For its inaugural season, Ritz-Carlton is offering 5 unique voyages...
1. Canada and New England Voyages: In autumn, nature paints this coastal landscape red and gold just for your viewing pleasure. Every voyage is an opportunity to discover storied waterways, quaint fishing villages and wildlife in its natural habitat. Sail past rolling farmland, towering evergreen forests and rugged coastlines, and up great waterways like the St Lawrence River. Halifax blends historic and cosmopolitan charm, while outside of the city nature lovers thrill at bear and moose sightings and whale watching. The coast of Maine captivates with its picturesque harbors, iconic lighthouses and lobsters pulled fresh from the sea.
2. Luxury Caribbean Voyages: Sugar sand, aquamarine water and colorful coral are just the start of a voyage through the islands in the sun. Adventure, history, festivals, customs and culture all combine to create the free and easy Caribbean experience. Sailing the warm Caribbean waters is the perfect way to experience this region, greeting every day with freedom and fresh eyes. From the pulsating tin drums of Tobago to the pastel-hued colonial buildings of Willemstad, from the breathtaking sunsets of Antigua to your new friends, the whales of Samaná, the Caribbean brings a smile to your face and peace to your soul before even stepping ashore.
3. Luxury Mediterranean Voyages:Colorful coastlines and turquoise waters welcome you to the Mediterranean. Sail into hidden harbors, then step ashore and immerse yourself in the stories of legendary explorers and the stunning, romantic beauty of villages that have been etched out by history. Rich with history, with monuments and ruins dating back to the earliest civilizations, the Mediterranean moves at a slower pace than its northern neighbors. Time-honored traditions dating back centuries intersect with the present day in the most engaging way.
