Since its founding in September 2001 SeaDream Yacht Club has won a variety of awards and received accolades from authoritative guidebooks and other publications. These are listed and described below:

1. Berlitz Ocean Cruising and Cruise Ships 2003---SeaDream scored highest of all Five-Star cruise vessels rated by this publication. Only one vessel, Europa, a German language passenger ship operated largely for the German market, scored marginally higher and was rated Five-Stars Plus. Berlitz utilizes an elaborate rating system that scores passenger ships on the vessel itself, accommodations, service, food, entertainment and overall sailing experience. However, SeaDream I and II, whose scores were identical, were not rated in the entertainment category since with SeaDream Yacht Club emphasis is not put on elaborate entertainment. Hence it is reasonable to state that if SeaDream I and II had been rated even modestly for entertainment, it may well have outscored Europa.

2. Berlitz Ocean Cruising and Cruise Ships 2004---SeaDream repeated its amazing ratings in the 2004 edition of this authoritative book. Author Douglas Ward even created a new category for this edition---Utterly Exclusive--- and only three ships were included: SeaDream I, SeaDream II and the Hapag-Lloyd German vessel, Europa. By Ward�s definition Utterly Exclusive is literally in a special category by itself above Luxury.

3. Berlitz Ocean Cruising and Cruise Ships 2005---Once again SeaDream has repeated its over-the-top ratings in the 2005 edition of this authoritative book. SeaDream I and II were rated higher than any other Five Star vessels. And again, SeaDream I and II were said to be �Utterly Exclusive.�
