After lunch, travel across the Tiber River to the Vatican City. Visit the Vatican Museums, part of the Papal Residence which is estimated to contain 1400 rooms, chapels and galleries. The Museums contain an extraordinarily rich collection of precious arts, maps, sculptures and antiquities but surely the most breath-taking masterpiece is Michelangelo's frescoed ceiling in the Sistine Chapel. At the centre of the Vatican lies the vast Basilica of St. Paul, the world’s largest church where the colourfully dressed Swiss Guard can be found. The present Cathedral is a beautiful mix of Renaissance and Baroque architecture, formed under the hands of masters such as Michelangelo.

Delphi is by common consent the most spectacularly beautiful ancient site in Greece and the one, which, even to the uninitiated, most vividly evokes the Classical Past.  In antiquity Delphi was regarded as the centre of the world (omphalos of the earth) and to this, and its oracle, the place owed its prestige, which extended far beyond the Greek world.  

Our visit to Delphi is divided into three parts: the Sanctuary of Apollo with the Stadion; the Castalian spring and the Sanctuary of Athena at Marmaria (from above as it is a steep ragged climb to access it); and the Museum.

Enjoy lunch at a traditional local restaurant.  En route to Athens, there will be a short stop at the picturesque mountain village of Arachova. The village is famous for its attractive hand-woven carpets and rugs as well as for its wine and cheese.

It is in the smallest of details that the soul feels pampered. It is SeaDream's attention to the smallest of details that makes the cuisine aboard SeaDream a gastronomical treat. Indulge with selections like lobster, filet mignon, and chocolate soufflé. Should you prefer vegetarian, gluten-free, or raw foods; the choice is all yours.

Topside Restaurant is the perfect place to enjoy a late breakfast, casual lunch, or a gourmet dining experience. It is the perfect venue to enjoy SeaDream's cuisine, yet not miss a moment of your destination.

Dinner may also be served in the elegantly appointed Dining Salon. The finest Belgian linen, Porsgrund porcelain, and Hadeland Crystal are the perfect backdrop to the impeccably presented cusine. Guests enjoy open seating for all meals.

There is also 24-hour room service that features light, healthful offerings.

Finally, a wide selection of Canapes and Caviar are served in the Main Lounge, and fresh-cut sandwiches may be found at the Top of the Yacht Bar and by the swimming pool.

Balinese Sun Beds
Take time to watch the world go by on a Signature Balinese Dream Bed. These specially designed beds are the perfect place to catch the views, read a book, and sip your favorite beverage. Select a cozy corner of the yacht and take that little cat nap you have missed all year. These highly popular, double sun beds are raised above the sightline of the yacht's railings to provide unobstructed views. Large umbrellas can provide shade when desired. Guests sunbathe, read, look out to sea, or just snooze.
Piano Bar and Casino
The Piano Bar is a relaxed lounge area where one may enjoy an after dinner cocktail and request a favorite tune from the piano player. Feel free to sing-along, or practice your gambling moves in the nearby Casino.
Caviar and Champagne Splash
A favorite among all guests! Signature Champagne and Caviar Splash™, featured during Caribbean voyages, is a true celebration of the yachting lifestyle as it exemplifies "Casual Perfection." A toast to crew and guest alike - to the good times shared and to meeting aboard again soon. A gourmet barbecue served on bone chine on a sandy white beach is a celebration of the yachting experience in every delicious decadent bite. In lieu of a sandy beach, the celebration is held poolside. At the sound of the yacht's horn... Start the music, let the bubbles flow, and enjoy a bite of caviar. Tomorrow can wait.
Flexible Schedules and Itineraries
Basically, SeaDream I and II sail on scheduled itineraries. Nevertheless, although SeaDream yachts depart their first port of call and arrive at their last port of call as scheduled, arrivals and departures at intermediate ports are not necessarily, cast in stone. SeaDream's Captains have the authority to adjust for local opportunities. SeaDream's yachts can make unscheduled calls at small ports to visit a local fish market, for example, or remain longer than scheduled in a secluded bay so guests can enjoy a few more hours of water sports.
Golf Simulator
Professional Golf Simulator: Select from 30 world renowned golf courses and enjoy them in air-conditioned comfort. Equipped with his and hers clubs, a seating area, and in lieu of a caddy. A bartender from the Top of the Yacht Bar is available to ensure you remain hydrated.
Library
An elegant library, cozy and quiet, offers a large selection of books ranging from the classics to bestsellers. Magazines, newspapers, board games and computers with internet connections, are also available 24 hours a day.
Main Salon - Theater
SeaDream's Main Salon on deck 3 is where SeaDream welcomes guests during embarkation with champagne and caviar. This facility is also enjoyed by guests for pre dinner cocktails on some evenings, for dancing, for movie presentations as well as to just relax and listen to the pianist.
No Tux for Guys, No Gala Gowns for Gals
The SeaDream yachting experience is a casual affair. There is no formal dress code. When asked about what SeaDream's guests wear during the day or in the evening, they always respond by using the phrase "Resort Casual"--- sportswear for the activity of your choice, easy to wear and comfortable attire for shore-side visits.
Officers and Crew Lead Guests on Personal Off-Ship Experiences
Guests may have the chance to go snorkeling with the Captain in an area he knows well and enjoys. The Activities Director might lead guests on a shore-side hike that he has uncovered on a previous visit. Guests may also want to join SeaDream's Chef for a visit to his favorite patisserie or to a fine fish market where he plans to select some delicacies to put on the menu that evening. There is no cost for these crew-led opportunities.
Overnighting in Key Ports
Unlike Cruise Ships that usually arrive at ports of call in the early morning and depart in the evening of the same day, SeaDream yachts overnight at many ports of call. Here are a few examples: One port in the Caribbean where SeaDream overnights is Gustavia on the French island, St. Barts. When SeaDream sails in the Mediterranean, they frequently overnight at the French Riviera port of St. Tropez. The point is the action does not even get started in ports such as these until late in the evening and SeaDream has found that its guests are active people who do not want to miss anything.
SeaDream Boutique
The Boutique is open when at sea to allow guests to purchase duty free. It offers fine gifts of international name brands, sports and yacht-wear, both with and without SeaDream logos, and necessary personal items guests may have neglected to bring with them.
Water Sports Marina
SeaDream's Marina is equipped with all of the water sports equipment required for a proper yachtsman's holiday, including wave runners, personal kayaks and sailboats, snorkel gear, a floating island, and more. With a minimum of three Marina Days on your holiday, you will be able to play with them all. Each yacht features a large water sports Marina that is lowered from the stern in secluded, clear bays and coves. This, of course, is offered weather permitting and with port authorization.
