    The Ritz Cruise Ship

    The Anti-Cruise Ship

    We knew that someone was going to reinvent the tired cruise line model, but who would have guessed it would be The Ritz?  We rather love the design of this yacht, sleek and sexy; for style it gets an A+. It’s a manageable size, like a pleasantly-sized urban hotel: 139 suites in 190m length. Thanks to this smaller size, as compared to usual monster mall cruise ships, it will be able to call at some of the sweeter, less traveled spots in the Caribbean and Med. And with this smaller scale, the inter-guest experience will be more interesting and the staff more personalized. It’s a Ritz-Carlton, so we know the service will be impeccable.  Private balconies, as opposed to little port holes, are a welcome improvement. Word is they are upping the food game with Michelin-starred chef Sven Elverfeld helming the restaurant. Civilized and stimulating all around, the way we like it. Reservations open next May for voyages beginning in 2019.
