The design studio behind the first 190-metre all-inclusive superyacht cruise vessel from the Ritz-Carlton hotel group has released new renderings of the interior.
Design firm Tillberg Design of Sweden has penned the interior of the group's first "superyacht" in collaboration with Ritz-Carlton’s in-house team.
The first superyacht experience cruise is due to depart in 2020. It comes after the group's first superyacht vessel was launched at the Spanish Hijos De J Barreras shipyard in October 2018. The vessel’s keel laying ceremony was marked in January.
The 190-metre vessel is set to embark on its inaugural cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Bridgetown in February 2020. The 10-night programme will follow the arc of the Caribbean islands and include stop-offs in Santo Domingo, San Juan, Charlestown and Fort-de-France.
The vessel will accommodate 290 passengers in 149 suites, including two 159 square metre penthouse suites.
The company also revealed that the “yachts” will be available for private charter outside of the cruise programme, which will visit the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Northern Europe.
According to new renderings, the first vessel will feature a number of luxury superyacht features, including a swimming pool, spa and gym to create an “all-inclusive superyacht experience”.
There will also be an “onboard dress code” in operation ranging from “yacht casual” to “yacht sophisticated”. The result will be “the slower pace lifestyle of a superyacht,” according to the company.
President and chief operating officer of the Ritz-Carlton hotel company Herve Humler said, “This unique combination of yachting and cruising will usher in a new way of luxury travel for guests seeking to discover the world in a relaxed, casually elegant and comfortable atmosphere with the highest level of personalised service.”
The company emphasised that all renderings are artistic concepts and that "all features, plans and specifications are subject to change without notice".
