A few years ago, Ritz-Carlton announced all its plans to bring out a collection of yachts that would offer a unique and extremely luxurious travel experience. Curious and interested people no longer have to wait and can now finally sign up for the holiday of a lifetime! The first cruises will depart in June 2020.
The group behind the many luxury hotels and resorts goes one step further in offering the ultimate travel experience where service, relaxation, quality and exclusivity are central. The 'Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection' consists of three vessels that are located somewhere between a private super yacht and a small cruise ship and that overcome all the stereotypes there are about cruises. The 149 suites each have their own terrace and range in size from 40 to over 100 square metres. There are suites that can be connected for even more space and the Loft Suites consist of two floors — a living and dining area upstairs and a bedroom downstairs. The two Owner's Suites even have two bathrooms, a private whirlpool and a terrace of about 55 m2.
"A unique and extremely luxurious travel experience"
The ship has ten decks, each with its own function and interpretation. There are several lounge areas and terraces for an al fresco breakfast, lunch, aperitif or dinner. The library on the fourth deck changes in the evening into a cocktail bar with live music. On the sixth deck you will find two luxury restaurants and a champagne bar which offers caviar pairing. Deck nine is completely dedicated to sports and relaxation with a fitness that offers a personal trainer or a personalised wellness programme. The spa consists of a full-service beauty salon, sauna, steam room and even a grooming salon for the male guests.
"Service, relaxation, quality and exclusivity are central"
Entertainment is provided both on board the ship and through a variety of onshore activities. Top chefs, artists, guest speakers and in-house musicians will do their utmost to make this an inspiring and relaxing holiday, but travellers can also call on their personal assistant to put together a tailor-made activity programme. Interested in cultural excursions to museums, the opera or a wine tasting when you moor or would you prefer to go snorkelling and discover a rainforest by zip-line? It's all possible! There are cruises along the Caribbean, the Balearic Islands, the French Riviera, Monaco, the Baltic States, St. Petersburg, the Norwegian Fjords and Canada and New England.
