Here are some of our ideas you can do – some on rainy days and some on non-rainy days: Afternoon Tea One of the favourite itinerary program you can suggest for a yacht charter trip is afternoon tea. It is said to be an exciting highlight of the trip, except that you have to bring your own food into the yacht, for the catamarans.

We have a dedicated team even at the backend who will do the planning beforehand for you. Simply fill in your request when you book your charters with us on the food and we will customise the food order for you. Island Hopping Charters Do you enjoy sightseeing while on a small catamaran vacation very much? Our yachts do the island hopping activities very often. They hop around Kusu Island, St John’s Island and Lazarus Island. Usually, the yachts will stop by while the guests do some simple water sports, or walk around the island for a while. If your mum is quite sporty and adventurous and wouldn’t mind the island walk, or even if she’s into travel, such island hopping charters are good for you and her. Once a while, it’ll be good to bring her around for such scenic views of Singapore’s well-loved nature. Karaoke Session How about some fun singing sessions using our KTV set?

We have our crew, some of whom possess great culinary skills. They are also well trained in yacht hospitality, with service standards comparable to those of hotel ones. Though this applies more to superyacht, we have experienced this before with our spaghetti and gratin, served to the dining table. Our guests happily enjoyed the gratin and even remarked that the spaghetti, which was aglio olio, is a healthy meal with the use of the olive oil. Star Of The Sea superyacht has an indoor dining table which corporations can use for some chill out or serious business networking gathering. At this table, consumption of the spaghetti and gratin is also more possible with the convenient ambience and ease of dining.

Chinese New Year, also known as Spring Festival, is the most important traditional holiday in Singapore. It is celebrated by Singapore’s Chinese community, which makes up around 74% of the population. During this time, families come together to celebrate and bond with one another. One of the key traditions of Chinese New Year is the reunion dinner, which typically takes place on New Year’s Eve. Family members who live away from home, such as those working or studying in another city or country, will make the journey back to be with their loved ones. The reunion dinner is a time for families to catch up and reminisce about the past year, and to make plans for the year ahead. Traditionally, the reunion dinner is a grand and elaborate affair, with many different dishes being served to symbolize prosperity and good luck for the coming year. Some popular dishes include fish, dumplings, and noodles. Food plays an important role during Chinese New Year and it’s significant during the reunion dinner to not only symbolize the gathering of family but also the prosperity of the upcoming year. After the reunion dinner, the first two days of Chinese New Year are spent visiting relatives and friends. This is known as “bai nian” in Mandarin, which means “to pay a New Year visit.” People will typically visit the most senior members of their family first, such as grandparents and parents, before visiting other relatives and friends. During these visits, it’s common to exchange gifts, such as red packets filled with money, and to catch up on the past year. Family bonding during Chinese New Year is not limited to the Chinese community in Singapore. There is a Chinese saying 家和万事兴 meaning If a house is divided against itself, it cannot stand – “family harmonious everything prospers”. It further means that everything will go well in the face of harmonious families (learn more). Therefore, Chinese New Year family gathering is of importance to people in Singapore. Many families in Singapore come together during this time of the year to celebrate, to bond and to share in the joy of reunion. What To Expect In 2023 Chinese New Year And Beyond It is 2023 now and though we are still in the midst of the pandemic, the restrictions of social distancing have been relaxed. And this is the first Chinese New Year since 2021 where we can all enjoy in group sizes limitlessly. Do you still remember the Chinese New Year in 2021 and 2022, where we often have to gather in restricted sizes of 8 or 5 only? And we often worry about the coronavirus infections, especially the dreaded Omicron variant last year in 2022. People also often got infected with the coronavirus during the Chinese New Year 2022 – all the more we must treasure our family bonding moments this Chinese New Year in 2023 when we can mingle about in sizes larger than 10. Yacht chartering to foster family relationships onboard is a viable option in Singapore. At times when the outdoor weather is very cold in places like China and Taiwan, the Singapore weather outside is still sunny and perfect for outdoor gathering. Onboard the yacht, you can enjoy the sunset during evening reunion dinner sessions, feel the windy sea breeze on your face and even watch beautiful wave patterns of the waters, while socializing in the vessel. There are also other unique ways of family bonding too. Good Tips For Family Bonding Onboard The Yacht Yacht chartering can be a great way for families to bond and create memories together in Singapore. Here … Read More

