Private Yacht Charter: An Escape from “Luxury” Cruise Lines

Do you settle for a “good enough” wardrobe?  When you buy a new car, do you look for a vehicle that is “adequate?”  Would you choose to build a home that was “tolerable?”  Why then would you settle for a less than perfect cruise vacation?  Instead of settling for an off-the-rack cruise vacation, plan a bespoke getaway that meets your every desire.  Move away from larger, luxury cruise lines and select a private yacht charter instead.

It is the most personalized vacation, tailored to your every want and design. Choose your guests, locations, activities, menus and everything else. It is only limited by your imagination and dreams. – Marine Max Yachts

What you are about to discover is one of the best-kept international vacation secrets, the world of private yachting vacations. It’s a world where you can take the opportunity to relax, unwind, and enjoy special times with friends and family, while being pampered by a personal and professional crew onboard a private charter yacht anywhere in the world you choose…. – International Yacht Charter Group

When you charter a yacht, the terms of your cruise are up to you.  Instead of complying with the itinerary of the cruise line, you can customize your voyage to suit your interests.  Do you unexpectedly love one port on your trip?  Adjust your schedule and stay an extra day!  You are in charge of the adventure, so the decision is yours.

Many yacht charter companies staff the boat for your vacation.  This often means your trip will included the services of a gourmet chef.  Ask the chef to prepare your favorite meal or a local favorite, or to adjust all meals to suit your dietary needs.  Since the chef is cooking for only you, accommodations are easily made.

When you vacation on a larger luxury cruise line, you must choose from a set list of “excursions” allowed to passengers on the ship.  When you charter your own yacht, you can experiences as many new and exciting adventures as you can dream up.  Scuba dive with licensed instructors, taste artisan liqueurs at a port distillery, or go deep sea fishing off the stern.  Your interests are indulged when and where you would like.

Sleep to the gentle waltz of the water in the comfort of your private stateroom, and emerge each day to a new awe-inspiring seascape. Rejuvenate with a day of snorkeling over dazzling reefs gently unfolding into a breezy evening of cocktails and dining under a canopy of stars. Kayaking, fishing, shopping local markets, secluded walks on the beach—it’s all included—and yours to explore at your own pace, on your own schedule.  – Moorings
