Location Haifa
In
Out

In ebullient Haifa, you’ll be dazzled by one of the most meticulously maintained parks in the world, the terraced Bahá’í Gardens, where each tree, flower and even blade of grass is lovingly tended by followers of the Bahá’í faith. This UNESCO World Heritage site, which is dotted with ornate buildings and fountains, lies at the base of Mount Carmel. For exceptional views of the city and the shimmering sea, ascend further up the holy mountain aboard a cable car, alighting at an ideal lookout near the Carmelite Monastery of Stella Maris. Roam through the 12th-century underground headquarters of the Knights of Saint John in Acre, a UNESCO World Heritage site nearly 4,000 years old. In the vaulted Hospitaller Quarter, witness how medieval crusaders lived and received medical treatment. Above ground, the Ottoman influence is evident at the splendid Khan al-Umdan, a colonnaded gathering place for merchants. Travel to nearby Nazareth and visit the contemporary Basilica of the Annunciation, erected where Mary is said to have learned from the Archangel Gabriel that she would give birth to the son of God, and experience life 2,000 years ago at Nazareth Village, an interactive community populated with denizens enacting life in Jesus’ time.

Location Ashdod
In
Out

The bustling port town of Ashdod provides easy access to Israel’s most important cultural hubs, the cosmopolitan city of Tel Aviv and glorious Jerusalem. In Tel Aviv, explore the White City, a vast collection of exceptionally preserved Bauhaus-style buildings that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Step into beguiling artists’ studios and galleries in neighboring Jaffa, a town of densely packed streets that is possibly the world’s oldest port. As one of the holiest sites for Judaism, Christianity and Islam, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed walled Old City of Jerusalem abounds with countless religious and cultural treasures. Watch the sun glinting off the gilded Dome of the Rock, spend some time reflecting at the Western Wall and visit the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, built at the location where Jesus is believed to have been crucified and buried. Take in sweeping views of the entire city from the Mount of Olives, which overlooks the Gardens of Gethsemane, home to gnarled olive trees over 2,000 years old. A bit further east, float upon the therapeutic waters of the Dead Sea, the lowest place on Earth, and contemplate the profound significance of these sacred lands.

Antalya is located on the coast in Southwest Turkey. This is sometimes known as the Turkish Riviera (also known as the Turquoise Coast) and happens to be the country’s biggest international sea resort. The population is close to a million inhabitants. Recently, Antalya became the third most visited city in the world by number of international arrivals, just behind Paris and London. The town center with its narrow cobbled streets of historic Ottoman era houses, the old center of Antalya has been restored to retain much of its historical character.

Location Rhodes (Lindos), Greece
In
Out

The Old City of Rhodes has been delegated a World Heritage Site. Some speculate that after the Acropolis of Athens and the Volcano of Santorini, Rhodes is one of the most impressive places in Greece. Wandering through the medieval city, especially on a warm evening, is one of life’s treasures. The old city is closed to most traffic. The main streets and thoroughfares are full of shops and restaurants but the back streets are mostly residences. The massive walls of the city were rebuilt by the European order of Knights Hospitaller after the Turkish siege of 1480. The walls are 12 meters thick and the moat more than 21 meters wide. The length of the walls is about three miles and each section was defended by one of the Langues or tongues which corresponded to the languages spoken where the particular group of knights came from. SeaDream will dock close to the entrance of the walled city. We recommend you explore the old town and if you haven’t already done so, visit the Lindos Acropolis.

Location Santorini, Greece
In
Out

Santorini, officially named Thira, is the southernmost Greek island that is within the Cyclades archipelago, in the southern Aegean Sea. Part of the regional unit Thira, the municipality of Santorini is comprised of the island Santorini, Therasia, and other uninhabited islands of Christiana, Palaia Kameni, Aspronisi, and Nea Kameni. The geological history of Santorini is quite complex due to the area’s volcanism and is currently a water-filled caldera: a rectangular lagoon that is surrounded by three steep cliffs. The name Santorini is a contraction of the name Santa Irini, which is based on an ancient cathedral found in the island’s village of Perissa. This name was given by the Latin Empire in the 13th Century. During the Ottoman Empire, Santorini was called “Santurin” or “Santoron”, and in early times, it was named Kalliste, Strongyle, and Thera. Santorini is the site of the Minoan Eruption (also known as the Thera Eruption), one of the largest eruptions ever in recorded history. The origins of Plato’s story of Atlantis is believed to have a connection to this eruption that destroyed the early settlements on what was formerly a single island. The descriptions found of Plato’s Atlantis strongly resembles Thera, and with seismological, archaeological, and volcanological evidence, these claims are further supported. There is also speculation that the eruption is related to the Exodus of the Israelites, as well as causing the plagues described in the Bible in ancient Egypt. The economy is sustained by two principal industries: tourism and agriculture, and has recently been voted as one of the world’s most beautiful islands in various outlets such as the Traveler’s Choice Awards in 2015. The wine industry in Santorini is becoming more relevant as well, made up of Assyrtiko, Athiri and Aidani grape varieties, which is best exemplified in Vinsanto (“holy wine”) which contains all three Aegean varietals. Although Santorini is highly arid, it’s unique ecology and climate allows it to grow unique and prized produce, such as cherry tomatoes, Lathyrus clymenum (a legume), and capers. Thus, tourists indulge in local specialties such as Brantada, Fava, and the traditional dish Santorinio Sfougato.

