Of course, we only get married once (hopefully), so this is a very special time in a person’s life and this demands a memory that will remain etched forever in your mind. When you ask most people what their paradise holiday would be, pristine beaches, clear blue seas and tropical weather are usually at the top of the list, and by chartering a luxury yacht, you are in complete control of your floating honeymoon experience.
In case you’re wondering how you would go about starting to look at chartering a luxury yacht, Google, as always, is your best friend, and with a simple search, you can be viewing state-of-the-art luxury yachts of all shapes and sizes. As there are only two of you, the smallest vessel would be ideal, and with a crew of 2-3, you and your new bride will be waited on hand and foot, and anytime you decide to drop anchor and sample the ambience, you are the boss when you charter a yacht. One of the most popular routes would be a catamaran charter in Thailand, which includes the breath-taking Andaman Sea, a pristine tropical paradise with so many wonderful places that are unseen by tourists.
Planning your Route
The skipper would have intimate knowledge of the waters off Phuket and can make a few recommendations, which isn’t set in stone and whenever you feel the urge to move on, simply say the word and you are on your way. Romantic sunsets around the Phi Phi Islands will quite literally take your breath away, and if you are into marine life and like to snorkel, you can swim with Whale Sharks and play with Bottle-Nose Dolphins, which is an amazing experience. The boat will be stocked with your favourite foods and, of course, the bar is always open for your favourite cocktail and should you wish to spend the evening ashore at one of the many discos on Patong Beach in Phuket, the yacht can be moored for the evening and the crew always have things to do.
Check out the Testimonials
When looking at a yacht charter website, pay attention to the client reviews, as they give you a clear indication of what to expect, and the more positive reviews you read, the happier you will be. Ideally, a charter crew would be very customer focused and would do whatever it takes to make their clients happy, and a friendly ‘can do’ attitude goes a long way. To crew a charter yacht, it takes a special combination of skills and an experienced crew would go out of their way to make their guests relaxed.
As soon as you have confirmed the wedding date, you should get in touch with yacht chartering firms, especially if you are planning a high season wedding, as many people love to take a holiday on a luxury yacht. A Google search will give you a list of yacht chartering companies, and by choosing an established operator, you can be sure of a smooth experience. The charter company would help you to tailor the honeymoon in advance, and when you and your partner arrive at the vessel, everything is prepared and you can raise the anchor and head off into the beautiful Andaman Sea to begin the honeymoon of your dreams.
This is one of the big draws with luxury yacht charter, having the ability to visit many of the amazing tropical islands that are not on the tourist trail, and there are still many unspoilt areas where you can relax and take in the spectacular views. If you do a little online research, you can find out about the small and uninhabited tropical islands that are hidden in the Andaman Sea, or you could explore the thousands of Indonesian islands. While you might have a schedule and route, you can make changes at any time, as you are chartering the vessel and the skipper looks to you for instructions.
Exploring the Marine Life
There’s a lot more to a floating holiday than simply lounging on a sun deck and your skipper knows all the best places for a diverse range of marine species and can accommodate you regarding observing marine life in its natural habitat. There are spectacular reefs where you can snorkel and experience the diverse marine species that inhabit these pristine locations, and with an underwater camera, you can capture unforgettable memories forever.
Whether you are planning a few days or a couple of weeks, chartering a luxury yacht offers you a high level of comfort as you explore pristine islands and coastlines, and you are the boss, you go where you like. Search online for a yacht charter firm and start the process of planning the perfect floating honeymoon and you certainly won’t regret it.
