Set Sail: Private Yacht Experiences & Luxury Boat Trips

From Alaska to the Caribbean and Antarctica, here are six unique luxury boat experiences for every seafarer.

See (or sea) the world from another perspective as you explore Alaska, New England, the Caribbean and beyond aboard a luxury cruise ship or your own private yacht. Here, we share the Club’s various sea voyages for your upcoming on-the-water adventures.

The World

Combine the luxury of a private yacht with an extravagant residential suite and you’ve got The World. With 165 residences, The World is the largest luxury residential cruise ship on the planet—yet 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, activities on-board include tennis, a spa, wellness offerings, culinary experiences, with rare journeys and expeditions at every stop. The ship circumnavigates the globe every two years while making stops in iconic locations in Europe, the Caribbean, Australia, and Southeast Asia.

Antarctica for the New Year

From December 29, 2022, through January 9, 2023, set sail to Antarctica on the new National Geographic Resolution. This ice-class vessel will take 125 Members (along with undersea specialists, local naturalists, and a National Geographic photographer) throughout Antarctica’s most pristine sights. On this Journey, you will enjoy brisk Zodiac tours among icebergs, glacier hikes to see penguin colonies, and kayaking among whales. Onboard there is a spa, chef, and observation lounge. Ring in a New Year unlike any other as you get a front-row seat to the most untouched continent on the globe.

Yachting in the Virgin Islands and the Bahamas

Spend time with family aboard your private yacht as you sail around the Virgin Islands and Bahamas. Book an eight-day, seven-night trip to one of these Caribbean locales where you can enjoy crystal clear waters, white-sand beaches, fresh local seafood, and water activities.

The Virgin Islands have so much to explore and offer some of the best snorkeling, diving, hiking, and boating you can get in the Caribbean. This collection of islands is home to beautiful national parks on St. John and Peter Island and has a diverse range of native flora and fauna. Your journey takes place aboard a 120-foot Broward yacht as you navigate the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, replete with opportunities to drop anchor and spend days shopping at various boutiques, drinking rum punch, or bronzing on a remote beach. Plus, you’ll never have to spend a moment cooking—your luxury yacht services include a private chef who will prepare every meal.

The Bahamas is also a fantastic place to island-hop, especially from the comfort of a private yacht. For this expedition, you’ll enjoy 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 beautiful display of marine life. There are few places with beaches as white or water as blue as the Bahamas. 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.

Alaskan Cruise

Sailing with Seabourn is one of the most luxurious cruising experiences available. Seabourn ships are known for their well-appointed guest rooms, spa services, and gourmet cuisine. In July 2022, 450 Club Members will embark on a nine-day voyage across Alaska on the Seabourn Odyssey. On this journey, Members will visit the remote Sitka National Park, salmon fish, whale watch, kayak, go ocean rafting, and zip line. Back on the ship, expect champagne toasts, fresh cuisine, scenic cruises, and more.
