Advice on Chartering Whole Boats    

Advantages: On a chartered boat you have complete control over the utilization of all the public areas, activities and entertainment. The ship is yours, without any conflicts from other passengers or other activities. You can arrange whatever you want, tailoring programs for any interest. 

Corporate Ship Charter: Many corporations are starting to use ships for executive retreats and meetings. You have no distractions, just bonding with company companions, being inspired by the sea, and being able to think with a clear head away from suits, ties, and a sterile hotel atmosphere. You can even combine cruises with wine seminars, golf excursions, or other specialized interests.

Tips on Ship Charters: Almost all ships require a substantial deposit up front so be certain of your intent before you sign a contract. Even though you may not fill the ship to its full capacity, the price will be based on the entire capacity of the vessel. Try to charter a ship that is positioned in the area where you want to be and with an itinerary that you like. If you ask for a customized itinerary there may be additional port charges, or the ship may have to "dead head" from its home port to the new destination and you will have to pay for the days of repositioning even if no passengers are on board.  Make arrangements as early as possible, preferably a year ahead.
