Benefits of Private Yacht Charter over Major Cruise Line:

1. Privacy

On a major cruise, you have lots of company. Over 2,000 passengers on many cruises. With a private yacht charter, it can be just you and under a dozen other people, oftentimes just your friends and family. 

2. Perfect for Small Gatherings

Private yachts are ideal for small business parties, casual business meetings, romantic getaways, honeymoons, weddings, and even family vacations. 

Benefits of a Major Cruise Line over a Private Chartered Yacht

1. Cost

While you can find a private yacht charter that won't break the bank, a vacation with a major cruise line is still probably cheaper, even for an ocean-view balcony room. And, if you book early enough, you're often offered an upgrade when your cruise date nears.

2. Activities

A major cruise ship offers an incredible amount of activities, such as movies, dancing, yoga, exercise classes. Many have onboard casinos and numerous swimming pools. If you're bored reading or watching the scenery, there's always an activity scheduled.
