Yacht Charters vs. Cruise Ship

Yacht charters vs cruise ship The MooringsWe love cruise ships – of all types and sizes -and so do our clients. But here’s a secret: Big Cruise Ships are not the only choice for corporate planners who want to take their attendees to sea.

Why not consider yacht charters? The Moorings Yacht charters are a unique alternative for groups of up to 190, offering the ultimate freedom, flexibility, and privacy in a class all their own. To illustrate, The Moorings created a fun infographic that compares what you get for $2,300 per person on their yacht charters compared to a cruise ship.

For example: On The Moorings yacht charter, you’ll be treated to an all-inclusive and highly personalized voyage complete with your very own captain and gourmet chef. On a cruise ship? Not so much.
