The first of three planned luxury superyachts from the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, which is owned by the famous hotel chain, has embarked on its maiden voyage. The yacht was supposed to set sail three and a half years ago, but only now has it started its maiden voyage.

She set sail from Barcelona, ??Spain, on October 15, embarking on a seven-day cruise that will end in Nice, France. This yacht is 190 meters long and can accommodate 298 passengers. It has 149 cabins with a private terrace, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows.

Travelers can enjoy the pool, various wines, Ritz-Carlton Spa services and entertainment offered by the nightclub. On Mediterranean trips, a cruise costs $6,400, while a Caribbean cruise costs $5,100 per person. When it comes to accommodation, you can choose between standard cabins, two-story suites and a spacious suite with a private jacuzzi.

The service on the superyacht is top-notch, and entertainment programs for children are also provided. The yacht, named Evrima, which means "discovery" in Greek, will sail the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, and will visit locations in Central and South America.

Cruises will last from seven to ten days. Two more yachts are under construction, Ilma and Luminara. They are built at the Chantiers de l'Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France. All three yachts will be available for private charter, and the price of such an arrangement has not been disclosed.

A hybrid between luxury cruising and yachting.

"The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection is revolutionizing the luxury cruising industry, creating an entirely unique category designed for those in search of unmatched getaways, highly curated itineraries, insider access and a level of personalization previously unseen in the space," Douglas Prothero, chief executive officer for the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection said in a statement.

The superyacht's delay is the result of problems in the supply chain, as well as the situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Earlier, the Four Seasons chain announced the construction of a 207-meter long superyacht with 14 decks and 95 suites, and it should be ready by 2025.
