Starting in November 2019, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will begin to set sail on the first of three lavishly built yachts offering an intimate experience for just 298 guests. 149 suites will each include a private terrace (including a pair of luxurious penthouse suites).

Ritz-Carlton has brought its modern hotel design to these ultra-pampering yachts, with local chefs, artists and musicians onboard, a Ritz-Carlton spa and the three-Michelen-starred Wolfsburg, to introduce a few of its key amenities.

Most voyages range from seven to 12 nights and will include both intimate and signature destinations. The Ritz-Carlton has partnered with Tillberg Design of Sweden to offer a world-class ship design throughout its fleet.

Whether visiting a celebrated destination or one off the beaten path, guests will benefit from a dedicated Concierge Ashore in addition to five distinct categories of shore excursions:

ICONIC SIGHTS – Cultural, historical, and architectural marvels

STIRRING THE SENSES – Wellness and well-being (think sunset yoga in the Grenadines or an encounter with a spiritual shaman)

CULTURAL CONNECTIONS – Spend a day helping protect wildlife or the natural environment

ACTIVE EXPLORATIONS – Swim with turtles in Tobago Cays or take a private sea kayak tour off the coast of Reykjavik

EPICUREAN EXPERIENCES – Learn to grow baby oysters in a private farm in Sete, France or visit a renowned winery in Bordeaux

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection is set to offer a new standard in sea travel as well as redefine the yachting experience. Designed to combine the lifestyle of The Ritz-Carlton’s luxury resorts and the casual freedom of a yachting vacation, no two itinerary routes are alike.

The first ship will cruise a wide variety of destinations depending on the season, including the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Caribbean, Latin America, Canada and Northeastern United States.

Ports along the way range from Barbados, Cartagena, Bordeaux and Copenhagen, as well as ports that deliver a yacht-style sailing experience including Carriacou, Falmouth Harbour, Gustavia, the Balearic Islands, Mykonos, Portofino and more.

Guests will have the opportunity to combine back-to-back voyages without repeating ports, allowing them to enjoy true exploration across a broad range of destinations.

To complement the unique itineraries, shore excursion tracks are thematically crafted so guests can easily pick a category that fits their interests and activity levels.

All shore excursions take advantage of local guides who have been handpicked for their insider knowledge, ensuring a highly personalized, relevant experience while exploring a destination.

Reservations will open to the public this coming June, following priority access booking in May for Ritz-Carlton and Marriott Rewards loyalty members.

Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection passengers will enjoy an all-inclusive luxury sailing experience including spacious accommodations, onboard activities and entertainment, multiple dining venues, onboard gratuities and WiFi.

Voyage prices will vary based upon the itinerary and season.

You can also charter these ships for a private journey like no other. Visit Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection online for more info.
