Sweet wines have an undeserved weak reputation. Partially, it is because people tend to advance from sweeter, simple wines like a blush zinfandel to a better quality dry wine. But this is comparing apples and oranges. In saying you don’t like sweet wines, you miss some of the best wines in the world!
These seriously sweet classics are not sugared to mask faults, like a cheap off-dry or semi-sweet wine can be. They are sweet because the grapes have been dried on racks, harvested very late or attacked by something called “noble rot”, which leads to a much higher concentration of sugars in the wine but also an amazing intensity, concentration and complexity. It must be balanced by freshness, and when it is, it’s just a burst of flavors in your mouth!
The very best sweet wine in the world is a prestigious bottle of Sauternes from the castle Chateau d’Yquem. Of course, we sell this aboard SeaDream. It is a pricey tipple, but worth every penny. Try it with a good cheese, a gruyere or blue cheese, or a dessert. However, when you pick a dessert wine, make sure it is as sweet or sweeter than the dessert itself, to keep the balance right. Our sommeliers aboard SeaDream can help with that!

What took us so long? That is the question my husband, Steve, and I have been asking ourselves since our return in October from our SeaDream Yacht trip along the Amalfi coast! Both of us had been on BIG cruise ships in the past and decided that crowded cruising was not our favorite method of travel. Our 7th wedding anniversary was approaching and to celebrate we wanted to see the Mediterranean coast but didn’t want to pack and unpack every day or two. Looking for something amazing this time around, we began talking with friends who are veteran/professional cruisers. Some have up to 18 cruises under their belt! When SeaDream yacht club popped up from several respected friends, we checked it out and found an itinerary for the perfect time and stops. Little did we know what a treat was in the offing!
Top five reasons for deciding we are confirmed SeaDream yachters (they say we are yachting, not cruising):
1. SeaDream yacht club makes it easy to indulge your passions- traveling, eating, shopping, and napping. Each morning, we hopped on the tender to go in to town, explored shops and sites, and headed back to SeaDream II for delicious lunches where we would continue to be spoiled. I am a jewelry designer (you can see my jewelry shop on my blog here www.KayDonahueDesigns.com) and enjoyed new adventures each day in lovely little towns on the hunt for bead shops. I am so looking forward to seeing all my findings of murano glass, obsidian, coral, and more spread out on my studio work table. I can’t help but be excited for the jewelry I am about to create inspired by the destinations the SeaDream II took us.
2. For one week we were royalty!
I’ve never experienced a crew to guest ratio so high! With only about 100 guests to a crew of 98 or so, feeling individually pampered and special is an understatement. There isn’t assigned seating at meals, so you are free to dine as a couple or join new friends. Guests came from all parts of the world all with interesting stories to tell. We couldn’t help but feel like longtime friends with these people who were strangers before SeaDream II made it possible for our paths to cross. The very first night on the yacht, we met and had dinner with another jewelry designer. She and I had had a ball exchanging favorite websites catering to our art. Some other new best friends from London were delightful to visit with – and listen to in the piano bar after dinner. They both had beautiful voices and made use of the huge books of lyrics to entertain those of us in the bar. And—they were indulging one of their passions as they got to sing while accompanied by the wonderful ship’s pianist.
3. The divine SeaDream food experience.
The variety of choices was almost overwhelming at all three main meals. One could be a very healthy diner with fruit, vegetarian, seafood and fresh vegetables. One could also indulge in favorites like lobster, steak, pasta and over the top desserts. You could also try something you might never have had like I did. At dinner one night I opted for Indian food and never having eaten Indian cuisine before, I wasn’t sure what to order. Not to worry, I was aboard a SeaDream Yacht and they knew what to serve me that would ensure a delicious experience! In fact, everything we had to eat on board was fabulous. Each day I looked forward to the soup of the day at lunch. If the chef did a cookbook of his soups I would be the first in line to buy it. YUM! I will always remember the lobster bisque…
4. The crew makes you want to run away and work on a SeaDream Yacht.
They look like they love what they do, are treated very well by the company, and it shows in their pampering of the passengers. For instance, I like hot milk for my coffee. After the first morning, it just magically appeared at our table. The servers made a special effort to get to know us – and remember our names. The SeaDream yacht club crew makes you feel like you are the best guests they have ever had!
5. The SeaDream yacht club crew handles problems (even ones by no fault of their own) with grace.
What could have been a very frustrating and time-consuming irritant was handled beautifully by our crew. One of our two checked bags from Madrid did not wind up on the carousel in the Rome airport. Even though it was my husband’s bag, I had some important stuff in it – not critical, but needed. We talked to the airline at the airport, and after we got onto the boat, we advised the SeaDream crew. THEY were the ones who made all of the calls to the airline over several days, tracked it down and arranged for delivery to the ship in the correct port. Because of this, we were able to enjoy this amazing travel experience worry-free. After all, we were in the hands of the SeaDream yacht club.Thank you SeaDream II for an unforgettable anniversary vacation we will cherish forever! -Kay and Steve, SeaDream Club members guests aboard SeaDream II

Full charters with SeaDream Yacht Club, known among discerning travelers for its award-winning, luxury yachting experiences, offer the ultimate gift of lifetime memories, rather than material possessions, to guests interested in celebrating important milestones with family and friends. Fifty-six well-appointed staterooms, including 10 suites, accommodate a maximum of 112 guests in an intimate, elegantly casual setting. “Many of our group guests are drawn by the size of our vessels, the opportunities for customization and the detailed planning provided by our dedicated charter coordinators,” says SeaDream President, Bob Lepisto. “Sailing the waters of the Caribbean or Europe on a mega-yacht with close friends is truly the ultimate celebration for marking a memorable moment.”
Birthdays, anniversaries and family reunions are among the special occasions guests are choosing to celebrate with fully-inclusive, private charters aboard the mega-yachts SeaDream I and II. Examples include a tandem celebration, in which both a husband and wife celebrated their 60th birthdays with loved ones on a voyage of their choosing. Surprise parties are also a hit, when guests know they are taking a SeaDream voyage, but later discover it will be on a private charter shared only with their friends and family. When planning a private celebration aboard SeaDream, our Charter Coordinators assist in every aspect, from the custom itinerary to onboard activities to special dining preferences and entertainment options. Custom shore excursions in locations seldom visited by larger ships may be arranged, such as guided expeditions through the secluded coastal towns of the Mediterranean. With a 1-to-1 crew to guest ratio, no detail is too small and no request goes unheeded when planning a SeaDream charter. With an emphasis on outdoor living, friends and families can take advantage of a fleet of water toys including wave runners, kayaks, water skis and wakeboards. The only Thai-certified spa at sea, SeaDream’s Spa includes treatments in the private, open-air massage area. Lounging on deck in the yacht’s signature Balinese Dream Beds is the perfect place for couples to take in ocean views during the day, or star-gaze at night with full turn-down service upon request.
Culinary excellence is just another facet that makes a SeaDream charter so memorable. Guests can join the chef for a trip to the local market, sourcing only the freshest, indigenous ingredients for their dishes. For a special toast, the Dining Salon accommodates all 112 guests to enjoy an unforgettable meal together. Dining al fresco is also an option and highly encouraged. Menus tailored specifically to each charter, combined with anticipatory service make epicurean experiences aboard SeaDream ones to remember. Contact your travel professional or SeaDream for information on booking groups and charters.
