Charter a river, expedition, or small ship for authentic destination experiences far away from the crowds.

A private charter of a small ship, mega yacht, expedition, or river cruise vessel offers a unique experience for your milestone celebration, board meeting, top-tier incentive program, or corporate retreat.

These smaller vessels generally accommodate 50 to 500 guests and have exclusive access to hidden harbors, narrow ports, and shallow waterways that larger ships cannot access.

Chartering a small ship, river cruise vessel, or expedition ship can provide several distinct advantages:

Personalized services and higher staff-to-guest ratios
Access to less-visited, exotic ports of call
Focus on authentic cultural experiences and active adventures
Fresh food cooked to order, often locally sourced
Uncrowded venues, no lines, no waiting

River ships: new and more inclusive

Newer boutique-style river vessels offer an upscale, relaxed travel experience. Most ships offer complimentary Wi-Fi, wine and beer with meals, innovative balcony suites and staterooms, and immersive shoreside experiences.
