Possibly the most luxurious cruise ship in the world, or should I say yacht, is now taking bookings and you could be one of the first onboard. This yacht combines the luxury lifestyle of The Ritz-Carlton® and the casual freedom of a yachting vacation.
The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will offer bespoke voyages on the first of three custom-built yachts in 2020, calling on unique and distinguished destinations. Each yacht will feature 149 suites, each with its own private terrace, and the ship will accommodate up to 298 guests. As with The Ritz-Carlton on land, each yacht will feature personalized service, elevated dining and luxury amenities.
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 harbours 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 Ritz-Carlton yachts will feature a restaurant by Sven Elverfeld of Aqua, the three Michelin-starred restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg; a signature Ritz-Carlton Spa; and a Panorama Lounge and wine bar, offering a wide variety of on-board entertainment. Additionally, the yacht will offer one-of-a-kind curated destination journeys through collaborations with local chefs, musicians and artists, allowing guests to experience the locations in unique and experiential ways, both onboard and ashore.
If your budget doesn’t quite allow this level of expense, you could use our secret to booking luxury hotels to get a discount on a Ritz-Carlton or a similarly luxurious hotel or pick up a travel bargain if your destination is flexible.
If you want to cruise, we love to take a trip on the wild side. These bespoke Galapagos cruises offer an unforgettable experience.
