SeaDream Yacht Club

SeaDream Yacht Club offers a 'yacht-like' style of cruising that is truly unique. The Club’s founder, Atle Brynestad, boasts a long history in the cruising industry, having founded Seabourn Cruise Line in 1987 and served as chairman and board member of Cunard and Carnival Cruise Line, respectively. Brynestad has drawn together his maritime expertise to create his company and to offer avid cruisers a novel seafaring experience. A far cry from the mega cruise ships carrying thousands of passengers and a plethora of facilities, SeaDream yachts offer the ultimate small-ship experience and tailor itineraries that are able to call at harder-to-reach ports. The yachting company is the proud owner of twin mega-yachts, SeaDream I and SeaDream II. Both ships have a capacity of only 112 guests and 95 crew members, creating the impression of a private cruise for guests. This astonishing service ratio of almost one member of staff per guest is just one of the many privileges offered by this luxury cruise line.

Why choose this cruise line?

SeaDream’s twin, luxury mega-yachts SeaDream I and SeaDream II were designed as prototypes for the ultra-luxury yachting experience.

Unique selling points

SeaDream Yacht Club works tirelessly to ensure that its guests enjoy a relaxing and thrilling experience on board its yachts. While presenting a relaxed and casual cruise offering for guests, with no stuffy formality that you might find on larger cruise ships, SeaDream still prides itself on its world-class service and excellent amenities, both of which have earned it an impressive series of awards; it has been named as one of the Telegraph’s best short luxury cruise companies and ranks high in the top 10 cruise line categories of a number of publications. In 2019, SeaDream was also voted the 'Best Luxury Cruise Line for Romance' by Cruise Critic US and UK and it is not hard to see why. The company is famous for going above and beyond for guests celebrating special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries, making their holiday a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Cruising with SeaDream Yacht Club

SeaDream’s slogan is 'It’s Yachting, Not Cruising' and in that, the cruise line certainly delivers. The company’s principal mission is to provide a luxurious yet casual yachting experience for seasoned cruisers who are on the lookout for something a bit different. Superbly trained staff provide an impeccable service to guests while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere on board both yachts. These are designed to have a distinct resort-like vibe, featuring the company’s signature Balinese Dream Beds on the outer decks, where pampered passengers can soak up the sun in comfort and style. The available onboard activities are endless, from early morning yoga classes to a state-of-the-art golf simulator. The top deck Yacht Bar offers panoramic views of the sea, and by night, guests can settle down to dinner while listening to gentle piano music. SeaDream yachts are cool, modern and sophisticated.

Who should cruise with SeaDream Yacht Club

SeaDream sailings are ideal for guests looking to avoid the large crowds of giant ocean liners and who seek a more authentic and intimate experience out at sea. While children are welcome, SeaDream Yacht Club generally markets itself as a cruise line for adults. Children’s activity programmes are available on the yacht, but babysitting and childcare services are not provided. Cruises with SeaDream offer the added bonus that everything onboard is included in the price. Lucky passengers needn’t worry about add-on costs and can enjoy their holiday completely stress-free. The Watersports Marina Platform is a water-lover’s paradise, packed with kayaks, banana boats, wakeboards, water-skis and much more. SeaDream Yacht Club also curates fantastic onshore excursions, from hiking and mountain biking to city tours.

Cruising destinations

SeaDream Yacht Club plies the waters of the Mediterranean, calling at popular European ports including Venice, Athens, Monte Carlo, Dubrovnik and Santorini, to name a few. In the Caribbean, passengers will get to disembark at key ports including Gustavia in St Barts, Bridgetown in Barbados and Cruz Bay in the US Virgin Islands. The cruise line also prides itself on its itineraries that include lesser-known harbour ports such as berthing points along the Corinth Canal in Greece and deluxe ports in St Barts and St Tropez.
