I have traveled the best of cruise lines. Sea Dreams beats them all if you are looking for an active-life-style cruise serving incredible food with impeccable service. The cabins are ample and comfortable with plenty of storage in them.
Entertainment at night is the piano / Karaoke Bar which is far more fun than going to the typical show you see on larger cruise ships. There is also an additional outside bar on the top deck to hang out at while enjoying the evening sights around the port you are in or cruising the seas. Of course there is an extensive book and movie library that you may borrow from. Every cabin has a DVD Player and an ample TV to watch films on. The ship also offers movies almost every night that are currently on pay-per-view for your enjoyment in the lounge or, on some nights, on the pool deck outside......popcorn is always served HOT! For those who like to gamble, you can enjoy a game of black jack in the mini-casino near the piano bar.
People are fun and interesting and you really have a chance to more than just "meet and greet". You certainly can get to know the people on board travelling with you. You also have the option of remaining quiet and uninvolved if you wish. There are only 80 to 100 people on board for most trips as the yacht ........ yes this truly is yachting NOT cruising !.....has only 50 staterooms.
The back end of the ship drops down when anchored and many water sports are available for passengers to use including but not limited to jet skiing, water skiing, sailing, kayaking and much more including swimming right off the back of the ship......FANTASTIC !
Within the first 24 hours the entire staff knows you by name and what your likes and dislikes are. They know what you want before you do !Embarking and disembarking are a pleasure and so very easy whether it be when you first arrive or leave, or when you are at ports along the way and using a tender to go ashore. No waiting for anything ever. Your tender might have one or two people on it or as many as 10 but in either case you never have to wait more than a minute or two......ok maybe 4 minutes once or twice!
There is never a line to do anything and the open seating policy during mealtimes is delightful. Eat by yourself, with new friends, and/ or different folks every night. It's like going to a gourmet restaurant each evening. Weather permitting, breakfast and lunch are always served on the outside (covered dining area) deck. It's beautiful and just delightful. Dinners are served in the dining salon some evenings and on deck others.
This cruise (Yachting) line is simply terrific and I highly recommend it for young and old. However, this is NOT a ship to bring young children or teenagers on.........it's geared for adults only.
Our cruise was in the Caribbean and we stopped at island ports such as St. Johns, Anquilla, St. Barths and more. In closing, if you want a FANTASTIC cruising (Yachting)experience then be sure to take a SeaDreams Yacht Club cruise........I'm booking another already and so will you.
