ForbesLife Travel Magazine recently named Cedrim Yacht as the best luxury level small cabin ship cruise line of 2015.
The year has barely begun, and this small cruise company has already stolen the prize. It is small size it is comfortable for many tourists, and the company does not sell you lack of your experience. With an upgraded and exceptionally-professional crew, she wants to take and keep the prize for years to come.
We assume there were a lot of contenders and a lot of other high-quality small cruise lines operating there, but here are five good reasons why a CDrim yacht is one of the best.
1. Sidrium takes you to places where large cruise ships cannot go.
An amazing cabin ship cruise
For Sidrim’s Caribbean trips, you go to and take off from the much used airport at St. Thomas. You visit popular places like Anguilla and Virgin Gorda, but you also get a taste of some of the smaller ports that are only accessible to smaller ships. This makes the experience more unique, and you will be amazed at how much it is needed for less-traveled ports. Offer
You will anchor in creepy small coves from which none of the larger cruise ships can safely approach. You will visit small bays and small islands that few people keep an eye on. It almost feels like a private trip.
No wonder Sidream’s motto is: “It’s not cruising, it’s yachting.” On Sea Dream, you’ll have good dreams at night – and live it the next day.
2. On-board cuisine ranks as Truly Gourmet.
Some cruise ships only force you to wait in long buffet lines because the supply of shrimp, which was not so special to begin with, was exhausted by the person in front of you in that line.
However, there is no need to worry; There are many more delicious recipes to choose from. Indeed, the CDream Yacht gives you a totally different experience. At the beginning of each morning the friendly waiting staff brings your coffee for you and greets you by name. You’ll get to know them better during the trip – or not, if you choose to keep to yourself.
The menu is like a gourmet restaurant, and the presentation is done with flair. A long list of lobster, steak and delicious dishes are offered every day. One aspect of SeaDream’s dining experience is also “top-end” in another sense. The Topside Restaurant – real name – is located on the roof of the ship. From there, you can get wonderful views of your surroundings, or even dine under the starlight sky.
3. The on-board bar is second to none
The full-service bar, including fine wines and cocktails, is part of the ship’s infrastructure. The barroom is just as exquisitely designed as it is well stocked, and no one will be disappointed. The ship also has many other facilities like mini casino, health spa, library etc.
4. SeaDream staff is literally waiting on your hands and feet.
The 95 crew members are waiting on only 56 couples, which is about a one-to-one ratio, you get more staff attention than most cruise ships. They are always ready to help you. They will also take you to shore for walks, meals, shopping or other walks.
They also host a traditional beach party on White Bay at Jost Van Dyke. There you can swim in the warm Caribbean waters, do barbecue, feast, water sports, kayak and much more. On the other hand, you prefer to rest in your hammock just under a shady palm tree.
5. The Sydrome is smaller and more intimate than most cruise ships
Most cruise ships are completely packed with passengers, incredibly noisy and very “public”. With SeaDream, everything is small scale, making it easy to learn the names of fellow passengers and really make some friends.
While the cruise ship cabin is not too big, it is cozy and quite adequate. You may not want to stay in this small room all day, but it gives more reason to enjoy the ship and its surroundings. And that is, finally, the beginning of why you came on this cruise.
