Ports

  • Valletta

    Valletta, The Fortress City, is Malta's capital city: a living, working city, the administrative and commercial heart of the Islands. Valletta is named after its founder, the respected Grand Master of the Order of St. John, Jean Parisot de la Valette. The magnificent fortress city grew on the arid rock of Mount Sceberras peninsula, which rises steeply from two deep harbours, Marsamxett and Grand Harbour. Ottoman forces numbering 40,000 laid siege to the island from May to September 1565, without success. The heavily outnumbered army of 700 knights and around 8000 Maltese regular troops took refuge in the fortified town on the Grand Harbour. Started in 1566, the city of Valletta was completed, with its impressive bastions, forts, and cathedral, in the astonishingly short time of 15 years. The city is busy by day, yet retains a timeless atmosphere. The grid of narrow streets boasts some of Europe's finest art works, churches and palaces. Walking around Valletta you'll come across an intriguing historical site around every corner: votive statues, niches, fountains and coats of arms high up on parapets. Narrow side streets are full of tiny quaint shops and cafes, while Valletta's main streets are lined with larger international branded shops for fashion, music, jewelry and much more.

  • Xlendi Bay, Gozo Island

    The famous fishing village of Xlendi has now become a major resort town. The assemblage of high-end hotels is low-rise and perfectly framed to get unobstructed views of the beautiful bay. Xlendi has long been a tourist favorite for a beach fling, exciting snorkeling adventures, and diving experiences.

  • Trapani, Sicily

    Trapani is a city on the west coast of Sicily in Italy and was founded by Elymians. SeaDream docks in the center of town and allows incredible access for strolling into town or meeting the motor coach for the scheduled land adventures. The city is still important for fishing and is the main gateway to the nearby Egadi Islands. This Carthaginian and later Roman city is an exciting gateway to Sicily's historic, gastronomic and natural attractions, offering access to beautiful medieval towns as well as Greek archaeological sites. We highly recommend that you participate on one of our interesting land adventures and not miss the amazing sites located about 30 minutes by road from Trapani including Erici, Segesta, Marsala and more.

  • Lipari, Sicily

    Lipar, Sicily is the largest of the Aeolian group of seven islands in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the northern coast of Sicily. Everyone should check out the fortified castello as well as the Aeolian Archaeological Museum. The island was for centuries the world centre for pumice production, and although the mining has left scars on the hillsides, it has also deposited the finest white pumice dust on the sea bed. The water off Spiaggia Bianca (White Beach) is as clear and as turquoise as in the Bahamas and Caribbean. There’s also black sand beaches on the island as well. SeaDream has arranged a Pizza Demonstration as a Land Adventure option as well as the Island Overview. Water sports in the crystal waters is also a great activity option.

  • Capri

    Capri may very well be the most popular island on the planet. It is a beautiful Italian island in the Tyrrhenian Sea just off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Bay of Naples. Capri town is the island’s main population center. The island has two harbors, Marina Piccola and Marina Grande (the main port of the island). The separate village of Anacapri is located high on the hills to the west. From there, visitors can continue up to the highest point Mt. Solero. Besides some simply amazing shopping boutiques, the island has so much to offer including the famous Grotta Azzurra, Villa Jovis, Giardini di Augusto, Certosa di San Giacomo, Villa San Michele di Axel Munthe and the uniquely shaped Faraglioni rocks. SeaDream has put together most of the sights into one adventure called “Discovering the Island of Love” Kindly check the Land Adventures tab for more information. There’s also some great hikes available on the island, check with the activities team on board for details.

  • Amalfi

    Amalfi is a picturesque town in the province of Salerno, in the Campania region of Italy. With its incredible views, it is the central town that makes up the very famous and UNESCO awarded Amalfi Coast (Costiera Amalfitana). Amalfi sports some impressive medieval architecture including; its cathedral of Sant'Andrea (St. Andrew), the church tower, the convent of the Cappuccini, founded by the Amalfitan Cardinal Pietro Capuano. They richly represent the artistic movement prevailing in Southern Italy. From Amalfi, we have created two exciting land adventures for you. One to Scenic Ravello and the other to Fascinating Pompeii. You may also choose to play from the yacht’s marina (Permission and conditions pending) or go on a very scenic hike with one of the officers.

