Oh the joys of a chartered cruise. Your own floating hotel, chef, wait staff catering to your every need and the freedom to weigh anchor in the most scenic and instagrammable locations. The sheer rejuvenating pleasure of sailing the ocean cannot be underestimated, as anyone who has holidayed on a superyacht will attest to. While we are privileged to manage an exceptional collection of yachts and crews when they are based at Hamilton Island, this year we’re sharing other ways you can get onboard these floating palaces.
One of the most appealing features of cruising is the sense of adventure it gives you, and DE LISLE is renowned for providing unique experiences. If you enjoy discovering new destinations this is the crew, and the vessel, to take you there. In 2023 you’ll find DE LISLE III, and her long-standing crew led by Captain Dan Farell, introducing guests to the tropical paradise surrounding Fiji.
