Best Adventure Cruises

For those who prefer a more intimate experience on board, we recommend choosing one of these smaller yachts. These boats are typically romantic or speedy sailboats and modern motor yachts. With fewer people, you are more likely to get to know your fellow adventurers, as a relationship often develops between fellow travelers, guides, and crew. Travelers aboard small yachts and sailboats often comment that getting to know their fellow passengers and crew has been one of the highlights of the trip. Keep in mind, however, that these boats often have bunk beds rather than lower berths.
