Monemvasia is on the southeastern coast of the Peloponnese archipelago. The town is a part of the municipality of Laconia, and draws its name from the Greek terms “mone” and “emvasia”, meaning “single entrance”. Within the last few decades, the medieval buildings were restored, GR-86 was built to connect to the mainland, and tourism had begun to flourish. It’s known for its hidden Byzantine fortress town, bearing Venetian, Frankish, Ottoman and, of course, Byzantine influence. Its nickname is “The Rock”, and “the Gibraltar of the East”. 8,000 years ago, in ancient Cape Minoa, Monemvasia was a port of call for travelers between Greece, the Cyclades, and Crete. It is believed that the rock was a Minoan trading post in its antiquity, and helped join the Mycenaean and Minoan cultures. Monemvasia was joined with the Peloponnese mainland until 375 AD when a massive earthquake compromised the region’s geomorphology. Historical towns such as Asopos, Vies, Epidaurus Limera and Plythra were either partly or completely submerged as a result of the earthquake. Earliest Laconian settlers were Greek refugees escaping the Arab and Visigoth invasions in 583 AD. From the 10th century AD on, the town became a core maritime and trade port. The town’s geographic positioning made it a strategic stronghold for the Byzantine military operations – so much so that it ultimately became the last Byzantine stronghold to fall to Greece and the first liberated fortress in the Peloponnese for Greece which led to success during the ongoing fight against the Turks in 1821. Over the centuries, there were many battles between the Venetians, Byzantines, Franks, Turks, as well as the Pope, as they realized the geopolitical importance of Monemvasia. Its recent resurgence in importance was born from its increase in tourist interest. Tourists visit the Monemvasia Fortress, as well as the Christos Elkomenos Church, and archeological site of Epidavros Limera. Climb to the church of Hagia Sophia to catch a glimpse of the most magnificent views of the town and the Myrtoan Sea.

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.

Mykonos is one of the most visited Greek Islands. It is part of the Cyclades group and lies between Tinos, Syros, Paros and Naxos. The island spans an area of 85.5 square kilometers (33.0 sq mi) and rises to an elevation of 341 meters (1,119 feet) at its highest point. Mykonos is so incredibly beautiful; it is not surprising that it has become one of the most desired destinations in the world. When you also add the cosmopolitan lifestyle, the sophisticated nightlife and the historical treasures of the nearby Unesco Awarded Delos you’ll have the recipe for an unforgettable holiday. SeaDream usually anchors just of the famous windmills and tenders directly to the old town. Guests have a few organized options including the Sacred Island of Delos. Others may simply want to explore the island’s incredible beaches, boutiques, clubs and churches independently.

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.
