The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection has ordered its second ship the Hijos De J. Barreras shipyard in Vigo, Spain announced. Previously the cruise line had announced its plans to build a total of three 298-passenger ships. 

Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collections first ship is scheduled for deliver later this year. The company decided to get into the luxury cruise business with the “goal … to introduce the legendary Ritz-Carlton service to luxury yachting, while also redefining curated travel at sea,” says Lisa Holladay, Global Brand Leader for The Ritz-Carlton. “An increased demand in the luxury cruise space inspired us to capitalize on the niche market of small ship cruising, which we are excited to bring to our guests.”

With under 300 passengers, the ships are designed like yachts with sleek lines, and all-suites accommodations. The yacht will feature high end dining including a restaurant from Sven Elverfeld of Aqua (the three Michelin-starred restaurant in the Ritz-Carlton, Wolfsburg).

Cruises are all-inclusive with 24-hour in-suite dining, beverages in-suite and at all bars & restaurants, WiFi, entertainment and enrichment programs, and gratuities. The Collection boasts a space to passenger ratio of more than 89 square feet, making it one of the most spacious lines sailing.  Fare start at around $5,000 per passenger.
