Virginia Private Yacht Charters for New Parents

Posted by George Stevens on Thu, Aug 03, 2017 @ 03:16 PM

 

Having a baby is a joyful event, but it can also place heavy demands on your relationship. If there's ever a time when you need a break and a chance to reconnect with each other, it's when you become a new parent. See how Virginia private yacht charters can help you through this milestone in your life.

Get away and stay in touch. Most parents are anxious about leaving their precious newborn at home the first few times, but the sooner you take that step the easier it will become. It's also essential for your own personal well being and for your marriage. Of course, you can't leave town for a week, but you can find a trusted sitter and take off a few hours for a local cruise.

Take it easy. You need a vacation, but you barely have enough energy to wash your hair. When you're feeling this sleep-deprived, it's no fun comparing airline prices and packing your bags. On our Potomac River cruises, we can handle all the details for you.

Pay attention to each other. When is the last time you had a conversation about anything but your beautiful new baby? That's natural, but it's also dangerous to neglect your marriage. Being out on the water is a great way to restore your sense of being a couple.

Create family rituals. Many of our customers have such a great time that they make our cruises an annual event. We'll be delighted to see you back for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and more.

Contact us at Potomac Belle Yacht Charters. Our rates are reasonable, and we'll arrange a cruise to meet your needs.

Taking Graduation Cruises After Years of Hard Work

Posted by George Stevens on Fri, Jul 28, 2017 @ 02:56 PM

There's no doubt about the fact that the experience of going to school has changed over the years. The competition to get into a good college is now fierce for high school students. If they don't get decent scholarships and financial aid, college will be too expensive for them.

College itself has become more challenging as people try to juggle multiple responsibilities all at once in order to pay for everything and get the proper amount of work experience. The people who manage to make it to graduate school will have even more work ahead of them. If anyone deserves to be rewarded with graduation cruises from Potomac Belle Yacht Charters, it is the graduates of today. 

Graduation tends to occur during the summertime, although some people might graduate early. The summer is the perfect time to take a cruise. People who have been stuck in a classroom listening to lectures or studying will finally be able to enjoy the gorgeous summer weather from a boat. It truly represents the ultimate release. 

Graduation cruises certainly work well as graduation celebration venues. However, it goes further than that. Many people will go on cruises for their own sake. People who go on these cruises will finally be able to let go emotionally. Many individuals will be facing a new set of responsibilities after graduation. In that way, a graduation cruise will almost feel like a honeymoon of sorts, and a lot of people deserve that. 

Contact us in order to get additional information on Potomac Belle Yacht Charters graduation cruises.

Sunset Cruises Decorate Themselves

Posted by George Stevens on Thu, Jul 13, 2017 @ 05:16 PM

If you love everything about party planning except for the decorations, a sunset cruise is for you. Nature does such a great job you won't have to buy a single balloon unless you want to.

Downside of Party Decorations: We're not taking anything away from those who love picking out a theme, and keeping up with the latest trends in kid's birthday parties or wedding anniversaries. On the other hand, there are a significant number of people who love spending time with family, friends, and colleagues, eating delicious food, and listening to their favorite music. They just don’t like spending money on party decorations that wind up in the garbage a few hours later or have to be stored in their already limited closet space. They may prefer simplicity or just like saving their mental energy for other things.

Upside of Sunsets: There's no additional charge for the sunsets on any of our cruises. Nothing goes to waste. You don't have to carry anything home with you except your photographs and your memories. Speaking of photographs, savvy event planners schedule photo opportunities at dusk to get the best skyline images before nighttime events. Even if you're not interested in any media campaign, you'll enjoy seeing the waterfront at the height of its beauty, and maybe having those pictures for your own enjoyment or your company's website and annual report.

You'll always find outstanding customer service and stunning views at Potomac Belle Yacht Charters. Contact us when you're looking for a sunset cruise, business entertainment, private parties or more.

Enjoy the Warm Weather with Potomac River Boat Tours

Posted by George Stevens on Fri, Jul 07, 2017 @ 09:36 PM

 

 

Summer is here; that means the days are longer and the weather is warmer. Since the area surrounding the Potomac River actually has four distinct seasons, you'd be wise to enjoy the summer while it's still here. After all, you don't want to wait until the dreary winter has already rolled around to regret not being outside more often while it's feasible to do so.

