About This Ship

Cruise Ship Overview
Prototypes for an ultra-luxury yachting experience, the SeaDream Yacht Club megayachts have a history of sailing under several banners. Conceived as a Sea Goddess vessel for that long-defunct boutique cruise line, Sea Goddess II—the second ship, which launched in 1985—subsequently joined the Seabourn fleet and sailed as Seabourn Goddess II. SeaDream Yacht Club acquired her in 2002 and named her SeaDream II to launch the cruise line with her twin sister ship SeaDream I.
Although these vessels are not huge, the public rooms are quite spacious; the Main Salon and Dining Salon are large enough to comfortably seat all passengers at once. Decor is elegant in its simplicity and is surprisingly non-nautical. Instead, it's modern and sleek, utilizing the hues of the sea, sky, and sandy beaches. Oriental rugs cover polished teak floors in the reception area and in the large, sun-splashed library, where you'll find more than 1,000 books from which to choose, as well as computers to access the Internet. The library also lends movies to watch on the flat-screen TV/DVD player in your suite.
Balinese sun beds are the ideal spot to relax by day, either for sunbathing or reading beneath an umbrella. A telescope mounted at each ship's stern is handy for spotting land and other vessels at sea.
