“It is exciting to expand our unparalleled portfolio of travel experiences with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection,” said David Flueck, Senior Vice President, Global Loyalty, Marriott International. “Marriott Bonvoy offers more unique accommodations than any program and this new offering is an incredible addition for our most discerning members.”

Marriott Bonvoy elite members will enjoy an elevated luxury experience during their voyage, including a private reception upon boarding and other bespoke recognition during their sailing.

“We are thrilled to announce that The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will join the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio, creating a truly unrivalled offering for our members and guests,” said Chris Gabaldon, Senior Vice President, Luxury Brands for Marriott International. “The Ritz-Carlton brand continues to drive innovation within the hospitality industry, creating the one-of-a-kind experiences we know the modern affluent traveller seeks. As the brand continues to evolve, the participation of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection in Marriott Bonvoy encourages both longtime Ritz-Carlton loyalists, those who are new to the brand, and guests across Marriott International’s portfolio, to earn and redeem points while exploring this incredibly exciting, elevated and immersive travel experience.”

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection is the latest accommodation under Marriott Bonvoy, joining 30 hotel brands with 7,900 properties across 138 countries and territories around the world, including the company’s all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean, and in addition to 44,000 curated premium and luxury vacation rentals from Homes and Villas by Marriott International. As a participant in Marriott Bonvoy, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection thus now provides members with another opportunity to earn and redeem points.

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. Travellers 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.
