Crewed Charter Yachts Vs Cruise Ships
Whether you have opted to sail to the Bahamas through a cruise ship or a Bahamas sailing charter, you can be guaranteed that both means of travelling will take you to your next dream destination. However, there might be a lot of difference in your sailing experience when travelling on a charter yacht as compared to a cruise ship.
In general, your trip on a Bahamas sailing charter is likely to be a lot better than the one on a cruise ship and the reasons are below.
In a fully crewed charter yacht, you have the freedom to express your likes and dislikes in food and select a personal chef who will serve you meals according to your taste. In a cruise ship, you are required to stand in a buffet line or be seated in your place at the dinner table at an assigned time. You might also be required to finish eating between certain hours so the tables could be cleared and refilled for the next shift of guests.
Select Activities, Beaches and Destinations
You can decide on your own the activities you would like to perform on a personal yacht as opposed to a sailing cruise which has only a number of activities to offer. Moreover, you can choose to go to smaller, isolated and unique islands which you have never seen before. To go to your dream destination, you can freely ask your Bahamas sailing charter captain to take you to islands even if they are out of the way. With a cruise ship, you are most likely to be able to visit large beaches because that might be the only place to handle so many people.
You will receive a personal set of instructions whenever you are ready for your sailing, diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaking or simply any other on-water activity. In a cruise ship, you will receive mass lectures.
Since you have hired a Bahamas sailing charter, you can easily adjust the schedule according to your needs. If you are having more fun in one place, you may want to stay there a little longer or you can leave early from an island to go somewhere else even if that’s not on your list. In a cruise ship you must go exactly according to the schedule.
The costs are usually all-inclusive when you book a charter yacht, hence there will be no surprises on board or on land. Cruise ships require you to pay extra for dinning and using other amenities.
