Working alongside Burgess, once Based On A True Story has created your core cruising strategy, it starts to get creative and works on the finer details of every moment that can come alive.
What truly sets Based On A True Story apart is its unique creativity and passionate attention to intricate detail. Its service takes the luxurious experience from on board to on shore, from full scale theatrical productions to gaining exclusivity over highly sought after locations.
Deeply romantic and intimate dining set-ups in mythical settings, or simply super-styling on shore, it’s the detail that really drives this dream building company. It always seeks to deliver total perfection.
Every journey has an elegant marque custom designed. This could appear on the beautifully designed cards it creates, cards that are both educational and entertaining, challenging and interactive, to bring each and every dinner alive. Or, for example, on a wax seal that reveals an illustrated treasure map to set a new course to engage your children for the next chapter of your immersive adventures. Based On A True Story's passion for creative and intricate detail is what stitches the gown that cloaks your experience.
You can treat your children to a whole magical and mythological world, where every time they step ashore magic unfolds before them. Everybody they encounter is in costume and speaks in riddle and rhyme. Mythological quests that engage hundreds of actors, that in turn become legends in the fabric of your lives, and then live on in your imagination. This is all Based On A True Story...
Adults step ashore to a wonderland of sophistication, where every evening has special surprises awaiting. Perhaps an intimate dinner within a secret natural amphitheatre, which provides superb acoustics as local musicians serenade you beneath a timely full moon? Under the stars, around the fire, with an attentive butler serving exotic delicacies and beguiling concoctions.
Entirely bespoke creative touches, small and often quite subtle, surprise and delight. Equally they can create theatrical drama that will deliver awe and wonder, engaging with guests and delivering magic - both at sea and ashore - where others simply follow the compass.
Here are a few examples of the immersive experiences the company has created for its guests
