Port Name Description
Kepez is a seaside town in the Canakkale Province in Turkey. From Kepez SeaDream offers a unique Land Adventure to the ruins of the ancient city of Troy (Unesco Heritage Site). The movie starring Brad Pit although filmed in Malta has the actual Trojan Horse in Canakkale. Another “don’t miss” option would be to visit perhaps the most moving site in all of Turkey: Anzac Cove and the World War I battlefields of Gallipoli. We recommend that you make time and visit this hauntingly beautiful area where for more than nine months (1915-16) Allied and Turkish troops faced one another in one of the world's most tragic battles to gain control of this most important waterway " the Dardanelles.
Thassos is a Greek island in the northern Aegean Sea. It lies just off the coast of Thrace and geographically part of Macedonia. It is the 12th largest and northernmost Greek island. It is considered by many as one of the most beautiful cities in Macedonia. You may have heard it referred as the "Green Island of Greece", famous for its clean beaches, tasty wine and snow white marble which it exports to the whole world. A popular holiday destination for Greeks, but little known outside of the country. We are very hopeful to arrange a beach party on Thassos.in the not too distant future.
Kavala is a city in northern Greece and is the principal seaport of eastern Macedonia and the capital of the Kavala region. It is situated on the Bay of Kavala, across from the island of Thasos. The city is amphitheatrically built on the slopes of Mt. Symvolo and forms one of the most picturesque cities in Greece. SeaDream docks in this picturesque harbor with its brightly colored fishing caiques moored along the waterfront. Among the city's impressive landmarks are the old walls and the Byzantine castle towering above the harbor. Land Adventures will visit Philippi, established by Macedonian king Philip II, father of Alexander the Great.
Volos lies at the foot of Mt. Pelion with its forests and traditional villages. We dock on the bustling waterfront to offer our guests the opportunity to visit the incredible Monasteries of Meteora. You know the ones featured in the James Bond film "For Your Eyes Only". This is a “must do” opportunity. Meteora is one of the most imposing sights in mainland Greece. Giant rocks in bizarre shapes, ranging in height from 100 to 150 meters with monasteries built on top of these interesting 14th century formations. Volos itself is one of the largest and most attractive cities in Greece as well as one of the country’s most prominent ports.
A green island with 65 beaches. The beach scenes in "Mama Mia" were filmed here. We anchor off the attractive Skiathos Town.
Skopelos and Skiathos are part of the Sporades island group. Greener and less crowded than the Cyclades islands further south. The producers of the movie "Mama Mia" filmed the movie on these two islands. Weather permitting, we will sail by the headland with the wedding chapel shown in the movie.
We sail by the southern tip of Mount Athos, which has been a Greek Orthodox spiritual center since 1054. Monasteries and chapels cling to the steep mountainsides.
Athens is the capital as well as the largest city in Greece. It is one of the world's oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning around 3,400 years. The heritage of the classical era is still evident in the city, represented by a number of ancient monuments and works of art, the most famous of all being the Parthenon. Athens is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Acropolis of Athens and the medieval Daphni Monastery. SeaDream will embark guests from the port of Piraeus. Should you desire a private arrangement, transfer, or other local service, please see the Land Adventures tab for our destination specialists information.
Istanbul historically known as Constantinople is the largest city in Turkey and 5th largest city proper in the world with a population of over 14 million, also making it the second largest metropolitan area in Europe by population. Istanbul was selected as a European Capital of Culture for 2010. Historic areas of the city were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1985. Istanbul is a transcontinental city, straddling the Bosporus, one of the world's busiest waterways in northwestern Turkey. It is situated between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea. Its commercial and historical center lies in Europe, while a third of its population lives in Asia. SeaDream calls to this wonderful destination both as an embarkation point and a destination offering several land adventures.

