Specialty restaurants, intimate venues, and innovative menus ensure your every culinary craving can be fulfilled. Stunning contemporary interiors maintain an understated and relaxed luxury, while al fresco spaces embrace the fresh sea air and daily destination. Tempt your palate with our unique dining experiences including regionally inspired cuisine that provides a more immersive experience in the cultural traditions of a location. Indulge in an à la carte dining experience designed by Chef Sven Elverfeld of Aqua, the three Michelin-starred restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton®, Wolfsburg; enjoy a fresh catch al fresco as you bask poolside; or order in-suite dining whenever the mood strikes.
Of all the remarkable destinations you’ll sail to, the yacht itself may become your favorite — especially after a day ashore. The steward who welcomes you with a cold towel to take off the heat. The attendant who hands you chilled mint water on the way to your suite. With almost as many staff members as guests, every wish — even wishful thinking is our command. With service so intuitive and with such an unwavering commitment to detail, you’ll enjoy a sense of freedom that is quite extraordinary at sea, relaxed and at ease, far removed from your everyday world.
Your Personal Concierge
Your suite comes with access to a Personal Concierge, there to ensure every detail is considered – from dinner reservations at our specialty dining restaurant to organizing your destination experiences in one of our immersive Shore Collection excursions. The Personal Concierge is your single onboard touch point to ensure a flawless, seamless journey from beginning to end.
The Ritz-Carlton® Gold Standard
With an everlasting credo and unwavering commitment to service, The Ritz-Carlton® has been recognized with numerous awards for being the precedent of hospitality worldwide – and now equally extraordinary at sea.
Like the slower pace lifestyle of a super yacht, life on board is laid back and casual, with a sense of freedom and flexibility. Spaces are designed to embrace the natural surroundings, with walls of glass that flow seamlessly toward the sea and elegant yet comfortable décor. And thanks to a spectacular space ratio of more than 89 square feet per guest, there’s room to accommodate the luxuries of a boutique resort, including a full-service spa and a generous collection of water toys. Evenings can be enjoyed with cocktails and live music in the Living Room or late-night dancing in the Observation Lounge. A local celebrity may be on board for a specially curated performance. Or some may prefer to head for a club in town to take in the local scene.
MARINA AND MARINA TERRACE
Sitting right at the water’s edge, the Marina offers sun loungers and a generous choice of water toys. Like a private beach with seamless entry into the sea, it’s the go-to spot while at anchor. Just steps above, the Marina Terrace serves handcrafted cocktails and light bites with stunning views.
THE LIVING ROOM
Bold shades of blue reflecting the sea provide a vibrant accent to the yacht’s gathering place, with its chic, comfortable furnishings and library with travel guides and best sellers. Diffused lighting transforms the space into a cocktail lounge with piano bar, and dancing and live music later on.
THE OBSERVATION LOUNGE
Top-deck views erase the borders between land and sea, an inspired setting for lounging, cocktails or socializing. At twilight, the space is transformed into a venue with cocktails and live entertainment, extending into a late-night hangout.
An infinity oasis of blue is just steps away from The Pool House, where guests can enjoy all-day dining. Frozen treats and refreshing water mistings pamper guests on the sun loungers and banquettes or soaking in the whirlpools. A spacious venue for deck parties and open-air movies.
THE RITZ-CARLTON SPA®
Exceptional massages, facials, and a variety of locally inspired treatments await you within our serene onboard oasis. Enjoy a rejuvenating spa treatment in one of five private rooms, or al fresco, paired with ocean views. Plus, a full-service Beauty Lounge, Gentleman’s Grooming Salon, and a sauna, steam room and quiet zones allow you to truly disconnect. Reservations required, additional fee applies.
The Gym is home to a health and wellness program that integrates fitness and spa with lectures and nutrition that can be customized for each guest. From personal training in the Gym to sunrise yoga and mat pilates in the Fitness Studio, each voyage has opportunities to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Cap off your day with a premium cognac in this intimate lounge with its comfortable furnishings. An excellent selection of premium, hand-rolled cigars are showcased in the state-of-the-art humidor.
From exclusive sportswear and branded apparel to jewelry and leather goods, leading labels offer enticing options. In select ports, your shopping experience is further enhanced by bespoke collaborations with local artisans who come on board to showcase their offerings.
Entertainment and Enrichment
Like the yacht itself, entertainment and enrichment onboard are an intimate affair. Our in-house classical and jazz musicians will provide highly personal performances across the many venues onboard throughout each voyage. The yacht’s leisurely pace offers the freedom and flexibility for our team to arrange fully immersive cultural experiences both onboard and ashore. From partnerships with the local arts and music communities, to discussion led by renowned experts and lecturers, each experience is designed to stir the senses in an uncommonly profound way.
Families exploring the world together are welcome aboard The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. With its own dedicated space on board, Ritz-Kids® is an educational and fun-filled program that encourages children to explore the world around them. Enhanced services will be available during holidays and summer months.
ONBOARD DRESS CODE
The dress code on board the yacht reflects the luxury lifestyle of The Ritz-Carlton® and casual freedom of a yachting vacation. During the day for breakfast and lunch, the dress code is Yacht Casual, where shirts, shoes, and bathing suit cover ups are required when not at the pool. During the evening for dinner bathing suits and sleeveless t-shirts are not permitted and shirts and shoes are required throughout the yacht. In our specialty dining restaurant by Sven Elverfeld, the dress code is Yacht Sophisticated – collared shirts are not required, but highly recommended. There are no formal nights on board.
