According to Wikipedia, a cruise ship is “a passenger ship used for pleasure voyages, where the voyage itself and the ship's amenities are part of the experience.”  No mention of passenger capacity.

For those of us who love to get out on the ocean, why not slip in a small ship charter cruise between our extended duration vacations?

Miami's K&A Charters, for example, offers excursions from 6 to 500 guests aboard ships up to 500 foot in length.

Cruising on a beautiful yacht and enjoying the spectacular views of South Florida is a great way to:

  • spend a day,
