SeaDream top rated by Berlitz 2013
The 2013 Berlitz Guide to Cruising & Cruise Ships released last month, announced that the 112-guest mega yachts SeaDream I and SeaDream II have again achieved the top two ratings in the ‘Boutique Ships’ category (50 – 250 passengers). The Berlitz Guide, now in its 28th year, is researched and written by Douglas Ward, the world’s top authority on cruising and cruise ships. Having reviewed 284 cruise ships, Ward has named the top-rating ships for 2013, with the 10 most highly rated being officially ‘small’ or ‘boutique’. The SeaDream ships’ ratings out of a possible 2,000 points are: SeaDream II – 1,788 points and SeaDream I – 1,786 points.
