Bora Bora Cruises Fleet (1)
Each yacht accommodates 40 passengers on six-night, seven-day voyages around four small islands in the Society Islands chain of Tahiti. Each has four passenger decks and a marina deck, which serves as a "floating dock" while the ship is at anchor in quiet waters.
About Bora Bora Cruises
Apart from their commitment to providing the most elegant and luxurious vacations possible, the family is also active in charitable endeavors and, in fact, prominently mentions its involvement with the U.S. Lili Claire Foundation (for research and treatment of Williams Syndrome, Downs Syndrome and autism) on its Web site.
The accommodations include 18 outside staterooms and two suites. Crisp, stylish, minimalist furnishings distinguish the sleeping spaces. Small but adequate in-suite bathrooms are made to feel more spacious with windows into the staterooms. Each stateroom includes air conditioning, a safe, a mini-fridge, a desk and a hair dryer. There are also flat-screen televisions and DVD players for guest use.
The two 320-square-foot Bora Bora Suites include sitting areas; two bathrooms each; Bose home theatre systems with retractable, 37-inch screens and DVD players; and private butlers to serve breakfast, either in the suite or on deck.
Public spaces include a full-service spa, a restaurant, a lounge, two bars, a sun deck, a library, covered deck areas for lounging, a hot tub, a terrace, a night-time open-air cinema and a floating dock for water play.
Although many activities are included (snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, sunset Champagne sails, music, dance and folklore shows, village visits and an excursion to a vanilla plantation, for example), there are other excursions available at additional cost. These include helicopter rides, Jet-Skiing, scuba-diving, deep-sea-fishing and off-road "island discovery" trips. Special evenings can be arranged (also at an additional charge) to stay overnight on one of the island beaches, with either dinner or breakfast served by a private butler.
All meals and snacks are included, but there's a twist: Passengers can choose to dine, "a deux," on deck -- for a romantic evening alone with meals served as though they were in the restaurant -- or have lunch served on one of the massive rattan Bali beds, scattered around the sun deck and terrace. Bora Bora Cruises is intent on providing the personalized experience that a luxury yacht holiday would suggest. With rare exception (the Champagne sails and greeting at the airport), liquor and bottled water are not included in the fare.
