The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection has opened reservations for its newest yacht, Luminara, for its inaugural summer 2025 sailing season.
Ritz-Carlton says the summer 2025 season will see 53 itineraries to a handful of popular destinations. Additionally, the brand will sail to Northern Europe for the first time, with destinations including Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and Oslo.
Let’s take a look at the itineraries!

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection Evrima boasts 149 suites, including a private terrace and can hold up to 298 guests. This yacht will offer itineraries such as Lisbon-to-Amsterdam and roundtrips to Athens and Venice.
Ilma will have 224 spacious suites and can accommodate up to 448 guests. This ship will traverse the North and Baltic Seas, with trips to cities like Reykjavík, Lisbon, and more.
Finally, the Luminara will measure 794 feet with space for 452 guests. With 226 suites, the yacht will feature fine dining, a wine vault, and The Ritz-Carlton Spa. This ship will offer 7-night Barcelona and Rome roundtrips.
“In a short time, our world-class itineraries have attracted guests who are new to the category and interested in exploring new horizons and cultures with the assurance of The Ritz-Carlton brand,” said Tina Edmundson, President, Luxury, Marriott International.
“We are thrilled to have created experiences that redefine luxury cruising. Endless explorations await as we prepare to launch our second yacht, Ilma, in 2024, and our third, Luminara, in 2025,” Edmundson continued.
Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection first debuted the brand in 2022 with Evrima. Its second yacht, Ilma, will debut this year, while Luminara is slated to set sail in 2025.
About The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection
Marriott debuted The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection back in the fall of 2022. This small-ship luxury line offers sailings to the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, and now Northern Europe.
True to the brand, you’ll experience a high level of service and amenities on and off the yacht — plus, you’ll have access to 3 types of shore excursions.
The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection participates in the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program, which means you can earn and redeem points for your sailings.
You’ll earn 5x Marriott points per $1 spent on The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection fares and any hotel packages, which include participating Marriott locations booked through The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. And you’ll likely earn a ton of points — given that sailings on the yachts range from $4,500 up to $15,300!
This is exciting news, as Marriott has finally opened reservations for Luminara and released sailing details for the summer of 2025.
No matter which option you choose, you’ll experience a luxury Ritz-Carlton experience at sea — but be prepared to fork over a significant amount of cash.
