Q – We’ve just returned from a Sea Dream Cruise that your firm booked for us – thank you very much. While on-board, the crew was telling some of us that the line is building a new ship to be called Sea Dream carrying 200 guests, twice the size of the current vessels. What can you share about this new ship?
A – Only that it does not seem to exist. No yard has announced a contract signing and there has been no announcement from the Sea Dream press people so we have to imagine this is still int he wish list category. But the Norwegian shipping family that owns Sea Dream is certainly in a position to build a new ship and current pricing models would suggest that this is a good time to order a ship that might emerge in 2019. By simply building a 200-Guest ship, Sea Dream would be doubling its capacity. The line’s current ships, Sea Dream 1 and 11, were built in 1984 and 1985 in Finland. They originally sailed as the Sea Goddess Yachts for Cunard.
With truly personalized service, excellent food, and a totally relaxed on-board style, Sea Dream has been racking up some impressive occupancy numbers as of late. Many cruisers are unaware that there is actually an inclusive cruise line whose ships carry fewer guests than the average European river boat.
