The Ritz-Carlton hotel company is planning on taking luxury to the high seas.

In 2017, the company announced the building of three superyachts that are intended to "usher in a new way of luxury travel," according to Herve Humler, the president and chief operating officer of The Ritz-Carlton said in a press release at the time. Bloomberg even called the planned cruises an experience for "the 1% of global travelers."

The first ship was initially slated to set sail in late 2019, but as Business Insider's Hillary Hoffower previously reported, the date was pushed to June 2020, and the ship is reportedly about $55 million over budget.

Even still, The Ritz-Carlton recently released the itineraries for the 2021 season. The routes are varied, with voyages in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean each lasting roughly seven nights. According to the report, the variation of port cities is meant to inspire guests to stay aboard for more than one voyage. The base price for one passenger on one voyage is $4,900.

The first ship set to sail, the Evrima, is somewhere between a private superyacht and a small cruise ship. It is designed to accommodate up to 298 guests across 149 suites, each with its own private terrace.

Here's a closer look at renderings of the vessel alongside descriptions of the recently announced routes.
