This Week in Cruise: New in Luxury

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection

There have been a number of new developments in luxury cruises this week. Take a look.

The new cruise brand from Ritz-Carlton, The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, launched the brochure for its debut season this week. With the official season starting a bit later than planned, in February 2020 instead of 2019, the new brand will offer shore excursions emphasizing culture, active exploration and cuisine. Itineraries will range from seven to 10 days.

Also this week Regent Seven Seas Cruises opened bookings for the new Seven Seas Splendor, which launches in February 2020. With 750 guests, the all-suite, all-balcony ship will have a similar design to its sibling ship, Seven Seas Explorer. The first sailing, beginning on February 7, 2020, will be a 14-night transatlantic itinerary from Barcelona to Miami.
