The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection (RCYC) is now a member of Marriott International’s travel program, Marriott Bonvoy.
Marriott Bonvoy members are now able to earn and redeem points for voyages, slated to commence 6 May 2022.
“Marriott Bonvoy offers more unique accommodations than any program and this new offering is an incredible addition for our most discerning members,” said David Flueck, Senior Vice President, Global Loyalty, Marriott International.

Evrima, the first yacht from The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, will cruise the Mediterranean, 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. 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.
