4. Toss your to-do list.
Let someone else do all the planning for a chance.
Whether you’re chartering a yacht or cruising on your own vessel, you can take a break from orchestrating every moment of your holiday. Instead, let your yacht crew and captain delight in the details of making your every desire come true.
Prior to your trip, make sure your preference sheet is filled with all your dos and don’ts.
Be sure to include your favorite (and least favorite) foods, ideas for themed dining, parties, or excursions, and anything else they need to know in order to design the trip of your dreams.
