As we stepped out of the blistering Roman sun and onto the grand yacht, a butler greeted us with a refreshing glass of champagne. We pinched ourselves in delight. This is it. This is what we’ve been dreaming about. This is SeaDream and no cruise critic could argue with the service or luxury.
We all love the feeling of being on the water. The only thing better than the fresh air blowing past you is the air of adventure that awaits. Unfortunately, unless you’re an oil tycoon or a dot com millionaire, the chances of cruising on a yacht around the Mediterranean are slim to none. And a 5,000 person cruise just isn’t our idea of a unique experience. When my mother first recommended we get on a cruise for our honeymoon, I balked. I wanted to spend time getting to know the people in different cities and immersing myself in the culture.
