You’ve booked the flights, picked your destination, chartered the boat and started packing, but now it’s time to think about creating that vital holiday atmosphere on board. While the sound of nature is music to our ears, particularly the ocean lapping against the shore and the wind catching the sails, the boat’s soundtrack is often the last thing thought about. Worry not! Your LateSail team has got your summer/autumn playlists ready for you on Spotify.
Every holiday deserves an amazing soundtrack and we’ve curated our playlist across three themes to get you dancing, feeling relaxed while watching the sunrise or sunset and celebrating the full sailing vibe.
We’ve delved into our archives to find the right tracks to add to the boat’s ambience. Our team spans many decades (yes, we look younger than we are!) and you’ll find an eclectic mix where there is something for everyone. Head over to our LateSail Spotify profile to find our three playlists below.
