For more than a century now, Ritz-Carlton and its chain of hotels and resorts have been synonymous with extreme luxury. Now, however, the brand is conquering a new frontier — bringing opulence to the oceans with their Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection.
Don’t let the name fool you — each of the three “yachts” is definitely more akin to a fully-featured cruise ship — including 149 luxury suites (each with their own private terrace), multiple relaxation decks, numerous options for elevated dining (including a restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Sven Elverfeld), and even a collection of expeditionary vessels (day boats, jet skis, etc.) for shorter day trips. And the company is promising that every journey — be that across the Atlantic Ocean, to the Caribbean and back, or otherwise — will also include bespoke, personalized services for each of the 298 guests aboard. Ritz-Carlton is booking suites aboard their trio of yachts for the 2020 season, starting at $4,600, right now.
