My 24/7 Butler Service Experience in the MSC Yacht Club
Within an hour of boarding, I learned, first hand, why the Yacht Club is known for its outstanding personalized service. My luggage arrived at my stateroom several minutes after I did. My butler offered to help me unpack. When I opened my suitcase, I saw a week’s worth of damp, wrinkled clothes that were once pressed and carefully packed. My luggage was in and out of heavy rains since leaving NYC. All I could think about was what would I wear until I could get my clothes clean again.
The butler gathered up my clothes and headed to the laundry. Three hours later, he returned all my clothing cleaned and pressed. I was not charged for this service. He got my trip off to the best possible start!
The MSC Yacht Clubs cater to guests wanting a luxury sanctuary, and the personalized services of an exclusive private club. A “Ship within a Ship,” the Yacht Clubs give guests the best of all possible worlds. Guests cruise in the elegant style of a luxury ship, and enjoy 24/7 concierge and butler services. Yet, they are only an elevator ride away from the activities, entertainment, and night life of the larger ship.

Cruise for Your Charity’s Lifestyle Charitable Giving Program
Every time you book a cruise through Cruise for Your Charity, we make a donation to your special charity. We make the donation in your name, and you receive the tax deduction for your tax return. Donation amounts range from $50 to $1,300+. Determining the amount of your donation has 3 factors. First is the type of cruise, whether it is a standard cruise, custom cruise, or an accompanied cruise. The second factor includes the cruise line and stateroom selected, as well as the length of the cruise. Other considerations include the time of the year of the cruise, destination, amenities and excursions selected. The third factor is the number of booked staterooms. All cruise packages include taxes, port charge, fees and trip insurance.
Donations come from our advertising budget. It is our business decision to donate to charities through their donors who have a cruise lifestyle, rather than do large advertising campaigns.
Cruise Lifestyle Charitable Giving can add meaning and pleasure to your cruise vacation knowing that you are helping people served by your special charity.
I hope to see you in the MSC Yacht Club in January!
I recently took around trip Atlantic crossing on the Queen Mary 2. This was my third time on the Queen Mary 2. While I have taken a number of transatlantic cruises, this was my first Queen Mary 2 Transatlantic Crossing where the ship is the destination. I found that the Queen Mary 2 is a favorite of single women.
While many of the passengers were 65+ couples, there were a significant number of solo travelers and singles traveling in groups. They ranged in age from 40+ to 80+ years.
The Queen Mary 2 holds a 10 AM social gathering each day for solo travelers and group singles travelers. The Queen Victoria holds similar gatherings. One lady, from Australia, who was our breakfast companion, has taken world cruises every year, for the past 20 years. She is part of a group of women who have met one another through world cruising. Her cruise agent travels with the group, and hosts meet ups each day for members of the group. Queen Mary’s staff makes it their business to watch out for solo travelers. If they don’t show up for a meal, someone checks in on them to see if they are well.
The dining room managers seat solo passengers with other guests for open seating at breakfast, and lunch. At the dancing sessions there are dance partners for women and men who are solo travelers. Queen Mary 2 staff extend themselves to make single women travelers comfortable. It is easy to understand why the Queen Mary 2 is a favorite of single women.
Conversations at meal time were never boring. I came away with a greater understanding of the life styles, customs and cultures of other countries. I met unassuming people who had led, or currently lead fascinating lives.
The Queen Mary 2 is a relaxed, fun, social and interesting way to travel, especially across the North Atlantic. The Queen Mary 2 is a favorite of single women and a resort at sea!
