Cruises on the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection open for reservations in June 2018. The first of the three custom built yachts for their new cruise line is scheduled to debut in 2020. Due to the intimate size of the vessels, the yachts will call at unique locations typically not accessible to large cruise ships.
Each yacht will feature 149 suites, each with its own private terrace, and accommodate up to 298 guests in a relaxed, casually elegant atmosphere. As with the Ritz-Carlton on land, each yacht will feature personalized service, elevated dining and luxury amenities. To provide the highest quality service, there will be nearly as many staff members as guests.
The first cruise on this new cruise line from Ritz-Carlton will depart from Ft. Lauderdale on February 5, 2020 for a 10 night cruise to the Caribbean. Port stops include San Juan, Vieques, Santo Domingo, Guadeloupe, Martinique, and Barbados. Prices start at $7,900 per person for the maiden voyage.
All-inclusive fares include:
- All-suite oceanview accommodations, each with private terrace
- Dedicated Personal Assistant attending each suite
- Onboard gratuities
- Multiple dining venues
- 24-hour in-suite dining
- Beverages in-suite and throughout the yacht
- Onboard entertainment and enrichment
- Marina-style platform with access to watersports
Throughout the journey, guests will indulge in a cruising style that is unparalleled in the ultra-luxury cruise and private yachting sectors. The Ritz-Carlton yachts will feature a restaurant by Sven Elverfeld of Aqua, the three Michelin-starred restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg; a signature Ritz-Carlton Spa; and a Panorama Lounge and wine bar, offering a wide variety of on-board entertainment. Additionally, the yacht will offer one-of-a-kind curated destination journeys through collaborations with local chefs, musicians and artists, allowing guests to experience the locations in unique and experiential ways, both onboard and ashore.
A voyage with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection offers an unprecedented opportunity to be untethered. Here, freedom and flexibility allow immersion in life’s exceptional experiences; exploration of earth’s exquisite and unexpected hideaways; and stirring of passions and curiosities that create new and deepened connections.
All of this delivered in an intimate setting with a heightened level of care and attention. Enlivened and enlightened, marvel at the beauty of the world through fresh eyes.
