Relaxed yachting with immersive experiences
It is an exciting time for sophisticated cruisers. New cruise lines are entering the market while existing lines are adding new and more modern ships giving us a lot of choices.
One of the new lines is the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection from the award-winning Ritz-Carlton brand. Known for personalized service, elevated dining and luxury accommodations on land, the Yacht Collection extends the Ritz-Carlton gold standard of service and luxury to the sea.
When pricing luxury cruises it is important that you compare apples-to-apples (actually this is true for all cruises). Some cruise lines have several additional costs that will increase your total cruise cost above the base fare. In addition to ‘mandatory’ extra fees (like gratuities), most people pay extra for such things as Wi-Fi, shore excursions, soda (no soda isn't free on most ships), alcoholic drinks, specialty coffees, specialty restaurants, and more. Plus, you have to add the cost of flights to and from the cruise ports, and the cost of at least one day for a hotel before the cruise to minimize airline delays which could cause you to miss your cruise.
It shouldn’t really be a surprise, but as Baby Boomers & Gen Xers have watched their kids move out, have become proficient cruisers, are seeking new experiences, have more free time and money, and desire a more sophisticated cruise experience, they are increasingly wanting to up their cruise game.
