Discover mighty waterways and secret coves on a luxury private cruise

Luxury private cruises

We are fully independent, so our only concern when choosing a private yacht or a cabin on a larger boat is what is right for you and your family. Our Destination Experts have visited these stunning boats, so after getting to know you and your family’s needs, they can advise on location and taste, as well as arrange a host of unforgettable activities and surprises once you are there.

Life on the private yachts boats and small ships we choose is about freedom and that elusive frontier feeling. It’s where iPads and smartphones are made redundant, replaced by the thrill of ever-changing scenery and the daily discovery of secret little spots.

In the polar regions, for example, we select from a variety of ships, from 12-person charters designed to navigate the ice – which can be both super luxurious or practical – up to opulent vessels for 200.

What we look for is a knowledgeable captain, a great chef, but most importantly a great guide to bring it all to life – because for any extraordinary destination to be fully felt in technicolour it needs the knowledge of a team with the perfect balance of passion, charisma, and professionalism.

With cazenove+loyd it is not just about where you stay but the experiences that go with it. The magnificent Amazon River, the mighty Mekong or the wildlife-rich Komodo Islands – we can open up the world’s most incredible waterways to you in the most inspiring way.

Adventure on the Mekong

Just to say – we loved our stay on The Eclipse. It was like staying in a comfortable house on the sea. I didn’t feel sea sick once nor did any of us.
