Once reserved for Royalty and the jet set, the powder-fine beaches and turquoise bays of the Caribbean are now relished by discerning travellers from all over the world. Idyllic islands enchant visitors with their laid-back atmosphere, fabulous climate and serene natural beauty, and what better way to experience the Caribbean than through the intimacy of yachting harbours and ports, on board a luxury cruise. Designed with the affluent, sophisticated and well travelled in mind, SeaDream caters to clientele anxious for exclusivity.
With a refined and club-like atmosphere, each voyage that SeaDream embarks on offers a completely different, and unique experience from the other. Whether you wish to be tendered ashore to one of the deserted stretches of white Caribbean sand beach for a gourmet barbecue and party at the water’s edge, or lie under the stars on a Balinese Dream Bed on deck, SeaDream delivers on every level of exclusivity and splendour, ensuring you an unforgettable experience of the Caribbean.
With a superb attention to detail, the facilities on board SeaDream’s vessels are second-to-none. It isn’t difficult to see why discerning travellers return to voyage on SeaDream year after year. Exclusive service and amenities ensure that everyone is treated as an honoured guest in a private home. With a maximum of 112 guests pampered by an award-winning crew of 95, all grounded in luxury hotel etiquette, individual needs are given the greatest attention by impeccable service. The interiors of the vessels are nothing less than exquisite, combining contemporary elegance with timeless glamour, all with a distinctly relaxed feel about it; teak panelled walls and lavish yet delicate furnishings are a constant indulgence, and chic public rooms are adorned with fresh flowers. The main gathering places are the Main Salon with piano bar, the library with a selection of over 1,000 books, and “Top of the Yacht” bar with 360°panoramic views out across the Caribbean Sea. In terms of cuisine, dine al fresco on the deck or in the elegant Dining Salon, feasting upon expertly crafted menus designed by SeaDream’s chefs using the freshest of ingredients often sourced locally by the chef.
Of course, the beauty of yachting lies just as much with frivolities on shore than it does with decadence off shore. SeaDream’s tiny vessel, Zodiac, allows for passengers to access idyllic, isolated coves, protected by an exquisite carpet of coral. Once on shore, there is nothing left to do but wander, absorbing the sights and smells of the Caribbean air. Alternatively, take a complimentary mountain bike trip for an added thrill to your endeavours, or join the officers and crew who are well versed in narrating the history of these beautiful islands. You even have the opportunity of accompanying the chef to the local markets, to experience local cuisine and specialities in the most authentic way possible.
From November through to April, SeaDream offers voyages through the azure, crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. Sailing to both well-known Caribbean destinations and unspoilt, idyllic islands alike, many of which are beyond the reach of larger ships, SeaDream reaches a destination that will suit everyone. The original jet-set destination, St Barts, is a French-Caribbean jewel, perfect for A-List beach lounging and French ambience.
With brasseries and haute couture shopping dotted along the coastline, St Barts is an evocative haven for the elite, with chic luxury encompassed in exclusivity and serenity. Alternatively, disconnect in pristine surroundings and low-key luxury at deserted islets such as St John and Tobago Cays. Lush acres of Caribbean forest border secluded beaches for those with reverence for the environment and a desire to escape modern glitz and distraction.
With SeaDream, the Caribbean is a truly premier destination for premier clientele.
