I am 57 and my husband is 63. We enjoy good health and like to be active. We were invited to spend this cruise with another couple. We have cruised on big ships: Disney, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, and Holland America, as well as the smaller ones: Wind Star and Wind Spirit Sail ships. (We've also cruised in our own trawler as well as sailed various sailboats throughout the years.) This was definitely our favorite commercial cruise.
First of all, we know that both SeaDream yachts are going to undergo room renovations by May 2021. Because of this, my review is only for those people who will be traveling before this occurs. The cabin was fine. It showed wear and tear and age. But, it was clean and perfectly supplied. We were happy, however, to hear of the coming renovations.
None of the cabins have balconies or opening portholes or windows. However, the cabins on the 3rd and 4th decks have big picture windows, and the cabins on deck 2 have 2 portholes each. I did not miss the balcony even though I have never sailed without one. We did not spend a lot of time in our cabin, and no one else seemed to.
Many nights, we received a treat from SeaDream: Monogrammed pajamas, glasses holders, mints, pens, bag for wet swim suits, and monogrammed tumblers.
Just FYI, each standard room has:
1. A magnification mirror
2. Only 1 - 220 volt outlet in the main cabin. One in the bathroom "for shavers only." (Luckily, I brought an extension cord!)
3. 2 USB ports
4. Bvlgari shampoo/body wash, conditioner, body lotion
5. Blow dryer
6. Laundry service available
7. Robes and slippers
8. No iron.... which I always like to have. ;(
9. Best towels ever! Not too soft, not too hard, but Just right! Thanks to Maiwan, the Laundry Master!!!
All of the cabin attendants were super attentive, and although we had a dedicated cabin attendant, we could ask any of them for anything, and they were happy to comply. They were the " quietly enthusiastic" crew who were there all the time without being in your space or doing their busy work in front of you. A perfect combination of classy organization.
Important Note: Our room was closest to the bow (front) which meant we felt the wave action more than those in the middle. This did not bother us at all, even when the seas were rough. However, it WILL bother those who are prone to sea-sickness. You should chose a more middle cabin if you are concerned.
