The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection is now accepting bookings for the 2023 Mediterranean season deployment of its ultra-luxury cruise product.
The program spans the French Riviera, Amalfi Coast, Balearic Islands, the Adriatic Coast and the Canary Islands.
All 14 departures, ranging from seven- to 12-nights duration, are offered on the yet-to-launch ship, Evrima, between late April until the second half of August, and then again from mid-October to mid-November 2023.
Among the new ports to be explored are Melilla in Spain; Catania in Sicily; Mindelo and Praia in Cape Verde; and La Gomera in the Canary Islands.
“We are excited to introduce our 2023 Mediterranean itineraries,” said Douglas Prothero, Chief Executive Officer for The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. “We continue to see incredible interest in exploring these highly sought after destinations and are thrilled to be able to offer an extended season with more opportunities for our guests to immerse themselves in the unique, vibrant cultures of the Mediterranean.”
The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection says the itineraries promise more flexibility for guests’ time on land, with overnight calls in Casablanca, Saint-Tropez, Dubrovnik and more. Guests are able to explore the famed nightlife scene of Ibiza or explore the casinos of Monte Carlo, swim in the enticing Comino’s Blue Lagoon of Malta or take in the vibrant colours of the Amalfi Coast.
The season begins with a 10-night cruise from Lisbon to Barcelona on 27 April, which makes port calls at Casablanca and Tangier in Morocco, as well as Malaga, Melilla and Valencia in Spain, including multi-day stops in Casablanca and Valencia. Prices start at US$8,900 per person plus taxes, fees and port expenses.
Seven-night sailings in July (between Valletta/Rome; Rome/Nice; Nice/Barcelona) are priced from US$6,200 per person.
Rounding out the 2023 Mediterranean season will be three Canary Islands voyages; a 9-night voyage from Barcelona to Tenerife on 22 October; a week-long Tenerife round-trip departure on 31 October; and the season-ending 12-night Tenerife to Bridgetown, Barbados cruise (that includes eight days at sea) on 7 November.
Currently, Evrima‘s 2021 inaugural voyage is scheduled for 10 November from San Juan to Castries in the Caribbean.
