SeaDream II

Our Ship Review
Deal Expert / Travel Blogger

SeaDream II, built in 1985 and operated since 2001 by SeaDream Yacht Club, is a small jewel, more akin to a private yacht than a bustling mass-market cruise ship. With no more than 112 guests, the onboard atmosphere is upscale but without pretension, and once you board pretty much everything is included, from wine to caviar to a Champagne party on the beach. SeaDream II, like its identical twin SeaDream I, explores lesser-known ports throughout the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. A multi-million-dollar refurbishment in 2022 updated every stateroom, added a new teak deck and two forward-facing Jacuzzis, and spruced up the restaurant and lounges. 

What We Love

Intimate Shore Excursions: In the Med, tours might include shopping in the produce market in St. Tropez or Sorrento with the chef, or accompanying the captain on a walk up to Anacapri.

Food for All Types: No matter what your dietary needs may be, SeaDream caters to them. There are even vegan "raw" options, and a juice bar. 

Best Known For

Personal Service: SeaDream II has 95 crew members and only 112 passengers. You’ll feel taken care of but not intruded upon.

Parties: In the Caribbean, the ship throws a Champagne and caviar party on the beach. In Europe, if there’s no private beach nearby, it’s replaced by a martini party around the pool.

Who It's Best For

Sociable Couples Who Love the Good Life: Your fellow cruisers will be duos who enjoy conversation, upscale cuisine, and casual luxury.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

No High-Octane Activities: Don’t expect waterslides, cutting-edge entertainment, late-night discos, or other over-the-top features found on larger mainstream cruise ships. The atmosphere tends to the quiet side — except for certain evenings in the Piano Bar.

There are no Private Balconies: You’ll need to forgo private outdoor space (but there’s plenty of public deck space — with comfy Balinese day beds) aboard this intimate ship.
