Luxury Seas: Ritz-Carlton’s New Superyacht Is Setting Sail This Month - Travel

The seven-night cruise will take up to 298 passengers, from Barcelona to Nice on October 15.

After nearly a three-year delay, Ritz-Carlton’s newest ship, the Evrima, expands its Yacht Collection. The seven-night cruise will take guests up to 298 passengers, from Barcelona, Spain to Nice, Italy on October 15. 

According to Bloomberg, the long delay was caused by pandemic-exacerbated supply chain troubles and construction halts in Spanish shipyards. Because of this, the launch date was pushed back eight times. However, its pre-booked passengers waited patiently. In fact, many of the guests will be first-time cruise passengers.

“We are moving into a space we believe many of the affluent consumers have wanted to go but have not had the brand to support them,” says Chris Gabaldon, senior vice president, luxury brands for Marriott International, Inc. told the publication. 

Brand innovation

 “The millions of Ritz-Carlton customers are ready for the next innovation of the brand, and they are demonstrating, in terms of bookings, that they are willing to come with us.”

The Evrima’s amenities include everything from cabins with king-size beds and private outdoor decks overlooking the sea to
spa and aesthetic treatments.

At the helm of the Evrima’s architecture is design firm Tillberg of Sweden. “It’s taking Ritz-Carlton casual modern luxury to sea,” Douglas Prothero, the founder and CEO of the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection tells NDTV.. “It’s not trying to be something in cruise.”

The amenities include everything from cabins with king-size beds and private outdoor decks overlooking the sea to spa and aesthetic treatments. The latter even offers a $395 non-surgical lift facial. 

For dining, the menus are curated by three-michelin-starred chefs, such as Sven Elverfeld of Ritz-Carlton Germany’s Aqua.
