It must be nice to be royalty. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, while on their Seychelles honeymoon, have reportedly rented a $3.2 million yacht for sightseeing around the islands.

The dynamic duo, no strangers to water sports (have you seen Kate in a bikini?!), have chartered the Sea Stream, which is said to be the fastest luxury crewed boat in the Seychelles, according to our AOL Travel counterparts in the U.K.

The boat costs around $42,000 a week to hire and comes equipped with jet skis and scuba diving gear. William had said while he was in Australia earlier this year that he wanted to scuba dive on his honeymoon.

The royals dined like, well, royalty while on board, too. They were said to eat sushi, Parma ham and other delicious bites while aboard.

Check out incredible photos of the boat here.

The royal honeymoon is no cheap affair. The villa that the newlyweds are reportedly staying in costs a whopping $6,500 per night.
