Frequently Asked Questions
What is private yacht charter?
Private yacht charter allows you to rent the whole boat for you and your friends. In private yacht charter, boat selection, tour schedule, food menu and tour programme are determined by your choices. Our experienced crew provides exclusive service to you & your friends. According to your group size, you can book a boat with ration (food) or without ration.
What is cabin charter?
If you are on a budget, cabin charter would suit your needs. Without needing to form a group, you can rent a cabin for one or 2 people. Cabin charter unlocks you to meet our other guests from all over the world and lets you enjoy a pleasant holiday while making new friends.
At Captain Fargo, our standard cabin charter experience is different to what is offered in the market: In order place the right people to the right boat, we ask some questions to understand your interests. This helps us to set you up for a better holiday experience.
After you’ve booked your cabin, we also provide you with a “Friendship No” which you can share with your friends & family to invite them to the same boat as you – this way you can fill up the whole boat with your people if you wish to do so (min. 12 people). If the whole boat is booked using your Friendship No, your (the person who created that Friendship No) holiday will be paid by us. Cabins are for 2 people, and 1 persons’ booking will be paid by us. Isn’t it great? Share and enjoy your free holiday!
What’s the best option for us?
If you are looking to organise your Blue Voyage the way you prefer and enjoy a more luxurious holiday, the best option for you is to “Rent A Private Boat”. This way, the whole boat will be yours.
If your group of people is not enough to rent a whole boat, or you want to socialise and make new friends, “Cabin Rental” is a better option for you. This way you can book 1 or more cabins, and cabins are for 2 people. A little reminder: You can still rent a private boat with this option. For details, please read the “What’s Friendship No?” section below.
What is Friendship No.?
After you complete your cabin rental purchase, you will be shared with a “Friendship No”. You can share this code with your friends to invite them to same boat as you. This means that you can form your own group and when there’s a minimum of 12 people who have rented cabins with the same Friendship No., the boat will be private for you and 1 person’s holiday will be paid by us.
How do you book a cabin using a Friendship No.?
The Friendship No. you’ve received from your friend should be entered in the “Search with Friendship No.” in our Homepage. After this, you will be directed to the details page where you can finish your purchase.
Why are you asking for my interests?