Canada and New England Voyages
In autumn, nature paints this coastal landscape red and gold just for your viewing pleasure. Every voyage is an opportunity to discover storied waterways, quaint fishing villages and wildlife in its natural habitat.
Visit the eastern seaboard of North America in the autumn months when nature comes alive in vivid color. Sail past rolling farmland, towering evergreen forests and rugged coastlines, and up great waterways like the St Lawrence River. The ports of the Canadian Maritimes—Charlottetown, Lunenburg and St. Andrews—reveal their seafaring past and love affair with the sea. Halifax blends historic and cosmopolitan charm, while outside of the city nature lovers thrill at bear and moose sightings and whale watching. The coast of Maine captivates with its picturesque harbors, iconic lighthouses and lobsters pulled fresh from the sea. Savor the art and culture of Montreal, the colonial history of Boston and the buzz of New York City. With The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, your journey is always unhurried, with plenty of overnights and opportunities to see the ports come alive.
Luxury Caribbean Voyages
Sugar sand, aquamarine water and colorful coral are just the start of a voyage through the islands in the sun. Adventure, history, festivals, customs and culture all combine to create the free and easy Caribbean experience.
History’s seafaring nations Britain, The Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Sweden and France have all left their unique mark on the islands. But an appreciation for the beauty of their island home is what unites the laid-back natives of the Caribbean. In this setting, you can’t help but feel unhurried and happy. Sailing the warm Caribbean waters is the perfect way to experience this region, greeting every day with freedom and fresh eyes. From the pulsating tin drums of Tobago to the pastel-hued colonial buildings of Willemstad, from the breathtaking sunsets of Antigua to your new friends, the whales of Samaná, the Caribbean brings a smile to your face and peace to your soul before even stepping ashore.
Luxury Mediterranean Voyages
Colorful coastlines and turquoise waters welcome you to the Mediterranean. Sail into hidden harbors, then step ashore and immerse yourself in the stories of legendary explorers and the stunning, romantic beauty of villages that have been etched out by history.
Rich with history, with monuments and ruins dating back to the earliest civilizations, the Mediterranean moves at a slower pace than its northern neighbors. Time-honored traditions dating back centuries intersect with the present day in the most engaging way. Discover the cliff-clinging pastel houses of Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast, the blue-domed whitewashed churches of Santorini, the massive columns of the Pantheon, or the priceless treasures of the Vatican Museums. With harbors framed by limestone cliffs, charming cobblestone fishing villages and miles of pristine beaches, relax and experience it all on a voyage with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection.
Baltic and Northern Europe Voyages
From medieval ruins to modern marvels, experience the full sweep of history in one of the most beautifully engaging regions in the world. Every journey allows an immersive experience ashore in bustling ports, charming villages, historic cities and natural beauty.
Beyond the wonders of nature, Europe is steeped in history. So many sites tell the stories of how the world has evolved to the modern era. Whether it’s the imperial palaces of St. Petersburg, the WWII landing beaches of Normandy or the wooden stave churches of Scandinavia that capture your imagination, the breadth and depth of European history can be found at every turn. Yet modern Europe is impressive, too. Visit the Oslo Opera House and the Guggenheim Bilboa, the culinary luminaries of Copenhagen and the world-class shopping of London’s Regent Street. Mix in Norway’s fjords, Iceland’s glaciers, and Amsterdam’s canals and Northern Europe stirs a passion for discovery. A voyage with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection gives you the unrivaled freedom to explore.
Find peace of mind on board, knowing that every detail of your surroundings has been considered. From in-suite espresso machines and premium beverages to small bites all hours of the day, a higher tier of mini-luxuries are yours to enjoy with our compliments.

What’s Not Included In The Upfront Price?
Below is a description of the things that are not included in the upfront cost of the cruise:
The cost of airfare is not included in the upfront price of the cruise, but is almost always available for an additional charge. We’ll ask you where you are flying from and quote you the cruise line’s price or the best available price.
Alcoholic Beverages & Some Non-Alcoholic Beverages
Alcoholic beverages are not included in your cruise price, and since soft drinks come over the bar there is charge for them as well. Specialty coffees are also almost always additional. However, Some of our luxury cruises lines may include this feature.
Your personal service staff works hard for you while you’re enjoying your cruise, so please tip them before you disembark. Most cruise lines make it easy for you by automatically adding gratuities to your shipboard account, which is usually about $10 to 12 per person, per day. This amount covers your cabin steward and the waiters and assistants who have served you all over the ship.
Some Dining Options
Alternative dining options are all the rage onboard contemporary ships these days and the cruise lines have a couple of different ways of charging you extra for them. For all restaurants other than the main dining room you should expect to find that reservations are required. There is a fee for that reservation that usually runs from $10-$40 per person and the gratuity for the meal may be additional.
Shore excursions are a very important part of your experience in each port of call, especially if you’ve decided to take the adventure route.
Your ‘welcome aboard’ photo is your first encounter with the ubiquitous ship photographers. They’ll be on hand to capture all the fun and excitement, and then sell it back to you for $20 for each 5 x 7.
Spa Treatments & Salon Services
Arrangements with onboard spas and salons has become one of the hottest new things with the cruise lines in the past few years as passengers are focusing more and more on their well-being.