So now that we've established the importance of appreciating the nice summer weather, it's time to talk about something fun for you to do in the great outdoors. If you live near the Potomac River, or are lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit the area, then a fun idea would be to take a Potomac River boat tour. It's a fantastic way to spend the day with the people you care about most.

Being on a private yacht charter enables you to truly be yourself while cruising on the river. Whether you're going with a group of good friends or having a family reunion on the river boat, you'll be sure to have a great time while enjoying the privacy that comes with having the entire boat to just you and your guests. That means you can let loose and even dance if you wish to do so.

Reserving our boat for your river cruise is easy. Just contact us at your earliest convenience, and we'll let you know about our boat's availability. Then you'll be all set for a fun and relaxing cruise before the end of summer.

Anniversaries Everyone Will Remember

Posted by George Stevens on Sat, Jun 24, 2017 @ 07:28 AM

 

The pressure to do something really special for an anniversary seems to increase every year. While people tend to put a lot of effort into planning their anniversaries in general, most people will want to do something particularly special for a tenth anniversary, a twentieth anniversary, or any other anniversary that could be regarded as a major milestone. 

Celebrating Major Anniversaries

Many people don't want to do the same thing each and every year for their anniversary celebrations. Even if they usually go out to dinner or to a play, they might still be interested in something more dramatic after a decade has passed. Companies like Potomac Belle Yacht Charters can help people with their anniversary celebrations. 

Anniversary Parties on a Boat

While some couples will hold large anniversary parties, it's very common for couples to celebrate their anniversaries individually. In many cases, couples will only give each other gifts and they won't get gifts from anyone else on the day. While people tend to invite a lot of guests to the initial wedding celebration, the anniversary is really just a celebration for them.

As such, a cruise is perfect for couples celebrating their anniversaries. Most people don't tend to invite a lot of guests along for a cruise. Many people consider cruises inherently romantic. Cruise journeys provide a lot of opportunities for couples to be together admiring the beautiful scenery around them. They can reflect on their lives together at the same time on an occasion that truly feels like it's just for them.

In this post, we will take a look at three different occasions for which you can experience a dinner cruise.

Fewer things are more romantic that a dinner on a beautiful boat with an unbeatable view. The fresh air, gourmet food, and atmosphere is everything that is needed to make for an unforgettably romantic evening.

The entire family can enjoy quality time together with great food, entertainment, and the privacy of an entire cruise ship!

Four Ideas for a Great Anniversary Celebration

Posted by George Stevens on Thu, May 18, 2017 @ 05:55 PM

20150711_195142.jpg


 

Whether you are coming upon your first anniversary, you have been married for 50 years, or you have another significant anniversary coming soon, you likely want it to be a special day for you and your spouse. If you are looking for a great way to celebrate your anniversary, consider a few of our ideas.

Nice Dinner

Whether you consider a nice dinner any dinner that does not include your children interrupting you, or you enjoy something a little more elaborate, having a nice dinner with your spouse can be a fun way to celebrate your special day.

Limo Ride

Many people only get a handful of opportunities, at best, to enjoy a limo ride. Maybe you took a limo ride at your wedding. Perhaps the last time you enjoyed a one was at your high school prom. No matter how long it has been since you last rode in a limo, this is another fun way to celebrate your anniversary.

Listening to Great Music

For some couples, there is nothing more enjoyable than listening to great music. Whether you enjoy listening to jazz music, a string quartet, or other music that is significant to you as a couple, listening to music can be a fun and relaxing experience. Plus, great music gives you an opportunity to dance with your spouse.

Cruise

Another fun idea for an anniversary celebration is to go on a cruise. During the day, a cruise is a wonderful way to get beautiful views of the local sights from the water. Night cruises add in the benefit of seeing a picturesque sunset as well as the stars. Plus, if the weather is a little cooler, a cruise is a great opportunity to stand on the deck and cuddle close to the one you love.

Picking between these ideas might be difficult. Luckily, you do not have to pick just one. Instead, you can enjoy them all. Take a limo ride to your Potomac Belle cruise, where you can enjoy a nice catered dinner while you listen to music provided by one of our suggested companies. As an alternate, you can bring along your own CD, one that is special to you as a couple, and listen to it throughout the day or evening. Contact us to learn how you can enjoy all four of these things during a one-night celebration.
