The year 2003 has begun well for SeaDream Yacht Club. In addition to the review, the small yachting company was rated tops in the Berlitz 2003 Ocean Cruising and Cruise Ships, Five-Star Club. The only vessel rated higher than the SeaDream twins was Europa, operated for the German market. Its score included a rating for Entertainment, while that of SeaDream I and II did not since yacht class vessels do not stress elaborate entertainment, but choose to emphasize a more active, free-form, seagoing holiday. Nevertheless, the SeaDream twins outscored even Europa in the categories of Food, Service and overall Cruise Experience.

SeaDream Yacht Club is the yachting venture by Norwegian entrepreneur Atle Brynestad who founded Seabourn Cruise Line, and Larry Pimentel who was president of Seabourn under Brynestad and later president and CEO of the merged Cunard and Seabourn. Pimentel is Chairman and CEO of the Coconut Grove, Florida-headquartered SeaDream Yacht Club and a co-owner. The company operates SeaDream I and SeaDream II, twin, ultra luxury, mega yachts that operate on seven-day sailings in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean. The yachts are not only ideal for discerning travelers seeking an unstructured and casual holiday experience but also for small meetings and incentive groups or individual private family gatherings. They are available for full charter.

SeaDream I and II share the top Five-Star Club award in the Berlitz Ocean Cruising and Cruise Ships 2003 guidebook.
