Spanish term or phrase: cruise, charter cruise
Not week-long cruises on cruise ships. These are "three-hour cruise" type excursions on smaller vessels; EG, dinner cruise, sunset cruise, etc. In similar contexts I've seen "paseo, excursión, navegación" rather than "crucero" for cruise, and "privado, exclusivo, chárter" rather than "fletado" for charter. Suggestions?

excursiones privadas
Explanation:
Tienes toda la razón, pues en el caso de México hay yates para excursiones (a La Roqueta, Playa Fulanita, "para ver las ballenas", etc.), y pueden rentarse dichos yates para "excursiones privadas", que deben ser muy divertidas.

crucero, crucero chárter


Explanation:
Time makes de difference between crucero, excursion, o paseo. Although there is no clear time limits imposed, colloquial Spanish adds the time element to these terms
A cruise (crucero) lasts days or weeks, while an excursion may take a day or several days, and a paseo an hour or several hours. Crucero is more related to sea trips and visiting several ports. You would never hear In Spanish: "Hice un crucero por la montaña". Paseo -from the word paso (step), walking distance- involves short-distance and short-period of time. In Spanish you do not say: "Voy a dar un paseo por Australia". Chárter is used when you rent a boat or ship to cruise. In a chárter cruise it is a matter of cost and money. A chárter is more expensive than a paseo or a excursión. A chárter involves renting a ship or boat and may include a crew. A plain cruise you pay only for the time or the trip, not for the renting of the boat and the crew, like in the case of a chárter cruise.

Hope it helps.