  • Ponza

    Ponza is a truly delightful island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, is part of the Pontine Island group and located in the region of Lazio. The island is uniquely shaped like a crescent moon. Its glistening blue coastline is varied and dramatic with several rocky coves and sandy beaches as well as numerous grottos, caves and craggy cliffs. The island has crystal clear waters and is ideal for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. You may want to explore some of the magnificent beaches or ask the officers to lead a nice bike ride across the island. Depending on the sea conditions and approval from the local authorities, we plan on offering full water sports anchored off this Italian gem.

  • 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.

  • Amalfi - Augmented Reality visit to Pompeii

    Description

    Travel from Amalfi, through mountain roads toward Pompeii while also admiring Mount Vesuvius, the still-active volcano located about 15 miles southeast of Naples and the cause of death for Pompeii.

    A flourishing civilization, buried for 1,700 years, Pompeii is possibly the most famous excavation in the world. It has been brought to life again through the new technology of augmented reality. Now you can see how the citizens of the greatest empire the world has ever known actually lived and loved, worked and played, ate and drank and died.

    Special headsets will be provided in order to show Pompeii as it once was - you are immersed in a 360º 3D world of ancient Pompeii where history comes to life right before your eyes!  At each point of interest, you will put on your headset and experience at the same time how that site used to be 2,000 years ago and how it is now.

    Entering Pompeii by the Sea Gate we are soon in the Agorà, surrounded by temples, porticoes and law courts. 20,000 people lived in this provincial town, of whom 2,000 perished in the horrifying eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79. Twenty feet of ashes and pumice stone covered Pompeii, and much of this has been removed during the last 200 years to reveal all the details of everyday life: the steppingstones are there to help you across the street in the rainy season. The mosaic floors and the brilliant frescoes which so delighted the Pompeians shine forth in all their undiminished glory. Explore the baths and theatres, the wrestling ground and the luxurious villas with their gardens, even plaster casts of the locals at the moment of asphyxiation are there for our inspection.

    At the conclusion of your experience, enjoy a soft drink and a taste of pizza before you will reboard your transportation for the drive back to Amalfi and your yacht.

  • Trapani, Sicily - Marsala and Wine Tasting

    Description

    Enjoy the landscape during the drive to the "Via del Sale" (the salt road) known for its salt production at the "Saline". Along the way there are windmills and a panoramic view of Mozia Island. Due to its presence near the coast as an important trade city, Mozia was one of the most important Phoenician and Carthaginian settlements in the Mediterranean area.

    Proceed to Marsala, situated on Cape Boeo, which is the westernmost point of Sicily. Upon arrival, get acquainted with Marsala with a brief walking tour. This ancient city was founded by Phoenicians refugees after the destruction of Mozia by the hand of Dionysius I of Syracuse.

    Marsala's history continued as different rulers dominated the city, including the Romans, the Vandals and the Byzantines. When Muslims took the city in the 9th century, they called it Marsa-Allah (Port of Allah). The next conquerors were the Normans, who took Marsala in the 1072 and rebuilt the castle and constructed churches and convents in the area.

    The town of Marsala is famous for its dessert wine. So the next stop will be at a local Winery, the “Cantine Florio”. After the visit of the wine cellars, enjoy the opportunity to taste Sicilian specialties accompanied by different local wines including Marsala.

    Next a stop, before returning to the pier; will be at the "Torre di Ligny" one of the most beautiful panoramic points of the city. It is a massive quadrangular-plan tower built in 1671 by Prince di Ligny, from where it is possible to see the Egadi Islands (situated at about 20 minutes by ferry boat from Trapani), and, on two little islands, the "Lazzaretto" and "Torre della Colombaia".
