Mega Yacht Cruises

Where Small is Beautiful

VARIETY CRUISES

Authentic Island-Hopping Experiences

Our fleet of 11 unique and stylish Mega yachts offer a winning formula of an informal and friendly atmosphere, great cuisine and superb island-hopping itineraries that truly explore a destination, accessing ports and marinas that are beyond the reach of large cruise ships.

Every Sailing Is An Odyssey

Our passengers love two things above all else – to be on board a vessel that gets them close-up and personal to the places they visit plus the friendly informal atmosphere on board. Not for them cabaret and casinos or shopping mall on board. They are there to enjoy the journey and visit fascinating places in like-minded company with much more time ashore to explore. They prefer to tie up right on the waterfront rather than drop anchor offshore. And who needs a swimming pool when the Captain can drop anchor in a beautiful cove, and you can simply dive into crystal clear waters from the aft swimming platform? At the heart of our philosophy is our dedication to protecting the environment and a deep appreciation of the history and culture of the places we visit – we sail in the wake of Odysseus – every sailing is an Odyssey.
