This month Carnival Sailing brings to Saint Lucia yet another exciting addition to its fleet – a catamaran that is leaps and bounds ahead of the competition. Enter Carnival Luxury into the mix, a state of the art catamaran that is available for private charter and shared charters.
The design of the latest boat is focused on outdoor relaxation and entertainment, complemented by spacious interior and deck. The 50-foot Lagoon catamaran is fitted with a chic interior complete with trampolines out deck and beanbags for added comfort.
It gets better. Guests are provided with a Head chef on board when chartering the upscale catamaran for half-day, whole-day, sunset cruise, or even overnight and weekends away. So don’t forget your passport as you can even sail away to other Caribbean islands.
“We’re able to provide an ultra luxury service for our clients with food and drinks packages to choose from,” General Manager of Carnival Sailing Limited Peter Byrne told the STAR. “If they wish to charter the boat for a few days and travel to other Islands but provision and cook on the boat themselves, they can even do this as well.”
He added: “It provides a service all the hotels on the island have been crying out for a long time. There aren’t any other catamarans doing this type of service in Saint Lucia.”
Carnival Luxury has arrived to service the guests and small groups that want exclusive, premium service, who will be pampered throughout the experience.
“The guests usually request to stay on the water and have their chef cook a lunch or dinner to the standards of the best restaurants on Island, their drinks chilled and poured to perfection,” Byrne said.
Carnival Luxury is decked with a 70ft. mast with large sails and there are two inboard Yamaha engines. The vessel is fully air-conditioned with four guest cabins (fully en suite). Other amenities include a spacious open-air cockpit, dining space for up to 16 persons, snorkel equipment, stand up paddle board, kayaks, dinghy tender, fishing gear and WiFi. Guests also get complimentary underwater photos.
The boat can hold up to 18 guests on a dinner cruise (which includes chefs preparing plated meals on board) and 30 guests on a cocktail cruise that comes complete with lots of mingling, and finger foods. When overnighting, a maximum of 6 guests can occupy the bedrooms.
The idea of bringing a luxurious catamaran to Saint Lucia came to GM Peter Byrne, when he travelled to other islands and saw that this kind of service seemed to be successful.
“Saint Lucia has been honeymoon destination of the year for many years and has many top quality hotels with clientele and celebrities crying out for this service,” he said. “There is a large demand for it here as well.”
He also noted that with Carnival Sailing Charters being the first to provide this kind of luxurious service, “hopefully over the next year or two we will increase our fleet of luxury boats.”
