The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company is sailing into a new adventure that has us ready to set sail: the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection! Since 1983, Ritz-Carlton has established itself as synonymous with luxury hotels. But now you can get that same white-glove service and personalized experience from the ladies and gentlemen of Ritz-Carlton both on land AND on sea.
The first of three vessels in the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection is set to launch in 2020 (let the countdown begin!). The ultra-lux, custom-built yachts will feature the timeless style and exceptional service we all love. So what will set these cruises apart from their other small, luxury competitors?
Ritz-Carlton Resort Lifestyle
You may be on a luxury yacht, but the company aims to combine the relaxed lifestyle you find at a Ritz-Carlton Resort with the casual freedom of yachting.
Ranging from 7- to 10-day voyages, each itinerary will take travelers to unique destinations you won’t find on a large cruise ship itinerary. Imagine sipping limoncello in Capri or exploring old town Cartagena and then sailing off to your next glamorous port with the greatest of ease (and only unpacking once!). Depending on the season, these ships will cruise in the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Caribbean, and Latin America.
Forget cruising with 1000+ other travelers. The Ritz-Carlton yachts will accommodate 298 passengers max in 149 suites. You can dine at a restaurant by Sven Elverfeld of Aqua, the three Michelin-starred restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, and end your night at a Panorama Lounge and wine bar. During the day, relax in the signature Ritz-Carlton spa or access the sea via the marina-style platform.
Ritz-Carlton is working with Jean-Michel Cousteau and his Ocean Futures Society as well as local chefs, musicians, and artists to curate one-of-a-kind destination journeys. Whether you’re onboard or ashore, you can experience each destination in a unique, authentic way.
Pre- and Post-Cruise
Unlike any other cruise, you can bookend your trip with the same level of luxury by staying at a Ritz-Carlton hotel or resort. And don’t forget – Brownell is a Ritz-Carlton STARS agency so as our client you are always a privileged VIP guest. You will truly be “putting on the Ritz” during one fabulous vacation!
