“It’s yachting, not cruising”, John Alwyn-Jones in the Mediterranean and Atlantic on board Sea Dream I

EGT mediaTVIn my head I can hear Rod Stewart singing, “I am sailing” but I can also hear Spanish guitars and French champagne corks popping, as I sail out of Malaga, the capital of Spain’s Mediterranean Costa Del Sol … but hey, this is no dream, its real, as I am on one of the world’s most exclusive, luxury “dream” yachts, SeaDream I!

2-Yacht-Aerial-aft-598x352As cruise ships get bigger and bigger, finding a luxury small ship to experience all those very often hidden and inaccessible places you want to visit, plus with great food and service can be a challenge … but wait … do not despair … enter SeaDream Yacht Club’s SeaDream I and SeaDream II.

SeaDream I was my home for my Mediterranean and Atlantic luxury yachting sojourn, where I discovered that all your dreams can come true, and it was a relief to find among my fellow passengers, that there are still some out there cruising, or in this case “yachting”, that believe smaller is most definitely better.

SeaDream Yacht Club’s two simply gorgeous luxury yacht size vessels, described as “yachting not cruising”, are probably the closest I will ever come to experiencing the intimate luxury of yachting, the rich and famous enjoy, so enjoy it I did.

With only 110 passengers and 100 crew on SeaDream I, that is an incredible passenger to crew ratio of around 1 to 1, and even better, they say it means really great service and attention to detail, with 24hr room service at no charge, and already the service appears efficient, professional, yet very understated and unobtrusive, but also amicable, yet not familiar, with no over the top what some might say on other vessels, “gushing for tips” on this vessel.

The all-inclusive fare and no tipping has to be a real bonus, even for the more affluent, with the superb service genuinely motivated by what appears to be an all-encompassing passion from the Captain right through to every crew member, to deliver the very best experience, which suited me just fine … perfect … so, I am just going to sit back and relax!

As we sail out of Malaga on Sea Dream I, perhaps another drink at the centre of social activity, the Top of the Yacht bar is on the cards, before changing for dinner in my stateroom, which is very well equipped, with the range of staterooms, including the Owner’s, Commodore’s or Admiral Suite, to my Yacht Club Stateroom on Deck 4, which was just perfect.

Was I dreaming?

Yes, I was … Sea Dreaming that is and I can’t wait to enjoy my drifting along on Sea Dream 1 with Sea Dream Yacht Club – so join me over the coming days on my Mediterranean and Atlantic Sea Dream itinerary including Gibraltar, Portimao in Portugal, Funchal in Madeira, Gomera in the Canaries and Tenerife, also in the Canaries, by clicking on the video box below and watch out for other on location articles and videos this week and next from Sea Dream I in the Mediterranean and Atlantic
