Advantages of a Ship Charter

An exclusive ship charter in a ‘bucket list” destination is highly motivating, and provides new life experiences that lead to outstanding guest feedback. So incentive charters are very popular. Chartering a ship (or a ship “buy out”) costs no more – and often less — than a traditional land-based venue of comparable quality, and there are additional advantages.  See FAQs
