Listen Now: Ritz Carlton Launches Cruises… And You Won’t Believe The Price.
The luxury hotel chain the Ritz Carlton is heading to the high seas.
The still to be named 298 passenger ship was launched in Vigo, Spain where it has been under construction. It will now undergo months of finishing work before entering service in early 2020.
The new Ritz Carlton yacht collection is designed to defy all cruise stereotypes. It will include 149 large suites each with their own private terrace. Common spaces will be designed for comfort and relaxation but if that’s not enough there is also an on-board spa and multiple high end dining options.
The Ritz Carlton company says this will be a unique combination of yachting and cruising meant to introduce people to a new way to discover the world. Everything on board has been carefully created to give people the best experience possible.
But it won’t come cheap. Starting voyages range from $3,100 for four nights to $10,000 for twelve nights depending on location. But no matter where you’re heading you’ll be arriving in style.
