The Ritz-Carlton just debuted a luxury cruise line for the '1% of global travellers' and it looks insane

This week the Ritz-Carlton Hotel revealed plans for its luxury cruise line, with three ships aimed to set sea starting in late 2019. Somewhere between a private superyacht and a small ocean liner, these ships will accommodate the “the 1% of global travellers,” according to Bloomberg.

With larger rooms, more dining options, and common space for guests to relax onboard, the new The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection has been designed in an attempt to defy all cruise ship stereotypes.

“This unique combination of yachting and cruising will usher in a new way of luxury travel for guests seeking to discover the world,” said Herve Humler, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company in the press release. Ahead, a look at one of the designs for the cruise boat, created by the firm Tillberg Design of Sweden.
