The Ritz-Carlton hotel brand is entering the luxury cruise market with the ultimate yacht.

If you want the very best luxury at sea then why not try one of the mega cruising yachts which The Ritz-Carlton announced today. The hotel group has ordered three super yachts with the first one entering service in 2019.

Herve Humler, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C, said:

“The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will have a distinctive personality and the vessels are sure to be true stand outs in some of the most glamorous ports around the world.”

“This unique combination of yachting and cruising will usher in a new way of luxury travel for guests seeking to discover the world in a relaxed, casually elegant and comfortable atmosphere with the highest level of personalized service.”

The luxury yachts will be able to call at ports larger cruise ships can’t go and guests will get the amazing service as seen on land by Ritz Carlton Hotels. Itineraries are still under development but will range from 7 to 10-day voyages.

The specially designed small capacity vessel will measure 190-meters, accommodate up to 298 passengers, and feature 149 suites, each with its own private balcony. The yacht will also feature two 138 square-meter lavish duplex penthouse suites, with modern craftsmanship and interior finishes.

Bookings for the first cruise yacht will open in May 2018 and further details will be revealed in the coming months.
