Four Seasons 1 Review

Review of Four Seasons 1

The 2025-built Four Seasons I cruise ship is the first of all three identical-design superyachts representing a total investment of EUR 1,2 billion (400M per unit). The shipowner is Four Seasons Hotels Ltd (via its Miami-based subsidiary Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings Ltd) operating under the new cruise travel brand (2022-established/2026-inaugurated) Four Seasons Yachts.

The first Four Seasons vessel (IMO number 9988255) will be Malta-flagged (MMSI tba) and registered in Valletta.

The second ship (Four Seasons II) was ordered in June 2023 and slated for delivery in 2026-Q4 (December).


The shipowner's parent company Four Seasons Hotels Ltd (1961-founded, Toronto Canada-headquartered) is an international hospitality company. In 2007, Four Seasons Hotels Ltd's majority owners became Bill Gates (71,25% via Cascade Investment LLC/Kirkland WA USA-based) and Al-Waleed bin Talal Saud (23,75% via Kingdom Holding Company/Riyadh Saudi Arabia-based).

As of 2023, Four Seasons operates 124 hotels and resorts (plus 50 residential properties) in 47 countries in addition to 50+ projects (under planning or development) worldwide.

For the 3-yacht project, Four Seasons contracted the Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri. The contract with Fincantieri was signed on July 11, 2022.

The yacht design itself was developed by TDoS (Tillberg Design of Sweden). The deal with TDoS was signed on September 29, 2022. Besides Four Seasons, TDoS, and Fincantieri, the project also joined Prosper & Martine Assouline (1994-founded in Paris France lifestyle brand) and Martin Brudnizki Design Studio/MBDS (2000-founded, London England-based). Tillberg was contracted to design the yacht's exterior and staterooms, while MBDS designed the passenger areas.

The Four Seasons ships resemble the former Onassis' yacht which is currently named Christina O (IMO 8963818, MMSI 248383000/Malta-flagged) and owned by the Rarotonga (Cook Islands New Zealand)-based shipowner CHRISTINA LTD PARTNERSHIP. The structure housing the 4-story Funnel Suite is shaped to resemble the Christina Onassis yacht's funnel. Other similarities with the famous superyacht are the mast with sitcom equipment and the aft decks with swimming pools. The Christina Onassis ship was launched as HMCS Stormont (River-class frigate/warship, pennant number K327) and was commissioned by the Royal Canadian Navy in 1943-45 during WW2 (1939-45).

Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings Ltd (2020-incorporated in Valletta Malta company) is Four Seasons Yachts' Joint Owner and Operator. The company was established by Nadim Ashi (Founder, Owner and CEO of Fort Partners LLC/Miami Florida-based real estate ownership, development and management company in Fort Lauderdale Florida) and Philip Levine (Co-Owner of Starboard Cruise Services).

Larry Pimentel is Four Seasons Yachts' President and CEO, while Nadim Ashi and Philip Levine are Co-Executive Chairmen.

Marc-Henry Cruise Holdings LTD is Miami-based and responsible for the Four Seasons Yachts' sales and marketing, as well as for the fleet's marine and technical operations, vessel crewing, deployment strategy/itinerary planning.

Debuting in 2026 (the inaugural cruise is currently planned to start in January 2026), the ultra-luxury travel brand Four Seasons Yachts brings the Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts' legendary attentive and personalized service to the high seas.


These superyacht voyages are expected to provide the unique opportunity to enjoy the hospitality brand's luxury resort vacation lifestyle at sea.

The yacht travel experience is marked by the industry's highest crew-to-passenger ratio, exotic itineraries (with the option to be combined into B2Bs/back-to-back cruises for longer vacations), extended port stays (late-night departure and overnight stays for longer shore excursions and deeper land explorations.

Four Seasons Yachts' main rival is The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection.

Decks and Cabins

Four Seasons I staterooms (95 total) are all outside, with step-out balconies/terrace sundecks and in Suite categories. Around 60% of the passenger cabins are sized 76 m2/820 ft2 (indoor+outdoor space).

