Ritz-Carlton’s Luxury Superyacht Cruise, Priced at $6,400 a Week, Has Finally Embarked

The long-awaited superyacht cruise from Ritz-Carlton has finally set sail, three and a half years after its initial planned launch. The first of three custom-built yachts, Evrima, embarked on a seven-night journey from Barcelona, Spain to Nice, France on October 15.

The 190-meter vessel can host up to 298 passengers and boasts 149 suites each with a private terrace and floor-to-ceiling windows. The yacht also features an infinity pool, a wine vault, a Ritz-Carlton Spa, a nightclub, and its own marina.

Prices for a one-week stay start at $6,400 per person for Mediterranean voyages and $5,100 per person for Caribbean voyages. Accommodation options range from standard cabins to two-story loft-style apartments and a spacious 1,091-square-foot owner’s suite with a private hot tub.

Guests can expect top-tier service, fine dining experiences, complimentary water sports, and onboard entertainment. There is also a dedicated children’s facility with a comprehensive program for kids aged four to 12.

Evrima will sail to various destinations throughout the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. Most cruises will last between seven to 10 nights. Two more luxury yachts, Ilma and Luminara, are currently being built at the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France.

Ritz-Carlton first announced its plans to venture into the luxury yachting world in 2017. Douglas Prothero, CEO for the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, stated that the venture is revolutionizing the luxury cruising industry by creating a unique category designed for those seeking unmatched getaways and highly curated itineraries.

All three superyachts will be available for private charter. While Ritz-Carlton has not disclosed the charter price, it is expected to be quite steep. The launch of Evrima was delayed several times due to supply chain issues and the global pandemic.

Earlier this month, the Four Seasons also announced plans for its first vessel, a 14-deck, 207-meter-long superyacht with 95 suites, scheduled to enter service in late 2025.
