Ritz-Carlton’s Evrima Completes First Year in Service


After welcoming The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection’s first guests on October 15, 2023, the Evrima just completed its first year in service.

As the first ship in the brand’s fleet, the luxury cruise vessel sailed from Barcelona to Nice on its maiden voyage.

The seven-night cruise included visits to different destinations in Spain and France. Among the ports of call were less frequent stops for cruise ships, including Alcúdia, Antibes and Saint-Tropez.

Continuing its inaugural season, the Evrima offered additional itineraries in the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands before crossing the Atlantic in early November.

The ship then sailed a series of itineraries to the Caribbean, which sailed from Puerto Rico, St. Maarten and Barbados also included ports of call in South America and the Bahamas.

Currently wrapping up its second summer program Mediterranean, the Evrima is scheduled to return to the Caribbean for the 2023-24 winter season.

With itineraries designed to feature more time in each port, the ship will offer a series of five- to seven-night cruises departing from Fort Lauderdale, Barbados, and Puerto Rico.

The deployment features visits to different ports of call, such as Portsmouth, in Dominica, Soufrière, in St. Lucia, and St. George’s, in Grenada.

In 2024, the ship is set to offer a third summer program in the Mediterranean. Joined by the new Ilma, the Evrima will sail varied itineraries across the European inner sea, featuring ports of call in the Greek Islands, the Holy Land, the French Riviera and more.

Originally set to debut in 2019, the Evrima was built at the Barreras Shipyard in Spain. Designed as a luxury mega yacht, the 298-guest vessel offers ample open deck space, in addition to an array of facilities.

Among them is a selection of ten culinary experiences, such as an open-air steakhouse, a seafood venue and several intimate specialty restaurants.
