Ship Facts: SeaDream II Review (by Cruise Critic!)
SEADREAM II - Singapore to Mumbai - 5 stars for intimacy

If you are wanting a Las Vegas-styled holiday on the water with shows and dazzle dazzle, crowds, formal dress and expectations and dozens of dining options all indoors, then Seadream is not the ship for you.

But the many returned seasoned travellers on Seadream experience an INTIMATE holiday, whether that is a relaxed time to please yourself in the ample deck space, a close rapport with attentive staff or join a small groups of funseekers around the bar.

Seadream II built in the mid-1980s is certainly not shiny and new, but spotless and well maintained in timeless navy and cane with touches of maritime art. It's outstanding feature is the 100 or so staff for the 100 or so maximum passengers; staff seem to be passionate in making guests at ease and remembering names.

Food on a cruise ship must be a challenge in the heat of Asia but there was plenty of menu choices. Being all inclusive made it very good value even for those who demanded better than the house wines. We Australians smiled at the melting chocolate petit fours in the heat but that is about the only cristicism.

It is certainly marketed towards 40, 50 and 60yo couples but, it seems with the continuous repeat patronage, that the average age is rising. Without facilities, it is perhaps not a place for children. Neither is it suitable for those with mobility issues however by 95yo father was treated superbly.

I hope that Seadream returns to Asia. Seasoned travellers enjoy that this little ship can closer to the action in ports and use all sorts of dumpy old floating ferries to get to shore. This added to the fun.

This was my first cruise ever and have relied on the advice of fellow passengers respecting that others with longer cruise resumes may have more experienced opinions. This is written for those like me, rather bombarded with choices, to assist in choosing a holiday.
