5 Things That Make it a “Yachting” Experience

November 3rd, 2016 by Jennifer Nguyen

What makes a SeaDream Yacht Club experience so uniquely different from big cruise vacations?

1. Open deck plans and teak decks As you take the first steps on board, you can tell the atmosphere is just different. Greeted by a warm welcome from the captain, you can be certain that SeaDream is simply, not a cruise. There’s something quite liberating as you explore SeaDream I and identical twin SeaDream II with their open deck plans and teak outdoor decks. The fresh sea air and calm breezes can even be enjoyed at a romantic dinner onboard. Just one look at one of our yachts in port and you can identify just how unique SeaDream truly is. These sisters truly are mega yachts in a marina full of oversized cruise ships.

Welcome Aboard SeaDeam Yacht Club

2. Balinese Dream Beds. Lounging at it’s finest, our Balinese Dream Beds make the yachting experience even more distinctive. You can enjoy unobstructed views as you watch the ever-changing backdrops of the beautiful Mediterranean and Caribbean Seas pass by. You can even sleep underneath a sea of stars on these beds, or treat yourself to an oversized bed at the front of the yacht. It’s romantic, relaxing and rewardingly peaceful.

Balinese Dream Beds

3. Intimate ports and overnights Another perk of yachting? You can travel to where larger ships and cruises can’t go. With SeaDream, you can enjoy the little luxuries of the harder to reach ports and harbors. The Corinth Canal passage is breathtaking. The overnights in ports like St. Barts and St Tropez allows for more adventure, and more opportunities to create memories that last a lifetime. Share these unique SeaDream moments with the friends you make onboard. We’re all “yachting, not cruising” and that’s a great thing to have in common.

Corinth Canal

4. Water Sports Marina Head down to the water sports marina and you’ll find easily accessible water toys from wave runners to paddle boards. Our trained activities staff make it effortless to hop on a jet ski or a banana boat right off the back of the yacht, and the ease makes the experience so much more enjoyable.

SeaDream Wave Runners

5. Award-Winning Personalized Service The simplest difference that makes SeaDream a yachting experience is why our guests come back over and over again. It’s for the award-winning service. With an exceptional crew of 95 to just 112 guests, each individual will feel as if they are on their very own private yacht. Our exceptional shore side staff and onboard crew pay close attention to the smallest of details to ensure a true SeaDream Yacht Club experience to each of our guests. They remember your food preferences. They’ll go out of their way to meet your simplest of needs. They remember your name. You won’t be able to find service like this on a cruise.

Celebrate with SeaDream!

July 18th, 2016 by Jennifer Nguyen

  • Put the eggs in a bowl and add the shallots, chives and créme frîache to taste

  • Using an “egg top cutter“, remove the cap of the raw eggs, empty them and rinse the inside of the egg with fresh water (no need to waste the eggs, they can be used for omelets

  • Place a small dollop of cream cheese on the plate, place the egg on the cream cheese so it will stand upright
  • Place tomato brunoise topped with a sprig of parsley and melba or toasted French bread on the plate and of course, a mother of pearl spoon. Metal adversely affects the flavor so do not use a regular spoon to serve
Bon Appétit!

A Day Celebrated to Mark the French Revolution

July 14th, 2016 by Jennifer Nguyen

On July 14th, Bastille Day or La Fête Nationale, is honored in France and around the world with displays of patriotism to celebrate the French Revolution. SeaDream offers multiple voyages along the French Riviera, visiting ports such as Nice, St. Tropez and Cannes where guests are immersed with culture, flavor, and history. Bastille was originally a medieval fortress in Paris and later used as a prison that held upper-class criminals. At the time of the revolution, King Louis XVI reigned over France and resentment towards the ruling began to build up amongst the majority of the people. They demanded an end to the French monarchy. In 1789, a revolutionary battle at Bastille broke out with French revolutionists invading the prison to set 7 prisoners free. This resulted in a riot that ended with a victory on July 14th. Bastille was captured and the regime ended. King Louis XVI was executed a few years later in 1893, as well as his wife, Marie Antoinette. The French Revolution was well underway after the invasion, and this was the beginning of the freedom that is celebrated today.

Love Notes from the Sea

February 11th, 2016 by Jennifer Nguyen

As Valentine’s Day is approaching, we’re inspired by the love and wonders of the sea. There is nothing more beautiful than the mysterious ocean and its parallels to love and life. The turquoise, serene waters that soothe our minds is the same body of water that can turn dark and unpredictable—and yet we love her still for everything she has to offer; she nurtures us, provides us with food and heals our souls. As Isak Dinesen put it, “The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.” The ocean is an everyday reminder to appreciate our lives and our loved ones, even when paradise doesn’t seem so blissful. Sometimes, you just have to go with the waves. To celebrate one of the most romantic days of the year, we want to share some more memorable quotes as we admire the beauty of the open waters.
“The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul.” Wyland “If my love were an ocean, there would be no more land” Jay Asher “As the ocean is never full of water, so is the heart never full of love.” Unknown “A woman knows the face of the man she loves as a sailor knows the open sea.” Honore de Balzac
Whether it’s love in the air or that cool breeze right before a storm, let the ocean be a reminder of the natural ebb and flow of life. Reflect in the romance the sea holds within her waters, which is always just a SeaDream away. ⚓️

Each itinerary visits multiple ports away from larger vessels where SeaDream guests can explore ashore with no lines and return to their yacht for award-winning personalized service.” –Bob Lepisto, SeaDream Yacht Club President 
Sail away to secluded ports including Saba, Culebrita and Vieques, Puerto Rico, a pleasant refresh to some of the traditionally frequented islands by other cruise travelers. Other Caribbean destinations include St. Barts, Barbados, the French West Indies, the Grenadines and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
