Private Yacht Charter – Best Kept Vacation Secret

.

Cruise lines hit the pause button for cruise travel this year and with Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) voluntarily suspending U.S. operations until at least October 31st, cruise lovers are looking for alternatives to get some time on the high seas.  Vacationers are asking “What is the best vacation secret we don’t know about for traveling safely?”   The answer is a private yacht charter.  Private yachts have a controlled environment where everyone onboard is screened and sanitizing procedures are easily manageable and can be as frequent as desired.

Is It Affordable?

You may be wondering if this is really an affordable option for your vacation plans.  Many people think that a private yacht experience is only for the very wealthy and celebrities, but that is simply not true.  You can enjoy a one-week cruise on a luxury yacht with captain and private chef (and steward or stewardess in some cases) in the Caribbean for as little as $3900 per person, including meals, beverages, water toys, port charges and crew gratuities.  Compare that to a cruise on a luxury cruise line at $3740 per person for a window cabin.

Reasons Why Private Charter is Better than Cruise Ship

There are a boatload of reasons why a private charter is better than a bigger cruise ship, especially now.

  1. Itinerary and pacing of the trip

In many cases, you decide the itinerary and choose when and where you would like to go ashore.  The charter company will offer sample itineraries and then you have a lot of flexibility on the water, based on the weather and what you want to do on any given day.

  1. Ability to visit places the larger ships can’t go

Small yachts have far more flexibility to call on more remote ports or islands that can’t accommodate larger vessels and, therefore, avoid the crowds.

  1. Quality of meals and drinks

You get to choose your menu.  The chef will work with you to design a menu that works for you and your companions.  Expect super fresh food throughout the cruise.  The yacht will offer local and premium beverages.  Do you want super luxury wine or spirits to celebrate a milestone?  You may have to pay extra or you may be able to bring your own on board.

  1. Access to watersports

Certified SCUBA, stand up paddleboards, kayaks, fishing rods, knee boards, and floats can be included for your entertainment.

  1. All inclusive pricing

Food, beverages, fuel, water toys, wifi – it’s all included.  You can add crew gratuities in the total price or pay gratuities while you’re traveling based on your experience with the crew.

Social distance with your own family or friends

Food, beverages, fuel, water toys, wifi – it’s all included.  You can add crew gratuities in the total price or pay gratuities while you’re traveling based on your experience with the crew.

A private yacht charter is truly the best kept vacation secret and is perfect for our current time.  You can relax and enjoy special times with a small group of friends and family while being pampered by a professional crew.  You get to set your own pace and itinerary, eat on your own schedule, tailor the cruise to your lifestyle, and enjoy a completely unique and customized experience.
