Ports

  • Bordeaux

    Bordeaux is incontestably one of the world’s most venerable wine capitals, and a visit to this oenophile’s paradise will not disappoint lovers of the nectar of the gods. This lovely city, however, also boasts myriad architectural treasures in its UNESCO World Heritage site historic center, including the sublime Palace de la Bourse, an 18th-century marvel that is spellbindingly echoed in the adjacent reflecting pool. As you stroll the promenade on the left bank of the Garonne River, you’ll pass majestic neoclassical buildings and splendidly manicured gardens that rival Paris itself. The astonishingly preserved 15th-century Grosse Cloche and Porte Cailhau city gates are a testament to the city’s medieval sumptuousness, but for proof that Bordeaux isn’t in thrall to the past, visit La Cité du Vin, a boldly futuristic structure devoted to the history of wine throughout the ages. Of course, for a first-hand look at wine production you must venture out to the surrounding countryside, where fabulous chateaux oversee flourishing vineyards responsible for some of the world’s premier vintages. A visit to any quaint wine village is sure to enchant, but Saint-Émilion and its unspoiled feudal ambiance might just become the highlight of your trip.

  • At Sea

  • Vigo (Bayona), Galicia

    The port of Vigo, with its strategic location in the northwest corner of Spain was constantly fought over during the many periods of war between Spain, Britain and France. Nearby Baiona is a town with a medieval historical center situated by the outlet of the Vigo Bay. On March 1, 1493, the Pinta, one of the ships from Columbus' voyage to discover the New World returned to Europe and arrived in Baiona, making the town's port the first to receive news of the discovery of America. A replica of the ship can be visited, and the event is celebrated each and every year. SeaDreamers have two land adventure options that include the sights and tastes of Bayona as well as the Unesco Awarded town of Santiago de Compostela.

  • Cadiz

    Cadiz is believed to have been founded some 3,000 years ago which could make this port city the oldest in Western Europe. The city has so much to offer its visitors with its commercial importance, stunning beaches, regional cuisine and the Unesco Awarded Donana National Park. There’s several significant landmarks in Cadiz, some of which include the yellow-domed Cathedral, the ancient roman theatre, an 18th-century watch tower, the city walls and so much more. SeaDream docks in the heart of this Andalusian town.

  • Ibiza, Balearic Islands

    Ibiza town is the largest city on this 3rd largest Balearic Spanish Island. It lies 79 kilometers (49 miles) off the coast of Valencia, in eastern Spain. Ibiza has become famous for its incredible nightlife and the electronic music that originated on the island. This UNESCO awarded city has some great land adventure options including resort golf, wine tasting, exploring the Dalt Villa and mountain biking to name a few. We try to stay late in the evening so guests can also get a taste of the nightlife.

  • Porto Vecchio, Corsica

    Porto-Vecchio, Corsica is a small port of call in the Corse-du-Sud department of France. The cities popularity increased dramatically since hosting the start of the first stage of the 2013 Tour de France. Just outside of town they have some remarkable beaches. There’s also options for guests to visit Bonifacio as well as the signature golf course Sperone. SeaDream anchors of the harbor and tenders directly to the town center. Water sports will be offered in the morning and afternoon from the marina platform (weather permitting).

  • Civitavecchia (Rome)

    Civitavecchia is a major port located in Rome, primarily utilized for maritime transportation of goods, as well as a fishing port. The commune’s name means “ancient town” and is one of the “Motorways of the Sea” in the Mediterranean, functioning as one of the main links between the mainland of Italy and Sardinia. The ancient name of the port was “Centumcellae,” first mentioned in a letter written by Pliny the Younger in 107 A.D., although scholars debate on whether the name was about the number of rooms of the Trajan Villa, or the number of natural creeks on the coast. Civitavecchia is a part of the Lazio Territory, an area which was confirmed to have social groups since pre-historic times, and the modern town was built over a pre-existing settlement of the Etruscan people in 107-108 B.C.E. (who debated to have founded Rome). In the beginning of the 2nd century, the harbor and town of Centumcellae were simultaneously developed by Emperor Trajan in the territory of Aquae Tauri. As the town became more popular for ships traveling westbound, the Thermal Baths were constructed on the hill of Ficoncella. Centumcellae flourished in the Imperial Age, and by 538 A.D., it had become a Byzantine stronghold. In 728 A.D., it became a member of the Papal States. The Saracens raided Centumcellae many times in the 9th century, prompting Pope Leo VII to have a newer and more secure settlement built by 854. The town, then known as Civita Vetula, was under the rule of several lords, and the Popes temporarily lost control during the French Rule in 1798-1815. In 1870 it entered the Kingdom of Italy. Civitavecchia was severely damaged during WWII, destroying many of the ancient monuments including Forte Michelangelo, which would be rebuilt in the 1950’s. Popular points of interest include the Forte Michelangelo, Terme Taurine, and Cattedrale di San Francesco. There is a wealth of Roman and Vatican architecture and tourists are encouraged to visit many of the museums and take the cultural tours available in this important sea port.