Also within walking distance are important museums and the historic and picturesque old quarter of Plaka with taverns, open-air coffee shops, flea market and souvenir shops. The hotel offers 321 rooms but we recommend at least a deluxe room or one of the only 22 Junior Suites; so book early and ask for one that offers splendid views of the Acropolis, Parliament and National Gardens. We also enjoy the outdoor roof top pool and highly recommend dinner in the GB Roof Garden Restaurant. Why?

Visitors to UNESCO awarded Athens will delight in this opportunity to explore the heart of ancient Athens. Depart from the pier in your air-conditioned transportation and after a 30 minute drive you arrive at the new award winning Acropolis Museum. The museum was built in order to house every artifact found on the rock and on its feet, covering a large period of time, from the Greek Bronze Age to Roman and Byzantine Greece. The museum opened its doors to public very recently in June 21, 2009. Nearly 4,000 objects statues including the Porch of the Caryatids that welcome visitors are exhibited over an area of 14,000 square meters. The collection of the New Acropolis Museum consists principally of sculptures, many of which originally decorated the monuments of the Acropolis. These works were created to be viewed in daylight, illuminated by subtle changes in light throughout the day. Extensive use of glass in the building’s design allows the integration of natural light into the galleries, thus ensuring similar exhibition conditions. Ambient natural light floods the top-floor Parthenon Gallery and is filtered through the gallery’s glass-floored atrium into the floors below. After the visit of the Museum you will have some free time to wander around the picturesque streets of Plaka, the old preserved district of Athens with numerous art & craft shops, restaurants and cafes. After your wanderings at the old district of Athens you will board your coach for your drive to the airport.

The Archeological Site of Philippi

Visit Philippi site, the most important archaeological site of eastern Macedonia. From the pier you will meet your licensed guide and board your motorcoach for a 30 minute drive to Philippi which is the most important archaeological site of eastern Macedonia with characteristic monuments of the Hellenistic, Roman and Early Christian periods. The history of the site of Philippi begins in 360-359 B.C. when the colonists from Thasos founded the first city, called Krenides. In 356 B.C. the city was endangered by the Thacians and it turned to King Philip II for support. Philip had already foreseen the economic and strategic importance of the city, so he conquered it, he fortified it and he renamed it after himself (Philippi). After the battle of Philippi, in 42 B.C., the city became a Roman colony. A landmark in the history of Philippi was the year A.D 49 or 50, when Apostle Paul visited the city and established there the first Christian Church of Europe. This made Philippi a metropolis of Christianity. During the Byzantine period (A.D. 963-969) the walls of the city were reconstructed and at the same time the towers and the wall of the acropolis were built. The excavations on the site of Philippi began in 1914 by the French School of Archaeology at Athens. After the Second World War, excavations were resumed by the Greek Archaeological Service and the Archaeological Society. Nowadays, the archaeological exploitation of the site is carried out by the Archaeological Service, the Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki and the French School of Archaeology at Athens. Most of the monuments in the archaeological site of Philippi have been restored. A project for the restoration and the preservation of the ancient theatre is now in progress in the frame of the European program of 1994 "Historical monuments and places of spectacle". After your visit, re-board your motorcoach and drive back to the Kavala pier and your SEADREAM yacht.

The name Troy refers both to the remains of a Bronze Age fortress at Hisarlik Hill near the entrance of the Dardanelles, and the legendary city of King Priam that was destroyed by Acheans in the Trojan War. The hill is associated with the sagas of the Trojan War and its description by Homer (750 BC) in his two epic poems "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey."

