The luxury hotel chain has just opened reservations for The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, which is due to hit seas in February 2020, marking the first time a luxury hotel will bring its services to the high seas.
At present, there are three voyages available to book: one to the Caribbean (where stops will include Barbados and Cartegena), one to the Mediterranean (stopping in Mykonos and Portofino amongst other destinations) and one to Northern Europe (with stops at Copenhagen and Bordeaux). Each trip will last between seven and ten days and accommodate only 293 passengers to ensure an intimate, luxury experience.
There are a total of six different suites to choose from onboard all of which offer a varying level of luxury and excellence.
Life on board is laid back and casual, with a sense of freedom and flexibility.
