First Ritz-Carlton cruise ship makes its European debut

Evrima has entered service after a three-year delay

Originally set to debut in 2019, Ritz-Carlton’s first luxury mega yacht has welcomed guests in Barcelona for its first revenue cruise.

The seven-night voyage from Spain to France includes two-day visits to both Palma de Mallorca and Saint-Tropez before completing the journey in Nice. The Evrima also makes stops in the lesser visited ports of Alcúdia, Mallorca, and Antibes, between Cannes and Nice on the French Riviera.

In early November, the luxury vessel will sail additional voyages in the Mediterranean and the Canaries before crossing the Atlantic. The Evrima will then embark on Caribbean, South America and Bahamas itineraries as part of its 2022-2023 winter season. The cruises depart from several homeports, including Bridgetown, Barbados and San Juan, Puerto Rico.

In early February, the 298-guest vessel will make its US debut with a series of cruises departing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

According to Ritz-Carlton, all of the ship’s itineraries offer a leisurely cruise pace with more time in each port.

The 26,500-tonne vessel offers premium accommodations, including Loft Suites. The 12 two-story cabins are ideal for in-suite entertaining, with an expansive living area and two entrances.  

The vessel also features 10 dining venues, including an open-air steakhouse, a seafood restaurant and several speciality restaurants.

Evrima will be followed by two additional Ritz-Carlton luxury vessels in 2024 and 2025.
