SeaDream cruises are incomparable if service is concerned. You are really pampered with such a crew to passenger ratio, so that everyone is recognized and addressed by name once embarked. Unlike other ship's smiling faces aimed for a tip, on SeaDream every gestures are from the heart and every effort is made to make you happy. The dinner is also among the best if not the outright best, with best ingredients and innovative cuisine, and really professional white-grove service. The open air breakfast is always memorable. It is 'yachting' not cruising, so you can expect a lot of differences and once you are on it you may like it best, even addicted to the experience, or otherwise. Yes there is no real entertainment as such and the cabins have no balcony, but all these become immaterial to me and I always have the best cruising experience on SeaDream, now my third cruise. They have specialties that you do not find in any other ship such as water sport facilities. Passengers are youngish comparing with other 5 star ships and people mix and become friends when disembark. Because of the ship's small tonnage I had the best itinerary in the Med unmatched and unmatchable by any ship even slightly larger. Cannot be better for a one week cruise and all that I regret is that it is far too short!

Cabin Review

Cabin Normal Club cabin

The cabin may be small for a 5 star ship but it is very comfortable, with unmatched stewardess service. There is fresh flower in the room and linen changed daily. You get gifts almost everyday with a card signed by a staff member, and this includes a pyjama suite from your stewardess, or a dessert from the pastry chef, and all these minor things are great gestures.

Port Reviews


Great port for embarkation, full of life and sights, and cruise terminal is easily accessible right in town, one of my favourite ports for a pre-cruise stay.


Again excellent for a one-day visit, particularly with SeaDream that departs almost midnight. The daytime sight-seeing is impressive and then there is even night-life!

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

A virtual big city with everything. Have had many visits and yet I still always want to return. Port access is easy and SeaDream provides free shuttle.

Corsica (Ajaccio)

It is Bonifaccio not Ajaccio, and what a town, with its historic upper town and a bustling seafront, on spectacular scenic setting. No better port for a one day visit and again such a wonderful port is denied to bigger ships.
