Newbie looking for Caribbean liveaboard week experience

Greetings all,
My wife and I are looking at retiring in 12 years and are considering the liveaboard life, but have no sailing experience.

I have been looking around for a Caribbean crewed sailboat weekly charter to get a feel for the liveaboard experience, but most are extremely high priced or not overnight, wrong type of experience , etc.

What I am look for specifically is:
Weekly charter of a sailboat that would commonly be used as a liveaboard traveling boat able to cross an ocean. (Monohull, catamaran?)

Crewed by an experienced sailor who has tried the liveaboard life style.

Simple meals provided by captain. (My wife NEEDS a relaxing vacation...lol)

Visit a couple islands, also experience sea days if possible.

All with a budget of $2500.

A non commercial option would be great, ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance,
Troy
