The Ritz-Carlton takes to the sea, making them the first luxury hotel brand to offer bespoke yacht experiences.
In collaboration with the design team, Tillberg Design of Sweden, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will launch with three ultra-luxe “cruise yachts” with the first of the fleet to be launched and take sail end of 2019.
The ultra-luxe cruise yachts feature a unique design measuring 190-meters with 149 private balcony suites and two 138 square-meter duplex penthouse suites. Voyages will vary between 7-10 days; when not on scheduled voyages, the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will also be available for private charter. The first ship will cruise to a variety of destinations depending on the season. Confirmed locations include the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America. As well, due to the intimate size of the vessel, the yacht will be able to travel to unique locations typically not accessible to large cruise ships, from Capri and Portofino to St. Barths and the old town of Cartagena. At a relaxed pace, including both overnight and daytime ports, guests will be offered a uniquely curated destination experience. Reservations will be open in May 2018, standard one-week cruises are noted to have a $5,600 price tag with each ship only accommodating up to 298 guests.
