While plenty of cruise lines bill their ships as floating hotels, few truly live up to such lofty claims. Ritz-Carlton, however, is charting luxurious new territory with its nascent Yacht Collection, a trio of lavish liners that will soon bring the hospitality brand’s signature white-glove service and unrivaled amenities to the high seas. For one Robb Report reader, the long-awaited union of five-star hotels and oceangoing adventure will come with the ultimate in exclusivity, as Ritz-Carlton offers the rare opportunity to charter its first-ever yacht on a bespoke 5-night itinerary.
Aided by Ritz-Carlton’s yacht concierge, the recipient of this gift will be able to personalize virtually every aspect of his or her journey, from determining the vessel’s route (choosing from ports throughout the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Latin America, Northern Europe, Canada, and New England) to selecting as many as 297 family and friends to join the voyage. Each port of call will come with a host of curated on-demand experiences, from cooking classes in Tuscany and diving excursions in Belize to exclusive access to events like the Palio di Siena and Cayman Cookout.
The experience aboard Ritz-Carlton’s 626-foot yacht will be equally one of a kind, with private dinners crafted by chef Sven Elverfeld of Germany’s Michelin three-star Aqua and signature cocktails mixed by Bob Peters of the Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte’s Punch Room. Passengers will also have their run of the Ritz-Carlton Spa, three swimming pools, a pleasure cruiser, and 149 suites, the most lavish of which will be the two 1,883-square-foot penthouse suites (with their own private plunge pools)—no doubt reserved for the lucky Robb Report reader who sails away with this spectacular gift.
- A customized 5-night charter of the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection’s first-ever luxury vessel.
