Program Overview


Ports

  • 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.

  • Portovenere (Cinque Terre)

    One word – Incredible! Cinque Terre, Portovenere and the three Island of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto have been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997. They have been selected for being distinguished examples of the ways in which man has been able to modify and transform the environment without altering the beauty of the original natural landscape. Most of our valued guests will participate in the ever popular “Cinque Terre: Don’t go Home Without It” Land Adventure. Others may enjoy the guided village walk or go hiking on several trails leading down the coast. Most guests will make a purchase of the amazing local pesto and we are fairly certain our Executive Chef will do the same. Be prepared for an incredible dinner al fresco this evening!

  • Sanremo

    Called Italy's mirror image of nearby Monte Carlo, Sanremo is made up of the same glitz and glam lifestyle as her neighbor. If you’re a gambler you’ll definitely want to plan on rolling the dice during your visit – this city has the oldest casino in all of Italy, the Casino Municipale.

  • Antibes

    Historians indicate that Antibes was the first town founded by the Greeks on the Riviera coast. For a very long time, Antibes was the only town between Marseille and Italy. The temples, monuments and an immense 3500 seat amphitheater bear testimony to its ancient origins. Much of the protecting walls have remained intact including Fort Carre, which is one of the most beautiful examples of military architecture in Europe. Today the port is taken over by an incredible array of mega yachts. The historic town center is full of pretty squares and narrow streets, ideal for wandering and people-watching. Make sure you check out the cathedral and the old ramparts. Nearby Cap d'Antibes, there is a small peninsula of paradise, you can visit it by taking the sign-posted path following the coastline. The famous "Eden Roc" hotel is at the point of the "Cap". Ask on of the officers to lead a crew shoreside casual hike – you will not be disappointed. If that isn’t appealing, we are certain one of the organized land adventure will be.

  • Saint-Tropez

    Saint-Tropez located on the French Riviera quite simply may be the most famous resort town in Europe. It is a playground for the fashion models, athletes, movie stars, entertainers and other extremely wealthy summertime guests. There’s much to offer in this resort town, shopping, nightlife (Byblos hotel’s Les Caves du Roy nightclub) exceptional beach clubs such as Le Club 55 and Nikki Beach at Pampelonne. Nearby you can explore some of the hill towns and visit the award winning rose wineries. You can also visit neighboring Grimaud and Port Grimaud or just a little further out golf at a few highly rated courses. SeaDream anchors just off the break wall and tenders directly to the pier downtown.

  • Le Lavandou

    Le Lavandou is a commune in the Var department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France. It derives its name either from the flower lavender that is prevalent in the area, or more prosaicly from the local form of the Occitan name for lavoir, lavandor (for lavador, a public place for washing clothes). Le Lavandou is a seaside resort town, with all the trappings, such as discos and crowds, but also fine sandy beaches right alongside. It was a lovely seaside fishing port, built in 1880, destroyed in 1944, and rebuilt after the war. Today it has an active yacht marina, with the nearest section reserved for the fishing boats still plying their trade. A fish market is held there every morning from 8h-11h, unless the weather prevents the boats from going out.

  • Cassis

    Cassis is a small port situated east of Marseille in the administrative department of the Bouches-du-Rhone in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur region in southern France. It is a very popular tourist destination and is famous for its steep cliffs (falaises) and the sheltered limestone inlets called calanques. The wines of Cassis are white and rose, and not to be confused with creme de cassis, a specialty of Burgundy which takes its name from blackcurrants (cassis), not the village here. SeaDream anchors in the bay and offer a land adventure to the impressive Aix en Provence. Other options are taking a local boat to the calanques, hiking along the coast, visiting some of the local vineyards, water sports, mountain biking or simply relaxing in a Balinese bed on the yacht.

  • Sanary-sur-Mer

    Sanary-sur-Mer is a Provencal village located in the Var department in the Provences-Alpes-Côtes d'Azur region of France. Most visitors fall in love with the town shortly after they arrive. The harbor has several traditional wooden boats called “pointus” that are used by the fisherman daily. They sell their catch each morning on the harbor front. Market day is always a special treat so plan accordingly. The nearby village of Bandol has some of the oldest vineyards in France. It’s an easy bike ride down the coast from Sanary-sur-Mer. Other options include a land adventure to the nearby town of Castellet a typical hilltop village where you can explore and have a nice wine tasting. Golf at De La Fregate as well as water sports are also on option here.

  • Nice

    Nice is the fifth most populous city in France and the second largest on the Mediterranean coast. The city's famous seaside promenade, the Promenade des Anglais ('the Walkway of the English') owes its name to the earliest settlers to this seaside resort.

At the start of this Land Adventure, your guide will meet you on the pier, where you will start your visit by the historic part of the city which is a maze of small, flower-bedecked streets with roman and medieval sections. Its 16th century ramparts overlook the Mediterranean Sea and still protect the heart of the Old Town. Your next stop will be just nearby the market, in a 9th century vaulted cellar, with a roman well. This shop sells olive oil and other local specialties. There you will taste some regional delicacies such as the tapenade accompanied by a glass of the famous “absinthe” (wormwood-based alcoholic beverage), the favorite beverage of many French artists in the 19th century. Then you will enjoy some time for independent exploration before your return to you SeaDream yacht.

  • Sanremo - Medieval Villages & Wine tasting

    Description

    Dolceacqua is one of the most beautiful medieval villages in Italy. Located in the valley of Nervia, its oldest part is dominated by the Dorias' Castel, at the foot of Mount Rebuffao. The newest part of the village is located on the opposite side of the river, called Borgo. In the Dolceacqua you can feel like you are in fairytale. The inhabitants of this tiny village located between the sea and the mountains might not be many, but they are very friendly. The Medieval atmosphere is powered by Dorias' Castle that dates back to the 12th century when it was just a tower. During the 16th century, the local Lord Stefano Doria added the Rammed Bastion and two square towers. Nowadays the castle appears to be divided into two parts. You will reach the village of Dolceacqua by bus and then will follow your knowledgeable guide and discover this Ligurian gem. The guide makes Dolceacqua's history and culture come alive. Conclude with a tasting of wine and local products at a nearby winery. Enjoy local appetizers to match the wine offerings before it will be time to return to your SeaDream yacht.

    Notes

    The visit at Dolceacqua is entirely on foot as it is a pedestrian area. The tour is not suggested to guests with walking difficulties due to steep inclines at both villages.

Testimonials

Exceptional food. Interesting menu options. A delight every lunch & dinner. Mrs Lydia Watson PinneyMidland, Michigan
I hate Commercial Cruises. So I reluctantly signed up for a SeaDream, and after a week on the boat, I could not think of one thing that was not done to perfection. The food was great, the staff was spectacular, and having only 50 couples made this a private yacht cruise. I have signed up for my second cruise, and probably will only Yacht with SeaDream in my future. Pat McGroganFernandina Beach, Florida
