Ritz-Carlton® Yacht Collection Information
Explore your world with enriching voyages to the world's most exceptional localesFrom signature dining to exquisitely appointed staterooms, fine linens, and enriching shipboard lectures, the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection makes a splash as it enters into the world of luxury cruising. Enjoy extensive personal attention paid to your every need and detail of your day – every yacht in service boasts nearly as many staff members as guests. The world leader in innovative hospitality further pushes the envelope with larger suites and staterooms, expansive private terraces, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
One notable feature of each yacht is its Marina and Marina Terrace. Located right at the water's edge, at the aft of the ship, the platform folds into the water to allow cruisers their own private beach. Lounge by the water, take a dip in the sea, float out on water toys – the Marina makes it all possible. Perhaps better yet, just above is a bar that serves hand-crafted cocktails and long with light (but delicious) fare.
What's Included in this Luxury Cruise?
It's peace of mind, cost savings, and a better overall experience: a voyage on a Ritz-Carlton yacht all-inclusive. From the moment you step onboard, you'll be treated to a wide-ranging collection of included services that make your adventure even more exciting.

What's the Food Like?
Treat your palate to the finest cuisine you'll find at sea – or on land. World-renown chefs whip up specialties including regionally inspired cuisines. Al fresco dining venues allow you to enjoy a meal with the tropical sun beaming down and a warm ocean breeze providing accompaniment. Menus have hand-crafted by Chef Sven Elverfeld of Aqua (a restaurant located at the Ritz-Carlton, along with its three Michelin stars). If you're in the mood for fine cuisine from the comfort of your suite, never fear – all yachts offer in-suite dining for you to enjoy.
Venues include the main dining area (spacious and thoughtfully designed to facilitate privacy and social connections), as well as the Talaat Nam (creative interpretations of Southeast Asian cuisine), Mistral (specializing in romantic, al fresco meals with seafood served right off the grill), and the Pool House (perfect for early risers and late-night dinners seeking casual but delicious food in an open air space).
A Unique Onboard Lifestyle
The Ritz-Carlton Collection features many shipboard features that will delight and impress. All of it reflects the line's philosophy: laid back and casual, with a style that doesn't sacrifice freedom and flexibility. Above all else, the shipboard features are designed to make the most of your natural surroundings (at sea or in port). Think walls of glass that turn your surroundings into works of art, a wonderfully appointed Living Room that marries elegance with comfort, and a noteworthy space ratio of more than 89 feet afforded per guest.
Here are some incredible venues that are particularly representative of the attention to detail found on each yacht.
The Observation Lounge is an inspired locale that delivers top-deck views of the land and sea. As night falls, the lounge comes alive with conversation and entertainment, as well as fresh custom-made (and custom-designed) cocktails. Look out and enjoy rolling clouds and swelling seas.
The Pool allows you to take a dip and enjoy the open-air sights of the ocean. Or instead lie on one of the many available sun loungers. The nearby Pool House offers all-day dining, while sunbathers can also enjoy frozen treats, refreshing water mist, or soaks in whirlpools. In addition, this space is the perfect place to enjoy deck parties and movies.
The Ritz-Carlton Spa delivers everything you'd expect from one of the world's leaders in comfort. Enjoy exceptional massages and facials, in addition to several locally inspired treatments to heal yourself, body and mind. Also experience a beauty lounge, a gentleman's grooming salon, a sauna, and a steam room.
The Gym marks wellness as a cornerstone of your cruise. This beautiful venue offers floor-to-ceiling views out across the cruise ship. Inside, you'll enjoy personal training, nutrition coaching, sunrise yoga, and mat pilates.
Ritz Kids is the Collection's own youth program with its own dedicated space on board. Treat you kids to an educational (yet fun filled!) environment that encourages children to explore the world around them. From learning about local regions and customs to studying marine biology that the high seas provides, kids will remain engaged and excited throughout the length of your voyage.
What's The Dress Code on a Ritz Carlton Cruise?
Because the Ritz-Carlton Collection is focused on the yacht experience, expect the dress code to match the philosophy. During the day (for breakfast and lunch), expect Yacht Casual to be the dress code: shirts, shoes, and bathing suit cover ups are required – provided, of course, that you're not at the pool. For dinner, no sleeveless t-shirts or bathing suits are permitted, and shirts and shoes are required throughout the yacht. While at the specialty restaurant, which features inspired dining by Chef Sven Elverfled, the dress code is Yacht Sophisticated. This means that collared shirts are highly recommended.
