High-end hotel brand Ritz-Carlton has announced it is taking its legendary service and unmatched luxury to the high seas with the creation of three lavishly built yachts to venture to unique and distinguished destinations around the world on bespoke cruises.
The lavish 623ft vessels will each accommodate up to 298 passengers across 149 suites, with each having a private balcony, as well as two 450-sq-ft duplex penthouses with modern craftsmanship and interior finishes jointly designed by The Ritz-Carlton and leading cruise ship design firm, Tillberg Design of Sweden.
The facilities of the yacht’s will include a spa, a panoramic 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.
As well as this they will also boast a restaurant conceived by Chef Sven Elverfeld, who heads up Aqua - a three Michelin star eatery at the Ritz Carlton Wolfsburg in Germany.
Voyages will range between seven to ten days with destinations including the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America.
And due to their relatively intimate size, the yachts will also call at locations typically not accessible to large cruise ships, from Capri and Portofino to St Barths and the old town of Cartagena.
The plan is to be able to take reservations buy May next year. For more information please head on over to ritzcarlton.com
