This is what a day in the life of a luxury yacht looks like (PHOTOS)
Emerald Cruises has just unveiled its 2023/2024 luxury yacht collection, which got us thinking – what exactly would a day on one look like?
The the new custom-designed ships, Emerald Azzurra and Emerald Sakara, are built for just 100 passengers and offer an intimate experience and highly personalized service. With good dining room, elegant suites, and the chance at visit animated coastal cities, guests are guaranteed an unforgettable experience.
What else, this luxury adventure starts at just $650 per day, so there’s never been a better time to try the luxury yacht lifestyle for yourself. Tent ? Here’s what to expect.
Eat and drink as you please
On board the yachts you will find several dining areas, bars and a chill-out lounge to enjoy and meet friends on board.
Breakfast and lunch are served buffet style in the main restaurant, La Cucina Dining, so you can be sure there is something to satisfy all taste buds. You can also drop by the Aqua Pool Cafe for a light bite to start the day, or have a cup of freshly steamed coffee on the terrace and watch the sunrise over the glistening water.
In the evening, guests will find an exquisite dinner menu in the main restaurant, emphasizing seasonal local produce – from fresh seafood to tender racks of lamb and rich truffle risotto. All guests receive complimentary wine paired by a sommelier with their meals, so why not indulge in a crisp sauvignon blanc or rosé while you dine?
Next, head to the Amici Bar & Lounge, a contemporary and welcoming space where expert mixologists serve a wide range of craft cocktails and mocktails. Or head to the Sky Bar on deck seven and take in the panoramic view of the sunset with a drink in hand.
Ease of the day
If you’re looking to pamper your mind, body, and spirit on your cruise, head to the Elements Spa & Wellness Center to truly unwind or start your day off right. Some of the fantastic treatments available include deep tissue massages and soothing facials, all complemented using ESPA products and holistic therapies.
Treat yourself to a session in Emerald Cruise’s state-of-the-art infrared sauna, which features a modern twist on the classic that heats the body’s core temperature without the extremes, so guests can stay in and relax longer.
After that, head to the pool deck and take a dip in the infinity pool before lounging on a comfy chair to soak up the sun.
Go out and explore
Sailing to some of the most exciting destinations in the Mediterranean, Adriatic Sea, Red Sea, Caribbean and Central America, Emerald Cruise yachts offer a new adventure every day.
If it’s a day in port, you’ll want to spend most of the day soaking up what the final destination has to offer.
Both Emerald Azzurra and Emerald Sakara have been carefully designed to allow access to smaller harbors and ports, meaning guests have the chance to experience coastlines and towns they otherwise wouldn’t have access to. Savor local cuisine, sightsee or try new activities before returning to your luxurious seaside retreat.
Relax in elegance
After a long day, return to your sumptuous cabin, a comfortable sanctuary that offers all the modern amenities you expect from a boutique hotel.
All standard cabins and suites include king or twin beds with Egyptian cotton linens, en-suite bathrooms, flat-screen HDTVs, air conditioning, and free Wi-Fi. Rooms also include bathrobes and towels from Italian luxury fashion designer Missoni, as well as a range of ESPA beauty products.
More than 88% of the rooms have balconies and some suites even have a superb private terrace. Immersed in true comfort, it’s easy to sink into a serene slumber and recharge for the day ahead.
