» I want to bring my own drinks to drink on board.
In cabin charters, bringing drinks aboard is not allowed as a rule. However you may suggest that in your reservation application for a yacht charter.
» I want to bring my own food stuff. Will they cook it for me?
The cook on board will certainly cook it. In cabin charter tours you are not allowed to bring food with you. In the yacht charter system, you must ask before the confirmation of reservation.
» What shall I put in my baggage?
Bring swimwear, some soft and easy shoes, shoes for walking or trekking, sports wear, sun tan cosmetics, sun glasses, some thing to keep you warm against probable chilly nights and few other things that suit you. Choosing soft baggages will be useful to put in the cabins. Walking on board with shoes as not allowed on board. In cabin charters, you have to bring your own towels.
» I am a meticulous person.
So are we… That is why you’ll see that everything is kept clean and tidy throughout your journey. (We’d better do that because those vessels literally cost fortunes.) The yacht is thoroughly cleaned and inspected before you embark. The bedsheet are changed usually twice a week and the toilets are cleaned everyday. To prevent the toilets from getting blocked, materials like paper and cotton should be thrown in the dustbin nearby.
» How comfortable are the cabins?
You’ll see on the pages of each yacht that a majority of them are air conditioned. The beds are large enough to sleep confortably. Most beds are french beds ie. two people in one bed (about 2×1.4 m). Some cabins on some vessels have twin beds -two separate beds, each just less than a meter wide. The cabins are spacious with sufficient wardrobes, bedside tables and adjacent private shower and toilet. In some delux yachts you have armchairs, secretary tables, you even have your own television in your cabin. Unfortunately despite all this care for comfort and luxury, few people seem to want to go down to their beds while they can sleep on deck, undearmchairs, secretary tables, you even have your own television in your cabin. Unfortunately despite all this care for comfort and luxury, few people seem to want to go down to their beds while they can sleep on deck, under the glittering stars. As for the air-conditioners; don’t count on them too much. Their use is restricted because they are turned off at night for safety reasons and also, their use is not allowed when moored in harbours due to enviromental regulations.
» How about childeren.
If you are chartering a yacht privately, special care can be taken for the kids. On the other hand, you are not advised to bring childeren under eleven to cabin charter tours.
» How about health care?
The yachts are fully equipped with first aid kits and efficient medication against nausea (but because you psychologically get adapted to the environement, it is not much likely that you will get sea sick.) For instances when more serious medical care is needed, our coast staff is always alert for prompt interference and immediate hospitalisation if neccessary.
» What sort of water sports are possible?
Snorkel kits, wind surf and usually canoos are present on the yachts. In some of the yachts a powerful Zodiac or the like is provided for water ski against a small charge for the fuel. You’ll also find parasailing, banana and the like in some places where you’ll anchor. For scuba diving, some formalities are neccessary so if you fancy that, let us know before you come.
» May I cook my own food?
In yacht charters you may, so long as you are not obstructing any regular service.
» Can I do anything I want on board?
No, not really. For example; you are not allowed to smoke in the cabins, you may not use the boat’s communication means for your personal pleasure, you can not choose your own cabin in cabin charter tours and what more – a universal rule – you may not do anything that the captain tells you not to do.
» Can I bring pets ?
Most yachts will not permit guests to bring pets on board in order to maintain rigit cleanlines standarts. Please check with us prior to your arrival.
» Can I bring children under 12 ?
Yes, most yachts are child friendly, however the crew are busy with their assigned duties and usually are not at liberty to offer children care service. Just take into consider this.
