The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, which will begin its sailings to the Caribbean next year, is joining Marriott Bonvoy.
After multiple delays, the Ritz-Carlton Yacht, MS Evrima is set to begin sailing in May 2022. Ahead of the launch, Marriott has announced some exciting news for loyalty members: The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will participate in the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program.
That means Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and redeem points for voyages on the company’s boutique cruise ships.
“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 said the company’s elite members will enjoy an “elevated luxury experience” during their sailings, including private reception upon boarding and other amenities.
“We are thrilled to announce that The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will join the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio, creating a truly unrivaled offering for our members and guests,” said Chris Gabaldon, Senior Vice President for 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 traveler seeks. As the iconic 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 first Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection sailing will be aboard the Evrima yacht, and is scheduled to sail from May 6 to May 17, 2022, from Lisbon, Portugal.
