enjoy a more casually elegant voyage. Depending on the time of the year and available itineraries, we separate our voyages into three main categories: Caribbean, Mediterranean, or Transatlantic. Caribbean journeys are offered between the months of November through April. If you prefer the Mediterranean, you’ll want to check on available itineraries from May through October. Finally, select Transatlantic voyages are available to travel between these two regions.
The Magnificent Caribbean Voyages
Known for its pirate history, tasty rum, and picturesque beaches, the Caribbean offers many tropical paradises for guests to enjoy. Traveling to the US and British Virgin Islands as well as many other iconic destinations, we look to ensure your time spent in these turquoise waters is memorable. Some of our premier destinations include:
White Bay, Jost Van Dyke
Home to the infamous “Painkiller” drink, White Bay, Jost van Dyke is definitely a port of interest for Caribbean yachtsmen. Here you’ll have the chance to take a snorkeling tour of the local national park as well as the chance to just lay-out on a white sandy beach. A short hike will also bring you to the famous Foxy’s Bar at Great Harbour – a must see destination. Jost van Dyke is also home to one of our popular Champagne and Caviar Splash™ beaches.
North Sound, Virgin Gorda
When you stop off at North Sound, Virgin Gorda, you’ll have the chance to relax on the beach. But, this stop also has one Yachting Land Adventure you won’t want to miss – The Baths. This famous natural rock formation includes boulders and caves and provides one of those rare natural marvels you won’t find elsewhere.
Gustavia, St. Barts
One of the most prized destinations in the Caribbean, Gustavia, St. Barts is an idyllic destination that offers its fair share of activities. Whether you ride around the city on a bike with some of our crew members or you participate in a Yachting Land Adventure, there’s plenty to see here. Explore the sea with snorkeling gear or explore the sky by helicopter. Whatever you choose, make sure to get out and explore. Many SeaDream Caribbean itineraries offer overnight stays in port here, so you can really experience the island’s nightlife.
The Historic Mediterranean Waters
Featuring some of the most iconic seaside destinations, those who voyage to this region get a look at the rich history and many wonders it has to offer. While many luxury cruise ships travel these waters, none can offer the unique and intimate ports of call you’ll find with SeaDream. Among those destinations, you’ll want to explore:
Amalfi Coast, Italy
With an UNESCO awarded coast, it makes sense that Amalfi is one of those destinations many guests remember. This area not only provides picturesque natural beauty, but it also delivers gorgeous medieval architecture. Whether you explore this area on your own or with one of our Yachting Land Adventures, you’ll find there is no shortage of activities.
One of the most beautiful stops in the region, Mykonos, Greece is another must-see port. Blending a cosmopolitan lifestyle with a unique and vibrant nightlife, this city provides the ideal combination of history and modern living. Visitors can participate in some of the guest-favorite Yachting Land Adventures, including Horse Riding at the Beach, and our Tastes and Vineyards Adventure.
Transverse the Atlantic on a Transatlantic Voyage
For those who prefer to spend more time aboard their yacht, a Transatlantic voyage is the perfect vacation to plan. Traveling across the Atlantic Ocean, these voyages take just shy of two weeks on average and visit fewer ports. The trade-off for many guests is the rare opportunity to swim in the open Atlantic, which is often afforded our transatlantic guests. Of course, more time at sea means more time to enjoy the Dream Cruising and award-winning SeaDream service.
A popular departure and embarkation point, Lisbon is not just the capital city of Portugal. It is also one of the most beautiful destinations in the area. Featuring two UNESCO World Heritage List sites: the Belem Tower and Jeronimos Monastery, you won’t want to miss your chance to explore this city.
The birth place of famous painter Pablo Picasso and actor Antonio Banderas, Malaga Spain is a cultural bastion of Europe. Proud to offer a variety of Yachting Land Adventures, those who visit this stop along the way can get a guided tour of the local culture and history. Alternatively, those who visit is as an embarkation port may want to spend some time here checking out the city even more. There is plenty to see.
Home to multiple UNESCO Heritage Sites, Bridgetown, Barbados is one of the main departure hubs for Caribbean voyages. During a transatlantic journey, you may start or end your voyage here. Whatever the case, make sure to spend some time on the picturesque beaches and perhaps even more time exploring the charms of the city.

Once you’re done there, consider heading over to the pool for a relaxing afternoon. Alternatively, you might just catch some rays on the top of the yacht in one of the Sun Beds.

Whatever time of day, many crew members consider this the social heart of the yacht.
Since our luxury cruise ships make port at some of the most intimate and private destinations around the world, our guests have access to many of the best shore-side adventures. Many just enjoy visiting the picturesque beaches, where you can lounge in the white sand and appreciate the ocean breeze.

Yachting Land Adventures

Meet the Captains
SeaDream is proud to have four Captains for our luxury cruise ships. Each Captain offers his own unique seafaring experience at sea to provide sailing expertise and an array of great stories to go along with them. Regardless of where your voyage takes you, you’ll be in good hands under the guidance of these fine leaders.
Born with a love for the sea, Captain Smorawski was born in Denmark but moved to Norway with his family as a small boy. At the ripe age of 16, he embarked on his journey as a professional seafarer, spending three months on what he dubs a “school ship.” After learning the ropes of the seafaring life, he spent ten years exploring the world on various reefer vessels and cargo ships. Recognizing his dream to accomplish even more, he proceeded to attend the Maritime School in Fredrikstad. Today, he is master of one of the world’s finest mega-yacht, SeaDream I.
From a young age, Captain Eriksen remembers watching the many cruise ships leaving from his home in Marbella in Spain. Due to this influence, he dreamed of becoming an officer aboard these ships. Following this dream, he graduated from the Maritime University of Kristiansund and just two weeks later landed a job with Norwegian Cruise Lines. After working his way up to First Officer and then Staff Captain, Eriksen knew it was time for change. He spent time on a few other cruise ships before transitioning to private yachts. In August 2013, he joined the SeaDream family and has served with us since.
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.
Captain Lund knew early on that he was destined for the seafaring life. He made his first spending money by helping aboard his uncle’s fishing boat and when he reached the age of 17 he set out on a huge oil tanker as a deck boy. He continued to work on cargo vessels until 1991, when he first started working with passengers and cargo. Recognizing that he enjoyed the passengers more than the cargo, he began a wonderful career of service on passenger vessels, including various cruise lines. Today, we are honored to have Captain Lund and his many great stories on our SeaDream yachts.
