Go Ahead, Sea The World

Combine the luxury of a private yacht with an extravagant suite and you’ve got The World. With 165 residences, it's the largest luxury residential cruise ship on the planet—yet it still manages to feel intimate. The Club’s two-bedroom residences are complete with state-of-the-art furnishings, gourmet kitchens, and comfortable living spaces. Like a five-star hotel on water, on-board activities include tennis, a spa, wellness offerings, culinary experiences, and rare journeys and expeditions at every stop. The ship circumnavigates the globe every two years, making stops in iconic locations throughout Europe, the Caribbean, Australia, and Southeast Asia.

Experience Antarctica for the New Year

Want to ring in the New Year in a truly epic way? From December 29, 2022, to January 9, 2023, you can have a front row seat to the most untouched continent on the globe (AKA Antarctica) aboard the National Graphic Resolution. This ice-class vessel will take 125 Members (along with undersea specialists, local naturalists, and a National Geographic photographer) through Antarctica’s most pristine sights. Think of it as the ultimate cold plunge; experience an immersion in all that makes this part of the globe so incredibly special, from brisk Zodiac tours among icebergs to glacier hikes to see penguin colonies to kayaking among whales. Onboard there's a spa, a chef, and an observation lounge - the perfect place to sip a glass of champagne while counting down the seconds to 2023.

Cruise The Caribbean by Private Yacht

There are few vacations more quintessentially luxurious than a week aboard a private yacht in the Caribbean. Book an eight-day, seven-night trip with the fam to the Virgin Island and Bahamas to enjoy crystal clear waters, white-sand beaches, fresh local seafood, and water activities (plus plenty of relaxing).

The Virgin Islands offer some of the best snorkeling, diving, hiking, and boating you can get in the Caribbean, along with beautiful national parks on St. John and Peter Island that sea and land-lovers, alike, will appreciate. The journey takes place aboard a 120-foot Broward yacht, and navigates the U.S. and British Virgin Islands - with opportunities to drop anchor and do some essential shopping at local boutiques, drink rum punch at local restaurants, or bronze your body on remote beaches. And parents, rejoice: you’ll never have to spend a moment cooking—your luxury yacht services include a private chef to prepare every meal.

The Bahamas is fantastic for to island-hopping, especially from the comfort of a private yacht (specifically a 108-foot custom Broward yacht called Double Down). Made up of more than 700 islands, the Bahamas is known for its sublime boating conditions and impressive marine life. There are few places with beaches as white or water as blue. Hiking, swimming, water sports, shopping, and snorkeling are just a few of the activities available here—plus several five-star resorts to stop at for lunches, shopping, and spa treatments. Don’t miss Rachel Falls, Staniel Cay, Thunderball Grotto, and East Beach for outdoor pursuits.
