The best holiday ever
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
It is difficult to say what is the best thing about Seadream as everything was first class. We actually said we never thought we would get tired of drinking champagne but we enjoyed the house wines so much we ended up drinking wine more often. The staff were friendly More and efficient without being intrusive and it was such a relief to know they were not just doing it for the tips like on the bigger cruise ships...the tip seekers have ruined several cruises for me.
I would like to name everyone but have to single out Michail and Gideon for service and Silvano + Pierre looked after us very well. The cabin girls were giggly and very friendly.
The food was superb and not stodgy which meant we didnt walk round all day feeling overfed, lots of fresh ,quality ingredients and the portion sizes were just right. The breakfast specials were excellent and we enjoyed fresh fish most days for lunch. Dinner was a real event, we met some great friends and we had a table for 8 on our last night which was great fun. The highlight was the tasting menu, the pumpkin soup was one of the best things I have ever eaten.
During the day there was no pressure to do anything we read in the library or sunbathed on deck or went into the ports. Port Vendres was a favourite as we docked in the harbour and went and had lunch across the road.
We have said for the next few years that we will spend all our holidays on Sea dream as nothing else will live upto it....we are booking again for September we are really looking forward to it. Less
