If you've ever dreamed of lounging on your own private yacht, welcome to the next best thing. Variety sails scheduled trips on eight small ships — five motor vessels and three motorized sailboats. Each is different, ranging from sleek megayachts (17 to 36 cabins) to classic sailing ships (24 to 25 cabins). You'll usually find these Greek-owned vessels cruising Greece, Turkey, and Africa, though the line has added Panama Canal and Cuba itineraries. Variety specializes in shorter trips for folks who (sigh) can't be away from work for too long. By the end of a cruise, you'll likely know all of your fellow passengers by name on these upscale but laid-back ships.
