Families afloat – happy luxury charters with little guests
Yacht charter vacations have become increasingly popular with extended families and friends, involving multi-generational groups for special occasions or just to explore the world, savour the precious and fleeting moments of childhood and create memories that last several lifetimes!
Travelling with children and infants can be challenging – there is the extra luggage, special meals and favourite toys to remember, as well as entertaining the troops once you reach your destination! Art galleries and 5-star dining don't hold their attention for long, and their sleeping and feeding schedules tend to dictate yours. But a luxury charter vacation caters to the whim and requirements of every guest, including the very young.
The ability to visit multiple destinations without the inconvenience of moving people and their possessions from one hotel to the next means you can incorporate everyone's interests into one itinerary.
And as for quality time, there's nothing nicer than having your private charter yacht as a base for spending time together as you pass the amazing panoramas of islands and coastlines, sharing meals, a dip in the sea, then seeking a quiet spot onboard to read, indulge in a beauty treatment, a brisk workout or a nap!
The charter experts at Luxury Charter Group take into consideration your family and your preferences and can select a number of charter yachts that suit families with small children and babies – crews who go that extra mile to entertain and include them, the pace of the itinerary, the choice of destination and activities, as well as the cuisine onboard and facilities to ensure the younger set are safe, comfortable and perfectly pampered, just like their parents!
Depending on the size and configuration of the charter yacht, nanny quarters, kids' rooms with bunks or full-size beds, and even dedicated playrooms may be available, assuring parents their children are snug and entertained. Large catamarans are ideal for families as they boast wide beam designs with ample living space, deck areas and hull accommodation on either side for privacy while maintaining proximity.
It's important to choose a charter yacht whose crew who are confident and capable of catering to children, whether that be as watchful guides onboard, onshore and during watersports.
The calibre and skillset of the crew is crucial to your charter experience, so choosing the right charter yacht will ensure your vacation runs smoothly and with plenty of fun for all! Charter crews who are welcoming to children onboard are known to organize kid-themed events onboard such as movie nights, learning how to sail, SUP or snorkel, and onshore, picnics, games and other activities.
Chefs are able to adapt their menus to your family, so the grownups can dine on exceptional international cuisine and kids' appetites are satisfied with meals (parentally-approved of course) that suit their palates. Dietary requirements and special occasions are also accommodated with ease!
While most modern charter vessels are equipped with high-tech entertainment, wifi, movies and games, you will find that the array of toys and tenders on board charter yachts, and their charismatic crews, are enough to occupy and delight most guests, even those who are hard to separate from their devices!
