It's not cruising, it's yachting. If you're thinking what is the difference? Then VIP Travel Experience has got some news for you because the difference is quite HUGE. For starters, yachting is a more intimate and service oriented luxury experience. Most yachts are small passenger ships (think 110-130 other cruisers) and a crew that provides close to a 1:1 ratio level of service. But the word "yachting" doesn't only describe size it also describes the special kind of luxury lifestyle aboard the intimate vessels. One of our favorite yacht companies is SeaDream. SeaDeam's luxurious mega-yachts are famous for their elegant informality, award-winning service, premium all-inclusive bar, and some of the most exciting itineraries out there. And when you book with VIP Travel Experience (that's us!) you'll be able to receive exclusive VIP amenities such as onboard spa credits and much more!
Smaller ports are another big difference. Yacht's have the ability to access smaller ports and navigate to destinations not easily accessible by large ship cruising. Special to SeaDream is the ability to have your itinerary include overnight stays in some of our favorite parts of the world.
Intimate ambiance is what pulls the full ultimate yachting experience all together. When it comes to pampering and taking in pure serenity yachting is able to encompass it all. No waiting in long lines for renting water-sport activity equipment instead spend that time actually on the water or lounge on SeaDream's Balinese dream beds (that are really something to write home about - they're like floating on a cloud). From the moment you step onboard you'll see the true intimate experience with the decorations of refreshing cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Once unpacked, you’ll have a choice to enjoy sun-bathing, a light meal on deck, or begin a relaxation treatment in SeaDream’s Thai-certified spa.
So now that you know what some of the biggest differences between yachting and typical cruising, we are going to highlight some of the best itineraries on SeaDream's 2 mega-yachts...
