After a year-long delay, the first of the Ritz-Carlton's luxury yacht collection, the Evrima, officially set sail on Oct. 15, transporting eager passengers from Barcelona, Spain, to France. The ship will stop at several ports along the way, including Mallorca, Saint-Tropez, and Antibes, before guests finally disembark in Nice on Oct. 22.

The passengers can experience a new, luxury kind of experience aboard the ship, which the company describes as a blend of the lifestyle of a Ritz-Carlton hotel and the casual freedom of yachting.

 "The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection is revolutionizing the luxury cruising industry, creating an entirely unique category designed for those in search of unmatched getaways, highly curated itineraries, insider access, and a level of personalization previously unseen in the space," said Douglas Prothero, CEO of the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, in a news release. "Every element of the luxury yachting experience was considered when designing and creating Evrima, and we are excited to deliver unforgettable journeys for both longtime cruisers and those who are new to the industry."

The Evrima perfectly encapsulates what the Ritz-Carlton brand is all about—luxury. There are 149 suites on board, a high percentage of them being larger than average, as well as two-story lofts and duplex accommodations. They all feature a private terrace, floor-to-ceiling windows, taller-than-average ceilings, and amenities similar to what guests find at traditional Ritz-Carlton properties—including luxury linens and toiletries.

Travelers have several options for food aboard the ship. Evrima’s signature restaurant, S.E.A., is perfect for a specialty eating experience and was curated and designed by chef Sven Elverfeld of Aqua, the three Michelin-starred restaurant at Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg. The menu features European-inspired eats. Guests can also dine at Talaat Nam for Southeast Asian dishes, The Evrima Room for locally-inspired meals, and Mistral for a taste of the Mediterranean.

Passengers interested in relaxation can take a trip to the Ritz-Carlton Spa, which offers therapeutic spa treatments with ESPA products. The Salon is perfect for those looking for beauty and hair services and sits next door to The Barber, which offers close shaves and facials.

The yacht is specially designed at 190-meters and features several bars, a pool, and a gym. It is the first of three ships to launch from The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. After this inaugural sailing, the ship will travel to destinations worldwide, including the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America, each cruise ranging from seven to 11 nights.

At each port, passengers can choose a shore excursion that suits their interests, or they can customize their experiences with the help of the Concierge Ashore. Local and expert guides will lead these excursions, and passengers can choose from various activities, from yoga on the beach to exploring UNESCO World Heritage sites.
