SeaDream again top Berlitz boutique ships
THE Berlitz Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships has once again rated the 112-guest mega-motor-cruiser yachts SeaDream I and SeaDream II as Top Two in its 'Boutique Ships' category (50 - 250 passengers) for 2013.
The Berlitz Guide, now in its 28th year, is researched and written by Douglas Ward, the world's top authority on cruising and cruise ships. He reviewed 284 cruise ships for the 2013 Guide, and out of a possible 2000 points gave SeaDream II 1,788 points and SeaDream I 1,786 points.
The hard-hitting reviews take into account 400 separate items based on personal cruises, visits and re-visits to ships, as well as observations and comments from Ward's team of ship inspectors.
Since SeaDream's founding in 2001, it has been honoured annually by the Berlitz Guide, with its twin SeaDream I and SeaDream II being described as "Ultimately Exclusive Boutique Vessels", and named as tops in Berlitz' Five Star Club where they are listed as the "Crème de La Crème".
SeaDream President, Bob Lepisto said: "We are honoured to have been so highly recognized once again in this world-renowned guide. We thank Douglas Ward and his publishers and I add my sincere thanks to our crew of true onboard professionals, along with those in our offices around the world who have also contributed to our continued success".
SeaDream Yacht Club was founded in 2001 and has brought a refreshing change to the world of ultra-luxury holidays at sea. The elegant informality of the yachts sits comfortably with state-of-the art facilities, discreet, personal service and world class cuisine – and SeaDream is the only cruise operator to be a member of the Thai Spa Association
Mr Lepisto said: "Yachting is about enjoying an unstructured lifestyle – dropping anchor offshore rather than tying up alongside, staying in port until well after mid-night, and voyaging to places where traditional cruise ships just cannot sail."
SeaDream's itineraries include the Caribbean, Costa Rica, the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and the Amazon.
