Thanksgiving is a time devoted to family, friends, and giving thanks. But you can really amp up the entire holiday—and make it an experience of a lifetime—by booking a Caribbean yacht cruise getaway for Thanksgiving or the weeks afterward! Even at the beginning of November, there is still time, and we can make it the best vacation you’ve ever had.
The luxury travel market is saturated with advertisements for history-themed vacation opportunities. One can fly to and take guided tours at destinations you choose. Or one can take a cruise ship to explore historical sites with many other passengers. But what these travel packages do not offer is the opportunity to make your historical exploration vacation your own private dream historic vacation, customized to see exactly that which you want to see, and from the standpoint of your historic bent. With a customized historical-themed luxury yacht cruise, you can immerse yourself in an area, moving the entire time on your own private charter at your pace, with your own hotel and private Chef.
If the white sand beaches of Greece or the bustling nightlife of Nassau in the Bahamas sound appealing, start planning now for your next vacation. Before booking an airline ticket and arranging for a private car to transport you once you land, ask yourself:
Do you want the same old vacation you’ve always taken? Or would you like to experience something new?
Many of your vacations may consist of flying to a global destination and staying in a luxury hotel. It’s wonderful to know you can visit any city you want and book any entertainment you’re interested in, with very few exceptions. However, if you have never taken a private yacht vacation, you might be surprised to find out that this can be an even better option than a luxury hotel or resort vacation.
Here are some of the reasons why we think private luxury yacht charters are better than any other type of vacation!
Vacations are some of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences of our lives. We often spend a lot of time deciding on the perfect destination, and then there are the myriad of questions of where to stay, where to eat, and what we can see and do for the best vacation of our lives. And how much time and energy does this take? This is not the case with a vacation on a luxury crewed yacht charter, where your yacht is your hotel, your crew includes a chef, and daily activities evolve as your charter yacht cruises along a spectacular customized yacht charter itinerary arranged just for you.
We take care of you throughout the entire process—from selecting the best private yacht for your vacation to crafting a fully customized itinerary—and everything about the experience is focused on the most spectacular vacation for you, making things as easy as possible for you and your guests. Whether you’re thinking about planning your first or fifth luxury yacht charter vacation, take a look at our list of the ten best things about this exceptional experience. Get ready to sit back, relax, and let us take care of you every step of the way.
“Being waited on hand and foot, with the beautiful water around me, my own private chef preparing exactly what I wanted to eat and drink . . . everything I desired was right there at my fingertips. It’s the ultimate escape.”
These are actual words spoken by one of our clients after she returned from her private yacht charter vacation, and they perfectly sum up everything we aim to offer—a luxury pampered vacation. And who doesn’t want to be pampered? In fact, right now, we all need some extra TLC. So, here it is—the top ten ways to spoil yourself on a luxury yacht charter vacation. We also included our pro tips and insider information for you to start planning the vacation of a lifetime.
One of the things our clients love the most about a private yacht charter vacation is that it affords the opportunity to social distance as much or as little as you want, while offering up luxury amenities and five-star service. There is simply no better way to travel and explore the world!
A private yacht charter vacation has so much to offer any time of year as this is the ideal trip that offers the ultimate in personalization, social distancing, and (perhaps most importantly) luxury! Let’s take a closer look at why a luxury yacht charter is the best type of vacation to plan, then see exactly what awaits you onboard with an exclusive look at some of the charter yachts available in three of our favorite destinations.
One of the many benefits of a private yacht charter vacation is experiencing the wonderful local cuisine and specialties of the area in which the charter is taking place. While many of us are staying socially distant and may be hesitant to enjoy restaurant dining due to COVID, everything is full steam ahead in the yacht charter world.
Wondering how to stay safe on a yacht charter and still enjoy the regional cuisine? Your private chef will create an explosion of all of the local flavors right on board, bringing the local cuisine from land or sea to your private yacht dining table. Or your yacht crew can create a pop-up private ”restaurant” with one table just for you with private yacht crew service on a secluded beach.
Experience lovely fresh local foods that may not be available in your own at-home, local grocery store. Your chef can shop the local markets and craft a delicious meal featuring local cuisine right on board your private yacht that brings the region to life via a custom-tailored menu. Even those with special dietary restrictions or allergies can still experience the local flavors, thanks to a private onboard charter chef who can make the necessary—and delicious—accommodations.
Fine dining, casual family meals, wine pairings, and interactive dining experiences—it is all available as part of the yacht charter cuisine experience. Get ready to work up an appetite as we take a closer look at all that dining on a yacht charter has to offer in various worldwide yacht charter cruising locations. Here is a selection of some of our favorite destinations where a local culinary experience can always be a highlight of a yacht charter trip.
