When we receive our documents, in an elegant leather wallet, we will soon realize that we are dealing with an special company. Sometimes you will be afraid when we check cruising fares, but after getting on board, I knew that dreams can´t be measured in terms of money. Any of these two ships, are designed to make any sailing, a sublime experience. Something like travelling on a private yacht without having one.
The perfect choice was going the Greek Islands in May, when temperatures were benign, and the Aegean had a delightful light. After an overnight in the Athens Intercontinental Hotel, the day was really hot. I felt uneasy when I saw rows of people, like flocks, at the Pireo ready to boad in huge ships. ¿Is this the best way to start a vacation?. Definitely not.
I was going to get on a tiny but appealing vessel called SeaDreamII with just 100 passengers, less than 10.000 tons and a crew ready to make real our wishes. ¿boarding waiting times?. Not at SeaDream. In five minutes I was getting on board like a gente breeze. The captain welcomes and calls us by our names; at the same time two gente Thai girls, refresh our waiting time, giving us soft franganced wet towels. Afterwards, a delicious welcome buffet where caviar and champagne were a must. ¡Get used to it¡. Liters of it flowing everywhere. After ten minutes I was taken to my suite.
You won´t find any inside cabins. Just reasonable big suites, according to the ship size with all frills and facilities one may need. Splendid matresses, sublime bed cothing, marble bathrooms, all stocked with Bulgari amenities, minibar replenish according to our wishes. Of course, champagne, champagne and more champagne. Solid wooden furniture, fresh flowers, fine glass in the minibar, world atlas, a huge walk in closet with fine Egyptian cotton bathdrobe and dozens of other suite delicacies. Life can´t get any better. Individualized vacations, intimate and relaxed. I was soon going to get sticked to the company slogan. “It´s Yachiting not cruising”.
