SeaDream Yacht Club celebrates island-hopping at its best

SeaDream Yacht Club’s 112-guest twin-mega yachts have spent the winter season calling on the small ports and boutique harbors of the Caribbean’s most beautiful islands. Now, as much of North America is still experiencing cold temperatures and snow, limited availability for a yachting escape is still available on Caribbean sailings. SeaDream I and SeaDream II will travel the islands through April 18 before making the crossing for their summer Mediterranean home. “The 2015 season has taken our …

Yesterday’s beach party on Jost Van Dyke was certainly a highlight for many — what fun!

ABOARD THE SEADREAM II – Yesterday was quite the day for the passengers of this ship, a day I suspect many will remember when they sign up for their next SeaDream cruise. It was the day of the beach party, the time when everyone on ship moves onshore for several hours of fun. The yacht was anchored in White Bay on the island of Jost Van Dyke and the day’s adventures for some began with an early …

Today on the SeaDream II there was a change of plan…accomplished smoothly

ABOARD THE SEADREAM II – The only major island in the British Virgin Islands that Chet and I have never been to is Anegada. It is a bit difficult to reach when you are sailing on your own charter boat, as we did several years in the past. So we were looking forward to getting there yesterday morning. However, as we arrived at our anchorage, the oceans swells were so high that Capt. Terje Willassen decided, as …

An ATV excursion on St. Bart’s from the SeaDream II

ABOARD THE SEADREAM II – Yesterday it was time to get off the ship and do something fun. So we decided to join an ATV shore excursion on the lovely French island of St. Bart’s. The cost was $179 per vehicle and we rode double. It is interesting to note that shore excursions are not selling very well this week aboard ship. I don’t know if that is the usual pattern or just this week’s group of …

Sailing on the SeaDream II is casual, extremely casual, but upscale as well

ABOARD THE SEADREAM II – SeaDream Yacht Club definitely breaks the mold in small ship cruising. Sailing on either the SeaDream I or SeaDream II is an experience unlike almost any other unless you own your own vessel. It is casual. Extremely casual. Daily wear on board is T-shirts and swimsuits for men and swimsuits and coverups for ladies. Flip-flops and big hats are de riguer. Yet, it is upscale, extremely upscale. With a staff to passenger …

Spending the night in at pirate’s castle on the island of St. Thomas

CHARLOTTE AMALIE, St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. – In days of old, pirates did indeed roam the Caribbean islands now known as the “Virgins,” the British Virgin Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and they sailed in the West Indies as well. Most of these so-called pirates were actually privateers…they were commissioned, sometimes by governments, sometimes by individuals…to intercept supply ships and steal their loot. Although the famed sailing passage in this area is called Drake’s Passage, the most …

Tomorrow we head to St. Thomas for our Caribbean adventure on the SeaDream II

Tomorrow we fly to St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. where we will board the SeaDream II on Saturday for a week’s cruise through the Virgin Islands and West Indies.

With only 56 cabins and about 100 passengers, this is a small ship — just the way we like it. Within a few days we will …

Norwegian Getaway and SeaDream, sailing the same sea, very differently

Two recent Caribbean voyages, aboard SeaDream I and Norwegian Getaway,  could not have been more different. One week, cruising aboard a 112-passenger SeaDream yacht was like being a private guest at an intimate, fashionable house party. Energetic, highly trained crew were at beck and call as we floated from small ports to anchorages off such islands as St. Barts and Isle des Saintes. One afternoon, a bartender, spurned in his attempts to pour me a drink to …
