Q – We are looking forward to sailing with Sea Dream again next summer. Your recommendation really was a home run as we would hate to anticipate being on a large ship in this environment. The 50 cabin Sea Dream 1 was as close to our “Dream” cruise as we might have imagined. I understand why frequent sailors on this line refer to themselves as “Seadreamers”. We found ourselves in the small casino each evening and we are wondering how that might operate in the time of Covid. With so many people handling dice and tokens, it would seem to pose a risk. Is there a chance that the “Casino” will not operate?
A – Sea Dream has no intention of ending Casino games on its vessels. Chips and dice will, we are told, be sterilized after each use. That is indicative of the kind of small detail thinking cruise executives are working on these days. Other than a change away from buffet services, you should not feel that much has changed since your last sailing.
