The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection is poised to become the most coveted experience at sea. Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will debut in 2020 and the cruise line has unveiled a first look at the suites that will be on their first cruise ship. Created to feel like a private yacht, the vessel will uniquely feature one designer, resulting in a unified flow of design which is refined, relaxed and unlike any other accommodations at sea.
The interior design of the inaugural yacht was imagined by Tillberg Design of Sweden in collaboration with The Ritz-Carlton. Each facet of luxury yachting was considered to promise a voyage which combines the lifestyle of the resorts of The-Ritz Carlton with the casual freedom of a yachting vacation.
Boasting a residential feel, the suites’ design inspiration includes the sleek and contemporary look of The Ritz-Carlton Residences in Sunny Isles, Miami Beach and Los Angeles, and offers a spacious setting, innovative marine qualities and some of the most designforward yacht interiors in the world.
Complementing the unprecedented itineraries and signature experiences of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, the design of the yacht’s 149 suites is an integral aspect of what sets the vessel apart. In addition to offering a high percentage of large suites, the yacht will also feature several innovative loft suites, a unique two-story accommodation that is ideal for in-suite entertaining. All suites will feature a private terrace, floor to ceiling windows and great ceiling heights, resulting in some of the most airy and expansive guestrooms in the luxury cruise category.
Through a soundproof, blind wall, select suites also have the option to be combined into larger, open-concept spaces allowing for more flexibility when selecting accommodations. All suites feature the luxurious amenities that visitors would find at a Ritz-Carlton on land, including a king bed, double vanity bathroom, luxury linens and more. Perfectly marrying form and function, the light-filled accommodations will connect guests to the seas and harbors they are sailing.
The specially designed yacht measures 190-meters and can accommodate up to 298 passengers. The onboard experience will reflect the sublime comfort and legendary guest service for which the iconic Ritz-Carlton brand is recognized. The yachts will also have one of the highest crew to guest ratios in luxury cruising, with almost one crew member for every guest.
Each suite has access to a Personal Concierge, guests’ single onboard touch point there to ensure a flawless, seamless journey from beginning to end.
In addition to unparalleled accommodations, guests of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will enjoy an all-inclusive luxury experience including onboard activities and entertainment, beverages, multiple dining venues, onboard gratuities, WiFi and watersports from the yacht’s marina.
Signature experiences available for an additional fee include a culinary experience at the yacht’s specialty restaurant designed by three Michelin-starred Chef Sven Elverfeld of The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg, spa treatments at the signature Ritz-Carlton Spa, and immersive excursions offered through The Shore Collection. Voyage prices vary based upon the itinerary and season.
The yachts of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection are also available for private charter.
