Marriott International's loyalty program "Marriott Bonvoy" announced that The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection is joining the program effective November 9, 2021.

Translating the Ritz-Carlton experience to sea, Ritz-Carlton's cruise brand is expected to become one of the luxury travel industry's most exciting debuts, carving out a unique niche within the ship cruising industry. 

Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection, which will commence sailings to the Caribbean in 2022, is joining Marriott Bonvoy.

Marriott Bonvoy members can now earn and redeem points for cruises on the boutique Ritz-Carlton ships slated to begin May 6, 2022 (Evrima ship's Inaugural Cruise date).

According to Marriott, the company’s Elite-status members would enjoy an “elevated luxury experience” during the sailings, including amenities like private reception upon boarding. 

Evrima, Ritz-Carlton’s first yacht (2022), will start operations in the Caribbean, Central & South America this season, along with the Mediterranean. 

David Flueck (Marriott International's Senior Vice President, Global Loyalty) said it was exciting to expand their "unparalleled portfolio of travel experiences with The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection."

“Marriott Bonvoy offers more unique accommodations than any program and this new offering is an incredible addition for our most discerning members.”
