Imagine standing at the bow of an exclusive yacht with your new husband, a glass of champagne in hand and the sun setting over the sapphire Mediterranean sea. This might sound like a scene from a film, but it could become a reality for the lucky winner of our exclusive competition, who will spend seven nights on the beautiful SeaDream II travelling from Croatia to Greece.
The SeaDream II is no ordinary boat. The experience has been described as “yachting, not cruising”, and everything has been designed to make you feel like you’re on your own private vessel. There are only 56 gorgeously appointed rooms, with 95 crew members on hand to cater to your every need and provide a highly personal service. It might be bijou in boat terms, but it’s perfectly formed with a tempting al fresco pool on the deck with 360° sea views, a gym, spa, two bars, two restaurants and even a golf simulator.
Take to the water
It would be tempting to spend your days lounging on one of the Balinese day beds as the yacht glides through the sea, but that would mean missing out on the many exciting water sports on offer. The yacht has its own marina, so paddleboards, wave runners and kayaks can be launched directly from the boat. There are mountain bikes on board, too, so you can discover pretty local ports and villages, such as Hydra and Mykonos, throughout the trip.
After days spent exploring both land and sea, you’ll want to slow the pace down with a trip to the yacht’s spa, the only Thai-certified one at sea. Enjoy treatments in the private open-air massage area and join in daily yoga sessions on the deck or on the white sandy beaches. SeaDream is known for its award-winning cuisine, too, so you can end each day of your honeymoon in indulgent style with a daily changing gourmet menu and perfectly paired wines.
