Looking for a healthy, secure way to travel with your group? An exclusive small-ship charter with new health protocols in place may be your best choice for a “social distancing” vacation, board meeting, or corporate retreat. With access to hidden harbors, narrow ports, and shallow waterways, small ships & river cruises offer unique travel destinations away from the crowds.
Several small ships, including expedition and river vessels, have already resumed sailing around the world and others are planning to relaunch later this summer or early fall 2020.
Close to home, ships carrying less than 250 passengers are returning to U.S. rivers and waterways of New England, the Pacific Northwest, the Mississippi, and Alaska.
Boutique-style river vessels offer a relaxed and upscale travel experience as they smoothly glide right into the heart of fairy tale towns and exotic cities. Their small size (typically 100-190 passengers), makes them a great charter option in Europe, Asia and Pacific.
In North America, new river boats transverse the Mississippi, Columbia and Snake rivers, and meetings onboard American-flagged ships may be tax-deductible for US citizens.
Many river cruise lines are introducing newly designed ships to meet the growing demand for premium river travel. Some offer complimentary Wi-Fi, beer and wine with meals, and immersive cultural experiences ashore; plus innovative balcony staterooms and suites designed to bring guests closer to passing scenery.
I would not know what to do without your outstanding services and contributions to our high-end client cruise programs. Each and every one of the qualifiers commented on how well executed the program was and can’t wait to sail again.”
