SEA DREAM II was built by STX Finland at Helsinki. The vessel is in SeaDream Yacht Club’s fleet since 2001 with her fleetmates are the sistership SEA DREAM I (1984) and the new build mega-yacht SEADREAM INNOVATION which is expected to start sailing from 2021.
The cruise ship is company’s second all-inclusive yacht, with sistership SEA DREAM I. Built in 1985 and chartered as SEA GODDESS II to Sea Goddess Cruises (between 1984-1998), as SEABOURN GODDESS II to Cunard and Seabourn (between 1999 and 2001) and operated under her current name by the shipowner since 2001.
SEADREAM II cruises in the Mediterranean during summer which includes Valletta, Malta and Gozo by anchoring between Gozo and Comino offering superb views for the passengers aboard with a considerable number of passengers as well as some of the crew taking the opportunity to tour Gozo for the day disembarking from the ship by lifeboats taking them ashore to the awaiting luxury coaches.
SEA DREAM II passenger capacity is only 112 guests making it perfect for cruise ship charters, that usually serve corporate business meetings, celebrities’ anniversaries at sea, etc. On such deals, the cruise itinerary route for the yacht’s charter is determined by the booking party. While departure and call port times are generally pre-set, the ship’s Captain can modify yacht’s cruise schedule and adjust those times (even seaports) along the route.
