Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection opens sales for the Luminara

Sales are now open for cruises on Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection’s third ship, the Luminara. 

The ship is scheduled to sail a seven-day Barcelona-Rome (Civitavecchia) inaugural voyage on July 1, 2025, with calls at Saint-Tropez, France; Monte Carlo, Monaco; Ajaccio, Corsica; and Alghero and Porto Cervo in Sardinia. 

The Luminara, meaning “light,” will accommodate up to 452 guests and include a signature Ritz-Carlton spa, an extensive wine collection and an expanded marina. The ship will also have a new high-category accommodation called the Residential Suite. 

The Luminara will have notes of soft brown oak and and touches of rich red, navy and green. There will be Calcutta marble and leather accents throughout. 

Inspired by the aesthetics of a private yacht, the ship’s exterior was designed by Helsinki-based design studio Aivan. Interior design comes from Toronto-based luxury design firm Chapi Chap Design, London-based architectural and design firm AD Associates, and lighting designer DPA.

Ilma will sail Northern Europe in 2025

Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection also announced that the Ilma, its second ship, will sail in Northern Europe in summer 2025. 

The ship will sail nine voyages in the North and Baltic seas, with port calls including Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Reykjavik, Belfast, Bergen, and Antwerp. 

The Ilma is expected to debut in September 2024, sailing Mediterranean cruises. Then the Ilma will reposition to the Caribbean for the following winter.

Ritz-Carlton Yacht debuted its first ship, the Evrima, in October 2022. The Evrima is in the Caribbean now, will head to the Med in April and return to the Caribbean next November.
