Beginning in November 2019, the Ritz-Carlton will launch the first of its three cruising yacht experiences with the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. Trips will be available in 7-10 day packages and will travel to destinations such as the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Carribean, Latin America, and more. Port stops will include locations like Barbados, Cartagena, Bordeaux, and Copenhagen. You will also be able to book back-to-back trips without the same port destinations so you can experience a wide variety of locales.
Measuring 623 feet in length, each yacht has 149 suites with enough room to host up to 298 guests and each room has its own private terrace. Two 1700 square-foot penthouses are also available and feature their own whirlpools and interior designs by Tillberg Design of Sweden. For travelers seeking a more unique itinerary, a Concierge Ashore service can deliver customized experiences complete with exclusive access and private guides.
Booking begins in May 2018 for Ritz-Carlton and Marriott Rewards loyalty members and public bookings start in June 2018.
