Seadream 1 in March 2019

Recommended Posts

Hi All- Heading on Seadream 1 in March. I've been on SD2 twice but this is a first on SD1. I'm going to miss seeing the crew from SD2 but looking forward to meeting another great team. Anyone know what enhancements were made in dry dock before the TA? Also, I'm gluten free and so is the couple we are bringing with us this time. Last time we sailed there were few adjustments for GF. Has anyone sailed recently and have any feedback or advice for getting some yummy GF options? I did make comments on the online reservation form about it. Also, does anyone know if you can do the Baths at VG without doing the excursion from SD. We don't want to have to do the tour around the island afterward? Thank you!

I'm fairly recently back from 9 days on SD II in the Caribbean.  I noticed and specifically commented on the number of dinner menu items labeled as Gluten Free.  Menus should be consistent across both ships so you should have plenty of GF options.

 

Visiting the Baths at VG shouldn't be a problem.  The ship will stop at Spanish Town around 8 AM and you could just get off with the group going to the Baths and organize your own transportation.  Alternatively, but less conveniently, you could wait until the yacht arrives at North Sound (around 10 AM), go ashore at Leverick Bay and then organize your own transportation to the Baths and back.

 

Have a great trip!

When we were on SD2 last summer, I noticed that they added 2 USB charging ports in the rooms.  I am presuming they did this on SD1, as well.  Can anyone confirm this?  That was the only thing I noticed that was different from all previous trips (aside from the new and wonderful chef, that is).  And to second ctbjr's comment, you will not have to sacrifice your dining pleasure by eating GF. 

 

And you will see our favorite waiter, Doramas, on SD1.  Tell him his "Dad" says hello.

Thank you for feedback so far!

 

TZ-I will do that! And thanks for always being so willing to help everyone on this forum! Fun to stay in the loop between much anticipated SD trips.

Getting to the Baths in VG is easy.  There are plenty of taxis that can take you.  We ended up walking - granted it was a very long hot walk

A (reasonably reliable) friend currently on board SD I confirms that the 2 USB ports have been added in the rooms on SD I as well.

To confirm, will SD let folks off at VG to do the Baths if they are not doing the paid-for excursion? I thought they only let the paying folks get off at 8:00 a.m. while everyone else waited till arrival in North Sound to catch a taxi. We are planning to do the Baths, but have no desire to do the formal excursion as we don't want to be on an organized schedule.

I think SD relocates to Leverick Bay after dropping the people who want to do the Baths excursion. So I guess we can just ask concierge about our options. Not sure how far the taxi ride from Baths to Leverick Bay if we have to meet the ship back over there. Oh my just looked at the map. They are on opposite sides of the island from each other. I guess that's why the excursion has that long open air truck ride around the island following the Baths. I'll just have to ask on board probably.

 

Thanks cbtjr: So for the USB ports, are they near the bed or across room by the mirrors?

I have never tried to get off the ship at Spanish Town but based on my experience with Seadream I can't imagine that they wouldn't let you off the ship there even if not participating in the excursion.  I'd just confirm with the Activities person on board the ship at least a day ahead of time.
