Variety Cruises Fleet (7)

Variety Cruises' fleet includes casual sailing vessels, small motor yachts for charter and elegant, upscale yachts designed for more discerning travelers. The yachts are divided into two categories:

Variety Cruises: This is the designation for the larger yachts in the fleet, ranging from 22 to 36 cabins. Four of the ships, M/Y Voyager, M/Y Harmony V, M/Y Harmony G and M/Y Pegasus are motor yachts while S/C Panorama, S/C Panorama II and M/S Galileo are motor/sailing yachts. All of these yachts are distinguished by their more upscale private accommodation and spacious lounges.

Variety Yachting: Four private yachts (including one sailing ship) accommodating from eight to 12 passengers are available for charter. Some offer high-end luxury, including Jacuzzi baths and walk-in wardrobes.

Onboard

While sailing aboard the seven yachts under the Variety Cruises designation, passengers can expect attentive service, single-seating meals in elegant dining facilities, limited Internet service and swimming/sports platforms with snorkeling and kayaking equipment. Cabin appointments include flat-screen televisions, mini-fridges, individual climate control and contemporary bathrooms with shower. Deck space offers loungers in both sun and shade; there are bars and an indoor lounge for reading or relaxing.

Fellow Passengers

Passengers tend to be well-educated, well-traveled couples and singles, mostly over 55, looking for soft adventure and historical perspective. They eschew the mob-mentality of the larger lines and are seeking a more personal experience. The seven-night cruises also appeal to honeymooners and those who have not quite retired from the business world and for whom a shorter-than-usual cruise in Greece or Africa is ideal.
