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.

SeaDream Mega-Yacht Charter

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.

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

Avalon River Cruise in Europe

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 and Asia as well as North America. 

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.
