The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection has opened reservations for its newest yacht, Luminara, for its 2025 and 2026 sailing seasons. Ritz-Carlton says the yacht will explore 28 ports across 10 countries and visit a handful of popular destinations.

Let’s take a look at the itineraries and how to book!

Details on Ritz-Carlton Luminara 2025 and 2026 Seasons

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection Luminara boasts 226 suites and can accommodate up to 452 guests.

Between December 2025 and May 2026, Luminara will take guests on 10-to 15-night trips to Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Thailand, and more.

Some trips include a 14-night Singapore to Hong Kong sailing and a 10-night Tokyo round-trip sailing.

“As luxury travelers continue to seek unforgettable, personalized experiences around the world, we are thrilled to introduce voyages in the Asia-Pacific region,” commented Jim Murren, Executive Chairman and CEO of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. “These new itineraries exemplify our steadfast commitment to continually raising the bar in luxury cruising, offering innovative ways to experience our superyachts and explore vibrant local cultures across the globe.”

Bottom Line:

Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection first debuted the brand in 2022 with Evrima. Its second yacht, Ilma, will debut this year, while Luminara is slated to set sail in 2025.

About The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection 

Marriott debuted The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection back in the fall of 2022. This small-ship luxury line offers sailings to the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and, now, the Asia Pacific.

True to the brand, you’ll experience a high level of service and amenities on and off the yacht. Plus, you’ll have access to several types of shore excursions. Amenities include the Ritz-Carlton Spa and a marina with direct access to the sea.

The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection participates in the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program. That means you can earn and redeem points for your sailings.

You’ll earn 5x Marriott points per $1 spent on The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection fares and any hotel packages. These include participating Marriott locations booked through The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection. And you’ll likely earn a ton of points — given that sailings on the yachts range from $8,300 up to a whopping $17,300!

Final Thoughts

This is exciting news, as the Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection has finally opened reservations for Luminara and released sailing details for 2025 and 2026 in the Asia Pacific region.

No matter which option you choose, you’ll experience a luxury Ritz-Carlton experience at sea. However, be prepared to fork over a significant amount of cash.
