Ultra-Chic Weekend Getaway Courtesy of Tall Ship Cruises

Sep 4, 2008
Love the good life? Then why not imagine yourself standing at the upper deck holding that wine on one hand and the other checking out the rails of the yachts. Or perhaps checking out what the Jacuzzi on the sun deck can offer while waiting for the sun to set down? If these scenarios appeal to you and you want more, then perhaps a weekend getaway through tall ship cruises matches you. These types of cruises aren't your ordinary cruises or charters that you have taken or have experienced in the past. Cruises such as these are hosted on gargantuan ships, perhaps two to three times as high as your homes.

Just how tall is tall, when it comes to cruises like these? The ones called the supers in the market often starts at 82 feet and these supers have three to four decks. There will be ships out there that can register 148 to 163 feet tall. These types of ships are the more popular right now and the ones patronized by most cruise fans and aficionados. But things are fast changing right now, and there are new breeds of ships that can be seen working the seas and these toys registers more than 328 feet. And what do these new heights and more decks mean to the consumers and the fans of charters and cruises? This only means one thing and that's more space for fun and pleasure when out in the seas. Traditionally the mid-sized ones, those that start from 82 feet to 163 feet have three to four 'floors'. The first one is known as the lower deck, and here guests can take the plunge and test the pools of the ships. Guest cabins are also seen in these areas and often, the cabins for crews are also located here. Then there are the main decks where most activities are done when you're on a charter trip or on cruise. These decks are the location of the dining halls and other rooms. Now if you are the type of person who dislikes dining in a closed area, then the upper deck is the one for you. Check these decks when you go out for charter trips and cruises. These decks are just perfect for outdoor dining and the place to be as well if you just want to spend some quality night while enjoying your favorite drinks. Then the sun decks at the topmost portion of these tall ships.

When the yachts or the ships are more than 213 feet, then expect as well that these ships have more to offer than the regular-looking ships. One difference is that these types may carry up to five decks in all. These types of ships cost tens of millions of dollars, so expectations are surely there when it comes to amenities and features that can make any charter trips and cruises memorable. For big toys like these, then expect that these things will have a helicopter landing platform. This amenity is just perfect for high-rollers who need to do business right after the pleasures.
