JeanneauPrestige 440 Sport

We booked yacht for the day, and sailed across Mallorca with our family and friends. This is my second time with Yachtcharterbook and we all had a great day. Our crew helped make the day special. They was really helpful and friendly. We stopped at a gorgeous beach, and enjoyed a delicious spanish meal in a restaurant. Lots of time to swim, walk, snooze and also to have some fun on the standup paddle boards. Sailing back to port was really relaxing - most of us were on the front deck, taking in the view with a refreshing cold beer. Looking forward to our next trip with yacht charter in Mallorca.
We had a real mix of ages in our group - grandparents in their 70's, and little kids aged 3, 4 and 7.

We did two weeks East Peloponnese flotilla and it could not be better. Our lead crew Jackie and Georgia were very professional and knowledgeable, and took care of everything and everyone. They made sure that everyone was happy and had perfect flotilla holidays. We always had smooth route planning, best moorings and group dinners.

Cuba is indeed home to sailors, tourists, visitors and everyone alike. The country lies at the border of the tropics, therefore has two seasons; comprising of the relatively drier and cooler season from November to April, and the relatively warmer and more humid season between May and October; which has dry and particularly hot stretches in July and August.

Another stunning Cuban city to visit is Cienfuegos; this is one of Cuba’s largest and most prosperous cities. Known for entertainment, relaxation and fun, the city boasts of rich Cuban culture. It is also a nerve center for shopping activities. You may also decide to charter a yacht from Cienfuegos on Cuba’s south coast and explore this beautiful and developing cruising ground.

You'd also have the opportunity to see and buy their reasonably priced, nice-fragrant cigars directly from the factory, but which can only be taken back in limited quantities!  Furthermore, enjoying lots of salsa band music and dances during your vacation here can be both entertaining, and rewarding.
 
If walking or strolling around aint really your style, no worries! One of the interesting things about spending a yacht charter vacation at Cuba is the plenty of separate, spacious decking for sunbathing, soaking in a hot tub, having a cocktail or two while reading your favourite novel, as well as for sumptuous dining. Many luxury yachts have their own private theatres where you can watch a blockbuster movie on a screen at your own convenience. Crew members on most yacht do their best to provide guests with a five star hospitality service on mega yacht charters. Even more interesting is the fact that many vessels now offer standard professional relaxation services, on board, like having their own beauticians, masseurs and even diving instructors all for your comfort and maximum pleasure. 
 
There just never seems to be an end to the fun, fascinating sights and all, on the charming Island. If you still got time to spare, ensure you sail for the Varadero region; one of the well-known tourist areas in Cuba. It has pristine beaches, clear waters and the island's only 18-hole golf course - the Villa Du Point Golf Course. Other places include the Bellamar Caves and Parque Josone, a funfair park great for the kids, giving them the lifetime opportunity to swim with dolphins. You might also want to try something a little different during your Cuban yacht charter vacation - the deep-sea fishing; you might just be fortunate to catch different kinds of marlin!