From choosing the right yacht and catering to entertainment and team-building activities, we’ve got you covered. So hop aboard and let’s get started! Choosing The Right Yacht First and foremost, it’s important to choose the right yacht for your event. Consider the size of your group and the duration of your trip, as well as any additional amenities you may want on board, such as a karaoke lounge, BBQ pit or sun deck. It’s also a good idea to research and compare different yacht charter companies to find the best fit for your budget and needs. Food Catering Options Once you’ve chosen your yacht, it’s time to start thinking about catering. While many yacht charter companies offer in-house catering options, you may also choose to bring in your own catering team or even have the event catered by a local restaurant. Be sure to consider any dietary restrictions or preferences of your guests and communicate these to your catering team. Type Of Corporate Activities Entertainment is another important aspect of your corporate event on a yacht charter. Will you have a DJ or live music? Will there be any team-building activities or games? Consider the theme and atmosphere of your event and choose entertainment options that align with this. It’s also a good idea to have some backup options in case of inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances. In addition to entertainment, consider incorporating some team-building activities into your event. A yacht charter provides a unique setting for activities such as scavenger hunts or sailing lessons. These can help to foster a sense of camaraderie and teamwork among your team members. Besides the above, you can also do simple team bonding activities or other water sport activities like kayaking, stand up paddle board, or even fishing together. The activities can come from some informal interest groups within the company. Yacht Decor Decor and theme are also important considerations for your corporate event on a yacht charter. Will you go for a more formal, elegant vibe or a relaxed, beachy theme? Choose decor and theme elements that match the overall atmosphere of your event and make sure to communicate these to your yacht charter company and any vendors you may be working with. Which Time Of The Day Another factor to consider is the timing of your event. A morning or afternoon charter may be more suitable for a business meeting, while an evening charter allows for a more social atmosphere. Keep in mind that Singapore can be quite hot and humid, so it’s a good idea to have plenty of shade and hydration options available for your guests. Yacht Capacity Limit Corporations are mega in size in Singapore. Many are multinationals hailing from USA, UK, Japan and even local corporations like DBS. A department can be huge.

Differences Between Team Bonding Activities And Team Building Activities Team building activities and team bonding activities are similar in that they both involve bringing members of a team together to improve their ability to work well together. However, there are some key differences between the two. Team building activities are structured activities that are designed to help improve specific aspects of a team’s performance, such as communication, problem-solving, or decision-making. These activities often have a clear goal or objective, and they may involve challenges or simulations that require team members to work together to overcome obstacles and achieve their goal. They may be more physically or mentally challenging, such as team sports or puzzle-solving games [Find out more about the fun team building activities onboard the yacht] Team bonding activities, on the other hand, are more informal and focused on building relationships and camaraderie among team members. These activities may be social in nature, such as team lunches or outings. The goal of team bonding activities is to bring team members closer together and foster a sense of trust and support within the team. Overall, team building activities are more focused on improving the team’s ability to work together effectively, while team bonding activities are focused on fostering a positive team culture and strong relationships among team members. Both types of activities can be valuable for teams, and many organizations choose to incorporate both into their team-building efforts. What Are The Team Bonding Activities Team bonding activities can encourage social gathering in any organisations, including companies. Now that social distancing rules and restrictions have been lifted amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, there are huge opportunities for organisations to bond together in a team setting again. But what activities can organisations suggest onboard the yacht when they do the yacht chartering? Here is a suggested list of team bonding activities you can do in our yacht: Personality Differences Before the trip, plan for the personality test or quiz to find out what your employees are.