The two elegant mega-yachts that make up the SeaDream fleet have each been carefully designed to deliver an experience akin to holidaying aboard your own private yacht. The SeaDream mantra of ‘It’s yachting, not cruising’ is reflected in the luxe yet laidback lifestyle enjoyed aboard SeaDream I and SeaDream II, creating a unique niche experience based upon sophisticated and modest days being pampered and enjoying a new level of privacy.

A SeaDream voyage sees a maximum of 112 guests served by an award-winning crew of 95, bringing a new level of attention and service to the seas. Each dedicated crew member strives to accommodate your every need, from the gourmet chefs who create world-class cuisine to the crew members who accompany you ashore to show you the sights from an expert point of view. A SeaDream Yacht Club holiday is for travellers who love to sail the seas from within more intimate surroundings than those offered by large cruise lines. With accolades year upon year for the best boutique fleet, SeaDream promises an exceptional way to see the world in style.

It’s Yachting, Not Cruising!

SeaDream’s twin mega yachts offer a balance of casual comfort and refined elegance, the combination of which you can only truly find when yachting. Be as relaxed or active as you like, as when you set sail with SeaDream it’s all about your personal choice. On your SeaDream voyage you will experience intimate harbours, spend overnight stays soaking up the culture and nightlife of each destination, dine alfresco, enjoy water sports and swimming from the yacht’s very own Marina Platform and make the most of the 360 degree views from the ‘Top of the Yacht’ bar.

What’s Included In My Fare?

Your SeaDream fare includes an ocean view stateroom complete with flat screen TV, mini bar, Bvlgari® bath amenities and plush terry bathrobes. Gourmet meals, gratuities, use of the fitness centre, activities with the crew from biking, hiking, kayaking and snorkelling, use of the water sports equipment from the yacht marina and SeaDream’s Champagne and Caviar Splash in the Caribbean is also included within your fare.

Cuisine A La Minute

Choose to dine in the elegantly appointed Dining Salon, where the service is just as impeccable as the cuisine. Alternatively, dine al fresco on deck at the Topside Restaurant, enjoying an unforgettable evening with dinner under a full moon whilst anchored in port. All cuisine about a SeaDream vessel is served ‘à la minute’ and carefully created from the freshest of produce.

It Wouldn’t be Yachting Without a Water Marina…

No yachting holiday is complete without a private marina and SeaDream I and SeaDream II each have their own retractable units. Swim off the back of the yacht, dive a little deeper beneath the surface with the snorkelling gear provided, soak up the sun on a floating island and trampoline, hop on a banana boat, take a ride on a personal water craft or be more adventurous with a tube, wake or water-ski ride.

It’s All About the Great Outdoors

A SeaDream voyage isn’t only about where you will go, but the experience as you go there too. Make the most of the yachting lifestyle as you flit between destinations, joining crew members on hikes and guided walks, making the most of complimentary mountain bike trips and awakening your inner foodie as you accompany the chef to exciting local markets, sampling local specialities along the way. With your SeaDream yacht anchored off-shore, a Zodiac tender will transport you directly to the world’s most exotic and isolated beaches.

There are optional Land Adventures to suit everyone from the sportsperson to history buffs and thrill seekers, so you can choose between sampling local wines and olives, swimming with dolphins, taking helicopter riders over volcanoes, river rafting, hunting for truffles and so much more.

Your Nights Aboard

Whether you fancy sleeping beneath the stars on a Balinese Dream Bed, watching Starlit Movies on an outdoor movie screen or enjoying a fine cognac and cigar at the ‘Top of the Yacht’ Bar, you really can take the evening all in your stride. The sounds of live music will follow you around ship and you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy pre-dinner cocktails and hors d’oeuvres whilst mingling with your fellow passengers.

Is SeaDream For Me?

If a balcony is a prerequisite for you, then you may be disappointed to hear that neither ship in the SeaDream fleet offer them, as one would expect aboard ships so closely modelled on private yachts. Each vessel’s expanse of teak deck offers more than enough space for you and your fellow passengers to find a peaceful corner of your own, with views of the ocean surrounding you as you relax.

SeaDream’s philosophy centres around casual perfection without exception and you won’t find the afternoon teas, black-tie galas and stage shows associated with traditional cruising. Instead, you will join well-travelled fellow passengers to see the world’s most amazing destinations in absolutely comfort, just as you would aboard your own private mega-yacht. If peace, privacy and pampering is high on your list, SeaDream fits the bill perfectly.