Each accommodation has floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall windows and direct access to a private terrace with padded furniture and low tables. The cabin ceiling's height is ~2,4 m/8 ft.

Designed as residential-style apartments, some suites are multi-level and most are adjoining, providing the opportunity to book a villa-like residence at sea.

Each stateroom is custom-designed and costs US$4,2 million (per unit) to build.

The largest stateroom is the 4-level Funnel Suite (spanning on 4 floors/decks 11-12-14-15) and positioned around the smokestacks. Its total size is 927 m2/9975 ft2, including 470 m2/5055 ft2 indoor plus 457 m2/4915 ft2 outdoor (terrace with a wading pool). The Quadplex Suite also features a private spa facility and top-deck sundeck. The Funnel Suite's top floor is also the ship's highest point.

After the Funnel Suite, the largest passenger accommodations are the Loft Suite (duplex/total 739 m2/7950 ft2), Portofino Suite (392 m2/4220 ft2), Malaga Suite (191 m2/2055 ft2), aint-Tropez Suite (162 m2/1745 ft2), Milos Suite (152 m2/1635 ft2), St Barths Suite (147 m2/1530 ft2). The yacht also has 16x Grand Ocean Suites (94-106 m2), 15x Ocean Suites ((83-94 m2), 15x Superior Seaview Suites (75-83 m2), and 42x Seaview Suites (50-57 m2).

Each Signature Suite has 2 or 3 bedrooms, a separate living room and dining spaces (indoor and outdoor 6-8-seat tables), a private sundeck (with a splash pool and outdoor shower). Signature Suites can connect to adjoining cabins accommodating more (8-10-11-12-14-20) guests.

All bathrooms are marbled throughout and with walk-in showers, double vanities and bathtubs.

Аdjoining staterooms have modular walls, offering various options (vertical and horizontal) combinations within the accommodation. The modular design (developed by Tillberg Design of Sweden/TDoS) unlocks 100+ different cabin connection options including the opportunity for ship charter clients (private and corporate) to reserve an entire side of a cabin deck, or up to 1200 m2/13000 ft2 of total living space.

The boat has 14 decks, of which 10 are with cabins.

Shipboard facilities and amenities

The cruise yacht has a total of 11 venues (restaurants and bars/lounges), all of which have floor-to-ceiling windows providing unobstructed sea views.

Four Seasons yacht's design allows ~50% more living space (per passenger) in comparison to other ultra-premium (all-suite) ships.

The multi-deck Atrium's lower level houses the Lobby Hall (served by its own bar), the Guest Services Desk (24-hour Reception and Tour Desk) and the Cruise Director's Office.

The wellness complex groups fitness and spa facilities (Thermal Suite, Relaxation Lounge, Beauty Salon, Saunas, Treatment Rooms/for massages), where Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts training, health and nutrition experts provide full services and certified programs. The Beauty Salon's professional staff provides services like manicure/pedicure, nailing, hairdressing, as well as barber treatments.

Positioned at the canoe-shaped stern, Deck 5 houses the industry's largest Pool Deck. The aft-facing sundeck has shaded seating areas and a large swimming pool (length 20 m/66 ft) surrounded by a leisure/relaxation area. In the evenings, the Pool Deck transforms into an outdoor Cinema/Beach Club/alfresco dining venue and also doubles as a private event space (for exclusive parties and celebrations).

. Lastly, the dual marina feature can also transform into an exclusive floating dining experience.

The port-to-starboard Yacht Marina (spanning from portside to starboard) is transversal/dual which allows unrestricted access to the four "sea limousines" (Ferretti RIVA tender boats for ship-to-shore passenger transportation) as well as to plenty of watersports activities while the ship is at anchorage/at sea or in port. The activities include snorkeling, scuba diving, jetskiing, sailboating, windsurfing, open-sea swimming (in a net-enclosed area), with the equipment and accessories/toys being provided complimentary. The Yacht Marina also facilitates alfresco dining (weather permitting).

The cruise company's "Lead With Care" program guarantees the safety and well-being of all its guests. The ship's Infirmary/medical facility is fitted with the latest medical equipment and professionally staffed with resident physicians and nurses on 24-hour duty.
