Reservations are now open for the inaugural season of the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, set to take the seas in February 2020.

With several distinct itineraries available in 2020, guests have the option to book back-to-back voyages without repeating ports, allowing them to explore a wider range of destinations and delve into the local culture at each port.

“The opening of reservations marks an exciting milestone for the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, which is set to redefine luxury at sea,” said Doug Prothero, chief executive officer of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection.

“Whether you are looking for culture, adventure, or the chance to go off the beaten path, we are thrilled to be able to invite guests to explore the world with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection.”

Designed with a yachting lifestyle in mind, the first of three bespoke yachts in the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will stop at both signature and iconic destinations.

Its intimate size allows for the vessels to sail into coveted city harbors around the world, and the relaxed pace of the yachts offers both daytime and overnight ports of call, giving guests more flexibility for their time on land.

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

Voyages will range from seven to 10 nights with ports including Barbados, Cartagena, Bordeaux, Copenhagen, Mykonos, Portofino and many more.

Each itinerary is packed with unique programming at each destination, from the Christening Celebration on the Inaugural Voyage to the Monaco Grand Prix, Edinburgh Military Tattoo, exploring the yachting playgrounds of the Greek Isles, Balearic Islands and French Riviera, as well as celebrating the holidays in the Caribbean.

The specially designed yacht will measure 190-metres, accommodate up to 298 passengers and feature 149 suites, each with its own private terrace.

The yacht will also feature two 158 square-metre lavish Owner’s suites, each with its own private whirlpool, modern craftsmanship and interior finishes jointly designed by The Ritz-Carlton and leading design firm Tillberg Design of Sweden.

The onboard experience will reflect the sublime comfort and unparalleled level of individualised guest service for which the iconic Ritz-Carlton brand is recognised, with one of the highest staff to guest service ratios in the cruise industry.

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection guests will enjoy an all-inclusive luxury sailing experience including spacious accommodation, onboard activities and entertainment, beverages, multiple dining venues, onboard gratuities, Wi-Fi and watersports from the yacht’s marina.

Signature experiences available for an additional fee include a culinary experience at Aqua, the yacht’s signature restaurant designed by Michelin-starred chef Sven Elverfeld, spa treatments, and immersive excursions offered through the Shore Collection. Voyage prices vary based upon the itinerary and season.