The Battlefields of Gallipoli

On this adventure you have the opportunity to pay a visit to perhaps the most moving site in all of Turkey: The Anzac Cove and the World War I battlefields of Gallipoli. We recommend that you make time and visit this hauntingly beautiful area where for more than nine months (1915-16) Allied and Turkish troops faced one another in one of the world's most tragic battles to gain control of this most important waterway the Dardanelles. In order to enhance your visit and understanding of the events we are bringing in some of the most knowledgeable guides all the way from Istanbul. Start your visit with anticipation as you cross from our pier on the Asian side to the European side of the Dardanelles by local ferry and come ashore where the ill-fated Allied landing was supposed to have been made. To honor the 500,000 soldiers who lost their lives at Gelibolu (Gallipoli), the peninsula was turned into the Gelibolu Historic National Park. The area includes memorial monuments, the Ariburnu Cliffs and Tuz Lake. The natural beauty of the green hills, sandy beaches and blue waters provides a fitting resting place to those who bravely fought and died in this historic battle of World War I. One of our favorite visits is to Chunuk Bair where you enjoy a special moment as you not only soak in the beautiful views of the peninsula but also look into the actual trenches where the soldiers watched out over the cliffs. Just close your eyes and try to image... Your fist visit will be the Ari Burnu Cemetery and North Beach on the Anzac Cove, the landing place of Australian & New Zealand army crops. Continue with a drive up to the Chunuk Bair, where you will visit the Lone Pine Australian Memorial and view the Johnston's Jolly Cemetery on route. You will see the trenches & tunnels of the battlefields and the New Zealand Memorial Monument on the top of the Chunuk Bair, which was one of the two targets that planned to capture on attack where Turkish defenders and soldiers of New Zealand & Britain fought closely. You will also have a panoramic view to Suvla Bay where there was a large and ideal location for the landing of additional troops during the war. Following this moving lesson of human history, re-board the local boat for the return to Kepez and SeaDream.

Volos

The Spectacular Meteora Monasteries

Meteora is one of the most imposing sights in mainland Greece. Giant rocks in bizarre shapes, ranging in height from 100 to 150 meters. You leave the port of Volos to head Northwest crossing the agricultural plain of Thessaly. Passing provincial towns such as Larissa, Trikala and Kalambaka, you reach the extraordinary "monasteries in the air" of the Meteora. Does anyone remember the James Bond movie that was filmed at Meteora? You guessed it was For Your Eyes Only directed by John Glen and starred Roger Moore. Once a monastic community with 24 monasteries, Meteora now consists of only five active ones. They were first built in the 14th century by monks who searched for a place where they could be isolated and pray undisturbed from the rest of the world. Until 1920 most of the Meteora monasteries could only be reached by getting into a net and hauled up by a rope. Fortunately, steps were cut afterwards to all of the monasteries. You and your fellow SeaDream guests will visit the Varlaam monastery, one of the earliest and most beautiful in the valley, and the majestic Monastery of the Transfiguration (or else the Great Meteora), which is the highest of all. In both monasteries you can admire superb icons, unique mosaics and frescoes, old manuscripts, exceptional domed roofs as well as breathtaking views of the other monasteries and the surrounding area. After your visit to the monasteries, you will proceed to a local restaurant at the area of Kalambaka for lunch. After lunch and via the same road, passing Trikala and Larrisa, you return to the port of Volos and your SeaDream yacht.

Villages at the Home of Centaurs–Mount Pelion

Mount Pelion was the place where the ancient Greek gods and heroes were entertained. The home of the Centaurs according to Greek mythology. Once you visit its picturesque villages, 24 in total, you can easily understand why this place was chosen by the gods. The villages are spread out along the slopes, among chestnut and apple trees and gurgling crystal waters and most of the villages have remained untouched over the centuries and the architecture of their homes is unique. After a 30 minute drive from the Volos port you will arrive at the colorful, fertile village of Portaria with its stone houses built on the mountainside. After Portaria is the picturesque village of Makrinitsa, perhaps the most beautiful village in Pelion and one of the prettiest in Greece. You may stroll around the traditional houses, the old churches and the little shops with local delicacies. Afterwards you can rest and have a cup of coffee in the most impressive central square, under the shade of the plane trees. Apart from the view offered from here, which is majestic, you may also admire the frescoes painted by the famous painter Theophilos in one of the cafes in the square. Filled with unrivalled images you shall return to the port of Volos and your SeaDream yacht.
