The iconic Ritz-Carlton has laid the first stone for a new era of yacht-style cruising with the unveiling of their new yacht collection. Intertwining the historic background and luxury essence of The Ritz-Carlton with the freedom of a yachting holiday, travellers will get to enjoy unique experiences and immerse themselves in the history and culture of each destination. The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection consists of three custom-built yachts, with the first guests aboard Evrima, the first yacht of the collection this year.
Evrima’s Design & Suites
Evrima, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel’s stunning first yacht, has been tailor-made and measures a fantastic 190 metres and can accommodate up to 298 passengers. The yacht also boasts 149 suites and the two-floor loft suites are definitely a treat.
All suites are nothing short of the utmost luxury that all The Ritz-Carlton Hotels offer, with their usual luxurious amenities of a king bed, double vanity bathroom, luxury linens and more. However, what really makes these suites even more spectacular are the private terraces and floor to ceiling windows that aim to leave guests in awe of the picturesque views and feeling fully content and relaxed in the most airy and expansive guestrooms at sea. Selected suites also offer the option to be combined into larger open spaces through a blind wall, which allows for further flexibility.
Food & Beverages
Apart from the suites full of luxury, Evrima offers a range of exceptional culinary dining options, with locally inspired creations in The Evrima Room, Southeast Asian Cuisine and a sit-down sushi bar at Talaat Naam. For more specialty dining, guests can enjoy gastronomic excellence at S.E.A, designed by Chef Sven Elverfeld of Aqua, the three Michelin-starred restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg and more.
Continuing the fun onboard, there are many activities to keep you occupied, with access to a range of elevated programming and amenities. For those looking for the ultimate relaxation, you can enjoy a thoughtfully curated menu of ESPA and 111SKIN spa treatments, a sauna and steam room and more. For the adrenaline lovers, enjoy the infinity pool, fitness studio, water sports from the yacht’s marina (at anchor) and more. As you indulge yourself in all the fun filled activities, there’s a host of entertainment on board, including intimate performances by in-house jazz and classical musicians, discussions led by renowned experts, and partnerships with local arts and music communities.
If you’re looking for some family fun, there is a dedicated space on board for Ritz Kids, a programme especially for young guests between the ages of four and twelves. Here kids, along with their families can nurture their curiosity and love for discovery, with a keen emphasis on marine conservation.

To get a fully immersive experience of the culture and history of your destination, you can choose from a selection of unique experiences within The Shore that align with their interests or utilise the services of the Concierge Ashore to customise your own private tours.

Each itinerary is different with some select itineraries offerings guests the opportunity to deepen their experience mid-voyage through an overnight tour, which promises unforgettable experiences that full immerse you into the culture of your destination. Don’t worry though, you’ll re-join the yacht at the next destination shortly after.
Explore the world with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection
Most voyages will range from 7-10 nights, calling at both intimate and signature ports of call and no two journeys will be the same. Each journey will be distinctive, allowing guests the opportunity to explore and experience without repeating a destination. Depending on the season, Evrima is set to visit the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. Destinations are sprawled all over and range from Spain’s Balearic Islands, the French Riviera, to Aruba and the coastlines of Costa Rica. With Evrima being more niche in comparison to major cruises, it also has access to some of the most sought-after ports of call, such as Mykonos, Saint-Tropez, and St. Barts.
