Evrima, the first yacht from The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, will cruise a variety of destinations depending on the season, including the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Central America and South America. The intimate size of the vessel allows the yacht to call on locations typically not accessible to larger cruise ships, including Saint-Tropez, Ibiza and St. Barts.
With a relaxed pace, which includes both overnight and daytime ports of call, guests will be offered a curated collection of experiences.
The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will also collaborate with Marriott International luxury brand hotels worldwide on unique activations for guests. Travelers will additionally have the option to extend their pre- and post-voyage getaways, redeeming points at Marriott International hotels to explore a range of cities and towns across a vast number of destinations.
The experience onboard Evrima will perfectly blend the lifestyle of The Ritz-Carlton resorts with the casual freedom of a yachting vacation. It will reflect the sublime comfort and unparalleled level of individualized service for which the iconic Ritz-Carlton brand is recognized, with one of the highest space and service ratios at sea. The specially designed yacht measures 190-meters (624 feet) and features 149 suites.
Guests will enjoy a range of programming including a thoughtfully curated menu of spa treatments, watersports from the yacht’s marina and Evrima’s signature restaurant, S.E.A., designed by chef Sven Elverfeld of Aqua, the three Michelin-starred restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg in Germany.
In each destination, guests can choose from a selection of exclusive experiences within The Shore Collection that align with their interests or utilize the services of the Concierge Ashore to customize their own private tours. By working with local guides selected for their insider knowledge, guests will enjoy a highly personalized and immersive journey while exploring the culture of each destination.
