The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. is single-handedly revolutionizing the hotel market with its latest development – The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. This luxury yacht hotel offers its guests an enhanced cruise experience, as it combines the renowned service and luxury of The Ritz-Carlton with the leisurely style of a cruise.
Lisa Holladay, Global Brand Leader for the Ritz-Carlton says, “As the first luxury hotel company to bring the legendary service and ambience of its resorts to sea,” the Ritz-Carlton is diversifying its property portfolio. The onboard experience will reflect the exceptional level of individualized guest service up to par with the Ritz-Carlton brand, having one of the greatest staff to guest service ratios in the cruise industry.
“The opening of reservations marks an exciting milestone for The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, which is set to redefine luxury at sea,” said Dug Prothero, CEO of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. “Whether you are looking for culture, adventure, or the chance to go off the beaten path, we are thrilled to be able to invite guests to explore the world with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection.”
The specially-designed yacht will measure 190-meters, accommodate up to 298 passengers and feature 149 suites, each with its own private terrace. The yacht will also feature two 158-square-meter lavish Owner’s suites, each with its own private whirlpool, modern craftsmanship and interior finishes jointly designed by The Ritz-Carlton and leading design firm Tillberg Design of Sweden.
It will be interesting to see if luxury yachts become the new face of the hotel industry. And if any high-seas success by Ritz-Carlton inspires similar hospitality brands to incorporate such properties into their hotel holdings.
