Ritz-Carlton isn’t the first luxury hotel company to place its name on a cruise ship — Regent rebranded the Radisson fleet in 2006 and Virgin Group, which operates luxury resorts, launched Virgin Voyages — but Ritz-Carlton is taking a more exclusive approach by licensing its name for a fleet of “superyachts” developed by a separate company. The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, whose June 2020 launch of 298-passenger Ritz-Carlton Evrima was delayed by the global pandemic, will now debut in April 2021 with sailings in the Mediterranean, Adriatic and Greek Isles through August 2021, followed by itineraries in Canada/New England and the Caribbean. Most cruises are 7 to 12 nights and linger longer in port, often overnighting. But what awaits onboard for those who book one of the newest small luxury ships at sea? If the renderings and virtual-reality walk-throughs are any indication, a blissful journey of relaxation and discovery.
