more affordable way of taking the Blue Voyage is to rent a cabin
in a pre-scheduled yacht, the duration of the voyage usually
one week. The cruises are generally operated in 20-25 meter wooden
vessels (60-80Ft), with between 5-10 classic Mediterranean style
cabins. Each cabin has an en-suite bathroom with hot & cold
a shower and a small amount of space to store luggage.
The boats usually cruise by engine and the cruising time is normally
limited to 2 or 3 hours per day. Overnight moorings
are generally made in tiny coves about 20-30 meters close to the
shore, where pine trees approach the sea. The crew consists of a
captain, a cook and one or two deckhands, all of whom are highly
experienced in their work and responsibilities. Crews' cabins are
separated from those of the passengers. Ensuring the continued comfort
of guests is their main priority.
