As one of the most recognised and respected names in the luxury hotel world, big things are expected of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. A world first for a land-based luxury hotel brand, the first of three exceptionally designed yachts will make headway into luxury cruise territory in 2020, combining the Ritz-Carlton lifestyle with the casual freedom of a yachting holiday.

Featuring just 149 spacious suites, all with private terraces overlooking the ocean, the crew to guest ratio is an impressive 1 to 1.21, ensuring personalised and attentive service at all times. There are plenty of special touches to ensure the Ritz Carlton Gold Standard service is carried through from land to sea, from the steward who offers you a cold towel as you step on board, to the chilled mint water you can sip as you walk back to your suite and the bottle of Champagne waiting for you on arrival. With your own dedicated Personal Assistant, every wish can be catered to seamlessly, whether you would like to arrange dinner reservations or find your perfect shore excursion.

Setting The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection apart from many other luxury cruise lines is its relaxed pace, boasting more overnights in ports of call and an intimate size that allows access to tucked away destinations. Inside, its residential feel and casual yet elegant atmosphere offers cosy spots to unwind by day, plus cocktails and live music to enjoy by night. From Canada and New England to the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Northern Europe, this is one of the finest ways to see the world, with a wonderfully immersive array of shore excursions on offer.

As you would expect from any Ritz-Carlton venture, the on-board dining is exceptional. With five venues to choose from, you can dine al fresco or in sophisticated restaurant interiors, with regionally inspired cuisine featured on innovative menus. The yachts also boast a fine dining experience designed by Chef Sven Elverfeld from The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg’s three Michelin-starred restaurant, Aqua.

With plenty of places to relax and have fun, including the Observation Lounge where you can take it easy with cocktails and music in the evening, and the Marina, where you can dip straight into the sea with the yachts’ collection of water toys, you can enjoy laidback days of luxury. Boasting a ratio of more than 86 square feet per guest, there is room to accommodate all, from children at Ritz-Kids children’s club, to those looking for pampering at the sumptuous spa.

Food & Beverage+

Boasting a fully all-inclusive offering, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection features five unique dining experiences. Combining fresh ingredients with expert craftsmanship, you can taste the flavours of the ports you visit at speciality restaurants, set within stunning interiors or wonderful al fresco areas for stunning sea views. In the main dining room, you can enjoy an intimate seating plan and choose from a daily changing menu of regionally inspired creations.

Alternatively, you can choose to take a seat at the contemporary and laid-back Asian Fusion restaurant, where you can sit down at the sushi bar or outside on the terrace. Casual options also include the Outdoor Grill with its seafood and prime cuts, offering some of the best views, or the Marina Lounge and Bar, which serves a variety of cuisines from breakfast through to late-night. For a quick refreshment, the Living Room Café offers freshly roasted coffee and delightful pastries all through the day.

An additional charge and advanced reservations are required to dine at the top dining experience. Led by Chef Sven Elverfeld of Aqua, the three Michelin-starred restaurant of The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg, this European à la carte journey offers a sophisticated menu in an equally chic setting. To toast your journey with premium Champagne and caviar pairings, head to the Champagne Bar, where you can relax in the intimate lounge.

Health & Fitness+

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection does not lack when it comes to its spa offering. Find a truly restorative spa experience at sea and indulge in locally inspired treatments at the on-board Ritz-Carlton Spa. Featuring five treatment rooms, plus al fresco treatment areas with ocean views, you can unwind with locally inspired massages and facials or pamper yourself in the beauty lounge, grooming salon, sauna or steam room. There is also a gym with an integrated health and wellness program, which offers lectures and nutritional advice, plus personal training in the gym, sunrise yoga and mat Pilates, perfect for those who like to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Relaxation & Education+

Life on board the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection offers plenty of time and space for relaxation. At the Marina Terrace, you can take it easy on a sun lounger and grab a cocktail or light snack from the bar to refresh with as you enjoy the views – just steps from the waters edge, you can also take some water toys out for a splash during port days!

Alternatively, you can relax by the swimming pool, where The Marina Lounge & Bar offers all-day dining; with sun loungers, banquettes and whirlpools to recline in, frozen treats and refreshing water mists will ensure you are kept comfortable. For a moment of peace, curl up in the Living Room and loose yourself in a book with a cup of freshly ground coffee. Cap the day off at The Humidor lounge, where you can get comfortable with a premium Cognac, or watch the sun set from The Observation Lounge.

Music & Entertainment+

Entertainment on board The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection is an intimate affair. With resident classical and jazz musicians onboard, performances are held across the ships’ venues throughout your journey. Partnering with local arts and musical communities, there are authentic performers to help you feel the culture, plus discussions and lectures with experts to help you learn more.


There are leading labels of sportswear, jewellery and leather goods, plus collaborations with local artisans in selected ports.

Young Cruisers+

Families are welcome on The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. Children will have their own dedicated space onboard with the Ritz-Kids program, with educational and fun-filled activities to encourage ages four to twelve years to explore the world around them, plus enhanced services during the summer and holiday periods.

Shore Excursions+

There are five excursion themes offered by The Shore Collection, which offers highly-personalised small-group excursions ensuring an authentic, immersive and rewarding experience. Discover iconic sights when you browse a museum with its curator or explore old towns with a historian guide. The Epicurean Experiences will take you to Michelin-starred restaurants, renowned wineries or fish markets with celebrated chefs, where you can see dishes prepared with flair.

The Stirring the Senses offering puts wellbeing and rejuvenation at their core, whether you are stepping into fields of lavender to create your own perfume or unwinding with a yoga session on a private beach. Active Explorations could be in the form of zip lining over valleys, kayaking through mangroves or boarding a speed boat, while Cultural Connections offer the chance for you to spend the day helping to protect wildlife or helping raise awareness of local causes.
