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.
Advantages of Small Ships and River Charters
- Healthy voyages with easy social distancing, fresh air, and ample space
- More personalized service with a higher staff-to-guest ratio
- Access to smaller, more exotic ports that seem more exclusive
- Fresh, often locally-sourced food cooked to order
- Relaxed, unstructured lifestyle – outstanding camaraderie
- No lines. Speedy embarkation and disembarkation
- Meetings on American-flagged ships in US waters can have tax advantages
River Cruises: New Ships, More Inclusive
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 100-200 passengers) makes them a great charter option.
Newly designed ships are meeting the growing demand for premium river travel. Some offer complimentary Wi-Fi, beer and wine with meals, and authentic experiences ashore; plus innovative balcony staterooms and suites designed to bring guests closer to passing scenery.
Worldwide River Destinations
In addition to popular European river destinations like the Rhine and Danube, river vessels traverse more exotic or close-to-home rivers and waterways, including:
- Europe: Douro River, Russian Waterways
- Asia: Rivers of China, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Myanmar
- South America: Amazon River
- Egypt: Nile River
- North America: Pacific NW & Alaska, New England, Mississippi River
