If you thought private yachts were the preserve of the super rich and famous, think again. Cap Maison, a boutique retreat in St Lucia, has just launched a romantic cruise for newlyweds aboard its sleek white motor launch, meaning you can follow in the wake of celebs like Kate Moss and Jamie Hince who boarded a boat for their glamorous ‘moon.
During the four-night cruise you’ll get to drift along the St Lucian coast, stopping off at beautiful Marigot Bay for lunch and capital Soufriere for dinner at a five-star hotel. Next day, the anchor is hauled and you’ll cross the sparkling Caribbean Sea to St Vincent and tiny Bequia island to explore the turtle sanctuary and sleepy fishing village. The day will draw to a close with romantic star gazing back on board before the ocean rocks you to sleep.
A lobster lunch and cocktails at legendary Basil’s Bar, where every A-lister worth their Oscar has been spotted, is the highlight of a trip to the glamorous island of Mustique. Finally, you’ll cruise around the Tobago Cays, occasionally dropping anchor to jump in the crystal clear water, snorkel and wade ashore to enjoy a picnic on a deserted beach, before sailing back to Cap Maison.
Four-night honeymoon cruise from £6230 for two, including captain, crew, mooring fees, fuel, breakfast, lunch and drinks. capmaison.com
