For over fifteen years, the SeaDream Yacht Club has operated two yachtlike ships, on 7 to 15-day voyages.
SeaDream I and SeaDream II each 108 metres were built in 1984. They were formerly named Sea Goddess I & II, and later Seabourn Goddess I & II. By being small they can visit small harbours and ports in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, that are inaccessible by larger ships.
Their yachting experience credentials are defined by their on board casual elegance, and superyacht style service, 5-star dining and inspiring itineraries. But the ships were no youngsters when they joined the Sea Dream fleet. Now, despite the loving care and attention the owners give them, the twins are beginning to show their age.
To stay ahead of the crowd and with the impending arrival of Ritz Carlton entering the Boutique cruise market SeaDream has announced it is expanding its fleet. At 155 metres, and 15,600 gt, a new yacht-like passenger ship will be built by Damen which like Sea Dream is a family owned business.
To be built to ice class Polar 6 the new ship will be completely constructed and outfitted, including the interior, at Damen’s Mangalia shipyard. Construction will start in October this year. The new ship will enter service in 2021. SeaDream Innovation will join the SeaDream fleet and continue the tradition of excellence set by its predecessors.
She will navigate the waters all seven continents in its first year. She will visit over 200 ports in 49 countries. Guests will explore remote and unusual destinations, including Svalbard, the Northwest Passage, Antarctica, the fjords of Norway, Japan, New Zealand, the Fiji Islands and the Great Barrier Reef.
With 110 staterooms, SeaDream Innovation will offer all-inclusive vacations with a one-to-one guest to crew ratio. Combining innovation with elegant comfort, all spaces and facilities have been designed to elevate the guest experience at sea, including three marinas and outdoor dining.
